Car is in the shop, looks like $600 in clutch work. And I spent two weeks under it just replacing the clutch cable, hoping beyond hope (and reality, I suppose) that that would be the problem [solved]. It just has to make it to burning man and back, and then I can sell it. Hopefully get some of my outlay back. $700 for the car, $600 in clutch work, $100 in miscellany with the clutch cable and such, $600 for six months' insurance. Maybe this wasn't the best idea. Hopefully I can get reimbursed on the insurance I don't use when I cancel after two months.
