Angry Some Mondays Really S**K

The first pic is what it was. The next pics are what it is. Does anyone know of a good non runner or barely running 123 for me? I have a son and very lucky doughter inlaw that really need some help right now They're barely making ends meet and a rain slick road nearly took her life.

Exclamation Thank God they are alive!!!

Shame about the car, but it died in a good cause and did its job to the end.
Which is more than I can say of most new rolling scrap metal...
I will check my contacts 10/21/2004.
I know that one of them just got in three 300SD...
Can you go $500.00 to $800.00 for a good runner???
