In honor of today’s big solar eclipse, were serving up a classic Celica Sunchaser for our Nice Price or Crack Pipe challenge. Let’s see if its price can send you over the moon.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m impressed with the ingenuity/vision/execution/hubris of the entire concept. It looks like he knew exactly what he wanted, and did it. It relatively clean, even down to the rivets (or screws?) holding the rear, uh, bed in place. Hell, he even rerouted the fuel tank filler. It appears to be wired…
First of all we have this thing, a “Muntz,” whatever it is. Why have a brand-new Audi or Lexus when you can rock this highly patina’d rolling body shell with engine (whether or not it’s actually connected to a transmission or even bolted in is ambiguous) and, uh, two seats I guess?
Kansas is often derisively referred to as one of the ‘fly-over states.’ Considering today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe Alfa 164 lives there, and it’s a Quaddrifoglio, you might consider flying there instead. That is, if its price doesn’t have you flying off the handle.
I happen to know someone who previously owned this exact Focus (he later bought a Lexus IS) and he stated the title may be a bit sketchy (it’s not clean.)
Whoa, it has been a looooong time since I did NPoCP.ph! (excluding the shorts I would post from time to time) Normally like Graverobber’s counterpart, I would talk about the last entry’s poll results, but that was a long time ago! So...let’s start a new chapter!
My series that compares classic cars to an album/band/music that came out during the same era. This is the first episode, on a 1986 Buick Grand National. Tell me what you guys think.
You know you want it,
So, are we in a bubble or what? I would totally write perhaps a $35,000 check and not a penny more, but here in the land of silicon and silliness we have this:
For only $98,400, you can have......a Ford Raptor. Whoop dee ding. This one, however, packs 780hp! Nice price or crack pipe?
Working late as usual - had time for this one for the DSM gearheads (yes we are a dying breed) but this one became too much not to share
Today's FP "NPoCP" is a Toyota not-Tacoma pickup truck stuffed chock-full of Supra turbo bits. It could be a proper sleeper were it not for the enormous intercooler where roughly 50% of the front bumper used to be. Neat truck, but not as subtle as it could be, and certainly a strong CP at the $15k ask.
Good evening ladies and gentlemen, my research in to gearheads and jalops continues and have stumbled upon possibly the best find of the day today on craigslist. A prestine, with some rocker rust, MG MGB 1977 Yellow Roadster. A true enthusiast's dream car. Ready to be eagerly driven through the back roads, by ways,…
So one of my roommates was looking for a car. He wanted something that was easy to maintain and good on gas (a.k.a. slow and boring). We were scanning through Craigslist and I came upon this...
As they say: You can never spend too much, you can only buy too early.
That's right, this beauty could be yours for $14,686 (Canadian, of course). It's only got 46,000 kilometres on it, and the finest wood panelling this side of a PT Cruiser. Also, it's got a backup camera, because if you drive this, you must be blind. Nice price or crack pipe?
This 1979 Ford Mustang 2.3 "Four Eyes" is an early Fox Body car that has been restored in Germany. There are no real details on the restoration, other than the seller saying that "body/paint/axles/brakes/interior have all been restored".
