Coffee Brake: In case you've been living under a
rock pile of used r-compound slicks, you might have heard about the EPA's proposed regulation of emissions from racecars. Of course this caused an uproar from everyone including Jalopnik, Autoblog, FoxNews, and so on...but the guys at SEMA mobilized their legion of followers to quickly reach the 100,000 signatures needed for an official response from the White House.
In the late 1980s Nissan released a series of retro-styled vehicles for the Japanese market built on what is called the Pike platform with design by Naoki Sakai who was noted for bringing retro styling to Olympus brand cameras. The limited production retro-minis included Be-1, K10-Micra, Pao, Figaro and snail styled S-Cargo. Regrettably, Nissan did not export any of these little oddballs into the USA, but you can find examples that have migrated here over the years. Find this 1989 Nissan Pao offered for $10,000 in NYC via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.
You know how I love to advertisements with bad photos and limited details of a typical craigslist posting? Yeah. Well, today I'm not going to do that with this next feature...is it because I'm feeling charitable? Nope. It is because this next car is potentially a huge bargain for what you get. Find this 1971 Toyota Corona Mk II Wagon offered for $5,900 in Orange County, CA via craigslist.

The original Mazda 626 named was first applied to a front-engine rear-drive sedan/coupe in 1978.

Find this 1982 Mazda 626 Coupe here on eBay bidding for $4,050 with 2 days to go, located in Pullyaup, WA.
For this week's Thursday Twister, I am going to ask you to do a little digging on your local craigslist/autotrader/eBay classifieds. What we are looking for are projects where the owner is in over his head. Why? Because the first rule of business is that leverage is king, and if the seller is a colorblind dude who has pulled the wiring harness from his Jaguar, or anybody who has tried to pull the turbos from a 2.7T Audi without a 4-post lift...well..those guys are on the short side of the fulcrum.
This next car will cause some confusion when you tell people of your latest acquisition. I just bought a Subaru Rex. Oh nice, I had an 04 wagon, great cars but I had to replace the turbocharger twice. No, not a WRX...a Rex...like T-Rex. One of those three wheeled things? No...no, a Kei car from Japan. Chrysler made cars in Japan? The conversation will just degenerate into expletives soon thereafter, so we'll just cut it off....but that shouldn't stop you from buying this 1990 Subaru Rex offered for $3,900 in Houston, TX via craigslist. Tip from Vance.
This is Kimi Raikkonen's 2003 McLaren Mercedes-Benz MP4-15 Formula 1 Car here on eBay with starting bid of $270,000 located in North Miami Beach, FL with auction ending on Monday.
The predecessor to Ford of Europe's super cool Escort (not to be confused with the abysmal US based front-drive CE14 based Escort) was called the Anglia -- a patriotic name chosen a few months after the United Kingdom declared war on Germany in 1939. Production continued after the war and the Anglia was slowly morphed into a cool little car -- particularly good looking are 105E models (1959-1968). Find this 1967 Ford Anglia Estate with Toyota Twin-Cam Swap here on eBay bidding for $1,575 reserve-not-met with 5 days to go located in Los Angeles, CA.

The AMC "flying fishbowl" Pacer was produced at the height of the disco era (1975-1980) and slotted between the Gremlin and the Matador in AMC's lineup. It was an oddly shaped car when released, the passenger compartment was shoved forward, the wheels were located at the ends of the car with minimal overhang, and let's not forget about the huge rear glass sections. However, if you had a spare Cadillac V8 sitting around, it seems like a logical car for a sleeper. Find this 1978 AMC Pacer 500cid V8 offered for $6,000 in Louisville, KY. Tip from Fueltruck.
