Why aren't you doing the only real thing that ever pulls total value out of a car, or driving it to 300K miles?

Myself, I always keep at least one other car for a backup if needed to work on the 'good' one. It can save you thousands if one is pointed toward doing his own work.

Of course if CVT that would be the only thing getting in the way of that.

Good question.. I have 2 vans and truck lol.. already

That was the goal at first but just didn't find time to drive it. But between winter and the pandemic the car was just parked

Gotta wonder why redundant vans and truck with gas being high, I'd be driving the car more. Unless the mods eat enough gas to even things out.

I have kept 3 and usually 4 cars running at all times for 50 years now and I do 100% of my own work, nobody ever touches the cars. But that is pretty extreme, most can't go there. I even do trans and engine rebuilds and let them go to scrapyard once I tire of one

Of course, yours and do as you will.

Well we have 5 kids.. the wife drives the new van I drive the 2nd van as daily and we live in NY truck is for the winter.

Living in NY city it's hard to have multiple cars. Most only have one maybe two.

IMO, if the car is in good running condition, sell it outright rather then parting it out. Do some market research like from N.A.D.A and Kelly Blue Book to determine a market value for your car.

I double that. A pieced out car gets in the way and if stored outside the city will get on you about it. A lot more viable idea if one lives out in the sticks where people can't tell you what to do.
