DONATE Your Car!

The majority of our visitors are here to view old ads about old cars. We realized we were in the unique position to help spread the word about the importance of donating old vehicles to charity. Many legitimate charities accept donations of old vehicles whether running or not. The advantages of donating your vehicle are numerous:

  • Most charity organizations provide free pickup of your vehicle, usually within a few days of your call.
  • All registered charity organizations will provide you a tax receipt of fair market value for your donated vehicle.
  • Avoid the hassle of trying to sell your old beater yourself, placing expensive ads, scheduling appointments, and dealing with just plain tire kickers.
  • The costs of restoring or repairing your old vehicle may outweigh the tax deduction you could receive from your donation.
  • You will feel good.

All kinds of vehicles are good candidates for charity vehicle donation.

Just imagine, that old clunker in your backyard that your wife is bugging you about is actually of benefit to someone. It can feed homeless children in South America, clothe hurricane disaster victims in Texas, purchase delivery vans for blood transfusion clinics in Utah, and maybe help in finding a world wide cure for cancer. Not bad for a bucket of rust?
