Fix it or Junk it?

I am conflicted on whether to fix or junk my aging Focus. 2002 model. 198,000+ miles on the odometer. Some rust around the bottom edges. I'm staring down an estimate of $970 in suspension, wheel-bearing, and ball-joint work. In addition, the windshield is cracked and needs replacing, the a/c does not function, and the anti-lock brake feature needs repair (light is lit). Tires are shot from the suspension problem, but I do have a set of winter tires I could run for a few months.

Fix it or junk it? What would you do?

Sometimes it's hard to know when to let go.
