I've had the car 3 yrs. So far I've replaced radiator, gas tank, CV joint, ball joint, tires, ignition. Now it needs struts and the rear window won't stay in the ragtop, which also won't go up. It runs hot in traffic too. It leaks oil and also has a tranny seal leak. It's rusty and has no air conditioner and needs paint but all in all, it runs decent. It will be a classic in 1-1/2 yrs. and even if the engine blows, I can use any chrysler van engine in it. Should I continue to fix it considering it's saved me a car payment every month, or cut my losses and take on payments I can't afford?

For what it will cost you to FIX UP this car, you can buy a desent used Toyota Corolla, or similar vehicle! If you like this vehicle, keep it to fix up at a later date. Or sell it for just what ever you can get. As you stated, it's paid for itself.
For now I think you would be better off putting that repair money into another ride. Either way you go, you are looking at monthly payments for repairs or another car. However, repairs are something you can do in degrees as you get the money, or it becomes nessessary, unless it is a major break down! This is just my opinion.
Flip a coin i guess!
