Just like the Top Gear America Special, you have $1000 to buy a car to drive across the country. What would you get?

Rules:

1. The listing must be $1000 or less, but it doesn’t matter where you find it. If you’re looking at a Canadian car, let’s still say it’s $1000, to keep the number nice.

2. It can be anywhere. Ebay, Autotrader, Craigslist, Kijiji, etc.

3. Reliability doesn’t matter (you’ve got a big production crew, after all), but the car should be running (no engineless projects).

Assuming it runs (the ad says nothing), I’d take this sweet Jag XJS.
