This next car comes as a tip from Johnny Bouncewell who writes: This state is full of strange old cars that don’t rust away but instead get fried by the sun. This one would take a serious Francophile to restore but hey, how many French five door wagons are still out there with the proper gearbox? Find this 1985 Peugeot 505S Wagon offered for $2,000 in Los Lunas, NM via craigslist.
This next car comes as a tip from Johnny Bouncewell who writes: Would be a wonderfully funky car when complete but I value my spare time, spare money, and can’t afford the divorce that this would inevitably bring.

This next car comes as a tip from Zach who writes: Needs a bit of love, but a number of pieces there. At current bid ($7.50) a fair price.

Even prices for the basic 122 Amazon are up, but scoring a 1 of 1500 ever built factory hot-rod 123GT for less than a Big Mac meal deal is a score. Find this 1968 Volvo 123GT bidding for $7.50 reserve-not-met with 4 days to go, located in Pensacola, FL via eBay.

The Fuego was built by Renault from 1980 to 1986, sold in the US through AMC dealers and featured such innovations as the world’s first keyless remote system…which is funny because this next Fuego is being offered sans keys.

This next car comes from tipper Zach who writes: It was <not> the best of times. I don’t know what you’d do with this thing. A modern ecoboost monster of some sort? Cram a 302 in and just saunter? Grab the drivetrain from a Prius and don’t amaze your friends? At least you can feel […]

Just what exactly is a DeLorean project anyway…I thought all DeLorea were projects? The DeLorean DMC-12 was a gull-wing equipped sports machine built on a fiberglass monocoque and covered by cosmetic stainless steel panels. The DMC-12 was designed by noted pasta designer Giorgetto Giugiaro and was powered by a mid mounted PRV6…but don’t let that […]
