Find of the Day: 1982 Fiat X1/9

It’s not everyday one of these pop up for sale, especially in this condition. This 1982 Fiat X1/9 is in excellent shape and appears to have been well taken care of. 1982 was the final year for the X1/9 being produced by Fiat before production switched over to Bertone. As far as small mid-engine carsContinue reading “Find of the Day: 1982 Fiat X1/9”

Find of the Day: 1993 Volvo 244

The Volvo 200 Series refused to quit and conform. It lasted in production for two decades, keeping true to its blocky rear-wheel drive origins. Many vehicles last five to seven years tops before a new generation is released, but not the stubborn 200 Series. It would not go quietly into the night. But as hardContinue reading “Find of the Day: 1993 Volvo 244”

Friday Fun – Choices: Miata Alternatives

It has been a while, but welcome back to Choices. During this segment’s hiatus, we have evolved and simplified the series. We now pit three or four seemingly similar cars against one another and ask you a simple question. Which one would you theoretically keep as your favourite, and which one do you despise enoughContinue reading “Friday Fun – Choices: Miata Alternatives”

Find of the Day – 1983 Nissan Stanza

Are you a fan of retro Japanese compact cars? Well, have we found a fantastic example for you – a 1983 Nissan Stanza. Showing less than 73,000 km on the odometer, the car is in fantastic shape inside and out. Bonus points for still rocking the stock cassette tape deck. But for me, it areContinue reading “Find of the Day – 1983 Nissan Stanza”

Find of the Day – 1985 Dodge 600 ES Convertible

Look up 1980s Posh in the dictionary and I think a picture of this car would be there. This 1985 Dodge 600 ES Convertible finished in white with a saddle brown interior is all ’80s class. Despite a moderate amount of kilometers driven, the car is still in fantastic shape inside and out (although itContinue reading “Find of the Day – 1985 Dodge 600 ES Convertible”

Find of the Day – 1984 Toyota Celica GT

It’s hard to believe that this 1984 Toyota Celica GT has over 235,000 km on the odometer. Look at it – it’s pristine. Rarely does a nearly 40-year old car survive this long without the body rusting out and the seats tearing apart, but here lies the exception. Would a manual transmission make this carContinue reading “Find of the Day – 1984 Toyota Celica GT”

Friday Fun – Classic Car EV Conversion

Today’s Friday Fun is all about mixing old with new. Our question is, what classic car would you love to transform into a modern EV restro-rod. Yes, take out that old, unreliable anchor of an engine and replace it with a torque-filled electric motor. Anything goes; the sky is the limit. For me, I wouldContinue reading “Friday Fun – Classic Car EV Conversion”

Find of the Day – 1992 Ford F-150 Nite Edition

Remember Ford’s short-lived Nite Edition from 1991 to 1992? No, well, we understand if you don’t. It wasn’t much more than an appearance package, but it did ooze ’90s swagger. Just look at the graphics on that logo. What we have here is a 1992 Ford F-150 Nite Edition in good condition considering its ageContinue reading “Find of the Day – 1992 Ford F-150 Nite Edition”

Friday Fun – Three Car Defunct Dream Garage

Today’s task is simple. We’re going to rewind things back a bit and once again assemble a three-vehicle fantasy garage of your choosing, while following these two simple rules: All vehicles must be from defunct manufacturers no longer producing automobiles. You cannot select the same manufacturer twice. My Choices 1970 Plymouth Superbird I’ve always hadContinue reading “Friday Fun – Three Car Defunct Dream Garage”
