The Rolling Stones famously sang, you can't always get what you want, and what Porsche originally wanted was to call their six-cylinder car the 901. Peugeot but a stop to that, and hence we gained the venerated 911. We'll have to see if the price of today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe 911 has you singing that Stones' song to its seller. Take a look at that car up there. Now take a look at yesterday's Dodge Diplomat. Now the Porsche, now the Dodge. Porsche, Dodge. Porsche-Dodge-Porsche-Dodge-Porsche-Dodge-Porsche-Dodge-Porsche-Dodge... Okay, here's what's interesting; that Porsche's design goes all the way back to 1964 - earlier if you consider its two-plus years of development - and it still looks ages younger than grandpa D, even though it's only a year fresher. Of course looks aren't everything - it's money that talks, and at less than two grand, that Diplomat looked pretty good to 63% of you. Do you remember back when you were a kid in school? Do you also remember that after about the … [Read more...] about For $39,995, Dial 911

The seller of today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe Puma says he’s just too big for the small car. Let’s see if the big dog’s price for this little Brazilian cat might still be just right. Okay I get it, you all thought yesterday’s Faux-rrari 19993 Chevy C/K Pickup was ugly as sin. You can stop now with the kill it with fire memes and eyes-getting-plucked-out gifs. Opinion noted. Beauty, or the lack thereof, apparently has a financial component as well. I guess that’s not that surprising seeing just how poor-fitting most clothes from Walmart typically are, and in this case the fuglies resulted in a massive 86% Crack Pipe loss. Okay, if aesthetics are your cup of tea then consider, if you will, the beautiful bodies of Brazil. No, I don’t mean the chiseled physiques in skimpy swimwear that typically covers the country’s miles of white sand beaches, I mean those like this 1981 Puma GTI coupé. Puma was a small Brazilian car manufacturer … [Read more...] about For $6,250, Could This 1981 Puma GTI Be The Cat’s Meow?
Joe has been hooning around in front-wheel drive cars for awhile and currently drives the excellent Fiesta ST (RIP FiST). He would like to make a change and get something that sends power to the rear wheels or all four of them. What car should he buy? (Welcome back to What Car Should You Buy? Where we give real people real advice about buying cars. Do you want us to help you find a car? Submit your story on our form.) Here is the scenario - Looking for the next experience. Have driven front wheel drive cars all my life and want to either go RWD or AWD with my next car. Have also fallen in love with turbocharging and the nature of boost in general. My Fiesta ST is the best car I’ve experienced outside of a Miata and I love the dynamics of a lightweight car. My big hang up with many of those cars, however, is that many of them feel cheap. It’s just not that nice of a place to be and a feel for the price of a decked out model I could do better with interiors. I want it to … [Read more...] about I’m Ready To Move On From Front-Wheel Drive! What Car Should I Buy?
With twin turbos and tuner mods, today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe 911 should be a ball to drive - a Gemballa in fact. Will it’s price also prove likewise? Have you ever found a cool car in a barn? Yeah, me neither, just chickens and cow pies. The seller of yesterday’s 1964 Rambler Classic 660 however, is of another breed; those who find cars in barns and then try and sell them. He shouldn’t have much trouble doing so with that Rambler as it took a substantial 88% Nice Price win for its four-grand asking. As we discussed yesterday the Rambler was a salt of the earth, middle of the road, don’t rock the boat American family sedan for American families that knew which side their bread was buttered. Or something like that. But what if you were not in the family way? What if instead you were more of a swinging single seeking conquests both on the road and in the bars, what kind of car would YOU want to drive, hustler? The 996 edition of Porsche’s … [Read more...] about Would You Go $59,950 For This 2000 Gemballa Porsche 911?
My dog Virginia made friends with a lot of people in my neighborhood, and one of Virginia's regular visitors was Lenny Citrano, whom some of you may recognize as that guy who usually plays a mafia goon in movies and TV shows. Lenny also owns a beautiful Porsche 356 SC, and he let me drive it. I had no idea this lovely car was tucked away just a few houses down from me, and that's probably a good thing, since by now Lenny would likely have taken out a restraining order against me. Porsche 356s have always held a special interest to me, as I'm sure they do for many lifelong Beetle-lovers. The Porsche 356-Beetle relationship is a fascinating one I think, and I'm not sure if there's really anything quite like it in all of motoring. The 356 is clearly descended from the Beetle — its fundamental mechanical design is the same as the Beetle, the design fits into the same general visual vocabulary, and it sounds, smells, and just feels right to someone used to a Beetle. With one big … [Read more...] about 1964 Porsche 356 SC: The
