Another week means another entry this series featuring the sweet cars we found online.

To compile this list, I search as much of Facebook Marketplace and Craigslist as I can for interesting vehicles that don’t cost a lot. They may be hilariously unreliable, unique, tuned or maybe something that stops me in my tracks. Sadly, prices for some models are trending higher due to the pandemic, but I think some good deals are still out there.

The Alfa Romeo 164 was the last sedan that Alfa Romeo offered in America before beginning its long hiatus. The 164 was built on the Tipo Quattro platform developed by Saab and Fiat. That platform was used for the Lancia Thema, Fiat Croma and Saab 9000, but none of those cars came with the 183-HP 3.0-liter V6 designed by Giuseppe Busso. This one does and it comes attached to a manual transmission.

These cars appear to be appreciating in value, but this one is up for grabs for a reasonable price. It’s $6,750 on Facebook Marketplace in Brunswick, Maryland, with 109,000 miles.

Check this out, this sedan has an inline five-cylinder engine with a manual transmission. But that’s not all, it’s all-wheel-drive with locking center and rear differentials, too. That engine was only good for 115-HP, but it still has all of the components for good fun.

The car appears to be in fair condition and it’s something you certainly won’t see every day.

It’s $3,500 on Facebook Marketplace in Colorado Springs, Colorado, with 223,223 miles on the odometer.

This Honda Elite comes with a 150cc single-cylinder engine and a wild custom body. A Honda Elite is a fun scooter when stock, but this one cranks it up to 11. It comes with an airplane-inspired DIY body kit that’s said to use real aircraft aluminum. The scooter also comes with some red, white and blue party lights and three off-road lights.

The price for this unique ride is $1,420 on Facebook Marketplace out of Lake Stevens, Washington, with 1,600 miles. I see that humorous price, seller! Check out the ad, it’s worth the read.

The first-generation Audi TT is a lovely sportscar that doesn’t break the bank. I’ve been seeing these skyrocketing in price over the past year, so it’s nice to see one for a reasonable ask that doesn’t have a million miles. This one has a couple of issues but appears to be in good shape, overall.

It’s $3,500 on Facebook Marketplace in Janesville, Wisconsin, with 153,000 miles on the odometer.

This week’s enthusiast car was my hardest challenge yet. I wanted to find a BMW M3 with a manual transmission, clean title, in good condition for under $10,000. I failed at such a feat but this one comes pretty close.

Mileage on its odometer is high, at 160,000 but the car presents well with service records that suggest that it’s in good shape. The car sports a 3.2-liter inline six-cylinder engine producing  240-HP with a manual transmission.

This speedy drop-top is $12,000 in Denver, Colorado, on Craigslist. The ad is very detailed and comes with a photo album, too.

This International 200 Cabover is the kind of truck that will look good doing any kind of work, or just rolling through a parade. It features a gas-powered V8 engine, a 5-speed manual transmission, an 18ft bed, a twin hoist and a 2-speed axle.

The seller said that it used to be owned by Marathon Oil and used as a fire engine, then it was owned by someone who used it in parades.

It’s offered for a reasonable $7,000 on Facebook Marketplace in Jasonville, Indiana. I’m glad I don’t have a giant truck-sized hole in my fleet because I’d buy this in a heartbeat.

The Suzuki B-King is what you get when you take a Suzuki Hayabusa and strip away the bodywork to make a streetfighter motorcycle. It was only sold for a single year, making it a fairly rare steed. This one only has 5,700 miles on the odometer, making it nearly factory-fresh.

It’s $8,500 on Facebook Marketplace in Muskegon, Michigan.

This vehicle caters to the person that wants to camp in a van down by the river, in style. The Toyota Van is the American version of the Toyota R20/R30, which was also known as the LiteAce, MasterAce and TownAce. This particular example is said to have thousands of hours of work into it. The seller says that they’re a machinist by trade and have gone through the engine, giving it rod bearings, a new head, gaskets, hoses, wiring and more.

Perhaps the best part is that the van is setup for camping and it’s been just about all over the country.

It’s $10,000 on Facebook Marketplace in Asheville, North Carolina, with 240,000 miles.

The final entry on this list is a Buick that would feel right at home at Radwood. The Reatta was a car that was ahead of its time. Inside of the coupe, you’ll find the instrumentation, HVAC and radios all controlled by screens. This setup is like what you’d find in the cars of today, but over 30 years ago. It was powered by Buick’s dependable 3800 V6.

This one needs a little bit of work, but appears to be in daily driver condition.

It’s $2,200 on Facebook Marketplace in Lafayette, Indiana, with 140,000 miles on the odometer.


That’s it for this week! Have you purchased a car from one of these posts? If so, I want to know.
