BangShifter Eddy Ruesga gets the full credit for finding and tipping us off to one of the weirdest and wildest cars we have ever seen for sale on Craigslist. It is also one of the weirdest and wildest cars that we feel as though we should be openly hating but we just can’t. There’s actually something interesting about this thing and weird mash up of German and American looks that it has. For starters we can probably all agree on the fact that this car was built in the 1980s, right? The wheels, the Ferrari style side treatment on the doors, and the color are all straight out of the Miami Vice era, plus the nose is off of a 1982 Mercedes so there’s that as well.
For whatever reason, the profile shots of the car don’t make it out to look that horrendous. In fact we’d love to get the thing to a body shop, slather it in black paint (including the wheels) and then get a look at it. We’re thinking that in some miles deep black pigment this car would not only look better but probably pretty intimidating. We don’t know much about the big block powering the creation so let’s just plan on pulling that lump out, rebuilding it with low compression pistons, aluminum heads, some good rumpity cam, and an 8-71 on it. This thing needs an 8-71 coming up through the front of it to go from the weird to the completely sublime, right?
The seller is a man of few words and is obviously letting the car do the talking here because this is the full text of the ad:
