I need some advice- RR LWB

Guys,
In addition to my D90, my wife drives our 95LWB with our 2 small children. I just came back from my mechanic and he tells me it's leaking coolant ($1500 head gaskets) and oil from everywhere.... no price quoted. We have driven this amazing vehicle to 135k miles.

We think our options are put the money into it and have it repaired (my wife is not all that big on this idea as she feels there will be something wrong after that - and i think she is angling for a Disco II)

Sell as is and buy something else (I probably can't scrape up much over 10k to put into a vehicle - used disco)

or....


Just looking for some council as i am sure we have all faced this dilema.....

Are u in love with it? Yes, then reasoning does not count.
If not, go to Edmunds.com or KBB and identify a used price.
If it is close or higher than the repair, sell.
OR donate it to a charity as is and take the IRS deduction
