5 Speed Swap: 1989 BMW 325iX

July 21, 2016 bmw, awd, E30

This 1989 BMW 325iX started out with an automatic transmission in Dayton, Ohio and currently sports a 5 speed in Los Angeles. Even though it has accumulated 190k miles in the intervening years, it still looks excellent. A good deal of recent service, including the 5 speed swap and a suspension only adds to the appeal.

Barn Find Wagon: 1956 Willys

June 25, 2016 willys, wagon, 4x4

After sitting idle for 10 years, the seller of this Willys Wagon has decided to offer it for sale. Described as running when parked, this wagon looks straight and rust free and makes us (optimistically) think it wouldn't take too much to get it back on the road.

Aloha Audi - 1987 Audi 4000CS Quattro

March 30, 2017 audi, 4000, quattro

Who knew they had Audis in Hawaii? This one owner 4000CS was initially put into service in Minneapolis where the Quattro system would have been the state of the art in Minnesota snow fighting technology. After 30,000 miles, the Audi (and we assume the original owner) moved to the Maui where the AWD could work its magic on some jungle trails.

Almost Practical: 1963 Baja Bug

January 19, 2016 vw, baja, bug

We've been thinking a vintage Beetle might be a good placeholder in our garage while we wait for the Porsche bubble to burst. We'd love to see this thing passing SUVs spinning their summer tires on the PA snow.

1995 Fresh: Range Rover Classic

March 01, 2016 range rover, 4x4

It's hard to argue with the attention to detail that went into restoring this 1995 Range Rover Classic. New paint and upholstery look showroom new, but the work that has gone into this SUV goes way beyond the surface. Swapping a refreshed 4.2L engine into this SWB is a move we've never seen but we appreciate the effort. This thing looks like it just rolled out of the showroom in 1995, so crank up the Hootie and the Blowfish and take a trip back in time.

50 Horsepower & 22K miles: 1979 Volkswagen Rabbit

March 17, 2016 vw, rabbit, diesel

Stored from 1983 until 2015, when it was purchased at an auction in Minnesota, this diesel 1979 Volkswagen Rabbit has since put on another 8,000 miles. These Western PA-bred rabbits were never the fastest, but this might be the lowest mileage example still in the wild.

Get a Car That Can Do Both: 2000 Porsche C4

October 09, 2016 porsche, 911, awd

With the weather turning cooler and leaves starting to fall, our fancy as of late has tended towards trucks and "traditional" AWD powerhouses. As one may expect in Northeastern climates, the prices on those vehicles go up accordingly as the fall turns into winter. The smart bet financially is to find "summer" cars that are about to be mothballed for the winter and whose owners may be tempted to part for them at a less-than-premium price. This 911 has the makings of a "summer" car, but its Michigan roots are hiding some winter prowess.
