The Ford Falcon was introduced for the 1960 model year in various versions and it was an instant hit. Sales were strong until Ford released the Mustang, which was a Falcon in a prettier body, but before the Mustang was released, if you wanted a fun/compact Ford, you got a Falcon. This next one is a really cool 2-door wagon and is offered with some decent resto-mod upgrades including a 5-speed and 17-inch Torque Thrust D wheels. Find this 1960 Ford Falcon 2-Door Wagon offered for $14,000 in Santa Clara, CA via craigslist.
If a 1965 isn’t the best year for automobiles of all time, then I don’t know what year is better. Take this next car, it is a Buick Skylark that still has a reasonable curb weight and clean styling (later A-Body Buicks were heavier and chunkier) but is modern enough that you don’t have to deal with wacky engineering like a late ’50s car or complex emissions equipment like ’70s junk. It should have seat belts and with the addition of dual-circuit master cylinder (and discs up front) it should be totally drivable in 2020 or 2050 or 2065. Try that with a car from any other year.

The Pontiac Fiero was the runt of the litter in the sports car world when it was new, and was the brunt of many jokes in the decades after…but…if you are going to buy a Fiero, don’t fall for the V8 swapped monster or the ’84 iron duke powered original and instead get yourself a […]
When the Ford Pinto was first released for the 1971 model year, it was supposed to be a light weight import fighter, but a lack of power and a design flaw in the fuel tank relegated the little mini-pony to the back of the history books. But today’s example isn’t your grandma’s Pinto. Find this […]

There is no better money spent on a car than a serious investment from the previous owner and today we’ve got a whooper. How about $24,000 spent and countless weekends of assembly — and you get the entire package from something you can negotiate that is less than $10k. Find this 1974 Triumph Spitfire offered for […]
We’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: there is no money better spent on any car than the previous owner’s money. It is the equivalent of drafting when racing — why burn your own fuel and generate your own speed when you can let the other guy do the dirty work for you. […]
The third generation (1992-1995) Mazda RX-7 was one of the best looking cars produced in the 1990’s at any price level. They were known to have temperamental twin turbo rotary engines that came fitted with an absurd amount of rubber vacuum hoses. It is not uncommon to find LS swapped FD RX-7’s for this reason. […]
The third generation Pontiac Firebird (1982-1992) might not have the cool looks of the earlier 1st (1967-1969) or 2nd gen (1970-1981) but it was certainly a better assembled and constructed automobile, and it wasn’t as strangely styled as the 4th generation that replaced it. There is also the Knight Rider connection, which can be a […]
