This next car is described as one owner until 2015, but I don’t think it matters if it had 52 owners in the last 42 years, because it looks in amazing shape for what it is. There is a psychosis among certain car guys that a little old lady owned car is the best…but those owners are almost all middle aged guys who take nice care of their classics, so I don’t know why they obsess over grandma’s wagon. I’m not a therapist, but here we are again. Find this 1978 Toyota Corolla Wagon offered for $7,500 buy-it-now in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho via eBay.
This next car comes as a tip from SecondMouse who writes: Did somebody say “Corvair“? Ask the internet, and you shall receive. Here is a low mileage (43,000 original miles) 1964 Chevy Corvair Monza Club Coupe in good survivor condition with the reasonable asking price of $5900. Find this 1964 Chevrolet Corvair in Magnolia, TX, […]
I’m conflicted about this next car. First it is an awesomely sick shade of teal (or is that sickly awesome…I dunno) in original paint (wow!) covering a survivor manual trans 360V8 survivor…just so many stories in that steel. But then I think it is a lot of money to pay for a car with manual drum brakes (aka thighmaster brakes) and a seriously scuzzy engine bay. But wow..this is the kind of patina I can appreciate. Find this 1969 Ford F-250 Custom Cab offered for $8,500 buy-it-now in Vancouver, WA via ebay.
At first I was afraid, I was econofied, Kept thinking I could never live with my engine turned to its side But my front wheels plowed so many miles thinking how you did me wrong And I grew strong And I learned how to live with bronze And my plastics black My seats are tan […]
If there is one thing that young car buyers must understand, it is this; they are only original once. If this next car is purchased by a well meaning 21 year old version of myself…it could well end up with a decent new paint job and a fire breathing 350 v8 build connected to a […]
The list of small 4-door pickup trucks isn’t very large — a fact pointed out by the builder of this custom machine, who writes: I built this because I have always felt that the US manufacturers totally missed the boat on the mid-size 4-door pickup market. They built some – but they were all weird-shaped, weird-looking, […]
The Triumph TR7 isn’t a car that’ll make you fall in love at first sight. In fact, you probably need to see on 15 times before you acquire the taste, but like a fine cauliflower purée ..the TR7 isn’t for the new car collector or someone getting their feet wet in classic cars…but for the […]
This next car…errr…two wheeler…comes from tipper Brad who writes: I thought you might dig this very interesting (presumably rare) little motorbike—although I cannot recall whether you are a cars-only outlet…This old cycle definitely deserves the label survivor, esp. considering it was produced in Europe just as WW2 was getting underway. It seems like all the […]
What was sold here new in the United States as the Volkswagen EuroVan was actually the 4th generation of the Transporter / Type 2 / Bus / Kombi / etc. The EuroVan was the first of the bread loaf VW vans to have its engine and drive wheels up front, finally ditching the rear/rear setup […]
Most cars have a bell shaped popularity curve, but have you ever noticed that some cars have almost a step function of popularity — one minute they are all over the road and then suddenly they all just up and vanish. This seems to have been the case for the legendary Volkswagen Mk 3.5 Cabrio […]
