This next feature comes as a seller submission from Bill who told us that it is time to sell his “beloved Frankenstein.” He also describes it as a “1972 Porsche 914 with a small block Chevy wedged behind the seats…embarrassingly wide Carol Shelby Anaconda wheels, polarizing hand-laid fiberglass flares, Singer-esq interior.” The exterior is a bit rough, but the interior is better executed than expected and the wheels (Carrol Shelby Anaconda) have a nice vintage racer Minilite look to them. Find this 1972 Porsche 914 V8 offered for $7,200 buy-it-now or make-offer in Los Angeles, CA via eBay.
This next car comes as a seller submission from TC who describes his Porsche 951 as a “very nice car”. Wait, what is a 951? The 951 is the Porsche internal designation for the turbocharged version of the 944. Porsche took the front-engine transaxle equipped successor to the 924 and boosted it to 220 horsepower…but that doesn’t matter for todays 951, because it has a Chevrolet LS1 V8 borrowed from a Pontiac GTO squeezed into the engine bay. Find this 1987 Porsche 944 offered for $22,000 in Tampa, FL on Pro-Touring.com.
The Saab 900 Classic, built from 1978 through 1994, was the final evolution of Saab’s wacky backwards-engine compact luxury cruiser that started way back in 1968 with the release of the Saab 99. Don’t be fooled by the later GM rebadged Opel/Vauxhall/Saturn abomination that later used the 900 badge — because there was only one […]
This next car comes as a seller submission from DT regular Michael who writes: My son is selling his 1985.5 Porsche 944. This car has a sunroof, extra snow tires, original wheels, and of course the Fun Pedal. This is a wonderful driver’s car in reasonably good condition inside and out. Before we purchased the car […]
The E34 generation BMW M5 has been a favorite around this site, mostly because it offers a level of speed and exclusivity that is hard to beat. And if you don’t remember, DT’s own CFlo owned an E34 M5 for a few years and loved every minute of the screaming inline-6 powered beast. Today’s E34M5 […]
This next car is a seller submission from Mason who writes: Unfortunately it is time to sell my car. My wife got a job in another country to I’m trying to get rid of stuff as we prepare to move. I’m a daily lurker on your site and wondered if this was something that fits. Would […]
Volvo wagons had always been “cool” to drive around since the 1927 Volvo PV4 hit the streets with a thin diagonal rod holding the “iron mark” emblem in front of the grill. The PV444 added to that coolness with a modern style wagon and you can’t forget the iconic boxy body 145/245/740/940/850 wagons of the […]
(Update 5/30/2018, the beast is still for sale with new lower price of $5900).

This next car is a 1981 Mercedes-Benz 240D located in NYC that comes as a seller submission from Jeremy who writes: Yes, it has rust in the fenders and bottom of drivers door. Yes, it has some blowby. Yes the clearcoat is peeling, the paint is original, it has a couple inexplicable dents. The glow plugs […]
