Here's the story, the ex-girlfriend just called me the other day saying that her car was smoking up a storm. She just paid $700 to have a brand new radiator put in the car and another $700 to put a new exhaust on the car. The smoke was blowing out of the back of the car, so immediately I thought of a headgasket. The body of the car is in good condition. Back when I was last with her, around 6months ago, there wasn't any rust on the car but she said there might be some little surface spots by the rear wheel wells. 155,xxx miles. Auto. Blue. Looks like a blown headgasket. Whats she worth? I was hoping that it would be worth atleast $500 for her to help get her into another beater car until she graduates from school. The girl is putting herself through school at Penn State and is in her senior year, so finances are really tight. She needs a car to commute to work though.
