Craigslist Crapshoot

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.  Garageable Camper may sound like a contradiction in terms, but it’s an idea that actually exists. Last week we went looking for something that could be a home-away-from-home, and could also fit in an average home’s garage. We’ll see the best way to house a house in just a sec, but first this week’s quixotic quest. Pony cars from the mid-to-late ’70s are a rare breed. Mustang IIs and Monzas weren’t the most compelling horses out there, and while both the Camaro and Firebird tried to keep the performance flame alive, there wasn’t much they could do in light of ever-tightening emissions and fuel economy requirements. Many of the ponies from that era have been turned into drag cars, which is all fine and dandy if that’s your bag. What we want to see this week are the best examples of mid to late ’70s pony cars that haven’t been dragged to their doom. Price will be no object. As always, we want your finds to go down in infamy and not in the site’s spam filter. Since we’ve changed commenting systems, you may need to update your commenter account. Make sure you have a Disqus account – they’re free and easy to get – and then comment away.

Got that? Good, now let’s go camping.

Garageable seems to be an ambiguous term, however some of the ads found last week did fit the letter of the law. Of course a few of those, like the World’s Most Expensive Westie found by Salguod, and the petri dish masquerading as a VW Bus camper turned up by dukeisduke had their own issues. Perhaps the most amazing ad was the one for the “former brothel” motorhome, offered up by Gryphon68. I sure hope that guy’s dad sees the Craigslist listing and knows to avoid Clingy McForgivy. For our winner however, we sought to toe the line with the original conscript which was to be able to fit in your average garage. That feat, and the week’s top honor, goes to the ’49 Buick Super Camper conversion and GTXcellent, respectively. You will absolutely need that garage space to get the car up and road-worthy, and to clean out what appear to be all the dryer sheets, or perhaps tissues, the purpose of which in a secretive space I don’t even want to consider. Congrats to GTXcellet, and thank you all for making me a happy camper. 1949 Buick Camper
