Two Tone: 1967 Saab 95 Wagon

The Saab 95 (not to be confused with the much later Saab 9-5) was a two door station wagon that combined Saab's penchant for funkiness with a 7 passenger layout. Of course, you couldn't get it with a normal engine; the only options were a 2-stroke 3-cylinder or a V4. This car comes with the latter. Find this 1967 Saab 95 offered for $7300 in Highlands Ranch, CA via Craigslist.  Tip from Zach.

Picture this: You are cruising down the road in some kind of bland econorollabox that you picked up at a local used car lot from a sweaty guy named Sal, when out of nowhere you are blinded by majestic burst of resplendent silver.  Bright.  So Bright. Fireflies dance before your eyes and a striking centaur with a shimmering golden mane winks in your general direction before boarding the Millennium Falcon and heading off into hyperspace.

When Did These Get Cheap? 2008 BMW M3 E90

BMW ditched their traditional inline-6 when they introduced the 4th generation of BMW's M3 -- code named the E90 (sedan) and E92 (coupe).  The purists might have missed the silky smooth balanced BMW 6-cylinder, but the new V8 put out more torque and horsepower than the outgoing model...and the best part is that they re-introduced a 4-door version. The only question I have is...when did the E90 M3 become affordable? Find this 2008 BMW M3 offered for $17,900 in SF Bay Area, CA via craigslist.
