I have a '99 Ford that is on its last legs - 150,000 miles. Still runs well but will need more and more repairs. I want to get rid of it. Blue book value is $1700 - $2500 depending on condition. Carmax will give me $750.I recently heard an ad on a radio station about donating a car for tax write off. I know that laws changed last year - I think you can only write off what the organization actually gets for your car rather than putting in a blue book value. I was trying to figure out which of two options would make most sense from a financial standpoint?My wife and I itemize about 20,000 each year. Any input would be appreciated.Frank
