Classically Based: 1984 Knudsen Baroque

Nebraska isn’t exactly known as an automotive mecca, but that didn’t stop a guy named Russell Knudsen from starting to manufacture cars in Omaha back in the late 1970s. Maybe manufacture is an overstatement, but Knudsen did rebody full sized 70s/80s domestics with retro styling that looks like a Mercedes Benz from the 1930s if you coat your sunglasses in vaseline. Regardless, if you didn’t win the charity raffle for Jeremy Clarkson’s Mitsuoka Le-Seyde, then perhaps you could get this thing instead. Find this 1984 Knudsen Baroque offered for $14,000 in Tupelo, MS via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!
