We love all kinds of cars on Daily Turismo. Old cars. New cars. El Caminos. El Caminoized things. But the purpose that binds them all together like Sauron’s ring is the price-to-value ratio. And this next car comes with a pretty high price tag for a Geo Metro…absolutely…but it is the nicest three-cylinder powered piece of junk you’ll ever see, and perhaps it does answer the age old question; Can you polish a Geo? Find this 1991 Geo Metro Convertible offered for $6,500 in Phoenix, AZ via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.
1995 was a great years for cars. Auto manufacturers had finally figured out how to dig their way out of the funk from the 70s/80s and things were looking good for performance, speed, and reliability. So, I love it when folks find a well preserved car from the mid 90s, because these modern classics are now 25 years old, but reliable, safe, and new enough to drive every day. But…BUT, out of all the cars on the planet built in 1995 to preserve and keep minty clean, why does it have to be a Taurus. But here it is, 38,000 miles and a car that the late, great Hunsbloger would approve 1000%…so here it goes; find this 1995 Ford Taurus offered for $3,500 in Lansdale, PA via craigslist. Tip from Jeff.
This is all the money (and then some) for a ’93 Lincoln Town Car…but if you are in the market for something strange from the 90s with super low miles…you don’t have many choices. But the only problem with this car is that you can’t drive it. The second the odo turns into quintuple digits, […]
The W114/115 chassis is the rugged 60s/70s era Mercedes-Benz E-class predecessor that is frequently a great deal for a cool classic. The W114 is often overshadowed by the fancier front end and stacked headlamps of the W108/109 chassis, but some prefer the clean and simple lines of the smaller sibling in the Benz family. For […]
Another minty clean Honda/Acura with an automatic? Sure, why not — it isn’t like you find mint condition cars from 1992 with only 45k miles on the odometer everyday…so I think the slushbox can be forgiven. Find this 1992 Acura Legend offered for $13,000 in Fremont, CA via craigslist. Tip from KBZ. In 1986 Honda […]
The first generation Honda Prelude (SN) is a pretty boring car to drive compared to the stuff available today, but back when new it was lauded by the likes of Brock Yates who once wrote in Motor Trend “by any sane measurement, a splendid automobile. The machine, like all Hondas, embodies fabrication that is, in […]
Maybe you were too young to afford a Miata when they were first released. Perhaps you had the first-gen model long ago and want to relive the experience. It could be that you are a collector who thinks the original might go up in value and you want a great specimen. Here is your chance […]
The Fox-body Mustang was such an improvement over the bizarrely good selling Mustang II that it can only be a matter of time before the Fox becomes collectable, but I just don’t think we have reached that time yet…or have we? They say that cars don’t become collectible until we forget how truly horrible they […]
Hey, Celica I just found on craigslist: the 1980s called, and they want their white basketweave wheels back. I kid, I kid; an excruciatingly period-specific car such as this needs period-correct wheels. The 3rd-generation A60 Celica is boxy to the extreme, and it’s rare to find one that looks like it’s only a few years […]
OK guys, I’m done fooling around. Time for a real throwback Thorsday post. Vince’s smallblocked ’75 242 from Tuesday was a good find, if you’re into diving boards, poor taste, and carburetors. Today however I present the pinnacle of Volvo’s two door 240 lineup – no, not a finnicky Turbo model – but an ’83 DL […]
