I’m not a big fan of the whole finding cars in barns movement where people pay disproportionately large amounts of money to have the pleasure of pumping more money into restoring an old heap of parts…but sometimes you find a car that might be worth the cost of restoration because the asking price is so far below the going rate of decent version. The subject car might have been stored in the barn, but the reasons for ownership has less to do with the emotional aspects This next car fits into that paradigm, but will depend on the condition of the frame that sits under the fiberglass outer panels. Find this 1966 Chevrolet Corvette 427 4-Speed offered for $16,500 in San Diego, CA via craigslist.
As a non-Porsche owner, it has been painful to watch the rise in prices of vintage aircooled P-cars…but I’ve been watching the prices of the 996/997 and they offer a shocking amount of performance and comfort (sorry 993 owners…but they are faster and more comfy…maybe not as cool…) for the cash. To be honest, I’m […]
We first featured this crazy rattle can panel painted Vette back in 2013 when it was ostensibly hauled from the garage of a guy (we’ll call him Larry) who owned it from 1974-2013 — now it is featured sans faux side header-pipes, but with some egregious ill fitting drag style wheels (front and rear).

Prices of the C2 have been high for years, but you can still pick up a 327 or 350 powered 4-speed as a mid-life crisis or retirement present without digging too deep into your 401k, […]
An aircooled Porsche 911 will turn heads and raise eyebrows where ever you take it, so why not get a nice one that will be fun to drive? The 964 generation bridges the gap between the earlier cantankerous and slow 911 “classic” and the uber-expensive 993 in terms of price, performance and comfort. Find this […]
The 996 generation of 911 was introduced in 1999 with much fanfare, ballyhooing, havering and caterwauling. Whenever a new generation of 911 is introduced the weenies come out of the woodwork and complain about how soft and lame the new generation is…except this time they were correct. But screw all those negative Nancys and their […]
The C2 Corvette is one of the most desireable of Corvettes – it is prized for its clean/elegant styling, powerful V8 engines and generally looks like a million bucks even un-restored. We featured an elusive Value-Vette a few weeks back that sold for bargain price of $33k and were astounded to see a C2 offered […]
