I was tipped off about a very exciting and rare car available on Craigslist, and the unnamed tipper wasn’t wrong—this thing is an absolute unicorn. It’s also exactly the kind of car that, if you find it interesting, will make you realize just how deep down the automotive rabbit hole you’ve fallen.
A couple years ago, Dodge unearthed the Challenger and Charger Hellcat. They made 707 horsepower from a supercharged 6.2-liter V8. Those cars are... fine, I guess, but if you ask me the logic of “slap a blower on it” is far more insane on their big cousin, the Dodge Viper.
When it comes to modding, tuning and drifting cars, the immediate go-to platform that comes to mind is the Nissan 240SX. Lightweight, rear-driven and well-balanced, finding a stock, untouched 240SX is like finding an clean Toyota Supra. They’re out there, but they’re rare. And most likely expensive. We think we found…
Ferraris are far too expensive for a normal person to own, right? What if I told you that you could own your very own “Ferrari” “F430” “Scuderia” (winking aggressively) for the price of a well-pptioned Honda Civic? Before you press the panic button on your car keys, check out this Craigslist post for a Ferrari F430…
Selling a car privately can be a royal pain. With all of the dumb questions and low ballers it’s no wonder so many people just trade their old ride to the dealership. But if you have resorted to essentially yelling at your potential buyers, maybe private sales is not for you.
I can’t remember the last time I saw a clean, unmolested Nissan 240SX. At some point—I believe it was earlier this decade—all of them seemingly got stanced, turned into drift cars, engine-swapped, grafted with various body parts from the Silvia and 180SX and just otherwise Frankenstein’d into something new and crazy.…
Falls Church, Virginia (outside of Washington, D.C.) has the lowest poverty level of any independent city or county in America, as the U.S. Census Bureau found in 2011. But it’s still a surprise that the city got itself a Volvo for a cop car back in the ‘80s. Also, now it could be yours.
It’s a summer Friday afternoon and I’m the mood to play a game. A poster on Craigslist needs help identifying a car and he’s offering a cash reward to the person who can do it. Money, people! There’s money in this!
Every fiber of my being is compelling me to buy this giant pink dump truck I found on Craigslist for five grand and, please, I can’t afford to make this mistake.
You’re the best, right? Of course you are. You’ve been to the best schools, know all the best words, and were bred for success like a goddamn racehorse. I get it. So why would you drive some overpriced shitbox that any jackass can own? You wouldn’t, which is why you need to buy this incredibly rare Trump Gold Edition…
The other weekend I found myself at a car show put on by Magnus Walker, with row after row of pristine Porsche 911s, all with engine bays so clean you could eat off of them. It is with those 911s in mind that I ask, which one of you is going to buy this crapheap widebody Porsche 928 for $4,000?
Hello, out there. Do you like having things such as money, stability, or all of your limbs attached to your body? This car is not for you.
What we have here is the ultimate fusion of two of the most popular modified cars: the Toyota Supra and Jeep Wrangler. If you ever wanted a rear-drive Jeep with the most legendary turbocharged six cylinder ever to come from Japan, now is your chance.
The Mitsubishi 3000GT VR4 Twin Turbo is absolutely a fascinating car. Rare, too! A car way ahead of its time, full of advanced electronics and four-wheel steering and two whole turbos. It’s amazing! Is such a remarkable car worth $500,000? Only if it has an original Banksy in the trunk, or you’re as deluded as this…
The veins in his biceps bulged but he was only halfway through the set. Pump, pump, pump. Thirteen, fourteen, fifteen. Switch the weight to the other hand. Repeat.
There are two rules here: it has to run and drive.
The seats I currently have in my car are of the brace-against-the-door-while-cornering variety, and this has put me on a hunt for cool old vintage racing seats as replacements. This search has brought me to the rarer-than-rare ‘Paddy Hopkirk Carrera Recliners,’ possibly the best seats that can be put in a car.
I get sent a lot of Craigslist ads for weird and/or shitty cars by readers. I regard this as one of the biggest perks of my job, right after Jalopnik’s very generous policies regarding colonics. An ad I was sent this morning is interesting, not so much because of the car for sale, but more because of who posted the…
It is the Jalopnik staff’s unanimous opinion that you should buy a BMW Z3. But which Z3? There are so many. I’m here to tell you! It is this Z3, a 1997 Z3 in green. Did I mention it’s a lifted Z3 on big ol’ Jeep Wrangler-sized tires? Because it is!
