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”

Are you a fan of mundane ’80s compact coupes? Well, have we found a car for you. Behold this 1986 Dodge Charger with the base 2.2-liter engine and a manual transmission. Showing just 25,333 km (15741 mi) on the odometer, this car is in amazing condition for something now 35 years old. The car isContinue reading “Find of the Day – Low Mileage 1986 Dodge Charger”

Find of the Day – 1987 Dodge Raider

Hey, remember these? You can be excused if you don’t. The Dodge Raider was a rebadged Mitsubishi Montero sold for a few years at the end of the 1980s. It was a three-door SUV powered by a 2.6-liter four-cylinder engine. For sale here is a 1987 example that appears to have been used the wayContinue reading “Find of the Day – 1987 Dodge Raider”

Winged Car Wednesday – Ford Sierra RS Cosworth

From 1986 until 1989 Ford UK made a special version of the brand’s mid-size Sierra, called the RS Cosworth. As the name implies, Cosworth produced engines for these special edition lift-backs and sedans – a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that made between 204 hp and 224 hp depending on the year and trim level. The mostContinue reading “Winged Car Wednesday – Ford Sierra RS Cosworth”

Irrational Love – Pontiac Fiero

When I first starting really appreciating cars, the Fiero was the butt end of jokes.  It was the early 1990s and the Fiero’s sullied reputation was still fresh in many people’s minds. Despite selling over 370,000 examples in a five-year run, highly publicized issues that plagued the early models scared buyers away. I didn’t fullyContinue reading “Irrational Love – Pontiac Fiero”

Find of the Day – LeBaron Woodie Wagon

Wood paneling ruled. I think it’s high-time for it to come back in style. You know, one of those what’s old is new again things. Just look at how nice it is on this 1982 Chrysler LeBaron Town and Country. With only 50,000 km, this wagon has only averaged 1,315 km a year. The exteriorContinue reading “Find of the Day – LeBaron Woodie Wagon”
