The Carboniferous epoch, which occurred within the Paleozoic era spanning from approximately 360 to 300 million years ago, is renowned for hosting one of the most significant mass extinctions in Earth’s history, the Permian-Triassic event. It’s also the era during which the majority of present-day coal reserves were created. The automotive epoch that most closely […]
I know it might be cliche to post yet ANOTHER customized El Camino on DT…but here we are. This time someone took a Chrysler 300 SRT8 and turned it into an SRUT8 or 3l Caminoo? El Caminyess? Anway, the Dodge/Chrysler Charger/300 platform seems to be El Caminoized on a regular basis, probably because it is […]
This next car comes as a tip from Jim H who calls it an “honest ad” with “Hallmark card pricing.” Hallmark greeting cards might be expensive for greeting cards, but they are assuredly cheaper than the average Mercedes-Benz wagon, let’s take a closer look. Find this 1993 Mercedes-Benz 300TE Wagon offered for $1499 in Pittsfield, MA via craigslist.
I was preparing an onslaught of Canadian Thanksgiving posts to continue celebrating the Columbus Day/Canadian Thanksgiving extravaganza…but this next car is just too cool to skip. It is a reminder of a time when style was more than just some giant wheels and big grill — and slab sided styling was king. Find this 1966 Chrysler 300 offered for $8,500 in Cape Coral, FL via craigslist. Tip from Dascpcu.
The Chrysler LX platform was launched in 2005 as rear-drive replacement for some terrible front-drive Chrysler platform which we won’t even dare to mention…but the LX offered some rear-wheel-drive goodness for the Dodge Charger, Dodge Challenger, and Chrysler 300. This platform was launched in the middle of the much maligned Daimler-Chrysler merger era, and the […]
Who says you can’t get a decent looking/running/driving 2-door V8 muscle car for $5,000 anymore? Okay, I admit, that was me, but the truth is you don’t get much for your money these days and 2-door Mopar muscle is no exception. Find this 1966 Chrysler 300 2dr Hardtop offered for $5,500 in McKinleyville, CA […]
With gas hitting 46¢ a gallon in some parts of the country it makes sense to ditch your Chevy Volt and pick up a Chrysler 300 with a gas guzzling V8 mounted up front because oil is now cheaper than the barrel you put it in and prices are never going back up again. Ever. […]
The Mercedes-Benz W108/W109 chassis is one of the DT regulars- you may recall a number of detailed and engaging posts from Hunsbloger about the specifics of the W108 4.5 SE market, (hey, that post is 2 years old, might be time for an update) but he didn’t touch the W109 SEL 6.3 due to the […]
We’ve been big fans of Mercedes-Benz E-Class wagons for years, especially since their values dropped to Volkswagen Bus prices…wait..those are worth a mint now…strange world. Anyway, today’s E-Class is no standard run-of-the-mill 300TE; this one was once owned by actor/comedian/Canadian John Candy. Find this 1991 Mercedes-Benz 300TE for sale in Katy, TX for $800 via […]
The seventies malaise era was period of the automotive blight between the rumbling sixties and econobox eighties, best known for giant, low-compression engines, jelly filled shock absorbers and over stuffed seats. Certainly any fan of malaise era classics should be familiar with the Chrysler Cordoba, if not only for the legendary “pre-Khan” Ricardo Montalbán commercials. […]
