The C3 generation Corvette isn’t the most collectable of Vettes, but that shouldn’t stop you from wanting to get your 70s vibe on. Today’s example has a few dents and dings on its fiberglass body, but it also has a sweet custom wagon back rear end that looks awesome. It will need some expertise in […]
Do you ever find a listing for a car that leaves you with more questions than answers? What about a sedan delivery version of the infamous Chevy Vega that has a modernish DOHC V6 shoved under the hood. Where did that V6 come from? Why would you not include that little sprinkle of information in […]
This next car is an example of an E46 is not your ordinary wagon. The E46 generation wagon was available in the United States (unlike previous generations where we couldn’t get the “Euro-only” 3-series wagon, but BMW decided to only equip the car with the base model engines. But today some guy (or gal) with […]
Cadillac didn’t build wagons in the 60s, 70s, 80s, or 90s…in fact, the first factory wagon offering from Cadillac from the modern era is the 2010 CTS SportWagon, but you wouldn’t know that given the number of “coach-built” Caddiwagons you’ll find passing between buyers and sellers on ebay or craigslist or whatever. The fact that […]
This next car comes as a tip from David in Tampa who writes: I miss the unadorned simple honesty of this kind of truck. It’s like a child’s sketch of a truck, the truckiest of trucks that ever trucked a truck. Honestly, you’d have to have rocks in your head to shell out for whatever […]
I’ve never seen a Nissan Avenir before and to be honest, I don’t think I knew they existed. It is a JDM only piece of Nissan history that is based on the 2nd generation Nissan Prairie platform. Today’s Avenir Salut is powered by an SR20DET which puts that power to all four wheels. This is […]
The North American Ford Escort was a pile of miserable steaming…oh…hi. I didn’t expect Ford Escort Owners Club of North America board members to read this website…errr…let me try again. The North American Ford Escort wasn’t as scrumptious as the European Escort, but you don’t really see them on the road anymore. However, I think […]
From 1971 through 1994 you could go to a Dodge dealer and purchase a brand new subcompact Japanese car in sedan/coupe/wagon/hatchback form. It was called the Colt and was a rebadged version of the Mitsubishi Galant/Lancer and later the Mirage, but today’s example comes from a time when the impending fuel crisis of the early 70s was making drivers look for something smaller than the typical huge V8 offered by the domestic brands. In the back of that Dodge showroom you could find something called the Colt that was powered by a 1.6 or 2.0 liter 4-banger and drive home without refilling twice on the way. Find this 1974 Dodge Colt Wagon offered for $8,500 in Mountain View, CA via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!
om the malaise era seems like a strange choice. There is a reason you don’t see an Aspens on the road today, but the builder of this next custom has replaced every single part that would have been a reason your dad would have taught you some new words as the car was stalled on the side the road. The price might be well above what you’d expect an Aspen to ever be worth, but the end result looks good and is probably fun to drive around town. Find this 1979 Dodge Aspen offered for $14,000 in Ardmore, OK via craigslist. Tip from Kevin.
When I first received this tip with a rave review from DT regular Art C, I thought perhaps Art needed his CO2 detectors checked for function…but then I spent some more time examining the curves of this appliance white Escort and decided that I like it. Perhaps I got a computer virus from the tip? Anyway, some words of wisdom from Art: I don’t know why, but I want to buy this. I think it’s the blue interior combined with a manual wagon that is making me a little hot and steamy…Seriously though, this thing looks to be in GREAT shape! It’s a shame that motor is a dog and ford 90s build quality left something to be desired. Guaranteed to be the only one in your neighborhood though. Find this 1994 Ford Escort LX Wagon offered for $3,450 in Bristol, CT via craigslist.
