A What? 1945 Studebaker M29 Weasel

I can't see Tesla building self driving tanks if we went to war with North Korea, but back during "the war" most of the American industrial machine was turned into a war machine and we created things like the M29 Weasel by Studebaker.  Find this 1945 Studebaker M29 Weasel offered for $5000 in Fayetteville, AR via craigslist.

What Am I? Eyes Up Here

It is Monday morning, and time to solve the weekly What Am I? puzzle, and today we've got another hunk of metal that you need to identify.


660 Horsepower: 1975 Chevrolet Monza


The Chevrolet Monza was a small 2+2 built on Chevrolet's H-body, which was also the basis for such piles of crap like the Vega, Skylark and Starfire. It was the last of GM's rear-wheel-drive subcompacts and the end of an era for GM's rear drive crap boxes, BUT today's example has a meaty V8 under the hood.  Find this 1975 Chevrolet Monza offered for $8000 in North Branford, CT via craigslist.  From Cory.

In Too Deep: 1991 Mercedes 300E

Have you ever been so utterly fed up with a car that you write a Craigslist ad that is full of information that feels good to get off your chest, but does little to actually sell the car?  Today's seller makes the bold claim that his listing is, "the most honest ad ever." Unfortunately, his idea of honesty is a case of what the kids these days call TMI.  The iconic Mercedes W124 E-class is one of the best engineered cars to ever come out of Stuttgart, but can quickly wear out even a ASE certified mechanic who is not all that familiar with these models and their trouble points.  Find this 1991 Mercedes 300E for sale in Medford, NJ for $3,000 via craigslist.

Buy American: 1991 Dodge Stealth Twin Turbo

The Dodge Stealth was a badge engineered version of the Mitsubishi 3000GT -- imported into the USA around the same time as the Diamond Star Motors imports (Eclipse/Talon/Laser) but the Stealth and 3000GT were both built in Japan.  The only difference between the Mitsu and Dodge version were cosmetic, and personally, I like the looks of the Stealth in Twin Turbo form because of the zany mid-stop rear window wing on the Stealth...but I've been known to enjoy odd cars.  Find this 1991 Dodge Stealth Twin Turbo offered for $8,000 in Cecil, OH via craigslist.  Tip from Rock On!
