I watched con-man magician David Blaine do some stunt the other day involving a bunch of hot air balloons and an impressive O2 free rise to 20,000 ft that involved putting on a parachute in the air…anyway, I think that David is a remarkable showman/daredevil, but he’s got nothing on the disappearing rear glass of a vintage Poncho Safari wagon. Where’d it go? Did it go down into the tail gate that is now lowering into the bumper, or did it go up into the headliner…I am so confused. But what I’m NOT confused about is the incredible beast that is this next car. Find this 1973 Pontiac Catalina Safari offered for $11,500 in Antioch, CA via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!

As the resident “Andy Rooney” of DT, I thought it would be appropriate to take this opportunity to show the softer side of us gear-heads by inviting our readers to comment about the coolest/oddest cars their mom’s drove or provide us with some Mom-based anecdotes of the things that we’ve all done to drive our […]
The 2nd generation Pontiac Catalina was the entry level Pontiac and slotted below the Ventura, Star Chief and Bonneville. It was the cheapest way to get into a full sized GM if you didn’t want a Chevrolet badge on your car and this one is built as a tribute car to a Packer Pontiac race […]
Joker here again, another thing this web site needs is a good injection of animal skin decorated cars. There aren’t nearly enough okapi camouflaged Oldsmobiles or puma spotted Prii – but that is going to change with a few quick hacks on the Joker’s keyboard. This feature is the perfect car for a woodland heist, […]
