Welcome to a very special Thursday Twister — and the ultimate test of your junkyard IQ. Are you a cheap car savant or just another joker who gets fleeced by slimy used car dealers? Put these 9 cheap cars in order from cheapest to most expensive (based on asking price) to find out.
These 9 cars are all advertised around the US for less than $9,000. One is sub $999, another is between $1,000 to $1,999, the next is between $2,000 and $2,999….et cetera. They are all manual gearbox cars and they are all currently for sale — and these are not bidding prices, these are asking prices. You need to put them in order of their asking prices in the comments below. A few more details about each car.
The Vette is a C4 with LT1 and 6-speed, but it is pretty ugly and has a huge Punisher sticker on the back glass.
The 300ZX has been off the road since 2010 and needs some body work, but it runs/drives with no smoke and shifts in all gears.
The B5 Passat is going to need a new thermostat per the seller before you get it on the road…but if you believe that I have a bridge you might be interested in buying too.
The M3 has a few aftermarket go-fast goodies on it, and there are some problems, including a non-functioning sunroof and no AC.
The Model A was restored by the seller’s father 15 years ago and it has been in a garage since, but it runs/drives nicely and has been converted to 12 volt electrics.
The Sunbeam Rapier is a strange one to find on these shores. It runs/drives and has new paint, but the seller criptically mentions (in ALLCAPS) NEEDS SOME TLC ONLY.
The 240D runs/drives well and has less than 300k miles on the odometer…and look at that interior. Yummy.
The MG TD is actually a Volkswagen based kit car and will need some restoration before you drive around like a boss.
The 122S Amazon has some rust, and needs the cooling system replaced, but the seller has all the parts (thermostat, radiator, etc) and the car runs/drives.
Now, you get to put them in order of cheapest to most expensive.
