It’s here. It’s finally here. The first Honda Civic Type R to legally hit our shores is here. And it’s up for auction.
If you were one of those kids in high school who couldn’t get enough of Mock United Nations Day, or you’re just like me and can’t get enough 1990s aesthetic in your life because yes, you are simple and predictable and trendy, then this 1990 Nissan President Sovereign is perfect for you.
Everything seems fine until you look inside. Interested in one hell of a project car with a “checkered past”? See this 1987 Ferrari Testarossa up for auction by our friends at Bring A Trailer. The best projects are extremely questionable ones.
Somebody spent seven years working on blending a 1984 El Camino and a 1987 Buick Grand National, and now it’s for sale on eBay for a Buy It Now price of $55,000 with open bidding. Wow.
I was just about ready to give up on everything. Today sucked. Polls show that maybe people are dumber than I thought. Halloween is over. Fuck it all. Then BringATrailer had an E30 being auctioned at the same time as 2007 R63 AMG minivan. The minivan smoked it. America is good.
There are a great many things that this beautiful country, America, has created that we no longer need. Jello salad from the 1950s, for instance. It’s fine to acknowledge it as something that happened, but you don’t need to preserve any of it for later generations. So why the hell does this 1981 Chevy Impala with only…
The BMW 1 Series hatchback is near the top of my “forbidden foreign fruit” car list. For two generations now, it’s offered hatch practicality with manual gearboxes, potent four- and six-cylinder generations and glorious rear-wheel drive. What’s not to love? Problem is, it was never sold in America—but this one on …
“I should’ve bought a Miata” I said to myself while staring at my new car. It was dirty, noisy, and had puked coolant all over itself after having to be pushed up the driveway. Now, two and a half years later, I’m extremely glad that I didn’t.
Thanks to this website designed to bankrupt those of us who love cars, I found out that there’s an absurdly rare Volkswagen-derived car for sale on eBay: a Porsche Type 823, which is just the pedant’s name for a wartime VW wearing a tank costume.
“Are we in the tree of trust? The trust tree?” the text demanded to know. We were. A few weeks later I was driving a Merkur the color of cheap lipstick from Georgia to Virginia. The XR4Ti had gone from Tanner Foust to Rutledge Wood to Me and then to another kid named Matt. And now you can own it. Buy this car.
Can you tell what this melted blob of steel and despair used to be? There’s a hint in the title. And maybe you can guess from the wheels.
Have we got a car for you! A bona-fide classic! The best in Gallic ingenuity and Space-Age thriftiness! A funky little ride that gets great mileage and packs in all the charm! Yes, this beige 1980 Renault Le Car is a classic, and, some may argue, was always a classic. Never say that even the French, foisting this upon…
Since this is Jalopnik, It’s safe to say that a good number of you would appreciate a classic BMW ///M car with a bit more practicality. Our friends at Bring A Trailer are listing this wonderful ‘93 M5 Touring with a starting bid of only $15,000.
I have this fantasy where I get some type of massive windfall and purchase one of my dream cars, a Singer 911. At over $300,000 those masterpieces are out of reach for most buyers. However, this modified 1970 911E from with a current bid of $25,000 will give you the look (sort of) for less.
The 90s were good times, the rock was grungy and the mid-engine sports cars were wedge shaped with pop-up headlights. Now that first generation NSX prices are getting nuts, perhaps it’s time to consider an alternative. Our friends at Bring A Trailer have an awesome Lotus Espirit S4 turbo with a reasonable reserve.
This little mutt is an AMC Spirit AMX, a mini-musclecar from the late seventies with flares n’ white-lettered tires n’ a big ol’ hood decal - and a somewhat lamentable 130hp V8. Based on the Gremlin, it’s a sawed-off runt that few remember. Well you’d remember this one: it’s got a 96-inch wheelbase and a built 401ci…
Our friends over at Bring a Trailer are listing an absolutely beautiful E34 Touring with a swapped 282 horsepower 4.4 liter V8 and a manual transmission. The owner could not get the car CARB certified for CA, so now is your chance to buy it. Current bid is $7100; this is what Jalop dreams are made of.
