No wonder it is all cracked, looks like they poured it at about 1.5" thick.

Yes, I don't like the new names, but you get the green light to go or buy, red implies stop or no, everytime I have voted I have to think way to much about what should be a simple task.

Yesterday I threw out "Nice Price or No Dice" kind of late in the day, but it still gained some traction.  I'll throw it out earlier today.  And I agree, the new name isn't exactly hard to figure out, but I do have to think no about it.  And if you happen to have water cooler talks with other Jalops about this the Read more

Note to Jalopnik, if you want to change the name update the website, also, though I have no problem getting rid of NP or CP, I have to think too much way early in the morning to figure out good buy and goodbye, plus the distinction doesn’t work well if expressed verbally. Read more

Priced way to high, don't give a crap about "M-Sport" doesn't make it an M.  Maybe if this were a 2001 in pristine condition and the 3.0 liter vario cam engine without about thirty more horsepower.  As presented you can buy these all day long for well under ten, above market, goodbye.

Look to see if S after the Boxster, Boxster S goes for more, don't generally see them under $10k around here.

Crack pipe if it were a regular Boxster, but the S with the extra HP are a little more rare and desirable. You usually don’t see them this cheap (or dirty). I have a brother who maintains his cars well mechanically, but they generally look like the dog’s thrown up breakfast.  Worth checking out.  Nice Price.

The last couple years I had a line on two late 60s Spitfires, arguably the best years. They were both over half a day’s drive away, one north, one south.  Passed on both, kind of wish I would have pounced on the Blue 68.  Don't be me--pounce, they are cheap, parts are cheap and easy to find, cars are easy to work on.

Star for Saturn Astra, saw one the other day, my first thought was, hey, that is kind of a cool little car, my second was, what the hell is it? My third was Saturn Astra, huh, fuzzy memory that maybe I was aware this was a thing, they must have sold by the dozens over here.

I know I often give the thumbs down to complicated over the hill luxury cars, but this is a V-12 Jag. Vastly prefer the earlier body style, but it looks neat and tidy and said to run OK, if you are like me and have a car bucket list, “own an Italian car” “own a diesel” “own a V-12" etc. (doesn’t everybody ?!!??) this Read more

I would love to drive one, but I think that is more power and performance than I could wrap my brain and aging reflexes around.

That was great stuff, I have seen the vintage Can Am grid at Road America a few times. The cars, though certainly not tiny, are a lot smaller than they look (to me at least) in pictures. Big V8 and a small chassis. Read more

Yes, that is what we want was looking at ‘59 coupe a few years back, in hindsight should have grabbed it, all there and straight but east coast car that needed total restoration and had rust, though not terminal.

Nice price, efficient little people mover, extended warranty seals the deal.  And yes Jalops you have seen these out there, but you just don't notice them.  Good car for a spy about as bland and anonymous as they get.

I’d bet the wing floats could be ripped off and it would still float. and it would dip a wing and rip apart in the water on landing. Versus with that piper cub, if those floats come off, that plane is going down in a hurry.” Read more
