Is it worth taking used parts in for scrap?

I have my stock manifolds and all the stock exhaust and suspension pieces. You think they are worth any money to turn in?

You get virtually nothing for scrap steel. If you have the room to keep them, the next owner of your car may appreciate getting the original parts. Otherwise you can take them into a recycling center and be lucky if you get $15.

List them on Craigslist, somebody may need them. . Steel/iron pays between 8-10 cents a pound. It never hurts to hang on to them in case you need them or want to sell the car in stock form.

Someone will want the manifolds for porting so that they won't be without a ride for a week. Sell 'em online. Maybe auction them on eBay with a Buy it Now option, or list them here in the classified section.
