What I Want: Cheap, 6-8 cylinders, coupe, RWD, anonymous, easy to work on, comfortable on the highway, not a money pit. I feel like this meets all of those criteria except maybe the last one.
Had to send this one in to rob:
Never mind the inexplicable filter on all the pictures. Here’s a 5-speed BMW wagon for sale near me that I’d give a nice price for the following reasons, some more obvious than the others.
I was looking at graverobber’s NPOCP entry for today, and I’ve always wondered what the purpose of these little bullet-shaped decorations on the front fenders of GM cars from this era were.
Welcome back to Flip or Flop, the NPoCP variant with a bit of a twist. Instead of deciding whether it is a good price for yourself, you decide whether you can buy it, fix it, and sell it for a decent profit. Today’s candidate is this 1994 Dodge Dakota.
This sketchy low price low miles Evo X
I have no words. The ad has loads of them. Buckle in, it’s quite the novel.
2005 Legacy 2.5 GT, manual, 129k kilometres. And it’s $7,995, which seems pretty reasonable. Money to buy it with would be nice. Saw it while walking last week, and it looks pretty good in person.
I stumbled upon this Craigslist post for a $600 2003 Lincoln Aviator with what describes seemingly easy problems. On first glance it looks like a great candidate for a flip, but as common sense began to take over, it looks like it could just as easily roll over me.
Today’s nice price or crack pipe is a bit different. Usually I find a random car off craigslist and poll the Oppo community to determine whether it is NPoCP. Well, today we are looking at something a bit more reasonably attainable.
Looks like we got a record beater today. (Note: I voted CP too)
1975 Bricklin SV-1. 85,400 kilometres, $14,998 CAD, and the safest car on the road. Sure, your car may have drain plugs for the oil pan and other fluids, but what car has drain plugs for the interior*?
Small truck sounds fun. This 1992 Toyota with 148k kilometres looks like it could be a good time. Is it worth the $5,500 CAD, though?
Welcome to NPoCP, where Oppo takes it’s imaginary hordes of craigslist car buying cash and determines if the presented listing is worthy of their monopoly funds.
So, for the most expensive one in Toronto, a 1995 Corrado being sold at McLaren Toronto with 67k kilometres on the clock. How much? $37,999. USD. Don’t care how cool or unique it is, that’s a lot of money for an old Volkswagen.
Because I think this is a joke. The claim. The price. The whole Thing.
Ah the random jaunts to Craigslist. What can I find today? A gently used Malibu, a free bookshelf, a can of ramen noodles. So many things.
