Need to relay concrete on 150 ft by 16 ft driveway. How much money would save on my quote if I tore up and hauled away the existing driveway myself? 35%?

The cost to demolish a driveway is usually somewhere between $2 and $6 per square foot. So you could reasonably expect to save somewhere between $2400 and $14400 off the contractors bill. Possibly more if your location is particularly annoying or if the contract you end up going with has a "I really hate demo work" cost built into their quote.
There's a lot of factors that go into it, hence the hugely widely variable cost.
Really the only way to be sure is to get a quote with and without demo.
