Sell or part out MB w124?

Hey everyone,
I have recently run into a major number of problems with my MB w124 including an oil leak, new motor mounts needed, slow ignition/start and a transmission that is on the verge of going out. It is a 90 300e with 134k miles on it. I was wondering would it be a better idea to sell it outright or to part it out? The interior is in great condition except for a front drivers seat rip and the exterior is also in pretty good condition. I appreciate any feedback as it has been hard for me to decide to let go of this benz, but as you can see the costs outweigh the benefits of fixing it.

Thanks Guys,

Rejuvenation might not cost as much as you think. Have you gotten a second opinion from any of the good Indy shops in Atlanta?
