Cost as Much as 2 Beetles: 1966 Karmann Ghia Type 34

April 15, 2016 vw, ghia, type 34

Though this one is a bit outside of the price ranges we normally focus on here at Moto Roster, the Karmann Ghia Type 34 is one of our favorite designs ever. So, when one this nice comes up for sale, we're flexible on our normal limits. We've been on the hunt for a 912 and it's funny that for the same $35,000 you would spend on a nice-condition 912, you could get a different 1600cc-powered German that makes 912's look as common as Camry's.

One Liter Breadvan: 1989 VW Polo

February 28, 2016 vw, polo, hatchback

We've always liked the quirky styling of the US Fox 2 door wagons. This UK born 1989 VW Polo is a rare sight on our shores and ups the quirkiness factor on all fronts.

Semper Fi: 1955 Willys Marine

January 26, 2016 jeep, 4x4, willys

We have a bias towards FJ's when it comes to topless, vintage 4x4's, but there's something undeniably cool about category-creating archetype.

Low Mileage Super High Output: 1992 Ford SHO

April 19, 2016 ford, sho, yamaha

We're fans of taking a big motor and stuffing it into an ordinary looking car. Ford did it in the 60's by dropping a 427 into the Fairlane and 30 years later they took a different route to the same result. When it came to make the SHO, instead of looking to pure displacement, they partnered with Yamaha for a 24 valve work of art that was capable of spinning up to 8500 RPM.

Hard Miles: 1972 BMW 2002

May 31, 2016 bmw, 2002, runner

This 1972 BMW 2002 is beyond rough around the edges, but it's described in no uncertain terms as a runner. It has been kicking around eBay for a few weeks now, and we're tempted to see how flexible the seller is on price.

High Miles + Highly Documented: 1976 Porsche 911S

May 09, 2016 911, 2.7

This 1976 Porsche 911 S is pushing 200,000 miles but has the documentation to account for just about every one of them. We like the stripped down nature with no sunroof and no power windows, as well the mechanical and suspension upgrades.

E30 Oil Burner: 1986 BMW 324d

March 16, 2016 bmw, diesel, e30

Rarely seen (and never sold) in the US, this early E30 was imported from Germany and trades the much revered gas engine for a 6 cylinder diesel that was also shared by its 5-series big brother. Though this one is normally aspirated, the M21 engine also came in a turbocharged version that, among other applications, was available briefly in Lincoln Mark VII's!

Putting the W in VW: 2003 Volkswagen Passat W8

September 14, 2016 vw, w8, 6-speed

This W8 Passat would have been about the most ridiculous car in VW showrooms back in 2003 since it would be another year or so before the Phaeton came in with its big W12. With AWD, a 6-speed, and the W8 motor, the only other thing we could ask for would be the wagon body. We'll take what we can get though.

Wonder of the World: 1956 Chevy Panel Truck

March 04, 2016 chevy, panel

If you liked yesterday's Dodge Power Wagon, and are in the market for something equally difficult to drive but offering more secure cargo storage, we've got just the thing for you. This 1956 Chevy Panel Truck offers a similarly agricultural driving experience with a bit more practicality and panache.
