The Nissan Rasheen was a compact 4WD crossover built by Nissan long before the compact crossover became the most common vehicle in your local new car dealer’s lot. Everything is some kind of crossover that has the ability to off-road at your local golf course…but that wasn’t the case when the Nissan Rasheen hit the […]
If you tell people that you’ve got a V10, manual gearbox, and 4-wheel-drive they are going to assume you are driving around in a Lamborghini, until you tell them you can sleep 4 people in the back. Then they get really confused and typically stop talking to you. But they don’t understand and they never […]
We continue our countdown of 12 econoboxes from this vintage Car and Driver comparison article.

What’s not to love in this next car? It is a rare 2-door SUV from the 80s with a turbo diesel engine, rust, crust, and a toilet paper holder mounted on the side. Or is that a towel rack? Or a wet-suit drying rack for a surfer, perhaps? I’m gonna stick with the TP holder as my final answer, Regis. Find this 1986 Isuzu Trooper DXL 4WD Turbo Diesel 2-Door offered for $6,500 in San Diego, CA via craigslist.
In the world of strange car names, this next feature is a doozy. It is a Honda (that looks like a Toyota to my eyes) that is inexplicably called the “Today Humming.” I don’t know what to say. Today Humming, tomorrow Life Dunk…that would be my ideal car stable. Throw in a King Midget for good measure and I’ll be driving my Mazda Proceed Marvie home now. Anyway, today’s Honda Today Humming is equipped with all-wheel-drive and a 660cc 3-cylinder engine and all the JDM right-hand-drive Kei-hatch style you need. Find this 1995 Honda Today Humming offered for $7,400 in Dallas, TX via craigslist. Tip from Brad.
Living in southern California has its pluses and minuses as car lover. One of the positives is that cars do not rust away. The big negative is the smog rules making imported vehicles nearly impossible to legally drive. So this Japanese import with a clean California title is a unicorn. Find this 1986 Mazda Bongo Brawny offered for $14,500 in Santa Barbara, CA via Craigslist.
The Subaru Forester was launched in 2007 as Subaru’s first entry into the (then small, now large) segment known as the crossover SUV, but the Forester was a long way away from being an AMC Eagle. A few years later Subaru put a slightly detuned version of their 2.5 liter turbo motor from the legendary […]
Ask the average Joe what he knows about Subaru and he will probably talk about the new Forester or a variety of SUV-ish looking wagon-things that are designed to be lightly off-roaded and driven around the city. Press a little more and Joe might talk about the sporty WRX or STI versions of the Impreza…but […]
I love it when someone calls some car “the nicest around” because it often is such a stretch from the truth. And I won’t give the hyperbolists in the room a free pass with this next car, I’ll at the most admit that it looks like a blast to own/drive. Find this 1990 Toyota Celica All-Trac […]
