As much as I am a fan of over exaggeration and making blanket statements, I can’t get over the statement in the title of this next advertisement. The seller lists it as “best deal on craigslist”. Seriously? Let’s take a look at the local competition. Is it a better deal than this ’78 RX7 barn find for $3500? Is it a better deal than a manual gearbox equipped 03 Legacy Outback for $2000? What about this ’89 240SX that needs some work for $3800? That’s about it for the Sacramento area craigslist…so maybe this is the best deal. Find this 1992 Infiniti M30 Convertible offered for $3900 in Folsom, CA via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!
Anyone who reads this site knows that I’m not often left speechless…but here I am…at a loss for words. I’m also not one to just put a turd in someone else’s punch bowl just for the sake of it…but I’m also not one to beat around the bush. This is not a BMW 5-series or BMW 6-series…(which you can get for next to nothing) these days…so why would you drive this? Because this is America and we take our freedom seriously and our cars not so seriously…at least you’d have to, if this was your daily driver. Find this 2002 Toyota Solara with a starting bid of $3900 in Versailles, KY via eBay.
The Fox body Mustang was a huge breath of fresh air when it was released in 1979 and it returned the Mustang to a proper long-hood short-rear pony car shape. I think that the design has aged well and if you are looking for an inexpensive convertible that’ll seat 4 people and be fun to drive…it doesn’t get much better than a well preserved Fox. Find this 1988 Ford Mustang Convertible offered for $4500 in New York via classiccars.com. Tip from Barbpaddles.
The convertible pickup might have seemed like a novel idea when the Dakota Sport was released in 1989…but then you start thinking about the horse drawn wagon…which was pretty much a convertible pickup since man first domesticated horse in the Bronze age, and then you think about the first mass produced vehicle..yup, the Ford Model T Runabout was a convertible pickup. So…yeah…nothing new is really ever new, just rebranded and adjusted for inflation. Find this 1989 Dodge Dakota Sport Convertible offered for $8,500 in Dallas, TX via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!
You might attempt to adjust your glasses when you first look at this next thing…but they are likely fogged up from your mask…take yer mask off for a few minutes (if you aren’t afraid of Big Mask coming after you) and gaze at the glory that is a convertible Honda CRX. It looks like an […]
You don’t have to be an expert in the automotive market to see how cheap used Boxsters have become — it probably has something to do with Porsche stamped them out like boxes of number 2 pencils headed to your local dollar mart. Various interweb sources claim something like 160,000 of the 986 designated convertibles […]
The 3rd generation (internally called A60) Celica was the final rear-drive chassis to use Toyota’s Celica name. The next generation used a transverse front-drive setup that has become a de facto standard for economy cars, but up through 1985 you could get a Celica from the factory with a longintudinal engine and right wheel drive. […]
Pickup trucks are the working dogs of the automotive world…and for decades they were strictly form-follows-function work machines. But then auto designers started to get creative to sell things like pickups that were built from cars (the El Camino and Ranchero) and even performance pickups (SVT Lightning…etc)..and Dodge even went as far as to built […]
The Cadillac Allante (Allanté) was another attempt by one of the big three cash in on the allure of the European import; think Chrysler TC by Maserati or AMC Eagle Premier — but with an accent in the name causing grief for search features and web indexing in the future. I also can’t help but […]
The Lotus Elan M100 was a wedge shaped convertible penned by Peter Stevens (Jaguar XJR-15, McLaren F1, Lotus Esprit, MG ZR, ZS, ZT & TF) and built in the UK from 1989 through 1995. The Elan was later produced by Kia in South Korea under the name Kia Elan (and Kia Vigato). The Elan was […]
