This little beast was first built in 2000, and the owner supposedly COMPLETELY (his or her caps, not mine) rebuilt it in 2013. Per the seller, the suspension, steering, brakes, differential & axles all came from a Mazda Miata originally, but the seller reworked the suspension; so it’s not clear how much Miata is left. This is claimed to be an adult go-kart and we can see how it could be lots of fun, but we’d sure like to know how it handles, given the unknown suspension.

Here we have a very rare (in the US, especially) little wagon, which once served as a sensible family car in postwar Germany and was part of the group that would eventually become Audi. Continue reading DKW F94U Sonderklasse Universal
Do you want a unique family hauler without too much cargo space? How about an Olds Eighty-Eight with six doors? Sure, it probably hauled families to funerals, but at least it’s not an actual hearse. As a bonus, this sale includes a 1970s child seat/death trap! Continue reading Six-Door 1979 Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight Armbruster Stageway Limo
The Panther platform had a very long life, mostly underneath taxis, police cars and grandparental transport. These offered rear-wheel drive and periodically attracted enthusiasts off and on over the years, with the Mercury Marauder being the ultimate factory iteration. One thing all factory versions had in common, however, was an automatic transmission. That’s been corrected in this example!
Replica implies a certain amount of accuracy in reproduction; so perhaps we’ll consider this more of a tribute. Either way, someone took a 1964 Ford pickup and made something that looks somewhat like a 1910s-era racer. Continue reading Homebrew 1913 Stutz “Replica”
Any Opel Manta is an oddball these days, but the Luxus luxury edition gets bonus points. The downside is that this one lacks a clutch pedal.
It’s a bit difficult to classify this oddball, but roadster isn’t too far off. We see sand rail styling influences, but no off-road capability. Continue reading Custom VW One-Seat Roadster
The pictures speak volume here, but we do like a couple quotes from the ad:
“Custom fabricated by a Boeing airplane manufacturer ”
“With 6 wheels and three cylinders it’s not the fastest car in the world. Steep grades you have to drop into third at around 40-50mph”
“Leaks oil typical for a 91′” Continue reading Rolling Weenie: Six-Wheeled 1991 Geo Metro Stretch
Yes, indeed, this is a 1960 Lincoln Continental with a full camper on the back. Supposedly, some Ford truck parts might have been used underneath, but the seller isn’t sure. We just know it’s got massive potential and it has a toilet. Continue reading Lamper or Contamper? 1960 Lincoln Continental Camper Conversion
We love old Chevy Blazers, so we briefly shed a tear when we find one has been sacrificed; but it’s a relief when the end result is awesomely odd. In this case, someone decided a 1962 Studebaker Lark two-door post would make a good off-roader. We tend to agree.
