Everyone loves a good surprise, whether it’s a cake in the break room or a swift kick in the pants when you stab the go pedal in a car that looks like it came out of a rental lot. That’s why today I’m asking you to show me the best damn sleepers you can find for less than $5,000 on eBay. Impress me.

Here are the rules:

  • One submission per post.
  • Selections aren’t limited to simply ‘cars’ (kit cars, trucks, and military/commercial vehicles included)
  • Cars must have a realistic selling price under $5,000.
  • Completed and sold listings can be included.
  • You can add modifications, as long as it doesn’t go over the total budget.
  • Write a short reason why your car is the best sleeper for the money.

Start here and find a car that would add some much needed tire smoke to your weekly bagel run.
