The perfect second car – 1958 Metropolitan for sale

What is white and turquoise and cute all over? OK, maybe that's not the greatest line to start a car review with, but come on, we're looking a freakin' Metropolitan for sale here. And yes, it's just Metropolitan. Though introduced for 1954 as the Nash Metropolitan, a merger with Hudson would see it also sold as a Hudson Metropolitan starting in 1955. Then in 1958 it became a stand alone make from the newly formed American Motors Corporation. Funny enough, this car isn't exactly American. Though designed in Kenosha, Wisconsin as the second car for a two car family, building the Metropolitan domestically proved too expensive for Nash. To bring it to fruition overseas manufacturing proved to be a must. Nash negotiated with a variety of European automakers, asking them to use their...

Winter is Coming! Conquer the snow with this International Scout

First introduced in 1961, the International Harvester Scout hit the market as a direct competitor of the civilian Jeep. Building trucks was nothing new for IH; they'd been manufacturing them since 1907 and had even introduced the truck-based Travelall in the early 1950s. However, most of their market was heavy duty, making the Scout a standout product for the company. The early SUV took aim at the daily driver who also needed a go anywhere kind of rig. The result would live on from 1961 through 1980. This 1966 International Scout for sale (link below), is chock full of patina but runs well and can be yours for just $5,500. Let's take a look. While the first 3,000 or so 1966 Scouts would be first generation Scout 80s, later in the year it would become the Scout 800. While the se...

5 Affordable Classic Station Wagons for Sale on Craigslist

As a kid, the mere chance of the popular kids seeing you exit a street legal elephant at school could have been enough to ask mom to drop you off down the street from the school.

A suitable response of "Gee, thanks pop," is all that floats from your mouth. All hope of roaring into the parking lot in a street machines have been completely squashed by the two tons of steel, rubber and probably fake wood that now sits in the driveway. But hey, wheels right? Fast forward to today, ten bucks says you wish you still had that car. The rise of station wagons is among us! These 5 station wagons for sale on Craigslist are just a few of the potential project...
