The Chrysler Sebring was the ultimate downer at the car rental parking lots through the 2010 model year when it was replaced by the equally bad but more stylish Chrysler 200. Still a miserably penalty box, but not quite as visibly repugnant. Anyway, between 1995 and 2010, when you were on the way to the rental counter you had high hopes of getting a V6 Mustang or a Crown Vic or some new car you’d never driven before. And you wished you wouldn’t get a Nissan, but you were frozen with fear if you saw a Chrysler key fob being passed over the counter. Uggg, those were horrible cars. Anyway, today’s Sebring has been covered in an early Corvair body shape that looks like it was rejected from the Gas Monkey Garage for being too shabby…but I sorta like it. Expect people to give you lots of space in the parking lot and this COVID thing lets you wear a mask so people won’t recognize you.

The guys over at Hagerty have it correct when they say that the Chevy Monza was born at just the wrong time. The Monza was released in 1975 as a rear-drive renaissance for compact American compact sports coupes, and while it sold in decent numbers (over 800k from 1975-1980) it was released at the height […]
The Chevrolet Corvair was built in two generations — the first from 1960-1964 and the later cars built from 1965-1969. The early cars have curves that are softer and more “50s”, while the later cars have a more angular “60s” look, no B-pillar, and an upgrade from the early swing axle rear end to a fully independent setup. The late, great Hunsbloger would always insist that the 65+ models were the only ones to consider, but this next early Monza is so nicely preserved for the asking price that I think he’d give it a second look.

The Chevrolet Monza (not to be confused with the Opel Monza or the Chevy Corvair Monza) was released in the 1975 model year as GM’s plus sized subcompact (how’s that for a contradiction in terms) offering on the H-platform shared with the Vega/Astra/Sunbird/Skyhawk/Starfire. It was GM’s answer to new sporty-ish compact offerings from Ford like […]
This next car looks to be a good example of the Corvair and is the top of the line Monza trim version…but like the Porsche 912, it is severely lacking in the powertrain part of the equation…because it is a base 110 horsepower flat-6 mated to a two-speed powerglide slushbox. Find this 1968 Chevrolet Corvair Monza […]
The Chevrolet Monza (not to be confused with the Opel Monza or the Chevy Corvair Monza) was released in the 1975 model year as GM’s biggest subcompact offering on the H-platform shared with the Vega/Astra/Sunbird/Skyhawk/Starfire.

What would a day be like without a crazy V8 Corversion on Daily Turismo — NOT A NORMAL DAY THAT IS FOR SURE. WHY ARE YOU SHOUTING? I DON’T KNOW, IT JUST SEEMS LIKE THIS SHOULD BE IN ALL CAPS…BUT FOR SOME REASON THE CRAIGSLIST AD ISN’T IN ALL CAPS, SO I FELT I SHOULD RUN […]
The following car comes from tipper Rock On, who writes: Yeah, I know your Mom’s V-6 Camry with 301 horsepower will eat this thing for breakfast. But, there is one thing this car can do better than any fwd or awd car. Long, smokey, John Force approved burn outs. This is essentially a factory built […]

It was GM’s answer to new sporty compact offerings from Ford like the Mustang II and featured the dreaded […]
I can only imagine what my wife would do with my project C36 AMG if I went to the big junkyard in the sky. Inheriting cars is a tricky thing for the new owner as they may not share the same enthusiasm or have the knowledge to keep a car going. Today’s seller has done an […]
