I doubt anywhere will give decent trade in anyway.
helpful info. Wasn't sure if there are many guys out there that buy/sell fix or not, and if they tend to pay more or less than salvage places would. I think I'd feel pretty good if I got of 1K for it.
Off to go look at cars right now. Hopefully will find something, then can pick up the Civic and deal with it.
$45 for a day rental of a trailer dolly which isn't too bad. Already had to tow it off the interstate to a park and lot that was right there though. Went that route because it bought me some time to consider options.
