Would you replace the engine in this car for $4500 or get rid of it?

My friend asked me this question earlier today, I’m just looking for other opinions.

This vehicle is a 1999 SAAB convertible.He paid 00 for the car 1 year ago, and has spent about an additional 00 in repair on the car already, including a new convertible top,brakes,tires, and a few other repairs . The exterior and interior of the car are pristine.

He had already invested almost ,000 into this car.Now it may need a new engine.

Would you sink another ,500 into a car of this age,considering he already spent 10 grand?

Also is ,500 a fair price for labor and a reconditioned engine?

Thank you for your help-Rachel
