About Jamie

I've been a car nut ever since I can remember, loving all cars but having a special affinity for eclectic British ones, starting with an Austin-Healey Sprite when I was 12.

There's nothing more fun than poking around an old car that hasn't been disturbed in years and getting it to run and drive again!

35 Years Off The Road! 1963 Studebaker Avanti

Not Lookin’ Fine: 1969 Pontiac GTO

While this 1969 Pontiac GTO has definitely seen better days, there’s enough car still there that it’s not a parts car, it’s a project car. The price certainly reflects that, with a no reserve auction here… more»

Nicest Around: 8,358 Mile 1986 Camaro IROC-Z

There comes a point where superlatives are wasted. Let’s just say that if the words IROC, mullet, Tuned Port Injection, Chernobyl & Challenger, Top Gun and Full House feel like you heard them just yesterday, this car means a lot… more»

Trans-Am Champ: 1974 AMC Javelin AMX

I’ve seen a lot of the “coke bottle” Javelins and AMXs in ads lately, but rarely are they this nice, original, and solid. Of course, you pay the price for that as well. The car is… more»

What A Buy! Maybe? $4k 1969 Triumph TR6

No, Howard, it doesn’t have overdrive, darnit. However, this 1969 Triumph TR6 looks like an excellent buy based on the pictures and information we have. It’s being advertised here on craigslist for only $4,000, which is… more»

Awfully Inexpensive? 1952 MG TD for $2,450

For a buy it now price of only $2,450, you won’t find many other rust free body MGTDs around. The red primer has been sprayed over what was left of the original white paint, and you… more»

Tri-Power/4-Speed: 1962 Ford Galaxie 500 XL

After seeing as many car advertisements as I do, I have a tendency to be a little ‘jaded’ when I see “rare” or “special” in an ad. Usually this means the seller has an overly inflated… more»

Unfinished Project: 1961 Ford Thunderbird Convertible

While some of the ‘heavy lifting’ has been completed on this 1961 Ford Thunderbird convertible, there’s still a fair portion to go. Luckily, that’s reflected in the price of the car where it’s listed for sale… more»

Cheap Classic: 1980 Chevrolet Camaro Z28

As we have shown in the past, it is possible to have a running classic for less than $5,000. Probably not a perfect one, mind you, but for those of us whose dreams are bigger than our… more»
