>>>> I completely agree.
I also have a 92 with 190K miles on body, 100K on engine and 40K on tranny which I want to sell. Will probably sell it for .. well, not much, as it is a 2WD auto.
It doesn't need that much work, but the above statement is true. Fix it only if you can use it. Otherwise get back maybe 1/2 of it.

My general rule is, "Sell it to avoid fixing it, don't fix it to help sell it."
IOW, it's almost always a better idea to sell a car as-is and deeply discounted, than to try to add value to it by repairing it. Unless you can perform the repairs on the cheap (ie DIY).
