i've got a '71 squareback that i have neglected horribly over the past year. it died in february and because i had no time or money, i haven't done anything about it until now. of course, the engine is now seized up. i'm at a loss for what makes the most sense on how to proceed, so i'm seeking some clarity...
should i accept my losses (perhaps as punishment for my neglect) and take what i can get for it for parts? or should i look at dropping a rebuilt engine in? or does anyone have any thoughts on this type of situation?
also, does anyone have any recommendations for places to get rebuilt engines? i'm in seattle, so local would be nice, but not required.

Not cheap but Sheffner Motors on 99 up around 217th has lots of squareback parts and they do a lot of VW resto and engine work. Bugaide is on 99 and 185th the shop there is good too. Helmut Auto in Bremerton rebuilt my engine for my 70' square 1600 cc. They did a great job. Not cheap though. Good luck Annie
