With four-doors’ and crossovers crazily co-opting the mantle of Coupe,Nice Price or Crack Pipe Jetta around to legitimately own that I’m ashamed to admit that amongst the dozens of cars I’ve owned in my life, not a single one has been Italian. Oh, I’ve driven plenty of Italian cars, everything from lowly Fiats and an actual Innocenti Mini all the way up to Ferraris, Maseratis, and D Advertisement That likely would have all changed if yesterday’s 1986 Alfa Romeo Spider Veloce had been within spitting distance of me. At $3,500, I could probably swing it, I do have one of those fancy new Apple Cards after all. I also didn’t think that any of the work it needed was beyond my skill level. Most of you agreed that it would have been a reasonably good idea, showering the car with praise in the comments and awarding it a solid 70 Now, I want to start out today’s discussion by first apologizing for featuring two VW’s this week. I do try to mix … [Read more...] about At $8,000, Is This R32-Swapped 1987 VW Jetta A Total Coupe De Grâce?

Few of us are eager to drive around advertising a business without commensurate compensation, but when the ad in question is as cool as the one on today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe F100, exceptions may be made. Let’s see if this classic pickup’s price is just as exceptional. There are a myriad of ways in which the European Union is different from the United States, but perhaps the most important one is in Advertisement That popularity didn’t extend to yesterday’s 1987 VW Jetta, despite the car having an old school two-door body and a desirable R32 VR6 engine swap, both of which looked extremely clean. Neither however, When it comes to ultimate vehicle sales here in the U.S., actual This 1964 Ford F100 is one of that diminishing supply. Sixties trucks aren’t as numerous today as they once were, and finding one that isn’t either a clapped-out rust bucket or surgical operatory-clean garage queen is an ever more challenging task. I think … [Read more...] about At $4,500, Could This 1964 Ford F100 Pickup Turn You Into The Mac Daddy?
Ignore my driver’s license. Ignore my “birthdate.” I am 12 years old. Most of the time, I am 12 in the sense that all I want to do is watch monster trucks and children’s card games on television. Sometimes, I am 12 in the sense that I want to be a living, breathing Polly Pocket, except more sparkly. That was the case when I bought a pair of knee-high, rhinestone-covered boots with heels roughly as tall as a wine bottle. It was the case when I drank a bit too much wine last week and started ordering jewelry online for no reason other than that it was shiny. Sometimes, this stuff just happens. Advertisement And, you see, it was also the case when I saw this 2006 Lotus Elise for sale, because the thing is pink. It’s frickin’ pink. And when you zoom in, do you know what you see? Pink rhinestones. Frickin’ pink rhinestones. (Mom and Dad told me I can’t use the other “F” word, or I’ll get grounded.) Sure, one or two … [Read more...] about May I Please Direct Your Attention Toward This Pink Lotus Elise For Sale
Whether Fast or Square, VW's Type 3 was all about the back. One back we in the U.S. didn't officially get was the Notch, but Nice Price or Crack Pipe has one that might make you say baby got back. VW introduced the Type 3 in 1961, expanding their product line beyond the Beetle, Type 2 Bus, and Karmann Ghia. Although the new car shared many components and layout with the Type 1 Beetle, the Type 3 saw several engineering advances improving both utility and drivability. The engine in the first Type 3s remained the same 1500-cc horizontally opposed four cylinder, but instead of a vertical fan shroud, it moved the fan behind the engine, allowing for a much more compact package and earning the nicknames pancake and suitcase. Up front, the suspension replaced the beetle's transverse torsion leaves with a torsion bar set up that also incorporated an anti-roll bar at the upper trailing arm pivot. Advertisement While the Notchback and Type 34 Karmann Ghia (that's the one with the owl … [Read more...] about Put a Notch on Your Belt for $5,400
There’s a point in every conversation that starts on the internet about someone wanting to make their old Volkswagen Beetle go fast that someone pulls it up. It’s inevitable, and always the same link. It’s this wonderful guide hosted on aircooled.net, and it’s more specific than you’d think for something shared so often. It’s a guide on suspension set up for hillclimb racing, short sprints up closed mountain roads. It’s not autocross. It’s not road racing. It’s a niche kind of event. Advertisement And yet this is what you see popping up all the time on VW forums because, well, it’s really good. The writer, Greg Ward, explains not just what he did that worked, but tells the story of all the shit he did that didn’t, figuring out what not to do, and what each mechanical change to his car did in terms of how it handled, how it felt, how big of an undertaking it was.
