1979 Fiat X1/9 - First off, Fiat X1/9s, while not that common in general, are well represented in Minnesota. Every summer, we have a Wheels of Italy car show, and there's usually 11 or 12 that show up.
This yellow example looks pretty good on the surface, but I did noticed a rather nasty dent in the driver's door. The seller says it needs some TLC, and insists that it could be a $5000 vehicle.
While that may be true, I've never seen a non-project for sale so I wouldn't know. I would much rather be seen in a $1500 sports car than some ragged Camry that's for sure.

1975 Chevy Vega GT - Ah, yes, the vehicle that (supposedly) rusted faster than it could leave dealer lots. Honestly, I think that may be a myth; I have always liked Vegas from a styling standpoint, but the mechanicals were a severe letdown. Thankfully, this one fixes that; gone is the pathetic little four cylinder, and inside the engine bay is shoehorned a 327. I've never driven or ridden in a Vega, but I can say that the 327 surely adds enough oomph to justify the GT badging.
