Breaking point

I have a L-reg W124 Mercedes E220 coupe which has 100k on the clock. It’s red with full black leather interior. The car has given me no problems at all during four years of daily use and it was owned by my friends father before me. It is now surplus to requirements as I have a dog and use a boring Honda estate instead. The red exterior paint has faded, there is rust everywhere, the boot leaks. But it just keeps going and going (like the Plymouth in the film ‘Christine’). Should I scrap it, advertise it for sale as it is (if so where) or contact a Merc specialist who might use it for spares?
