Hooniverse Weekend Edition Quick Hit – Here’s a 1983 Ford Quadravan 4X4 on Craigslist… I wonder what the interior is like…

Ok, so this is a rather late posting to the Saturday Edition of the Hooniverse Weekend, but how could I not share? This is one of those 4X4 Van Conversions built by a company called Pathfinder based out of San Gabriel, California. Apparently, these were very popular in the 70’s and 80’s, so maybe it’s time to combine your love of 4-Wheelin’ with your love of what ever you want to do in the back of a van…

Combing through the Craigslist Listings has been quite an experience for me, and every time I think I’ve seen everything, something new and incredibly wonderful magically appears… Like this Chevrolet Vega that sits on top of what was once a Mazda RX-7. How cool is that? And the magical part comes from the fact that it is currently for sale…

Welcome to another Weekend Edition of Quick Hits, in which I uncover hidden treasures (or forgettable trash… whatever…) for your viewing and commenting pleasure. So, let’s start with this thing found on the virtual pages of Craigslist Seattle, and according to the very limited research I found, this was a vehicle designed in the late 70’s and early 80’s, with plans that originally carried the Popular Mechanics logo. So, what do you think about owning this thing?

Weekend Edition Quick Hit – This is a nice example of a 1962 Studebaker Champ Pickup, And you can purchase it now!

1962 Studebaker Champ - Collector Truck - Google Chrome 1112015 15256 PM.bmp

The Studebaker Motorcar Company of South Bend, Indiana used to produce a great many cars and trucks throughout it’s lifespan as a vibrant company of the mid 20th century. However, things became just a bit more complicated after the conclusion of both the World War II and Korean conflicts, what with ever stronger competitors from GM, Ford and Chrysler, and the growing popularity of the smaller European Imports, the once great midwest car company was being squeezed out of the market (along with other independent car companies). This leaves us with glimpses of the once proud Studebaker vehicles, like this Champ Pickup that was produced close to the end of Studebaker Production here in the states. So, is it as desirable as I think it is?

Craigslist: A Defender 110 Priced Remarkably Well


The Land Rover Defender 110 can be found for sale in a variety of pockets throughout the country. The average asking price hovers somewhere between “Are you serious?” to “Man that’s some great crack you have!”

This 1985 Defender 110 being sold on Craigslist manages to find its price tag firmly in the realm of “…huh, that’s actually a great price.”

Let’s continue on with our Foreign Car Weekend with another recently euthanized import and see if it is worth owning over a more reputable (i.e. rather boring) vehicle like a CamryAccordSonataFusionAvenger… (Just kidding on that last one)… This is a Malaise Era Saab 99, built at least two years before the almighty 99 Turbo model made it’s debut. And just for the hell of it, let’s see if anyone can tell me where the location of the Saab Headquarters before GM took over the company…

Weekend Edition Quick Hit – Could you see yourself owning this 1985 Renault Fuego?

RENAULT FUEGO 1985 2.2L 5 SPEED - Google Chrome 132015 10348 PM.bmp

I thought I would do a weekend of weird import cars that I found on Craigslist… You know the ones that used to be sold here in the states but never seem to have developed a following like BMW, Subaru, or even Mazda… Most of the cars are orphaned here, even though the manufacturers are still producing cars… Like this 1985 Renault Fuego.

Weekend Edition Quick Hit – So, what do you think about this 1980 Rover SD1, and is it worth owning?

Yes, I know it has been a bit sparse as far as weekend postings go, but we are now over the holiday season (that wacky time here in the states between our Thanksgiving, through Christmas, and the celebrating of New Years) and now we have to look forward to at least 8 to 10 weeks of winter (at least here in the Northeast)… So, I will try and be vigilant in providing at least some entertainment, and why not start with this Craigslist Listing for a Rover…

Weekend Edition Quick Hit – Here is an extremely rare 1988 Dodge Caravan with a Stick!

88 dodge caravan with manual - Google Chrome 12142014 125839 PM.bmp

The minivan was popularized by Chrysler starting in 1983. Yes there were compact passenger vans available before these came out in the form of the VW Microbus, and the forward control Ford Econoline, Dodge A100, the Chevrolet G Series, and the Corvair Greenbriar, but it was the Chrysler twins (The Caravan and the Plymouth Voyager) that virtually dominated the market, and helped make the affordable station-wagon disappear. We all want to hate on the Minivan because of that, but I want to show you what could be one of the more interesting early example of the breed in the form of a pretty basic Caravan, with a 5-Speed Manual…
