#6 of 25 Trying to dispose of '86 Toyota Camry hatchback
Feb 15, 2007 (6:30 pm)
My faithful '86 Toyota Camry hatchback finally threw in the towel (alternator gave out, and a couple of other problems). I've been trying to find a charity that's willing to accept it for salvage but haven't had any success. Do you have any suggestions for best way to dispose of the car?

Try looking up like the disabled vertrans people and charities like that, will take the car and sell it for parts or whatever.

I have not used these people yet ... until tomorrow.
Try junkmycar.com. No charge to pick up and dispose of the vehicle. (You also do not get anything for it.)

Call the National Kidney Foundation or look up your local chapter online. They are taking our 94 Camry, which has failed transmission & broken axle. They pick up (tow) the car from your home, and auction it. The funds they raise by auctioning the cars help dialysis & transplant patients. They will mail you a receipt for the amount your car sold for, and you can write it off on your taxes!
You can get rid of your car and help someone else at the same time! Good Luck!

If you need to get rid of a car that is non-functioning, I recommend "JUNKMYCAR.com" which picked up my old beater in Milwaukee.

Thanks everyone. At least the top end is shot and I've been counseled to either give my 1992 Audi A6 to the junk yard or find and engine. Please help? The car is immaculate in every other way and just doesn't belong at the junkyard. What should I do? Where should I go? Where can I find?

Do a google seach for import salvage yards. Should be able to find one that way.

My advise? Junk it!
It's a fifteen year old Audi.
Few cars are more troublesome. The cost of buying and installing a good used engine (if you can find one)exceed the value of the car by a lot.
Then, what will break next?
