1967 Dodge Coronet R/T convertible project

Big-engine, convertible Mopars were the top of the muscle car heap before the market tumbled several years ago. This 1967 Dodge Coronet is a real-deal R/T drop top, but it will require some work to make it into a streetable machine. The engine was originally a 440-ci V8 the seller says was rated at 370 […]

1973 Mazda RX2

Here are two tips that rotary enthusiasts are sure to spit out if you ever question their beloved Wankel: 1: the engines must be given time to warm up fully for oil circulation; and 2: the engines must be redlined weekly to clear out carbon buildup. If it really is as simple as that, sign […]

1968 Datsun 510 sedan

This 1968 510 looks remarkably intact for a 43-year-old Japanese econobox. Appreciation for the model is growing today among the tuning set, as a low-buck alternative to the BMW 2002, but the cars were never preserved or cherished by collectors when they were new.

1968 Chevrolet Camaro SS

If vintage, reliable muscle is what you’re looking for, check out this ’68 Camaro.  Its 327 with 4-speed is the same tried-and-true powertrain combination used in earlier generations of the Corvette.  “This is a driver,” the seller notes. “You can drive this car across the country.” And with power steering and a/c, it’ll be a […]
