Thursday Twister: Oddball

For this week's Thursday Twister the task is simple -- find the best oddball car for sale on your local craigslist, eBay, autotrader or whatever.  The crazier the better...


I will kick things off with this 1996 Mercury Marquis "show winning" thing offered for $2,500 near Houston, TX (tip from Vance).  Yeah.  Beat that.

    Here is a fourth generation Camaro trying to look like a first generation. Badly. At a first generation Camaro price, too.

    1. Sorta reminds me of that Avanti thing that was based on the 'Mero...but better looking. I like it!

      Far from the worst example of modern center sections with older front sheet metal, but I'm pretty sure I could find a real first gen at what he's asking.

    2. That's a flower car, isn't it? Please do not post the link to the blue one. My wife would go through the ceiling if I tried to use Labor Day weekend for a fly-and-drive to get it.

    3. I love the 73, but the flower car looks butt ugly. It was built on a stretch chassis. I had a 73 Caddy that was falling apart, 8-11 mpg, but it went anywhere. Once the tranny overheated and locked up, and it leaked everywhere, but that was due to age and deteoration. But hey! it was free when my previous car died.

  5. Wow, Kaibeezy, that Cadimino is beautiful!

    Sadly, I'd never own a 70s Caddy. Breakdown nightmare (please don't ask me how I know...)

    Well, maybe...
