Back before the Cadillac Escalade or Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen littered prep school drop-off zones, this was the vehicle that wealthy country club cowboys bought for their first wives, and tried […]
This next tip comes from JAS who writes: Dear DT, No, this is not your usual 1966 VW. This is for any survivalist out there who will need to ”bug’ out in a hurry at the next zombie apocalypse (or 2016, when Hillary Clinton is elected president). It seems to have everything necessary for Arizona […]
Welcome back to DT’s annual end of summer tradition of featuring the craziest cars for sale on the web, a segment we like to call Loony Labor Day. To qualify as a Loony Labor day entry, the cars will be insane, or the seller will be nuts…or maybe even the buyers. For 2014, our first […]
