Light dents and scuffs on driver-side rear wheel-well (courtesy of my wife)

Other than the aforementioned, the car is stock. After my last battery replacement, she started like a champ, but gradually has been getting stubborn again. Other than a low idle (consider the O2 sensor and catalytic convertor status), she has still been pulling pretty strong while driving. I was about to drop some money into fixing all the big stuff (cat+exhaust, O2 sensors, solenoids, front plastic pieces, new coils/springs), but she puttered out during idle just after starting a few days ago, and I decided I'm just ready for a newer vehicle. She still won't start - I'm no stranger to deflooding, and this just sounds different. I did try briefly to deflood (just in case), but didn't like the sound of the starter, so I stopped. So, If you're looking for a parts car or a project/track car, this might be for you. I'm not interested in parting it out myself. I have not checked the engine compression, but as I mentioned she still drove great - just a crappy idle. You'll want to plan on towing it - won't start + no longer registered or insured. No Western Union or other weird stuff like that, obviously.
