Another week means another entry into our series featuring the sweet cars I found for sale 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 fortune. They may be hilariously unreliable, remarkably unusual, questionably tuned, or just something that stops me in my tracks. Prices for some cars are trending higher, but I think some good deals are still out there.

Here’s a rare little truck, a Dakota Pickup.

Power comes from a 3.9-liter V6 that makes 125 HP, transmitted through a manual transmission. About 3,700 of these were made, making them a rare truck.

The Toyota Blizzard is a tiny JDM 4x4 that’s based on the Daihatsu Rugger. It’s compact, but has plenty of off-roading punch with part-time four-wheel-drive, two-speed transfer case and beefy solid axles. The SUV is powered by a 2.4-lier turbodiesel four making a respectable 94 HP.

I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a more 1980s Japanese vehicle than this one. Check out its sweet graphics and gauge cluster proudly hyping its turbocharger.

It looks to be in good condition inside and out and it’s $17,000 on Facebook Marketplace in Seattle, Washington.

This week’s enthusiast car is a popular sporty roadster that is revered by enthusiasts for its 9,000 RPM redline. It’s a car that we’ve said is still worth worshiping, with its screaming engine, rear-wheel-drive and manual transmission. I’m not surprised that it can be hard to find them for cheap.
