Exclamation Advice for getting rid of junked car

i have 99 lexus rx 300 w 150,000. the tranny just went out after i had $2000 worth of worth just done on it - LAST WEEK. itll be 4200 to replace the transmission so ive said screw it.

i need some advice on getting rid of this car and getting some money out of it s i can buy a new one. it has a lot of new and semi used parts in it that a mechanic could sell off . . any suggestions ? ?

thanks im into some bad luck right now and could use some educated words. . .

shittiest part is i suspected the trans was going out a month ago and had lexus look at it and they insisted it was just an ignition coil

No dobt somebody who has a gargae or facilities and know-how to replace the transmission themselves, will buy it at a knock-down price...Shouldn't be to hard if the price is right!

If you really don't want it, I will cover shipping and take it off your hands, I have a range of transporter companies that can pick it up as long as the car moves.
