My poor car is done.

Hi all,
I am here to try and not let this car go to the crusher.
Its my baby 2001 e38 iL with 6 Mpars and Highline interior.
The short story is it needed a trans gear location module and I parked her a year ago till I had time.
3 weeks ago we had a huge storm that took down a big tree crushing our vintage perfect 80k 1991 miata and my e38.
The miata was insured the e38 was not as it was parked.
I cannot bring myself to let it go to the salvage yard (they offered $260) and I know someone will want the 6 MPars (4 fronts, on the car and 2 big rears, not on the car) or the Highline insides, or the Sport Wheel. The motor has 175k.
I could part it but don't have time and really want it to go to a home.

I hope I am not breaking forum rules here but someone has to want it for a reasonable price. It really needs a home...at least the wheels...
If your interested its in Nashville, TN. Just reach out to me.
D.J.

Wow so sorry for your loss. A beautiful car for sure. Good luck with the part out, as I think you will have better luck recovering your loss and making sure parts go to good use vs crushed

Thanks,
But to be clear I am not posting this here to try and part her out.
I'm hoping to find someone that wants the complete car with all the extras and can use it.
I Am Not looking to clean up money wise either.
