Thursday Twister: Sasquatch

It is Thursday the Thirteenth, so let's keep the scary stuff going with this next Thursday Twister feature.  The  Thursday Twister (TM) is a quiz with a twist, and today the twist is you need to pick your favorite car from this list of wrecks.


Don't just pick your favorite car, but also explain how you will restore it -- totally stock, rat rod, patina princess, or customized with a warp drive from a Constitution-class cruiser. Find this list of cars offered for various prices in Houston, TX via craigslist. Tip from Zach Z.

What would you drive? Comments below.

  1. I'd start with one that has most of its sheet metal intact - the Karmann Ghia or Grand Torino look like the best candidates there. I'm kind of thinking an air cooled Porsche engine in the Karmann Ghia would be very entertaining.

  2. I choose the Panel Van. I'll restore it to a camper and then drive around the country instagramming my life as a hipster nomad camper but I'll add a twist: I'll also open packages and eat food on YouTube in my camper panel van, get a billion followers, and become an internet celebrity.

    Just kidding. I have dignity.

    1. Hey, I don't talk about you.

    1. Really...........the humidity in Houston is a petri dish for still undiscovered diseases that cling to sheet metal. What a shame

  4. I would get a tetanus shot.

    ReplyDelete
  5. last one - the 4-car trailer - because it's obviously in working condition - like the old puzzler about the town with two barbers

    ReplyDelete
  6. It's gotta be the 67 mustang fastback, well..seller has the back half of the car so a crazy mustang trike seems logical. We always see these trikes for sale but wouldn't it be fun to be the guy that actually built one? Or maybe not
