Horrorods: Fiero vs Jeep vs Civic

In preparation for Halloween, I present this next Horrorod feature with words and tips from Matt C. What could be scarier than a sub-$1000 V12 Jaguar? How about taking over a project where somebody else threw a random pile of parts together and didn't quite get it finished? Here's a trio of sketchy Frankenstein builds!

First up, we have a Fiero that got a supercharged 3800 swapped into... and now it only runs on four cylinders. Plus, there's booger welds that well approximate the way the monster was stitched together. Find this 1986 Pontiac Fiero offered for $1500 in Atlanta, GA via craigslist.

Next, we have a rusty Jeepster station wagon body on an S10 frame with no engine or transmission. Find this 1951 Willys Jeep on a Chevy S-10 platform offered for $3250 Carrollton, GA via craigslist.

Lastly, we have a fifth generation Civic with a K series swap where everything looks OK - but from the sparse description, are there any malfunction monsters hiding in there that we don't know about? Find this 1995 Honda Civic offered for $6,500 in Decatur, GA via craigslist.
