Weekend Quickies - Saturday, July 9, 2011

1987 Volvo 740 Turbo - I've been looking for a 740 / 940 Turbo. I really need a station wagon, though.

This is a hard to find 5 speed. It looks to be in great shape.

740s seem to run forever. In my quest to find a station wagon, I've seen several with over 300,000 miles on them.

If you're looking for a fast, dependable car that will never, ever, stand out in a crowd, a Volvo 740 Turbo can't be beat.

1969 Pontiac Grand Prix SJ - This is one of my favorite American classics. As I wrote in an earlier post, I really wanted my dad to buy one of these when I was a kid.

When you look at the cookie cutter cars that have been coming from Detroit (and, really, from around the world) for the past 30 years, it's hard to believe that GM once built a car with styling as bold as this. Whether you love it or hate it, you can never confuse it for another car. (And, yes, there are a few other American cars from the 50s to the early 70s that the same can be said about.)

This car appears to be in good shape and is being offered at top dollar.

1966 Ford Cortina GT - Here's a cool project. When discussing hot Cortinas, the Lotus Cortina is the car that is usually discussed. While not as "exotic" as a Lotus Cortina, the Cortina GT can be just as fun and is a lot less fragile. (Not to mention a lot less expensive to buy.)

I can't remember when I last saw a Cortina GT on the road. Most have been set up for racing. I'd love to see this car restored it to its original specs and condition.
