What to do with my German lawn ornament?
 
So recently, a family friend wrecked a 92 325i sedan and, knowing I'm a BMW enthusiast, decides to give it to me. The only thing I know about it is that it's got 101k miles and at the very least needs a new hood, front bumper, passenger fender, headlights and a grill. That's the jist of the damage from the wreck. So here I am with this 20 year old junked 325i and I have no idea what to do with it. Should I invest any money into it or just sell it as it is? What would you do? Please shed some insight, much appreciated. The engine runs fine and it seems that if the damage were repaired it would be fine, the interior is in good shape, but it would never be worth what I put into it, so I'm in a bit of a pickle. Any input on this situation?

I guess part out is the best option.

Build a cheap track/drift/auto-x car. Couple hundred in junkyard parts to fix the cosmetics, a few hundred in suspension upgrades ... drive the crap out of it and you can always turn a profit when you no longer want it.
