We featured a chopped Silverado the other day that was generally appreciated by the crowd for being tidy and subtle modification. However, today’s next feature is anything but understated. It does appear to be a decently conceived 4 seat convertible pickup truck conversion, which is not something you hear very often.

This next car comes as a tip from Matt who writes; Another sketchy, cheap C4 Corvette for DT readers who thought the purple LT1 Corvette was too expensive – or that purple just wasn’t sufficiently over the top to be noticed. Here’s yet another C4 that could use some work! Find this 1984 Chevrolet Corvette C4 offered for $3,500 in Smyrna, GA via facebash censorbook.
This next car comes as a tip from Cory who writes: over the top custom g body monte carlo- what is it?? That is a fabulous question, and one that the seller doesn’t really do a good job answering with a few lines of text and a total of 24 photos. The seller reports that a family is asking him to help sell their Dad’s uncompleted custom thing which is described as starting life as an ’87 Monte Carlo and now its been given a full Johnny Cash treatment with all manner of 59 T-Bird parts, Ford wheel caps, and whatever a “Continental Kit” is. I’m confused, but strangely attracted. Find this 1987 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Kustom offered for $15,000 in Hartford, CT via craigslist.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again; the C4 Corvette has to be worth something more than scrap value in the near future. It’s a classic and the good ones will demand crazy money, but even the purple wrecks will be worth something because someone will convert them back to stock and fix ’em. And before you say “it’ll never be worth anything” — just remember that there was a time when you could get 69 Corvettes for next to nothing (probably when this 94 was new) and they are expensive today. So I’m putting this car into the “ready for appreciation even though it is purple” group. Find this 1994 Chevrolet Corvette offered for $6,500 buy-it-now in Sandown, NH via eBay.
Most of the 3rd and 4th generation Novas you see at car club events are big V8 powered machines with flat paint and wide tires out back. Today’s example has upgraded disc brakes and really nice paint, but it has it original 250 cubic inch straight six and an automatic transmission. So it’ll get you to the Friday night car show, but you won’t be able to leave black stripes on the ground (or crash into a parked car) on your way home, which might be a good thing.

This is not a car that the average person will notice. Most people will walk right by and I have no idea of the amount of work that it takes to get a nice looking 4″ chop out of the top of something like a Silverado. And it is almost hard to tell that this has been modified, but the A-pillars, the B-pillars, the windshield, side windows, door frames, and the back window are all custom. And, I’m not a big fan of chopped trucks, and this may be the answer to a question that nobody asked, but it works — it adds just the right amount of special to the otherwise plain Silverado.

In the Venn diagram that shows an overlapping circles of 4X4s, exposed hood scoops, and El Caminos…there is a little spot in the middle known as a hillbilly bonanza. It is that magic combination of big tires and big promises that can only be inspired by moonshine distilled in a swamp. It is magical.

Prices for the 2nd generation Chevrolet Camaro (1970-1981) have been all over the place in the past few years, probably as the wheat gets sorted from the chaff. Is this next one a sheep or a goat…I’m not sure, but I am sure that it has a newer Vortec small block V8 put in place of the original small block (or it could have come with a 250 inline-6) but it is fed with a carburetor instead of fuel injection.

A few years ago I owned and drove a used 3rd generation F-body and I’m not going to say it was a bad car, but let’s just say that it is not an experience I am anxious to repeat. It was slow and unsophisticated, but mine was an 84 Z28 and I didn’t have a rare last year of the generation 25th Anniversary edition. The 25th Anniversary Heritage Edition was supposed to be equipped with Corvette alloy cylinder heads, a 6-speed manual, and tubular exhaust, but the bean counters at GM decided that a graphics package is what buyers wanted for their extra cash. However, today’s example is offered for a decent deal and looks to be ready to go. Find this 1992 Chevrolet Camaro RS offered for $6,800 in Stamford, CT via craigslist. Tip from Cory.
A few months ago we had a fun time watching a lucky DT reader buy Hugh’s old Cummins powered Dodge farm truck for a few bones. This next truck is a Chevy that is equally dilapidated, but has an interesting engine swap. You could get a C/K truck in the 70s with a diesel, but it was the terrible Oldsmobile V8 diesel, not a proper commercial diesel. However, it appears that somebody shoved a CAT 1160 (which is an older version of Caterpillar’s 3208) Diesel V8 under the hood of this next hulk of metal and wood.
