Pre-4Runner: 1981 Toyota Trekker

Before Toyota built the 4Runner, there was a small dealership in Wisconsin (Jack Safro in Brookfield) that took about 1500 of the basic Toyota HiLux trucks from 1981-1983 and sent them to Winnebego for a camper shell makeover -- the result was something called the Trekker that was so impressive to the Toyota brass that the concept was turned into the 4Runner. Find this 1981 Toyota Trekker offered for $9995 outside of Milwaukee, WI via craigslist.

Fast And Furious 17; Berlin Door Ding: 1988 Porsche 944 2JZ

The number of vehicles with swapped small block Chevy V8s is comical, to the point that they aren't really even that "special" anymore, but it makes sense because Chevy build a billion of their small blocks in every manner of vehicle from the Corvette to airport tugs.  But what is even funnier is that Toyota's 2JZ seems to be finding its way into every manner of vehicle, and while they didn't really build that many of the hot 2JZ-GTE versions (only built for the Supra Turbo and Japan only Aristo), but they did print out the standard 2JZ-GE version by the bucket load. Anyway, find this 1988 Porsche 944 2JZ offered for $12,900 in Homestead, FL via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!

Born in Quebec: 2002 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am NHRA Edition

Almost Christmas: 1971 Mercury Comet GT

The V12 Days of XMas: 1985 Jaguar XJS

The Jaguar V12 engine was launched in 1971 for the E-Type road car, but the design was originally created for the mad XJ13 LeMans racer.  A few years later, the engine was stuffed into the Malcolm Sayer/Doug Thorpe designed XJS...and MANY years later you can get one for the price of a years worth of Starbucks lattes.  Find this 1985 Jaguar XJS offered for $1500 in SF Bay Area, CA via craigslist.

Twisted or Twister? 1971 Porsche 911 Olds V8

The original Porsche 911 has seen incredible price appreciation in the past decade, to the point that you've got to own a software company or be a rap star to own one of these things and the worst part is that even the cleanest museum quality version is dangerously slow in the modern world of minivans that hit 60 mph in 5 seconds and family sedans with 700 horsepower.  But you can fix that with a simple injection of V8 power from an Oldsmobile Toronado.  Find this 1971 Porsche 911 Olds V8 offered for $12,000 in Long Beach, CA via craigslist. Tip from Lars.
