A Few Quick Things For A Friday...

1973 MGB GT - About 20 years ago, some car collector expert (I can't remember which one) predicted that the MGB GT was going to become a collectable car. Fortunately, he was wrong. Nice B GTs can still be found for reasonable prices.

This one is near the top end of the price scale, but it may be worth it.

If I ever decide to buy an MGB again, it will be a GT.

Located in Bozeman, MT, click here to see the Craigslist ad.

A big thanks to JaCG reader, Clint, for sending me the link to this car.

Garage of Awesome- Another very cool car blog / site. I just found this one. I spent far too much time looking at it this morning. An Australian site, it's new and at times slightly irreverent. I love it.

You can find it here.

1992 Subaru SVX - I've always liked these cars. Until recently, Subaru had sort of a Citroen mentality. They built well engineered, quirky, odd, very often fun cars. The SVX is a perfect example of that.

This car appears to be in very, very nice shape. Personally, I'd ditch the gold wheels before I took it anywhere in public.

Located in Plymouth, CT, click here to see the eBay listing.

A big thanks to Tony for sending me the link to this car!

SVX's are a strange bird. People either love them or hate them. I think some people just can't fathom the whole "half window thing". It just does not compute to some people. Me? I'm a fan. I also like 90-94 Eclipse's which are similar looking, kind of like a cheese wedge.

1) SVX = love
2) Should note that it has a desirable 5-speed manual transmission conversion.
3) The custom matching leather jacket is a bit much.

The SVX is the car I bought my 16 year old. Impeccable handling, not too fast, big and pretty safe. I have seen 2 young kids killed lately in newer Honda Civics. Yea they were driving too fast and didn’t have seat belts on but both of them lost control. With this low, heavy and awd car, that isn’t going to happen. I drove it this winter and it was a rock. Great visibility too.

The gold wheels is a Subaru thing. Just be glad they aren't pink.

Way cool car.
