The Un-Camry – 1985 Mitsubishi Tredia

August 1, 2015

Yawner Japanese sedans with an autolethargic transmission don’t make many appearances here, but there is the odd exception. As usual, the unicorn factor strikes again, because when’s the last time you saw a Mitsubishi Tredia with 37,000 miles on it? Were you even a glint in your daddy’s eye? Or too busy buying white aviator shades to go with your white leather man-dals? Either way, it’s a rare sight, and it’s also striking how similar this looks to the contemporary Camry. Actually, this looks like someone put a first-generation Camry in a blender with a splash of Renault Alliance and a soupcon of Renault Medallion to come up with a perfectly anonymous sedan. Nonetheless, it’s pretty cool to see one that’s still so youthful in miles. Check out this 1985 Mitsubishi Tredia for sale for $2000 in Novato, CA.

$499 for Eight Speeds – 1984 Dodge Colt DL

June 28, 2015

There’s something really satisfying about buying a whole car – something for which someone once probably took a loan, and on which they made payments – for the price of something like, say, a domestic airfare or a TV. Yet if you set your expectations correctly, you can definitely do this, and if you’re lucky, you can even find something less bland than your neighbor’s old ’87 Tercel EZ with 234,000 miles. Of course, it may just be that the thing making the car less bland is just a gimmick, but hey, when you’re dealing with 3-digit prices you’ll get your money’s worth after only a few weeks! Check out this 1984 Dodge Colt DL for sale for $499 in Port Orchard, WA.

November 12, 2013

For those of you who are feeling left behind by the collector car bubble that’s driven the value of some muscle cars, Porsches, Ferraris and more to unattainable heights, the opportunities are still out there if you have time. Even some 1980s cars have started taking off as people are looking for a seat before the music stops, but if you’re willing to buy and hold (and drive, of course, that’s the whole point!), the Starion/Conquest cars are a great bet. You can find this 1986 Mitsubishi Starion Turbo for sale in the San Fernando Valley, CA for a mere $2750.
