1997 Cadillac Seville V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 105000 miles

my mother has a the '97 cadillac norhtstar syst. The car has recently blown a headgasket and she is worried it is going to be more than its worth to have it repaired. I just saw on ebay a headgasket kit is only $103.00 but is it worth it to try to have this work done. The car only has a 105,000 miles on, brand new fuel pump, water pump, and battery. How much does a fix like this cost, labor wise. Should we just junk the car, she seems to think so. Thanks

Keep in mind, that it is not the headgasket that failed, that is just the collateral damage. The threads for the head bolts are more than likely pulled. This requires thread inserts and more labor/money.
