There is a Solution

Your first thought is to try to sell it, but after trying, you may be surprised that there’s just not a lot of money in older cars, especially if they don’t run. Someone may be buy it for parts or what not, but the truth is, that’s a lot of trouble, and it’s unlikely you’ll get what you want out of it.

So what do you do? Well, the best option is to recycle it. Recycling cars is similar to recycling other things, only you have to find someone to take it.
