This next car isn’t something that’ll break records at the Nürburgring…in fact, it probably wouldn’t make a complete lap without stopping for a repair or two, but that shouldn’t stop you from owning one of the coolest cars to ever come out of the Rootes Group factory in England. The seller of this car doesn’t include many pictures or specs, but the Husky is powered by a 1.4 liter inline-4 that will propel this little wagon from zero to 60mph in just under 27 seconds on the way to a blistering top speed of 73.4 mph. Eat your heart out McLaren. Find this 1962 Hillman Husky Series II offered for $5000 in Rochester, NY via eBay.
In the world of used military vehicles, many are cheap (at least per pound) but few are actually usable in a typical urban environment. That M35 deuce and a half certainly looks mean, but it’ll burn through fuel like the space shuttle and forget trying to park it on the street in front of your neighbor’s house. This next little jewel is a Laplander from the Swedish army collection and is small enough to park in your garage, but rugged enough to park in your neighbor’s back yard…after driving through some bushes, a creek, and maybe their fence. Find this 1962 Volvo Laplander L3314A offered for $9,850 in Apopka, FL via eBay.
I hate to be known as the guy who raved about how good a deal the Cossie powered Vegas are (were?) until prices increase to the point where they aren’t a good deal…but these DOHC 2.0 liter 4-banger powered Cosworth Vegas are rad, rare, and roarty. Find this 1975 Chevrolet Vega Cosworth bidding for $3751 […]
I am going to try and write a feature without mentioning the coronavirus…arggg…I already broke that promise by even mentioning the thing. Okay, rewind…let’s try again. The Ford Maverick was sold starting in 1970 as a replacement for the oldschool Falcon and it sold in decent numbers through 1977 when it was replaced with Ford Granadas/Fairmonts using the Fox-body platform. I have a soft spot in my heart for these things because they were cheap drivers for years and still are!! Find this 1973 Ford Maverick offered for $4200 in Phoenix, AZ via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.
Driving a classic Opel GT will have the vast majority of people scratching their heads, and a few Opel (and Buick!) enthusiasts rapt with glee. The little GT doesn’t just put a smile on the faces of the lunatic fringe, but it also proves to people out there that a classic German car doesn’t need […]
The cost of entry into the “cool” car club is getting ridiculous these days, and I’m not just talking about Ferraris, Porsches, Supras, but even simple 1st gen Mustangs in great shape are pricy, BUT, you can still find interesting cars in good shape that just aren’t that “desirable” for whatever reason. You’ve just got […]
There is something about craigslist that brings out the inner oddball in people — particularly when dealing with items they will barter for a car. Bitcoins, other cars, houses, children, wives — nothing seems to be off the table, and today we found an entire new category for potential trade — paving. Find this 1981 Volkswagen Vokaro Kit Car offered for $6500 or trade for driveway offered in North Sarasota…errr…not sure what state that is located in but it looks pretty and lots of small lakes…Michigan? via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.
The world of GT-40 replicars runs the gambit from atrocity to travesty, but in this next car we might have found a bit of a gem. The FT Bonito was sold as a kit by Fiberfab and sold mostly in Germany and the Netherlands according to various furrin language websites. The FT used a VW […]
The Fiat 850 Spider was a small 2-sear roadster with a body designed and built by Bertone and mechanical bits from the Fiat 850 sedan. The 850 is pretty slow, even by X1/9 standards, so having a number 11 followed by “HP” is funny. Very funny. Find this 1971 Fiat 850 Spider offered for $2,950 in […]

Find this 1963 Chevrolet Corvette here on eBay offered for […]
