I don’t like to be rude and condescending…okay, I take that back. I don’t mind being rude, and sometimes condescension is the correct tone when dealing with certain people…but what I meant to say is, I don’t like being mean, or at least unnecessarily mean. So when I point out that the seller of this next car is offering it as a Porsche 928 when it is clearly a Porsche 944, it is not to be mean, it is simply that I don’t understand how you could make that gross of an error in the advertisement for your vehicle. Maybe the seller was pointing out that very little separates a 944 with V8 from the 928…but the redeeming factor here, however, is the price — most V8 swapped Porsches (944s…928s..924s..911s etc) are offered for eye wateringly high asking prices, this one isn’t bad at all.

The first generation Chevrolet Corvair (1960-1964) was much maligned for it’s swing axle suspension that would pogo-stick you into a spin at the first chance it could get…but the 2nd generation (1965-1969) fixed that with a fully independent rear suspension with coil springs at all four corners that would keep you right-side-up right-side-forward and alive. But this next example has a Corvette LT1 V8 sitting where an arm rest would normally go…and if that won’t kill you in a crash, the roll cage will certainly finish you off. Might as well mount a Viking helmet as an airbag in this thing…but oh man it looks like fun. Find this 1966 Chevrolet Corvair V8 offered for $8000 in Hamilton, OH via craigslist.
Back in 1984, Cadillac was not trying to ape German car makers to make the fastest sedan to run the Nurburgring. They primarily focused on making large cars that got middling better gas mileage than the parade floats of the 1970’s. No one would mistake a Coupe DeVille for an Audi or BMW back in […]
