I'm in a similar situation right now. My motorhome is broken down in 
Ogden Utah, and I need to get it to Klamath Falls, Oregon. The cheapest 
I can get it towed is $2k (700 miles+needs to pass through two Point of 
Entry roadblocks due to it's size.) Add in the cost of repairs and I'm 
better off selling that one for scrap, re-selling the extra engine that 
is sitting in K Falls, and buying a new one.

Yet the sentimental value of the thing skews the entire equation, not to 
mention the time and work I put into it already. Add in the fact that 
I'm still on the Government dole for unemployment and it becomes harder 
to justify the cost.
