The car market is pretty brutal right now. Supply chain issues and the semiconductor shortage have made sure of that. In fact, the average price of a used car is more than $28,000 now. Add another 20 grand to that number if you’re looking for a new car.

With all that in mind, it brings us to today’s question: what cars are absolute steals right now? They say a rising tide lifts all boats, but which ones do you think got left behind? Now, this is going to take a little research on your part – so you gotta head on over to your favorite car listing website to really be able to tell what’s a good deal.

If you ask me, one of the best deals out there right now are big boat Cadillac DeVilles from the early- to mid-70s. Pound for pound, it’s hard to get more value from a car than that. Plus, you’ll look like a man of taste (or an Italian) if you’ve got one.


Another great contender is the not-long-for-this world Chrysler 300. Now, forget about the newest one. That’s not what we’re talking about. 300 SRT-8s from the Bush Administration are the ones to look for. Maybe it’s because I grew up with these cars being everywhere that I love them, but I don’t know – they really just tickle something in my brain. You can get a 6.1-liter HEMI V8 wrapped in a huge (and good looking) body for less than $20,000 right now. If that’s not a steal I don’t know what it is.

Anyway, those are two absolutely banging examples of the perfect cars to buy if you’re looking for a good deal. Undoubtedly, there are many many more out there. Perhaps you know something the rest of us don’t know! Share the knowledge with us, people!
