This next pickup truck doesn’t look like much from near or far. In fact, it looks just like any other 90s era pickup, but to quote tipper Rock On; This thing can blow your doors off and then carry them away in the back of the bed! That’s not a Spacecab, that’s a sleeper cab!! Find this 1989 Isuzu Pickup LS1 offered for $16,500 in San Jose, CA via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!
DT’s resident Godfather Kaibeezy was onto something (not on something, pay attention!) when he commented on that low mile Taurus from the other day; Drive 50,000 miles, wash occasionally, sell it along… basically a free car. This, this is what you can and should do to separate yourself from the “new car” buying masses, the drones, the sheeple that are always clogging up the fast lane with newfangled cars. There is nothing inherently wrong with buying a new car (I’ve done it myself a few times) but there is something gloriously liberating about driving a car for a few years and recouping your entire purchase price. Yeah…I’ve done that myself a few times too. The trick is; low miles, clean condition, and make money when you buy it.

1995 was a great years for cars. Auto manufacturers had finally figured out how to dig their way out of the funk from the 70s/80s and things were looking good for performance, speed, and reliability. So, I love it when folks find a well preserved car from the mid 90s, because these modern classics are now 25 years old, but reliable, safe, and new enough to drive every day. But…BUT, out of all the cars on the planet built in 1995 to preserve and keep minty clean, why does it have to be a Taurus. But here it is, 38,000 miles and a car that the late, great Hunsbloger would approve 1000%…so here it goes; find this 1995 Ford Taurus offered for $3,500 in Lansdale, PA via craigslist. Tip from Jeff.
If you are going to go through the trouble of dealing with the nonsense that goes with selling a car on craigslist…you’ve got to provide more than just two photos, especially if that car is an interesting looking fake Ferrari Dino built on a Mazda Miata chassis. We have so many questions, why don’t you sit down and stay a while. Find this 1995 Mazda MX-5 Ferrari Dino offered for $11,500 in Kennesaw, GA via craigslist. Tip from Graham.
When tipper Cory sent us an email with the subject line; rare G-body- 86 grand prix with funky rear window glass, I instantly knew it was one of those sweet Poncho 2+2 Aerocoupes and there was no way I wasn’t gonna feature it. But the best part is that the car is offered for a reasonable sum of money and looks great in black (this is a repaint from the original silver-black two-tone from the factory). Get one of the 1118 Grand Prix 2+2’s built to homologate an aero nose, bubble glass, and fiberglass trunk lid for NASCAR competition. Find this 1986 Pontiac Grand Prix 2+2 offered for $7,300 in Hellertown, PA via craigslist. Tip from Cory.
We’ve covered a number of Batmobiles over the years to the horror of the public, but we seldom feature cover cars for Batman’s arch-rivals, such as the Joker…and there was the time that the Joker hacked DT. But, I don’t believe we’ve ever featured a ride for Batman’s other evil enemy — the Penguin. Let’s fix that today. Find this 1995 Mercedes-Benz E320 offered for $3900 in Philadelphia, PA via craigslist. Tip from Cory.
If you are going to buy a Humvee, you should just skip past all of the modern mass market versions with names like H2, H3…which were just styling exercises from the goons at General Motors. The correct way to drive a High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle is to get a used military surplus version, like this next M998 Hummercamino. The typical HMMWV setup is a 4-door cabin, but the troop/cargo carrier version seen here has two doors and a large pickup bed that can be stuffed with gear or people. Find this 1993 AM General M998 offered for $11,000 in Baton Rouge, LA via craigslist. Tip from Ramjet.
I don’t like posting cars that are “expensive” and this next car is no cheap and depreciated luxury barge…but…BUT…it features the second most beautiful shape from Jaguar (first is the E-Type…hands down) and it is equipped with the rarely-seen-on-this-side-of-the-ocean manual gearbox. This is a combo that is hard to beat. Find this 1993 Jaguar XJS offered for $25,000 near Houston, TX via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.
Do you know what is better than putting one Cadillac V8 into your mid 80s Yugo crap box? Yes…yes, you do. It is putting two Cadillac V8s into the pile of junk. Three would be too many, but two is just perfect for the 21st century interpretation of the Hannibal Twin-8. Now…it just needs a full scissors lift suspension so we can RISE ABOVE IT. PRESS THE BUTTON MAX!!! Find this 1986 Yugo GV with twin Cadillac V8s offered for $25,500 in Los Angeles, CA via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!
This next car comes with some choice commentary from Carter who writes; May be a first: the car listing with it’s one photo taken through a window screen. Does it get any lazier outside the no photo listing? Wow, that is a first. I’m picturing the seller is laid up like Jimmy Stewart from Hitchcock’s Rear Window, but a $300 Volvo is no Grace Kelly. Find this 1990 Volvo 240 offered for $300 in Westbrook, ME via craigslist.
