DT Birthday Celebration, 24Hrs & 50 Cars: The List.

As we previously mentioned our upcoming birthday celebration is going to be a mad dash to write 50 features in one insane day.  Oddly enough it feels like the hard part is over because we've selected the 50 makes/models and put them in one big list...but the truth is that finding, sorting and blogging about these cars is going to take some effort.  This is where we need your help!  We are looking for sharp eyed readers to find us clean, good value, inexpensive (less than $20k, except where noted) and unique examples of the cars listed below. We want to see reader tips, seller tips, tri-tips and roadkill, so stop what you are doing and send us tips! tips@dailyturismo.com

List after the jump.

  2. Cowgirl- this one hurts because there was a great buy on a builder that closed sunday on Ebay. Here's a restomodded one that will not reach its price, but...http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1957-BUICK-CENTURY-CABALLERO-WAGON-/321162260020?pt=US_Cars_Trucks&hash=item4ac6c32e34

    Dig the seats! Those Euro GT3 seats run a couple bills if you buy them on their own.

    It's not a Bora, she's a bit over $20k, and is described as a "project"....but she runs!
