Another week means another entry into 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. Prices for some models are trending higher due to the pandemic, but I think some good deals are still out there.

Here is one serious sleeper of a Volkswagen Touareg. What you’re looking at is a Touareg V8, but under the hood is a PES Supercharger system. But the mods don’t just stop at the added power. It has custom wheels, a custom body kit, custom sound system and more.

This one is a bit outside my normal dirt-cheap price range, but I think it’s still worth the mention. It’s $12,900 on Facebook Marketplace out of New Boston, Michigan, with 168,400 miles.

Here is a cute little camper that’s full of style. These are getting harder to find in good condition nowadays. The interior appears to be renovated and looks absolutely cozy. If there’s any downside to this compact RV, it’s that these are known for being pitifully slow. The Toyota is backed by a 22R-E 2.4-liter inline-four making about 105 horsepower. It’s a reliable engine, but don’t expect to go anywhere quickly.

This Toyota Mini Cruiser is $8,500 on Facebook Marketplace in Warsaw, Kentucky, with about 44,000 miles.

The final vehicle on this list is an impressively sensible van. Built by AM General, it was designed for fleets with an emphasis on wheelchair access. The van features low floors with wide doors for easy access, and it has lots of room inside. When I first saw these show up around Chicago as taxis, I thought that they looked a bit like a modern interpretation of an old London Taxi.

These may not be pretty, but they are enormously practical. This VPG MV-1 is $6,995 on Facebook Marketplace in Columbus, Ohio, with 181,500 miles.
