It’s only about $3-4k of stuff for a car that’s only worth about $2500.
Went to look at that Cooper S today. It was mechanically perfect, and cosemetically great. One notable exception though. Rear tail lights are showing a bit of rust which means the buckets are fubar. I really liked the car otherwise though.
Is Disney actually dumb enough to reveal Rey as a Skywalker in the title of Episode IX? Yes, this is the official title revealed today.
WMWRE33454TD85357. Thanks, photo of the car in question for your time.
But this 2004 Mini makes me feel all tingly. 2004, 87,000 miles, clean, clearly well cared for, and local. $5,200.
Crossed 160k on my way home from work. It’s highly unlikely I will see 170k with this car with the issues it is developing so that will get to be the next owners first major milestone. If it wasn’t for the blown synchro, dying input shaft bearing, (small) rust spots on almost every body panel, and the countless rubber…
New performance edition of the MK8 FiST. It has a bunch of upgrades over a standard ST but I’m more interested in this awesome orange. Why did they have to take the FiST away from us?
How ‘bout no?
Found on my local Craigslist: A 1995 Maxima pretending to be both an R33 Skyline and a S15 Silvia at the same time. I have to admit, its actually done really well, just needs a new hood to fill the gap at the front.
Tim O’Neil’s VW Rallye Golf. Homologation special version of the Golf with synchro 4wd and a supercharged version of the 8 valve engine. 5000 were made, none of which were officially imported to the US for sale. Tim raced these back in the late 80s and early 90s. No idea where he found one this clean.
Found on Autotrader near me: a 2014 Fiesta ST in a familiar place. I’m not actually sure if it belongs to Tim or someone else who works at the school but it makes a better story to just call it Tim’s. Regardless it does look like it has been well cared for and maintained and all the paperwork is present with the car,…
2006 Mini Cooper S John Cooper Works GP, better known as the GP1. One of only 415 imported to the states. $17.5k seems a tad high to me but when only a handful come up for sale each year it’s hard to really value these. It’s right near my Aunt too!
It’s not a good color but it’s a clean Justy in VT! I would have thought this would have turned orange within a month of being here.
This popped up in my Google Now feed and I really wish it hadn’t. Random EV site wanking to a fan render of an ugly truck with Tesla badges.
The WTF level rises the longer you look at it.
I don't know how this happened or how it made it through quality but someone messed up.
This is the most appealing thing fitting that description on my local Craigslist right now. 2009 Clubman JCW. It wouldn’t be as fun as a BRZ at an autocross (and would probably require the mother of all rear sway bars to get it to handle like my Cooper at autocrosses) but it would be more comfortable on the street.…
2017 BRZ Limited with Performance Pack, 1,039 miles, $23,958. It appears to have been some kind of display car/tester for Brattleboro Subaru for 1,025 miles but the free Carfax on autotrader says it’s clean. Does belonging to a dealer for 1k miles really knock ~2k off the value of a car? I’m not seeing a mark on it…
Anybody else have buddies that ride in their car? This little guy was $10 the other day and being a total nerd I couldn’t resist. He joins my plush R2D2 who lives in my cupholder.
After a season and a half of autocross, 2 seasons of Ice Time Trial, 2 track days, 1 autocross win, 3 ITT wins, and an ITT Championship the Mini wore #70 for the final time today. It was a fun autocrosser but the Ice was where it really shined. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t slightly teared up driving off the ice…
