The series three generation of the legendary Jaguar XJ platform was produced from 1979 through 1992…but it was mostly a cosmetic reboot of the previous car. Internet legend says that the new styling was designed by Pininfarina, but they did not make a coupe version as it was only available as a sedan. Lucky for […]
This next car comes as a seller submission from MK who writes: “I’m selling a low buck ‘cool’ car that might resonate with the DT crowd. It’s an 88 XJ6 that I swapped an LT1 into. I used a Jaguar Specialties mounting kit with an LT1/4l60 out of a 95 Impala SS. It’s a fun […]
I’m never sure if I should call this next car an MGB GT, or an MG B GT, or an MG BGT, or an MG MGB GT or MGBGT…? But one thing I’m sure is that it is a great way to get into a good looking drivable classic car for a simple price. The […]
With the 1994 release of the Jaguar XJR (X306) performance sedan, the world was introduced to a supercharged AJ6 version of Jaguar’s bread and butter luxury sedan. It was fast, it was luxurious, it was a Jaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaag. The automotive press (particularly those in the UK) rejoiced…mostly because press folks drive new cars from corporate fleets […]
For a company that sold extraordinary cars for the extraordinarily wealthy, Rolls-Royce had a complicated model lineup in the late 1970s when they were still an independent company. The starter Rolls was the Silver Shadow, which was available in long wheelbase known as the Silver Wraith, but you could also spend more money to get […]
The optimism in this advertisement is amazing. Let’s analyze the seller’s words; “All appear complete” — that’s good, complete cars are better than those missing engines, etc, but we need to get deeper into the details and understand why they appear so dirty in the pics…”but guessing will need work.” Guessing. I don’t like to guess when it comes to the condition of a car, but I do love the asking price for these next three cars. Find this 1967 MGB, 1972 MGBGT, & 1977 MGB offered for $1250 each in San Diego, CA via craigslist.
I love the idea of owning a classic MG with an upgraded power plant and I love the look of this next car…and I’m not afraid of the price…but this next advertisement leaves a bit to be desired. Where are the photos of the engine bay? How clean was the installation? And what is up […]
You know what they say — the only thing more expensive than an expensive Land Rover, is a cheap Land Rover. This is a fact of life that is well known and often ignored, but when you consider the ridiculous high asking prices for late model blob-SUVs, a cheap Ranger Rover is so tempting…you shouldn’t […]
The modern day Lotus Elise is (was…I believe Lotus stopped selling it in the US market a few years ago) a great combination of British handling/looks and Japanese powerplant. It took a while for Lotus to realize that putting French engines into their sports cars was not an upgrade over British iron. Regardless, the builder of this next car decided to put a late model fuel injected twin-cam Toyota engine into the engine bay in an Europa (a Europa…?) and made something very special. Find this 1972 Lotus Europa twin-cam offered for $20,000 in Ft Collins, CO via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!
The Lotus Elite had the distinct honor of being the world’s most expensive 4-cylinder powered vehicle when it was launched in 1974…but this next version is no ordinary Elite. Not that there is ANYTHING ordinary about the front-engine 2+2 shooting brake that looks like a Pinto Wagon that has been restyled by extraterrestrials. This next one has a GM LT1 V8 shoved up front and it might look familiar to you because we featured it Dec of 2020. Find this 1991 Lotus Elite offered for $6,200 in Lexington, SC via myface friendsterbook. Tip from Mark.
