With fuel prices in decline, it's more affordable than ever to own a car with a ridiculously large 8-cylinder engine and a raucous exhaust note. Your mission is to find the best cars with 8-cylinder engines for less than an $8,000 budget. Remember, there is no replacement for displacement.


Here are the rules:

  • Selections aren't limited to simply 'cars' (kit cars, trucks, and military/commercial vehicles included)
  • One entry per post.
  • Cars must have a realistic selling price under $8,000.
  • Cars must be operable/easily restored to running condition.
  • 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 best 8-cylinder powered car for less than $8,000.

Now go find a car that is advertised as an unrelenting burnout machine in its brochure.

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

High-output, super smooth V8? Check. Chassis considered by many to be the most balanced sedan of all time? Check. Excellent 2002 amenities? Check. Oozing non-ostentatious class? Check.


Also, can I please be un-greyed? I comment pretty regularly and only rarely do I try to inject porn onto the comments.
