The World’s Worst Car Is For Sale On Craigslist

Welcome to Craigslist Crapshoot, our weekly search for the most bizarre, awesome, and/or terrible vehicles that the online classifieds has to offer. Last week I asked you to find weird engine swaps, the weirder the better. We’ll get to the winner of that hunt after the jump, but first let’s get to this week’s assignment.

Well actually we’ll have the assignment in a minute, but first a slight game change for Craigslist Crapshoot. Since you all find a lot that’s wonderful along with society’s grounds in the bottom of our collective coffee cup, we’re going to add that as acceptable response, because we don’t want to miss all this great stuff. As such, instead of just the worst of whatever you are tasked to find, I want the wildest, the most audacious, whether bad or good.

And now, about this week’s search. This one comes from our own Kamil Kaluski, and he wants you to find. . . Brown Rear-Wheel-Drive Station Wagons. . . with manual transmissions. Yes, he’s weird that way, and now you can be as well.

And as usual, we want your finds to go down in infamy and not in the site’s spam filter. Follow any of the following advice and you’re crap will be known far and wide.

  1. Easiest way to not get caught in the spam filters is to create an IntenseDebate account. If you do so and your posts aren’t appearing, let us know at tips@hooniverse.com and we can put you on the whitelist
  2. If you don’t want an IDC account, you can create a wordpress.com account and do the same thing.
  3. If you’re the Ted Kaczynski type and don’t want any kind of account, then try to place only a single link in a comment and just drop any outgoing link in via its raw URL and not as a text link
Craigslist Crapshoot doesn’t work if your candidates don’t get seen, so hopefully following one of these options will ensure that the floodgates of crap are fully open. And now, on to the swap meet.

When it comes to engine swaps, the answer isn’t always SBC, or perhaps LS1. You all proved that there’s a dog’s breakfast of weird and wonderful heart transplants going on out there that their builders consider such great successes that they want to share them with the world, through selling them.
Of course there can be but one switcheroo that stands tall before the man, and for last week’s Craigslist Crapshoot king, I have crowned Volvo owner and weird Subaru finder FuzzyPlushRoom for this odd bodkin of an Impreza wagon with what looks like a beat to hell ez30d H6. Well done Fuzzy!
