Run Away? 1987 Chevrolet Sprint Turbo

You have 2 legs. It has 3 cylinders. Can you outrun it? Oh, wait, it has a turbo. You can't. Should you buy it? Let's see... Have a look at this 1987 Chevrolet Sprint Turbo on San Francisco Craigslist for $3000, which is only $1000 per cylinder, if that's how you roll. Tip and words from a jet-lagged Kaibeezy.

See the little slot there? Could be the world's smallest hood scoop. Or you could insert a credit card in there. See the little arrow? There. Chip card? Would it slow down? Like a chip card transaction? Never mind.

Where were you in 1987? Were you dreaming of this car? Poster on the wall next to the Countach and Farrah? Probably not, since those were more of a 70s thing. Did anyone ever dream of this car? It's very red. And small. 70 tiny horses to move 1700 lbs gets you 0-60 in 8.7. If you weigh what you weighed in 1987 that might work OK.

If the colors only go from red to yellow, is it a rainbow?

 So many fantastic colors and other things. Those wheels. What's like them? Shared parts bin with Cuisinart?

  1. Wonder if he'd trade me for my electric bicycle. Mines faster and easier to pick up chicks

  2. I wonder just how much boost you could cram into that little plant...
