Welcome to Craigslist Crapshoot, our weekly search for the most bizarre, awesome, and/or terrible vehicles that the online classifieds has to offer.
Is $1,500 a lot of money to you? I know it is to me, but it generally won’t get you all that much that’s interesting in the used car market. Still, that’s just what we were looking for last week—your nominations on how you would spend $1,500 on a car or car part. We’ll see how we did in a sec, but first, this week’s challenge.
Okay, this week you’ve discovered that a distant relative that you’ve never actually met has passed away (our condolences, of course) and has left you the amazing sum of $10,500—ten times last week’s paltry amount. The only stipulation of the inheritance is that you need to spend it on a car or truck to start your career as an Uber driver. What do you buy?
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.
Okay, so since last week’s challenge was kind of an individual vision quest for each of you I don’t want to pick out any individual selections in concern of slighting everyone else.
I do want to make note however, of the choice made by Wayne Moyer, simply because it’s one that I think we can all get behind, and that’s this 1962 Buick Skylark V8. Party on, Wayne.
