    1995 Buick Skylark

    "The engine has gone bad on this. It only has 142,000 miles on it but the lifters are bad and there's another clunking sound in the engine. It will usually start and it can run but the tailpipe fell off, so we just parked it and are looking to junk it. We still have the tailpipe with it. It has tiny spots of hail damage but nothing bigger than, say, a nickel. "

  • Gary's 1976 Dodge Pickup

    "This vehicle was left in my garage by a previous tenant and the court has granted a writ of possession allowing me to remove his possessions and recover any costs I have incurred. It has been sitting at least six months, so I'm not sure how easily it will start and I don't have keys."

  • Jennifer's 2000 Chevrolet Cavalier
    2000 Chevrolet Cavalier

    "The trunk needs repaired and someone cracked my dash panel inside trying to take the radio (I have the radio still, took the face off so no one else would try taking it). I have severe health issues and I need to raise funds for treatment. I need to junk this car for as much as possible. I won't need it. It runs, I have the title. I own it outright. It's not pretty."
