Rough Start: Does A Three-Pedal Plymouth Volaré Sound Like A Neat Parts Hauler?

Let’s be clear off of the bat: this not one of MY weird Mopar finds. How can you tell? It’s a Plymouth Volaré. Oddly enough, even though it’s the genesis for the Imperial and most...

Rough Start: How About A Two-For-One Special On Mercury Cougars For A Winter Project?

Wake up and smell the burning leaves and pumpkin spice: autumn is closing in fast, and especially for those gearheads who live in climates that are due for some snow sooner than later, now is the...

Too Clean: This 1976 Jeep Cherokee Is Pure SUV – Four-Wheel-Drive And Three Pedals!

If you could use a time machine to show the designers at Kaiser-Jeep, GM, Ford, Chrysler, AMC and International just what the sport-utility vehicles of the 1960s and early 1970s would become, would...

Rough Start: This Suicide-Door Thunderbird Could Be Your Ratty Muscle Car! It’s Even Got Fuel Injection!

The fifth-generation Ford Thunderbird isn’t a loved car. Ok, let’s not sugarcoat this: it’s probably the most ignored version of the T-bird. Even the big-bumper twin to the Lincoln...

This 1983 Dodge Ram D150 Pickup Project Is Packing A Sleeper Secret: 512ci Of Mopar V8 Heat!

Unless you’ve been sleeping under a rock, it’s no secret that vintage trucks are in right now. Cool old trucks that are built for speed are all over the place these days, and ones like...

It Is Wagon Wednesday And This Ultra Rare 2-Door 1965 Chevelle Station Wagon Has Earned Its Spot

Only 653 of these 2-Door Chevelle Station Wagons were built in 1965 according to the seller. That makes this sucker even rarer than hens teeth. And because it is so nicely built, we are actually a...

Rough Start: This 1969 Ford Torino Is The Budget Musclecar Of Someone’s Dreams!

The other night I got to do a rare thing: interact with a reader not through the forum, or Facebook, or in person…but rather as we were being shot at mercilessly by a ten year old with a major...

This 1990 Lada Niva 1600 Is Soviet 4-Wheel Drive Hatchback Greatness

So describing this as a hot hatch might be a stretch, and it is also NOT all wheel drive, but we sure think it would be a riot to own and drive this Lada Niva 1600 with just a few mods. Unlike all...

Rough Start: Hit The Trails With A Prepared 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee Crawler!

Part of the fun of the Rough Start series is trying to work practicality into a project vehicle hunt. It has to be useful, because for a $5,000 budget, chances are good that this is going to be the...

Rough Start: This 1968 Oldsmobile Delmont 88 Is Perfect! Don’t Change A Thing!

When I’m hunting through Craigslist, especially when I’m on a cheap-car hunt, I tend to do something: as I study a potential victim project car, I look to see what I would change. Is the...

Here Is Our Dream Cruiser Jet Boat For The River This Weekend

Since we’re on a Jet Boat kick this week, we decided to roll with one that we think is the ultimate cruiser and party boat. We’ll admit, a pontoon boat makes a REALLY good play for the...

We Want To Be Driving This Around For Labor Day On The River…Big Block, Tunnel Ram, Metal Flake, And A Jet!

Out west, going to the river means Havasu. But where in particular depends on the kind of boat you have. If you have an outboard, v-drive, or traditional inboard outboard, then you are most likely...

Rough Start: A One-Year-Only 1974 Camaro Up For Grabs Cheap! Get The Catalog Ready!

Sometimes, all you need for a perfect Craigslist score is the seller’s capriciousness. The prize up for grabs used to be what they wanted…until they saw something they wanted just a...

Turn-Key Rocket: This Drag-Prepared 2002 Saturn SC2 Is Built To Run Tens!

Ok, yesterday’s foray into the world of Saturn automobiles was pushing an envelope, one the size of a freaking Post Office. I knew that. But I honestly like early Saturns, before they became...
