FS: 380SE engine

I will have a US 380 engine coming out of my car in the coming weeks (in ATL). Anybody in need of one? I'm trying to swing some way to store it back home (anybody know what shipping would be to MD?) but it doesn't look like that will pan out. I'd hate to scrap it, because while it does have 156,000 original owner miles on it, it runs strong and turns over from cold faster than our '02 porsche. It did fail the last MD emissions test, but the fuel mixture was off then (I haven't re-tested since correcting the mixture so I don't know, but it does run strong and well). Yeah, with the hood open it does make a little tapping noise, but I think it's just the noises of the engine because it goes all the way up to top speed...plus I'm not looking for much money. Make me an offer.
