This next car comes as a tip from Cory who calls it a “LS Swapped 77 Pontiac Lemans with +9 wheel upgrade”. Not sure if I like the wheels, but I can say that an LS swap is always welcome in a malaise era LeMans. Find this 1977 Pontiac LeMans offered for $9999 in Stickney, […]
The fifth and final generation of Chevrolet’s El Camino was built from 1982 through 1987. And I can’t imagine one single reason why Chevy hasn’t resurrected the El Camino name/shape/style in the 21st century of retro-crap we see littering showrooms. But I don’t see any reason you shouldn’t own a few 80s El Caminos with […]
With all of the false advertising we see out in the wild world, it is great to see a car offered with heap of that nasty stuff called the truth. Do we see a well staged photo with a nice background? Nope. This car is on a lift that is plastered with an assortment of […]
The average S13/S13 Nissan Silvia/240SX with a V8 swap is pretty ugly. You’ll see some chopped up harnesses, gutted interior, and lots of fender dents from when the owner drifted it into a piece of guard rail. But today, we’ve got a treat — an S14 with a V8 that looks cosmetically clean. It put […]
Another day, another V8 powered Volvo wagon offered for sale, but this one has a manual gearbox and some sweet gold wheels and a bunch of other upgrades. The asking price is a smidge more than I’d like to pay for something as silly as a V8 Volvo, but this one is gonna be as […]
This next car needs a few things. It needs to be fixed up from a small accident that bent an A-arm and damaged the rims. It also needs the headlights wired up. It also needs some bumpers and de-stickerfication. It also needs a 6-speed manual swap. And then its to be driven and enjoyed because it would be sublime.

The seller of this next car describes it as “not a hackjob backyard swap”…which makes me wonder, where would you do an LSX swap into a 90s GMC Jimmy? In the realm of places to do swaps, from a Jay Leno style climate controlled garage to a dirt patch behind the Waffle House in Woooostaaaa, I’m gonna lean towards doing my Jimmy swaps at the latter, but I love waffles more than Jay Leno. And I mean that exactly how you might interpret it. Find this 1998 GMC Jimmy offered for $5000 in Northbridge, MA via craigslist. Tip from Cory.
This next pickup truck doesn’t look like much from near or far. In fact, it looks just like any other 90s era pickup, but to quote tipper Rock On; This thing can blow your doors off and then carry them away in the back of the bed! That’s not a Spacecab, that’s a sleeper cab!! Find this 1989 Isuzu Pickup LS1 offered for $16,500 in San Jose, CA via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!
The 900-series platform was the final iteration of Volvos front-engine rear-drive sedan/wagon platform that started with the 140-series in 1967 (which itself was derived from the Amazon/120 platform which launched in 1956 based on the previous PV444…you see where this is going). Regardless, the V90 was the final name put on the back of a rear-wheel-drive Volvo with properly positioned drivetrain and the only logical choice if you want to shove a V8 under the hood and chew anybody’s ass from 20 to 100. This might not be the legendary third Newman-Letterman V8lvo, but it is offered for a price that isn’t insane and should be great to haul around your family. Find this 1998 Volvo V90 with LS-swap offered for $13,900 in Laguna Niguel, CA via craigslist. Tip from Cory.
This next car comes as a seller submission from TC who describes his Porsche 951 as a “very nice car”. Wait, what is a 951? The 951 is the Porsche internal designation for the turbocharged version of the 944. Porsche took the front-engine transaxle equipped successor to the 924 and boosted it to 220 horsepower…but that doesn’t matter for todays 951, because it has a Chevrolet LS1 V8 borrowed from a Pontiac GTO squeezed into the engine bay.
