Welcome to Craigslist Crapshoot, our weekly search for the most bizarre, awesome, and/or terrible vehicles that the online classifieds has to offer.
There’s no fool like an April Fool and to celebrate that foolish day last week we asked you to find the most foolish car or truck that you could. We’ll get to fooling around in a sec, but first, this week’s quest.
The old adage goes Win on Sunday, Sell on Monday. Well, today’s Wednesday but I still want to see some winners, as in race cars that you think might be a good deal. Let’s scour the classifieds for the best deals in race cars, and let’s see if we can’t come up with a bargain starting grid.
As always, we want your finds to go down in infamy and not in the site’s spam filter. Since we’ve recently 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.
I’m feeling a little uncomfortable with the fact that a couple of the contenders found last week – like the camo Opel GT found by Jeepster, and the gangster-themed S-10 found by PotbellyJoe★★★★★ – are cars that I would totally rock. I’m far less comfortable with the rest, and I’m actually a bit horrified by our winner, a wildly modified mid-engine Ford Truck found by mdharrell. That thing is so crazy – and so professionally done – that it begs the question, was the builder not drunk when conceiving it?
Congrats to mdharrell, and thank you all for your contributions. Now let’s get our race on!
