Should I keep or sell my Mk2 Golf?

I bought my 1990 Volkswagen Golf from new in September 1990. It has alloy wheels, sunroof, radio cassette, CD player and 113,000 miles on the clock. It runs well and garaged every night, although there are some interior cosmetic defects.
Should I keep this car or sell it? If sell what price do you think I should ask?

If no rust, keep it. Not a GTI, but a rust-free Mk II is worth hanging onto. All it lacks in the anchors department is ABS, which is no big deal. Don't retard the ignition. Advance it to the original setting, then run on Shell V-Power Nitro Plus or another 97-99 Ron Super. That will keep the fuel system clean.
