Dat Patina: 1976 BMW 2002

The BMW 2002 is on our short list of cars to buy now before they make the jump from classic junk to collectable junk.  Especially keep an eye out for patina'd versions that have been grounded to the ground...like this 1976 BMW 2002 offered for $5,999 in Burlington, MA via craigslist. Tip from Art C.



Thursday Twister: The Best Way To Spend A Weekend

For this week's Thursday Twister, I'm going to share this link of a charity auction here on eBay (bidding for $530 with 1 day to go) for a 2-day drifting class with 1 night RV camping (for 2 guests) and ask -- what is the best way to spend a weekend for a car lover?


Fjord 5.0: 1983 Volvo 245 GL Wagon

The Volvo 200-series was penned with a straight edge and forged with hammers -- and it is equally slow, hip, and cool in 2-door, 4-door, or 5-door wagon...except that the wagon is the best for shoving a Ford V8 up front.  Find this 1983 Volvo 245 GL Wagon with Ford V8 offered for $4,321 in Norfolk, VA via craigslist.  From Cory.

Oil Burner: 1984 Ford Tempo Diesel Manual

Mention the Ford Tempo around the average car guy and he will either shrug his shoulders in frustration or start to get those uncontrollable itches -- you know, the kind you get when you see someone trying to jump start an electric car.  But this next Tempo has a compression ignited surprise under the hood that'll make you feel pins and needles like you've never felt before.  Find this 1984 Ford Tempo offered for $6,000 in Knoxville, TN via craigslist. Tip from PB.



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.

Drive Classy: 1980 BMW 528 E12

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. Gradually, your vision returns to normal you see it...yes...it is a BMW 5-series and it probably costs less than your crapbox.  Time to upgrade your daily driver.  Find this 1980 BMW 528 E12 bidding for $3,051 reserve-not-met here on eBay with 1 day to go, located in San Bernardino, CA.

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.



What Am I? Another Hobo Nickel In The Jukebox

I can't say this enough -- you guys are amazing when it comes to identifying vehicles from small, blurry, cropped photos. It isn't the same guy (or gal) who gets each one, but it seems that each audience member has his own expertise and gets the chance to shine. Now it's your turn. What am I?



Cylinders Half Full: 1991 Ford Mustang LX
