MId Week Match-Up: Best Junker For $1k

This week’s Mid Week Match-Up is just for fun — head to your local craigslist, eBay, cars.com or whatever and find me the best sub $1000 running/driving car with a manual gearbox that you could drive daily for the next year.  Justify your decision.

My choice is this 1976 Triumph TR7 offered for $900 buy-it-now or make-offer here on eBay located in Baltimore, MD.  According to the seller it has minimal rust and starts/runs/stops — what more can you ask for? 

What would you drive? Comments below.
