Finally For Sale, The 86 Testarossa I Spotted Last Year (Craigslist)

While browsing Craigslist for Corvettes under $12,000 (there are quite a few C5’s) I happened to stumble across an old acquaintance.  It’s the oddball Testarossa inspired Corvette (or maybe Pontiac Grand Am?) that I spotted rolling around the streets about a year ago.  I never thought I would see it again, but here it is in all of it’s glory for only $5500.  If you’re looking to get into the Ferrari game this is a cheap start.

1991 Geo Shitstorm GSi Lowrider (Craigslist)

The Geo Storm is clearly the shit end of the 2nd generation Isuzu Impulse stick, and now you can have one of your own.  This one is special though, it’s the perfect low and slow lowrider.  The trunk is literally filled with hydraulic pumps to handle all of the low, and the swapped 1.8L takes care of the slow.

1971 Chevrolet Corvette Hatchback Freakshow

I spotted this at the Russo and Steele auction, the ‘still for sale’ tags indicates that either nobody wanted it or it didn’t meet the reserve price.

These Corvettes were ridiculously swoopy and cartoon-like to begin with, this is just over the top. If there were a Scooby Doo episode where they befriended some wild gothabilly kids, this is what they would drive, only with landau bars on the sides (click the link at the bottom for the full effect).

Moby Dick (Head)

If you live in North Phoenix, you’ve probably seen the guy in the Mustang with the chrome vinyl wrap driving around. I’ve driven past him going the opposite direction more times than I can count and was never able to get a picture of him. I used to see him when I was on my bike, when I was running, driving in the car or riding in other people’s cars, and every time I saw him, it always happened to be when I didn’t have a camera or couldn’t get my phone out of my pocket in time.

1st Gen Chevrolet S10 5th Wheel Trailer Setup

The less than pleasant GM rep at the 2012 SEMA show informed us that the LT1 name was back, again, for heritage reasons only.  That’s an acceptable answer, I guess, I don’t quite understand why but I’ll let it slide.  There are definitely better names to bring back, like, I don’t know.. the fucking Iron Duke.  If there were an american version of the hammer and sickle that’s what you would envision upon hearing its name, regardless of actual performance specs or reliability.

Also, I found this S10 5th wheel setup, which hopefully has a tired 350 under the hood.
