Modifying cars is fun. Really, really fun. So fun, in fact, that it's incredibly easy to get carried away with all the expensive enjoyment and go bankrupt. That's why I'm here to save you from your inevitable financial ruin by challenging you to find the best modified cars under $20,000 on eBay.

Here are the rules:

  • Selections aren't limited to simply 'cars' (kit cars, trucks, and military/commercial vehicles included)
  • Cars must have a realistic selling price under $20,000.
  • Cars must be operable/easily restored to running condition.
  • Completed and sold listings can be included.
  • You're encouraged to add modifications, as long as it doesn't go over the total budget.
  • Write a short reason why your car is the best modified car for under $20,000.

Now go find a car that will one-up everyone else for the least money.

I'll arrange the best selections afterwards. You have until the end of the weekend.
