Crazy Czechs Build Tatra V8-Powered Trabant Drift Car, Will Sell It To…

Since I've been helping BobAsh » 11/21/08 12:00pm 11/21/08 12:00pm obtain American cars to ship to the Czech Republic, he's helping me find a nice Hell Project I can bring over here. Here's a car I considered buying- it's priced at the equivalent of $1,500- but then I realized that the California DMV would most likely have me clapped in irons the…

Longer, Higher, Wider, Lower: Swede Driven Mad By Sunless Winter,…

Some Swedes cope with the sunless Scandinavian winters in the sanest way possible: pounding caffeine and/or alcohol by the hogshead. Others, however, crunch through the snow out to the shed and fire up the cutting torch, which is then used to create works of genius such as this 1980 Volvo wagon, equipped with what… » 8/22/08 8:00am 8/22/08 8:00am

Audi, Lancia, or Ford: Which Hoonworthy Vintage Race Machine Would You…

SoNaive was shopping for a project Ford RS200- yeah, might as well aim high- and found these three 80s race cars, any one of which is capable of sending the entire Jalopnik staff into paroxysms of longing that threaten to shut down all operations for the rest of the week. So, it's Monday, you're hunkering down for a… » 8/11/08 2:45pm 8/11/08 2:45pm

Imagine The Possibilities: Dragon-Equipped Nissan Presidentamino!

The Japanese tradition of installing a big temple-like structure on a Caminoized sedan to make a hearse makes total sense to us, but wouldn't it be great to have an '89 Nissan Presidentamino with the rare and coveted Dragon Hearse option to use as your daily driver? Look at this thing! It is to regular hearses as a … » 6/04/08 8:00am 6/04/08 8:00am

Another Perfect Jalopnik Staff Car Located

We pleaded and begged and threatened, but nothing we could do would induce the Gawker Overlords to buy us the Carrera Panamericana '54 Lincoln for use as the Official Jalopnik Staff Car. We were brokenhearted, but all will be forgiven if the Overlords buy us this 1938 Peugeot 402, enabling us to roll up to events in… » 4/25/08 8:00am 4/25/08 8:00am

Yours For Only 55 Grand: 1957 Fletcher Aviator

When reader Thunder sent in the tip about this car, we all went "Damn!" But then we noticed the asking price and there was just this... silence. It's a reproduction of a 50s/60s Bonneville F-100 wink tank racer, with blown small-block and even license plates. Is it worth the price? Make the jump, take the poll, and… » 12/12/07 12:45pm 12/12/07 12:45pm
