Prices for Honda’s insane 9000 rpm 4-cylinder powered sports car have been very high in the past few years, so I’ve got to assume that a sub $10k S2000 is going to have quite a few problems. How about a bazillionty miles, a nasty plasti dip paint job, a salvage title, and a jerky key […]
I’ve got to wonder about people. I’m all about donating to charity — I do lots of it with old clothing and with cash money…but cars? Who donates a perfectly good running/driving Ford Ranchero to a charity? I get donating an old Mercury Sable or some old malaise mobile, but this thing is wicked — who could donate it to a salvage yard? I can only assume it is a grieving widow or an angry divorcee. Find this 1973 Ford Ranchero Squire bidding for $4000 in Orange, CA via ebay with a few hours to go.
When I tell people that I publish a website called Daily Turismo, they cock their head sideways — like a puzzled golden retriever — and ask follow up questions. To describe DT, I use words like “curated collection” and “used car listing aggregator” to describe these hallowed pages. But the truth is, I should just send them this next car, because it describes DT in a way that is unequivocally precise; a mostly modern and supremely comfortable BMW 7-series with a salvage title and 144k miles on a 4.5 liter DOHC V8 that is offered for less than four large. Yes, it will have strange random issues that you’ll need to search on forums and videos for solutions…but you’ll end up smarter and better by the time you can afford a better car. Find this 2002 BMW 745i offered for $3,950 in Menifee, CA via craigslist.
It’s late Sunday night, this COVID19 thing has been going on for far too long, and I’m feeling the need for speed. Speed and danger. Maybe some unnecessary risk needs to be mixed in with the speed and danger…no, keep the mask on Zorro, I’m thinking about a salvage titled AMG Mercedes with a screaming 6.2 liter V8 that pushes 451 horsepower through 8000 rpms into a 7 speed auto box. Zero to 60 takes about 3.9 seconds and top speed is electronically limited to 155 mph…and it costs less than a new Nissan Versa. Find this 2009 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG W204 offered for $13,999 buy-it-now or make-offer in Palmdale, CA via eBay.
The Subaru BRZ /Toyota 86 /Scion FR-S was the fruit of an arrangement between Subaru and Toyota to produce a world class 2+2 sports car for the masses. It offered an interesting combination of Subaru flat-4 power and Toyota mechanical bits…but was assembled at Subaru’s Gunma plant in Japan. Sales in the US market for […]
I’ve seen a few sketchy cars for sale in my time, but I’ve never encountered the term “non repairable paperwork (no title!)” before…but lemme tell ya…it’s got me intrigued, mildly terrified, but just curious enough to check out the pictures. Its like if Stormy Daniels turned out to be Daniel Stormy if you catch my […]
You’d have to be living under a rock to not know about the recent hurricanes that have devastated parts of Texas and Florida, and the flooding has been particularly hard on homes, businesses and cars. You might be able to replace the drywall in your home before the studs become covered in black mold, but […]
The BMW M3 was a good car in the 1990s, but the US version had a detuned inline-6 with almost 100 less horsepower as compared to its European counterpart. Thankfully that was fixed around Y2K with the release of the E46 generation BMW M3 with the full monster inline-6. Not only did the world not […]
Words and tip from Jeff G. Remember that scene in the flick Minority Report, when one of the pre-cogs looks at the Tom Cruise character and screams, “RUUUUUUUUUUUNNN!!!!!”…!!?? That is exactly what one should do if ever considering buying this car. There are so many red flags here it makes the National Day ceremony in China […]
The E36 generation BMW M3 was released in 1995 with a detuned US spec engine (remember when the Europeans got the good stuff..?) and a fabulously nimble chassis. Magazine pundits and BMW fanboys alike raved about the steering feel and I can’t imagine the prices on these things can continue to be as low as […]
