Don't have money for repairs to pass inspection, what do I do?

Car needs to pass annual inspection in Pennsylvania. Turns out I need $1000+ in repairs, and I paid $1400 for the car itself (valuable lessons about buying used cars learned). I can't afford this and it doesn't make sense anyway. I need a car. What are my options?

Here's what I see:
- Find "Take the Money and Run" inspection place (I live in Philadelphia so theoretically this should be possible, but where?)
- Sell car, buy car with what I can get
I don't know if the first is possible, and the second will leave me with an even crappier car than I already had. Are there any other options?
(inspection due at the end of the month--I know, I know, shouldn't have left it this long)
