I’m still currently going through a Stranger Things withdrawal. And if you’re in the same boat as me, then there might be a some relief for you in buying Barb’s 1988 Volkswagen Cabriolet.
Many of us feel we are living in pessimistic times at best, so it’s like a ray of sunshine on a cloudy day to see some pure, unadulterated optimism. Let this Craigslist ad for a Chevy S10 suffering from a heap of problems—the least of which was temporarily being on fire—serve as a refresher for your world-weary soul.
What’s better than the Subaru WRX? If you ask me, it’s putting the WRX’s wonderful turbo boxer engine into something that’s small and light and cool and isn’t a four-door sedan with a giant wing. I have long dreamed of swapping a WRX motor into a VW Karmann-Ghia, but this ‘Rex-swapped 1975 Dino 308GT4 for sale on…
For sale right now in Colorado is a bearded, flannel-wearing millennial’s dream: a vintage Mercedes Benz 190 diesel that solves the problem of high rent with a built-in camper. It’s actually a really cool setup.
As Jalopnik’s resident car buying expert and professional car shopper, I get emails. Lots of emails. I’ve decided to pick a few questions and try to help out. This week we are discussing the best place to list your used car, getting a used Lexus vs a new Toyota, and warranties on salvage cars.
Limousines are usually stretched versions of luxury cars or they’re silly cars that were stretched as a joke. But then there’s this car: a 1980s Honda Accord, which is oddly stuck in neither category: it was never luxurious enough to be a real limo, and it wasn’t really absurd enough to be a joke. It really makes no…
I just don’t get it. Somehow we live in a world where non car-enthusiasts keep buying SUVs with no off-road capability, and car enthusiasts keep spending ridiculous sums on Porsche 911s. All this when really, they should all be buying this five-speed 1990 Plymouth Voyager Turbo for much, much less. What am I not…
It looks like a normal, mid-‘80s Buick Regal on the outside, but under the hood and inside, a Toyota fan did something deeply, maniacally absurd. And perhaps ingenious.
Robert Falck from Vancouver is selling a 1989 Cadillac Brougham limo that has skis instead of front wheels, and tracks instead of rear wheels. It’s a wacky build that was made specifically for the big screen, and it can be yours for only $6,000.
First off, I feel like I should make clear that this does not appear to be a joke, or a scam or anything like that. I’ve been in contact with the person who posted the ad, and they maintain this is all genuine: some lucky person can drive, for free, a rare and lovely Citroën XM in exchange for a bit of driving the…
It seems like everyone has a crazy Craigslist buyer story, but this reader who was trying to sell a classic Mini got into what started as a price negotiation and somehow unwound into a weird racist tirade. Buyers like this make a solid argument for trade-ins.
From an engineering standpoint, this Dodge Caravan-turned-pickup truck (which I’m now dubbing “Caratruck”) for sale on Facebook Marketplace is a disaster. But from an enthusiast’s standpoint, who gives a damn? This machine is incredible.
If “Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap” crescendos in your head and your pulse picks up a little while you read this Craigslist ad, offering a Toyota MR2 in trade for labor on a Porsche 914, welcome to Jalopnik, you have found your people.
Right in the cross section of “cool car” and “drive ’em don’t hide ’em” is this gloriously well-loved 1995 Porsche 911, for sale, while also being on an adventure from Los Angeles to Anchorage and back. Is it possible for a car to be clean and filthy at the same time?
A Philadelphia Craigslist ad caught our eye with its photos of a Ford Excursion crashed into a bank lobby, but that’s probably the least weird chapter of this SUV’s history, which involves an arrest, lasers and Snoop Dogg. Not to mention being run into by a drunk driver and somehow sustaining zero damage, dragging a…
I know I’m speaking with a huge audience of people looking for Rolls-Royces on the same site you go to find a “rust free” Geo Metro with a rebuilt title, but be wary about this red and gold knockoff, for it is not the opulent British luxury sedan you seek. It is an imposter.
“Funny” Craigslist car sale ads: overdone? Surely. But every now and then one rises above the rest and becomes a work of literary genius—even if it was pretty obviously created by machines instead of humans.
To Detroiters hunting for a car on Craigslist, consider this a warning: The phrases “no rust” and “a little rust” do not mean what you think they mean. But fear not, for today I shall decode the special language used among Motor City automobile sellers.
Craigslist, for all intents and purposes, is a great place. It’s where you can find sketchy new roommates, put out feelers for used vacuum cleaners and perhaps flip that lawnmower you stole from you neighbor for cash real quick. And, apparently, it’s a place where you can find used Porsche 959s!
In this week’s installment of “All The Craigslist Shitboxes Readers Have Been Tempting Me With Lately,” we begin by looking at a 1993 Plymouth Voyager that’s missing a bit of thorax.
