Selling an Old CarYou can offer your car directly to auto wrecking yards. Create a flyer listing what is desireable about your truck and fax or deliver it to wrecking yards. Tell them you are accepting bids and give them a time and day to respond. The salvage value could be $500-600. They will come tow it away.

You could also donate it if you itemize your taxes and can use the write off.

There are a few States that offer vehicle retirement programs Ca, & NJ, I know offer this program. Check the dmv web site & then look under the smog section. Ca offers $1000 to retire your vehicle. There are a few restrictions though.

Additional answer:

Craigslist or ebay. Take a few good photos, write an accurate description, BE HONEST, and someone will buy your car knowing fully well what's wrong with it. They may be set up to either repair it, or have a similar car and use yours for parts. This is a much better alternative than a salvage yard, because a private owner will almost always be willing to pay more than a junkyard whose offer is based more or less on current scrap metal price. Again, be honest and there is nothing to be embarrassed about when advertising it.

If It's really on its last legs than you can sell it for parts and you might make more money.

In Virginia can a credit company repossess your car and still demand the money owed above the value of the car?

When your car is repossessed, they sell it for what they can get. Value has nothing to do with what price it brings. They simply get what they can. You are then responsible for the difference in the amount they sell the car for and the balance on the note. Your credit is then ruined for 7 years. This is why having a car repossessed is a horrible idea, and should be a last resort.

Has anyone ever put sawdust in an auto engine?

if you mean as a last ditch method, yes, but not in the engine. if you have a slipping transmission, and the car is on its last legs anyway, you can put sawdust in the transmission fluid to help them grab so that you can make it home or to the junkyard. I've personally seen mechanics do this to sell a car and have gotten to a lot of trouble. if you put it in the engine, there's little it will do, other than clog the oil filter.
