Weekend Edition Quick Hit – This is a 2000 Ford Focus Pickup… Wait…,What!??

2000 Ford Focus Pickup - Google Chrome 8172014 110026 AM.bmp

Here on the Hooniverse we have featured a number of weird and wonderful creations, as well as a few that have been questionable at best. Well, here is a Ford Focus that has been turned into a Pickup Truck of some sort, and I’m really not sure how I feel about it. There are some odd details here and there, but it looks like a reasonable conversion overall. So, what do you think?

Weekend Edition Quick Hit – Here is a 1950 Hudson that has been turned into a Mud Toy…

Opening up our Sunday Edition of the Hooniverse Weekend, and I thought I would start out with this thing… A 1950 Hudson Commodore 4-door sedan mounted on a 1979 Chevrolet 4X4 Truck Frame. I have no idea as to why the builder would perform such a monumental piece of engineering, but to me it seems all wrong… So, I have to ask our readers this question: What do you think of it?

Weekend Edition Quick Hit – Here is a 1972 Plymouth Fury III Coupe from Hershey, PA…

To any casual reader of the Honiverse Weekends, you all know that I am a sucker for the early 70′s Chrysler Fuselage editions of the full-sized lineup. I used to search on internet web sites using key words such as Fury, Polara, Monaco, Newport, New Yorker, and Imperial. During this time period, the full sized Chrysler, Dodge, and Plymouth models were a bit more distinctive than the offerings from Ford or GM, and a lot more distinctive from today’s sea of sameness. So, could a full-sized Plymouth Coupe be used as an everyday cruiser?

Continuing on with this weekends Quick Hits, and look at what I found this time… An Electric Plymouth Horizon TC3 Coupe from 1981. This car looks to be in incredible shape, and the paint color is what I would call Electric Blue (what else could I call it?) but does this car make you want to own it?

Weekend Edition Quick Hit – Here’s a Sweet 1980 Lincoln Versailles to start your Weekend Right…

1980 Lincoln Versailles - Google Chrome 8152014 72325 PM.bmp

Welcome to the Hooniverse Weekend Edition, where I try to entertain you for the next two days with whatever I can find around the web that is car related. The late 70′s and early 80′s was a weird time for the auto industry, and the term Malaise has been used to describe this time period, and it actually fits. Here is an example of a car produced during this time period… a Lincoln Versailles, displayed in all of its resplendence with a formal roofline, two-tone paintwork, wire wheel covers, and a blood-red leather interior. Is this car Lustworthy?

1956 International Travelall: Bring ALL THE THINGS to ALL THE PLACES

1956 International travelall 4x4 for sale

Apologies for the memey title; it’s late. While Jeep lives on as the brand synonymous with Barbie 4x4s, International gave them a run for their money back in the middle of the century. Case in point? This Travelall Model S120, which looks like a medium-sized bus with rare-for-the-time four wheel drive. I’ll be 100% honest and say no one here knows much about these, so there’s not much to add. Even the requisite Wikipedia search tells us they the S120 is the heavier-duty option and that straight six is a 220ci unit (probably making something like 90hp). I fully expect commenter Scoutdude to weigh in with more details and perspective.

So, what you see is what you get: a bus-like thing that you could spend countless dollars and hours restoring to original, or a canvas to create your own camping/mountain lodge shuttle/gigantic family off-roading masterpiece. It’s sitting with 1 day to go an a $5,500 Buy-it-Now.

Partially Reconstructed Espada For Sale Two Months Later

Tim Odell August 12, 2014 eBay Insanity, For Sale

1971 lamborghini espada for sale

Back at the end of May, we marveled to see one of the roughest Lamborghini Espadas in recent memory sell for $78 grand. While the Jalpa, Jota and Jarama take podium in the oxymoronic Bargain Lamborghini contest, Espadas aren’t supposed to be that expensive. The plot thickens today, as the same overpriced car from a little over two months ago is back on the Bay of e. In the previous listing, the majority of the interior sat next to the car in piles, “ready to go in”. It appears the current seller installed all of those bits along with glass and trim. Additionally, they’ve upgraded from “turns over” to “running, but needs carb and fuel system work”.

$78k seemed expensive for a pile of parts with potential. The bidding’s at $20k with an unmet reserve as I type this; I wonder what they’re hoping to get for their trouble? $85? $90? $100 grand? What’s the rattiest (but now slightly less ratty!) Lambo around worth? Auction ends this weekend!

$16,000 BMW CS Coupe Might be the Cheapest Intact One You’ll Ever See

1974 bmw 3.0 cs coupe for sale

We should do a Hooniverse Asks about what car is so beautiful you don’t care how much pain it will cause you. Such is the BMW E9 CS Coupe for me. Unless properly addressed, their rust issues are terrifying. The interior tends to degrade horribly in the presence of excess dryness or moisture, they’re not all that fast and many are automatics. But dammit man, they’re so gorgeous. Tragically, examples with the correct drivetrain and minimal bodywork issues range in price from a nice E46 M3 to a new F80.

So, at a $16,000 asking price, this not-quite-perfect-but-not-quite-hopeless E9 tantalizes. It’s had the engine upgraded to a later 3.5L M30, has 30 years of service records, and a claimed absence of structural rust. Sure, it’s still got the three-speed auto, but there are no shortage of donor four or five speeds to be dropped in. Then again, for 16 large, one could buy a large fleet of nearly mechanically identical 6-series’ at about $2k each. Or, you know, a decent M3. But they wouldn’t be as pretty.
