I personally would keep the engine and find a decoy for its replacement. A vast majority of women have no clue as to what you have. Why throw good money down the endless Attorney black hole? Strike a deal with the ex and split 50/50. If she is a nut case cut your losses and fade away. Brad

Brad is RIGHT! I had a nasty separation and she actually thought she would benefit from the sale of my T Type. I had the car long before I met her. The lawyer advised me to move it to a relative and I did. She could not prove that I bought the car with her.....:). She really looked stupid in court....the DMV report did not lie... Ex's do!!!!

Try to come to terms with her. Sit down and talk in a public place, no screaming/yelling, take no emotions to the table, this is now a business deal. Explain to her that you are willing to be fair and split whatever.
I did this myself with 2 kids involved in 2004, I gave her the house with almost 100k in equity. Total cost of the divorce with both of us using the same attorney, uncontested...$800.00...done and over, final divorce decree in 3 months.

Good luck

5K are you crazy that stuff is only woth about $500. Sell it to me for $500 and let me know when you want it back .
My ex wanted all my stuff including my limited. That car was torn down right away. Dont sell your stuff or car parts and word to the wise padlock your garage door so nobody can get in. Sh!t will get ugly fast .Trust me I have been through this before. Lawyers take payments. Tell him you work on cars. I swapped alot of labor for my divorce but it was worth it. Phoneguy is right.Try to sit down with her first and see what it will take.Keep your cool. Its not going to be easy. As soon as the conversation starts getting loud walk away and be the better person. Dont say anything to degrade her or anything you will regret later. I have seen people go through this and get back together. So keep it cool. I know how you feel right now and it sucks. Keep the car because your going to need something to occupy your mind. I feel for your pain but trust me it gets better. Good luck

If you wish, ask me how I know to give the following advice after you read it......

If you guys have decided to call it quits, there's no more reason to fight. You no longer owe her ANY part of you, what-so-ever. You no longer owe her any of your emotions, good OR bad. Starve her of any of the intimate part of you she is familiar with.

Sit down with her, be humble, be alouf and be strong.

Find out what she really wants to take away from dividing the assets of the union and then just give and take. You'll end up doing the same thing via expensive lawyer in court, so you might as well try to work it out between you now.

Don't let her wind you up. Remember, no matter what she says, now you can just turn and walk away . SHE HAS LOST HER POWER OVER YOU.

You don't have to agree, and you don't have to disagree. You just need to get through this particular discussion. The discussion you two are currently engaged in, the "battle" so to speak, and if walking away and picking it up later is what must happen, do it.

This, or any other one particular discussion won't decide the "war". It will take many to come to a truce.

If you must, leave her there simmering in it. Go back later and try again.

Eventually she will understand that arguing and pushing your buttons won't work for her anymore. She will find that she will have to actually sit down with you (with or without lawyers) and work a deal out.

Oh, she WILL try to push EVERY button. Don't buy into her negativity and by all means, don't feed into it. You're going to want to, believe me, but DON"T DO IT!

And if there are kids involved, the fighting REALLY needs to stop.

Divorce F's kids up, no matter what, it F's them up. try to do as little damage as possible.

Be civil to each other for them. Dislike each other all you want, but don't involve the kids. It's not their fault you two can't find a way to get along anymore. Remember this and you're 3/4's of the way there.

Good luck to you!

5K are you crazy that stuff is only woth about $500. . . . . .

The estimated price of $500 is about right.
Now you can show it to your lawyer for value determination from the world's largest expert board.
So the split is $250, which should take care of that.

Hopefully, there will be LOTS of thumbs up for this post signifying “expert agreement” of the value "As is", which in turn can be used for the case.

Well it's been 5 weeks. We were together for a long time 25+ years. I had a real bad wreck about 6 years ago and as soon as the money was gone so was she. I have a TBI and have spent more money on my doctor in the last five weeks than I have in the last three years. I have been asking god to help me not get vandictive, but I spend every waking hour thinking about her and the little I do sleep I dream about her. I have had the sleep disorder since my accident, but I do not know how I am going to get through this. There is alot more going on then her just leaving, she set me up over the last year real good. I really appreciate all your kindness and I have hired a great attorney and we are going to try to settle this as I have made her a written offer that is fair. So we will see how it goes.

Thanks to all.

I told my son I would never get married again, but then I retracted and told him if hhe seen me driving a Bentley, I may have changed my mind.

I don't have any kids or any "other halves" and I understand. After my last girlfriend sucking $5K out of me in a month I gave up on them.:mad: Wish I could say otherwise but so far the only good woman is one that's burried, just like a snake.:oops:

A Turbo Regal can suck 5K out of you in about a half second if you do it up right........:oops:

Keep the car. Get it running like you always wanted. And make sure she sees you riding around in it with a big smile on your face. Don't be fair to her she left, she can take care of herself. Don't give her a damn dime you don't have to.

Sorry you have to go through that, it sucks and yes I have been there. Life is too short to be miserable. Go do what you want to do and be happy.

So that set up wont work on a 86 or 87 model. Or is it just the pipes headers that wont work?
