5k: Joker Approved: 1929 Gazelle Mercedes SSK Kit Car

Joker here, my next order of business is to add a touch of class on this site and stop posting all those crappy BMWs, douchey Alfas, miserably slow Volvos and prick-filled Porsches.  With that out of the way, I'm still a fan of nice looking classic cars, but prefer cheaper versions.  Furthermore, on a meager assistant evil-doer salary you aren't going to be able to afford a real pre-war Mercedes, so why not pick up the next best thing: a Gazelle kit car- nobody but a real stick-in-the-mud car aficionado is going to know this is a kit car and if you work for the Joker, I'll give free reign to run any one of those people over.  Anyway, find this 1929 Gazelle Mercedes SSK Kit Car for sale in Orange, CA for $4,000 via craigslist.


The Gazelle was built by Fiberfab and used late '70s Mustang II running gear and 2.3 liter inline4 cylinder Pinto engine to push it around.  Sure, it doesn't have nearly the street presence of a real Mercedes SSK, but at 1/2000th the cost (the remaining 10 original SSKs sell in the $7 million range) it offers a miniature Cruella de Ville experience at part time goon affordability.  See a better cheap "wanna-be" expensive car for the Joker's "Joke's On You" collection? email the Joker here: tips@dailyturismo.com
