I always love listings that say "invested $X, but willing to let go for $Y, this is a steal!". You see a ton of them, but this one takes the cake. It's a 2002 Saturn SC2 2 door, mantran coupe, pushing 1.9 liters of fury:

If that's not enough, he made a webpage listing all the sweet mods:

http://www.public.iastate.edu/~raja...tfolio/car.html

A couple things I hate about that post. First, it's in Kansas City, where I live now; and second, the "car page" is an Iowa State University student page, where I went to school

Anyway, I read all the stuff he said about it, but I still don't see where all the money went. It's still got hubcaps, for christ's sake.

The price is right on, though, since he says it has $59000 miles. What a deal!

I don't know anything about Supras, but the car in this ad is not a typical DD Supra. I'm not saying the price is right (I have no idea), but it's definitely not a garden variety Supra if it really has 1082rwhp as claimed in the ad.

Bay Area shoppers, get your wallets out, NICEST CAR IN SAN JOSE is officially on the market.



Choice snippets are: I bought this car from my 91 year old grandmother before she died about 4 years ago, "put a graphic stripe on the side of the car", This is a fully loaded 1988 Nissan stanza GXE with 75k original miles, Do not waste my time because there is not one car on the market that has been serviced and driven like this one that you can get in and drive for the next 5 years and take nothing out of your pocket to maintain it.
No one drives like grandma drove. <100 HP of fury can be yours today for only 3200 bucks!

What's funny is that I *never* see late-80s Stanzas anymore. It's like they all dropped off the face of the earth. My mom had an '84, then an '87 which eventually became my sister's first car, and then she killed it. My dad had an '87 Maxima (that talked!) and I never see those either. Seeing this ad actually makes me a little nostalgic for my high school days (though our Stanzas were all silver).

I know this isn't from Craigslist, but it's not worth it's own thread and dammit, I want it.

It wouldn't even fit in my garage, but at least I'd get to play Ronin every time I drove it.

Sorry for the odd sized screen cap...

Sorry to post this tired cliché, but if it were close to me I would buy it. I'm not kidding. Sure, it's quickly becoming winter here in Minnesota, but I'd buy it, stick it in my garage and fix what it needed until I could proudly drive it around all next summer. There's no way my wife would let me buy a used cop car, chop the top off it and paint it flat green, but how could she argue with one that's already had all that done for ONLY $500?

No cliche necessary. If I could afford the time and spare the cash I WOULD go buy this... today. BUT, I've already got two Miatas, an F-150, an Audi 80 and a 95 Caprice cop car, so my wife would kick me out and force me to live in the back of one of them...

I always wanted to buy something like a mid-70s land yacht and cut the top off like that, maybe even weld the doors shut... I was going to paint mine some other color, but the army green is awesome.

poo poo, I didn't even think of welding the doors shut. That Crown Vic is a perfect car for Dukes of Hazzard-style over-the-door entry. Seeing it makes me wish I had the money to chop the top off a Mercury Marauder.
