Rusten Men Trofasten – Citroen CX 2.2 TRS Break

April 20, 2016

It’s always fun to look at what the self-imposed $4000ish budget cap will get you elsewhere in the world, and what better place to look than Denmark, home of the 180% tax on automobiles (which is actually the ceiling on new cars, starting at 105% with the ceiling dropping to a mere 150% this year). Fortunately, this tax is not imposed on used cars, good news if you’re a Danish classic car enthusiast. And that’s how you can find interesting deals on odd cars like this 1986 Citro├źn CX Break for sale for KR19,000 (about $2886 today) in Klampenborg, Denmark.

Str8 off the Streets of Mutha#%@# West Seattle? – 1991 Peugeot 505 DL Wagon

July 3, 2015

It’s a funny thing with Peugeot 505s – a car that is probably the equivalent of an Accord or Taurus in its home country is considered an oddball in North America. Just goes to show direct translation from one culture to another is not always successful. Be that as it may, the oddball factor makes it popular among a select few and also contributes to its low market value. Peugeot 505s were a handsome wagon, with the trademark slanted headlights, comfortable ride and seats, and long wheelbase for a car in its class. On top of that, their reputation for durability is no secret, and as long as you look after them you should expect as much as you would of a contemporary Mercedes, Volvo, or Saab. Check out this 1991 Peugeot 505 DL Wagon for sale for $2800 in West Seattle, WA.

Pair o’ Pugs – 1990 Peugeot 405 Wagon & 1991 Peugeot 405 Sedan

April 29, 2015

As discussed here previously, the 405 was Peugeot’s final gasp attempt at remaining in the North American market. Even the less observant among us will know that Peugeot North America kicked the bucket here in 1992, though there are still not-uncommon sightings of Peugeots, and rumors that of plans to return to the continent. However, it doesn’t seem that there is the active fan base enjoyed by other departed brands (such as Alfa Romeo), so it doesn’t provoke as much of a racket each time those rumors surface. All that said, the 405 was one of their last Pininfarina styled cars, and there’s an opportunity out there for you to have two versions of one of the better-looking early 1990s family cars out there – check out this 1990 Peugeot 405 wagon and 1991 Peugeot 405 sedan for sale for $1600 for the pair in Washougal, WA.
