The MGB GT is a fastback version of the convertible MGB that was built from 1973 through 1976. The B GT continues to be a fantastic bargain for a car with a Pininfarina roof and proper classic car credentials. I’d have expected these to increase in price with similar things from the era like Porsche […]
If you ask the average person in New Mexico what a “California Special” package might add to a Mustang, they would probably suggest that the package adds a homeless man in the rear seat and charges you an extra 50 cents a gallon at the pump for the no reason, but that isn’t quite true. […]
In the 1980s if you wanted to add performance to a car, the recipe was simple. Ignore those pesky and complicated engine and transmission parts and focus on aesthetics. What you need is a color matched body kit. I guess you could also add a High Output designation to the monster 1.9 liter fuel injected […]
The Toyota Celica was one of the better styled mass-market cars to come from Japan during the 1990s and that’s a fact that I’ll defend, but what I can’t defend is the choice of wheels on this car. They need to go, but you could find some stock wheels or any number of era appropriate […]
The Hyundai Elantra isn’t a cool car by any measurement. It is miserably Korean built penalty box that offers little in excitement for anyone but perhaps a teenager who is excited to drive around a car his/her parents donated to him/her. So it is odd that I find myself posting an Elantra on DT -home […]
It consistently amazes me how much money people will drop into cars. I’m probably guilty of the same, but I’ve got the wherewithal to NOT count my receipts at the end of a lifelong project car. But the builder of this next Bradley GT put $40,000 into his VW powered kit car. It actually doesn’t […]
I’m never sure if I should call this next car an MGB GT, or an MG B GT, or an MG BGT, or an MG MGB GT or MGBGT…? But one thing I’m sure is that it is a great way to get into a good looking drivable classic car for a simple price. The […]
The MGB GT is no stranger to this website because we’ve featured many over the years. And the B GT continues to be a fantastic bargain for a car with a Pininfarina roof and proper classic car credentials. I’d have expected these to increase in price with similar things from the era like Porsche 914/912, Datsun 240Z, Ford Mustang Fastback, Triumph TR etc…but you can still get them for reasonable amount of money. Find this 1970 MGB GT offered for $5999 in the Ocean Beach neighborhood of San Diego, CA via craigslist.
It has been 15 years since Toyota sold anything with the Celica name on the back, which probably means it is time for a retro styled reboot. But I don’t want a retro styled electric self-driving Celica anymore than I want fake meat that tastes/looks/chews/grills like meat. If I want a Toyota with 4 square headlights, then I’ll get a this one. Find this 1981 Toyota Celica GT Liftback offered for $6,500 in Albuquerque, NM via craigslist.
The Jensen GT is a shooting brake version of the Jensen-Healey that was produced from Sept of 1975 through May 1976 in limited numbers before Jensen Motors went belly up. According to various internet sources, a total of 511 GTs were produced during the year of production. You don’t see these very often and this one is offered for a decent deal for such a rare bird. Find this 1976 Jensen GT offered for $9,500 in Oakley, CA via craigslist.
