Milano

I have a Milano that's been sitting out in the driveway for 16 years. Very rusty. Is there any sense trying to sell it for parts to a junk yard or should I be paying somone to take it?

Where are you located?

Rust is the biggest killer of our cars. Given reasonable care the drivetrain is pretty sturdy. I've read that the junkyard rule is good motors are cheap - the demand is low and the supply is high. I fear a rusty Milano is not going to be worth very much unless you find someone local who needs a few otherwise hard to find bits.

I have a low mileage 1987 Milano Silver and think that the car is only worth about 5K. The car is a California car, two owners, no rust, 100K mileage and works and looks great. I bought a 3 liter engine for $500.00.

If you have the time and inclination these cars are worth more dead than alive, unfortunately. You could start disassembling the bits that are in higher demand, and use the car as a storage shed. Sell what you can before having the terminally rusted shell towed away. If it's been in the yard for 16 years, a little longer shouldn't matter.
