119k miles. CP for days.
Stupid low miles. Loaded Non-Prerunner RWD with the 3.4! But STEPSIDE. Why was this even an option? These pickups are barely above the ground as it is, so who the hell needed one in stepside form?
Have you ever regretted a car purchase while driving it home from the very place you bought it? Earlier this year I acquired a “fragrant” Subaru for a Gambler 500 build and was hanging my head in shame within 15 minutes. Here’s how it went down.
My daily craigslist search for stupid cars has turned up this lovely creature—a midnight blue 1985 Mercury Topaz for the low, low price of $600. Why do I want this so badly?
I’m craving a manual BMW Wagon so I searched CL and these are the mistakes most accessible to me. Rank them from “Don’t do it” all the way to “It’ll ruin your life, //AMG = AutoMatic Gearbox!”
1972 Buick Sun Coupe for $6000, claimed to run and drive well. Only a few thousand of these were made, the option package centers around a folding vinyl sunroof. If it’s as decent condition as it’s presented it looks like a very NP.

It looks kind of like Toyota’s take on the Lancia Thesis.
Cause I’ve always wanted a Subaru, and now thanks to my wife, I has one. 07 Legacy Outback 2.5i with an eye watering 249,800 miles on it, and a 5 speed. Awesome.

Last time on “Buying and Building a Shitcar Off Craigslist,” we had blown the 240's engine. A shattered timing guide allowed for the timing chain to play ping pong inside the engine. Naturally, we pulled the drivetrain, shoved the car into the backyard and pretended it didn’t exist whenever anyone asked about it.
Post cars you know will be way more expensive than the purchase’d price.
1957 Lloyd 600
For $400 bucks yah thats a compelling offroad shenanigans rig.
The last thing I need is another project car, and yet, here is a rusty AMC Eagle wagon, calling to me....
Bear with me, I’m just trying to figure out if I’ve gone mad. I’ve been riding motorcycles for as long as I’ve been driving - even longer if you consider dirt bikes. In the last 12 years I’ve owned 5 bikes, however thinking back they’ve all been Japanese built bikes made between 1976 and 1982. All but one were…
