Celebrate the potential return of Peugeot and/or Citroen to the US market with an oddball, French military Peugeot product, which should also be a thoroughly capable off-roader. Continue reading Super Rare (in US) Peugeot P4
Rat Rod seems to be very loosely defined, these days, and this is an example. Most of this was once a GMC Sonoma/S15, but there’s not much left and a V8 has been shoved into it. The builder obviously likes chains (well, it is from a custom bike shop) and has done some cool little touches, but we’re not sure about the sum of the parts. Continue reading GMC Sonoma Turned Psuedo-Rat-Rod
Anyone who knows 80s cars knows Chevy never made a convertible S10 Blazer, so this is a custom job, but it does look like it was meant to be. The V8 swap solves the extreme slowness problem these had, but we worry that the lack of a proper top means you’re screwed if you take more than one friend with you and it starts to rain. Continue reading Open-Top S10 Blazer with SBC Swap!
From the microcar files, we have this Zoe Zipper, which was a rebadged Mitsuoka Motors BUBU 501. This little three-wheeler was supposedly capably of 45 miles per hour, but we imagine that’s terrifying. Regardless, we love it! Continue reading Zoe Zipper Three Wheeler
We have featured Renault Alliances before, but never two as part of one sale. Today’s feature includes a Motor Trend Car of the Year Edition and a GTA parts car. Why is the more desirable car the parts car? One word: rust.
We’ve featured our share of van to truck conversions, but haven’t previously encountered one based on the creatively named 1980s “Toyota Van.” This seems like a winning combination of weirdness and reliability.
We don’t think it gets much cooler than this build. Sure, this wagon gave up is all-wheel drive; but it gained a lot in performance and looks.
Here we have an old-school trike running a Ford 302 (4.9L) V8 and C4 three-speed automatic trans. The seller provides shockingly little info,but does point out that it has a crushed velvet interior. What else do you really need to know? Continue reading Gold Dust V8-Powered Trike
We guess this is a Mexico specification not offered in the US: a 1983 Ford Fairmont with a floor-mounted, three-speed manual transmission!
Here we have an interesting idea. The owner apparently had T-bucket hot rods before and noted (correctly) that they’re not really long-distance cars. We don’t know how, but he ended up with a 1986 Corvette and proceeded to remove most of the body panels, then construct a Model T-type “trunk” and add an old school radiator frame. The result sorta-kinda resembles a hot rod, but maintains Corvette running gear and suspension; so it theoretically is perfectly driveable for the long haul, assuming the lack of a top doesn’t bother you.
