If it's free, of course it's worth it. Duh. :P


If you want to sell it, I'm sure someone would be happy to get their hands on it and restore it. But a '78 Impala with a bad exterior condition isn't going to sell for that much, so you're not going to get a better vehicle out of it, IMHO.

What's the mileage on it?

She won't tell you the mileage? Okey-dokey.

Basically, if the car is reliable and comftorable for you to drive, keep it, if not, sell it and buy something else.

It's free so keep it. Who cares what it looks like. Smooth idle, good tires, and good brakes are all I need.

Wow, that's even older than my car (1984 Buick Century) and sounds better. Keep it.

Keep it. If it's super bad on gas, look at getting rid of it, but don't rush into cars. I did and I've been burned on a few deals and now I really pay for it. Trust me.
