A cheap car, but an interesting car. A car that is probably a bad idea, but only has to commute 12 miles on level ground in often cool air, and doesn’t even always have to start because I can drive my truck in that case. See how I
open up my options enable myself like that?
This hard to find ‘77 Lancia HPE should be a reliable daily driver. For $1900, what could possibly go wrong? It could easily
break down while carrying carry parts to and fro, for my other Lancia project that will probably never be finished.
Volvo 544,122, 745T, 945T, 855T
Alfa Milano, GTV6 (unrealistic but why not) & 164
BMW E21, E3 Bavaria, E28, E36
Saab 900 Turbo/SPG, 9000 Turbo
Ford shoebox, Falcon, Fairlane, and Foxstang
VW Baja, Mk1 & Mk2 GTI, Squareback. Also Quantum Syncro and Vanagons. Don’t judge me.
MBZ 190E 2.6 manual (they exist!)
Audi 4000Q, Coupe GT, UrS4 & UrS6 Avant
80's Toyota Celica/Supra
240SX (yeah right, like any good ones are left)
AE86 Corolla (see above)
Jaguar XJ Series 3
Lexus ES300 (admittedly not interesting, but damn it’s a nice car)
Porsche 924S & 944
What else could I look for that could reasonably be had for under $5,000 or so? Manual transmission preferred but not mandatory.
