What makes a car a “hot rod”? Do you need side exit exhaust, flames painted on the hood, or a skull shift knob? Or do you just need to ditch the original putt-putt engine that was designed when dinosaurs ruled the earth and replace it with a Ford Crossflow “Kent” Formula Racing Engine and stick some discs up front? Yup, leave the Chebby 350 V8 at home and enjoy this next hod rod MG. Find this 1952 MG TD offered for $11,000 in Eagle River, AK via craigslist. Tip from Zach Z.
If Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell were born into a trailer park instead of wealthy globetrotting families (actually Epstein was born poor and built his wealth thru guile and treachery), this next vehicle might have been the limit of their damage to the world. Imagine if the neighboring trailer is occupied by their friend “Prince” Andy who comes over to listen to some Steely Dan records and children/ladies/anyone would know to give this thing a wide berth. The world would have been a safer place for everyone because the Wrassle Castle is the 1970s version of the Free Candy van. Find this 1974 Ford Econoline Camper offered for $9900 in Chesapeake, VA. Tip from SeanT.
When I first saw this next feature, I thought “wow, that is a bunch of money for an 80s Ford Wagon“…but then I started to get into the finer details of this particular wagon. Most 88 LTD wagons have long since been ridden into the ground by the grand kids of the original owners…which is […]
Car lovers sink all sorts of money into Friday car club cars…these are the cars that won’t make headlines at your next Barrett-Jackson auction, but they do offer a significant bang-for-your-buck if you are willing to live with custom flames on your fenders, air bags, and chrome side pipes. Not that any of those things […]
My dad told me to write about an American car for the 4th of July, so I looked on craigslist and this one was a definite winner for a number of reasons. One is that it is a Mustang which, to me, is the most patriotic car you could get. It is basically a muscle […]
The 2nd generation Crown Victoria was introduced in 1998 and was available to the public (mostly old dudes) through the 2007 model year. From 2008 to 2011 the Crown Vic was only sold for fleet/rental use and was the police car of choice for many precincts. This made spotting smokey and dropping to the legal […]
Tipper Eric sent this car in with the following words: Who orders an Econoline with a stick and a 6? I have to meet this person! Yup, this is a strange vehicle..and one that I am familiar with..I learned to drive on similar manual transmission equipped van…but if I recall correctly my old man didn’t buy […]
It’s hard to believe that the Fox Body Mustang is 41 years old….well not today’s example, but it is 31 and not exactly a spring chicken. Let me put that in perspective…imagine you are living in 1989 (that’s not that much of a stretch) and you tried to daily drive a Ford from 1958…or even […]
This next car comes from tipper Zach who writes: It was <not> the best of times. I don’t know what you’d do with this thing. A modern ecoboost monster of some sort? Cram a 302 in and just saunter? Grab the drivetrain from a Prius and don’t amaze your friends? At least you can feel […]
The 6th generation of the Ford Mustang was released for the 2015 model year with a new aggressive body style (it looks so much wider than the previous gen, but it was only 1.5 inches wider and 1.4 inches lower) and an independent rear end for the first time for the original pony car. Ford […]
