A diesel powered GMC Caballero is a stupefyingly eccentric vehicle…but captivating in a way that is difficult to describe. However, the photos in this next advertisement — and I hate to be the guy that criticizes the artistic integrity of a random stranger’s cell-phone photos for a car advert, but I am today — are just as equally baffling. Ignore the fact that the photos were taken at a Jiffy Lube, we don’t need to talk about that, but there is not a single photo of the entire subject vehicle and the best shot is in portrait mode of 2/3s of the Caballero. I guess I know what a Caballero (GMC’s version of the El Camino) looks like, but the lengths the photographer goes to avoid a single aesthetically pleasing shot of this oddball is downright staggering. Find this 1983 GMC Caballero Diesel offered for $12,000 in Wichita, KS via craigslist. Tip from Jeff.
If you don’t understand why you should own a GMC Typhoon…you are certainly not in the minority. But lemme splain…The GMC Typhoon was the SUV version of the GMC Syclone — both were turbocharged-V6 factory hot rod versions of a common compact truck platform with acceleration capabilities that would surprise anything on the street when new. Times have changed and the Typhoon won’t be much faster than the average all-wheel-drive V6 powered crossover you could buy, it they are oh-so-much cooler than anything you could buy new today. Find this 1992 GMC Typhoon offered for $16,900 CAD ($12,882 USD) via eBay, located in Belledune, New Brunswick, Canada.
I hate to contribute to the general panic around the coronavirus…but like the 50th person jumping into a dogpile, I feel only a small pang of regret in my gut. Or is that the coronavirus? Lack of smell and pangs in your gut? I gotta google this. Hang on….nope, I’m good. Anyway, if you are […]
The GMC Typhoon was the SUV version of the GMC Syclone — both were turbo-V6 versions of a common compact truck/SUV platform with acceleration capabilities that would surprise anything on the street when new. Today, with the proliferation of high compression direct injection engines, the Typhoon won’t be the fastest thing on your block but […]
I was planning on posting mostly old German cars this month because of the whole “Oktoberfest” thing, but then someone mentioned that it was the first day of Fall/Autumn…which reminded me there was a whole section of the country where the season of scorched thighs just ended and now it is possible to drive your […]
What’s a ‘good ole’ pre-smog 3/4 ton pickup worth these days? The seller seems pretty straightforward (‘cept he cain’t spell breaks) and includes good shots of all the little rust areas. On the plus side, old ‘Murican trucks are SUPER easy to restore, you can buy anything you need for carpet, vinyl, headliner at your […]
Hi, Boeing 747, this is GMC Sierra…yeah, remember that drunken night we spent together in Acapulco 9 months ago? Yeah. Well, I’ve got some news, first you’ll need to get some testing for something else, and next I’m gonna need 18 years of child support checks. Yes, I’m sure it was yours..take a look at […]
This next car comes as a tip from Scott T who writes: If you’re tired of pulling a trailer to the track, or you just have a fleet of unreliable cars this might be the truck for you. The seller says mint, and it looks like it is, no rust on the doors, good pics […]
DT E-i-C Vince: Sorry about the lack of posts today, I had unexpected internet connectivity issues at the DT headquarters (I should probably consider paying my bills…) all day and have only now figured out a stop-gap connection. ANYWAY, as an apology I present this 1965 GMC Pickup offered for $2500 in San Jose, CA […]
I’m not a big proponent of the wholesale price increases we’ve seen in the classic car world over the past few years (decade…?) …but the market is free and that supply/demand tradeoff is going to drive prices up or down…but I think they’ll only go up on a low-mile low-production oddball like a GMC Typhoon.
