    Depends on how you attached you are to the car. If you don't want to see it go, buy a cheep DD, and rebuild it. I did. Bought a cheep 91 Suburban with a bad tranny and a bycycle just to get me around.

    if you still want the car find a complete running engine and have it put in that will probably be less expensive than buying a "cheap" car if you dont want it anymore cut your losses and sell it as is

    It's not that you "can't" do the work. You're just intimidated by it. So is everyone when they first start. Look at it this way. If you tear into it and mess something up what's gonna happen?? The car won't run. What's it doing now? Not running. Get some tools and tear into that thing. If you can read and understand the concept of righty tighty.....lefty loosey then you can do it.
