Nice Upgrades – 1987 Audi 4000 Quattro

July 15, 2016

Do you fall into the category of people known as “anyone”? Or are you someone, or everyone? Because if you’re “anyone”, move along, buddy, this car’s not available to you. There are many online listings with sellers who try to limit who they will sell their car to, but unless the purchase decision is based on impulse, someone who falls in love with their expectation of what the car will be would be hard to eliminate. And if they’re truly intent on gutting the car for parts for their own project, they can make something up to soothe the worried seller. That said, it’s understandable why a seller would be concerned about the fate of a car they like – check out this 1987 Audi 4000 Quattro for sale for $4000 in Milwaukie, OR.

Spitfire in St. Helens – 1953 Chrysler Windsor Deluxe

July 1, 2016

Mt. St. Helens is famous for spitting fire (and a lot more) back in 1980, and the Chrysler Windsor was not quite so famous for having a Spitfire six-cylinder engine as its base specification in the early 1950s. The Windsor was a rather conservatively styled entry model of the luxury Chrysler lineup, and it’s hard to imagine the change that would come in the next 10-15 years at Chrysler – outrageous fins, ornate styling, and then slab sided minimalism. Sheet metal and a one-piece windshield were new for 1953, and while the Hemi 331 V8 was the more desirable engine with its 180hp, the 265 L-head six put out a respectable 119hp and was known for being smooth and durable. So let’s take a look at a car that, based solely on its location, *may* have survived the explosion of Mt. St. Helens – check out this 1953 Chrysler Windsor Deluxe for sale for $3300 in St. Helens, WA.

WWPD – 1981 BMW 320i KA-T

June 12, 2016

Have you ever found yourself wondering how cars designed by a specific artist would appear? BMW has done a series of art cars, so you don’t have to guess at Andy Warhol or Roy Calder’s interpretations of their cars. If you were looking for Picasso’s take on a car, what make would you expect it to be? Citroen seems most likely, but the only car with his name on it is the Xsara/C4 Picasso, a small one-box design that doesn’t seem to take anything from its namesake – in fact, the first generation Fiat Multipla is one of the most surreal minivans, with abstract elements like relocated headlights and beltline. There’s also a Citroen 2CV that’s had its body rearranged in a sort of Picasso-esque interpretation of where the parts belong. However, if you’re looking for a Picasso-esque interpretation of a BMW, there aren’t many places to turn. Until now. Take a look at this 1981 BMW 320i for sale for $3800 in Milwaukie, OR.
