I would if we were still at our old place.I had a shop and three covered carports.I just hate for it to sit out.Just thought someone else could finish it and enjoy it.

Problem is even parting it out, I'd be surprised if anyone is willing to pay more than 300 for the turbo, again the interior will fall to being the most valuable part.
Starions are money pits, normal maintenance items like struts, brakes and bushing do not add to value, only decrease value drop. With bad struts and bushings it would have been a 1k-1500 car in my opinion. However everyone's opinion is different, as well as value per area

Yes they are pits.One thing is for sure is nobody including myself don't give much for parts on this site in order to help everybody keep them running.I have been watching prices that do sell on eBay the last six months.It would take a year or better to piece it out.Maybe help someone keep theirs going a little while longer.Who knows what the new year will bring.

Yep. eBay will bring MUCH more than SQC...I hate to deprive SQC members of parts but some parts just flat out bring surprising amounts on eBay

Lots of people who don't know about SQC just turn to eBay to buy these limited semi-rare parts that they can't find in a junkyard.

Some of these parts prices posted on eBay are laughable.

Yes they are.  But occasionally they do sell. Check completed listings.  Some used crap is actually selling.  

I've seen a used PS pump sell for $149 free s/h

It's crazy.  Do people even shop around? Rock auto has them for less than $100.

It is crazy but the bottom line some are selling for good money.Don't know where to start on pricing other than looking at an average sell listings.

Sorry to hear about your car if paint job is the problem places like macco painting run specials couple hundred bucks  “ looks sell cars” u can have the best of everything in a car and a lot of people won’t buy  unless it looks good. Not saying that’s smart but it’s true.. if you do parts It I’m looking for a lot of stuff let me know. Good luck

I have had two red ones painted at maaco and actually did a good job,but the body work is where they get you.It has some hail damage,little work on air dam,small place in rear bumper.Plus they would have to send old paint back down to at least original paint.I was figuring roughly with the five year warranty it would be around 1500.Not bad just don't have it right now.It will be posted at some point.
