Craigslist Crapshoot

The World’s Worst Car Is For Sale On Craigslist
Welcome to Craigslist Crapshoot, our weekly search for the most bizarre, awesome, and/or terrible vehicles that the online classifieds has to offer. 
While not all that popular today, the combination of four cylinders and rear-wheel drive was once the de jure form factor for small cars and trucks. As proved by all the greatness found by you last week, there are still plenty of them to go around. We’ll get around to the pick of the litter in a sec, but first, this week’s challenge.
This week we’re keeping the theme of RWD, although we’ll allow 4WD too because we’re pretty easy. Perhaps not so easy will be finding candidates that meet the other criteria as well, which is diesel power, and mini pickup or SUV form. That’s right, this week we want to find all the diesel mini-trucks you can. Oh and, money’s no object.
As always, we want your finds to go down in infamy and not in the site’s spam filter. Follow any of the following advice and you’re crap will be known far and wide.

  1. Easiest way to not get caught in the spam filters is to create an IntenseDebate account. If you do so and your posts aren’t appearing, let us know at tips@hooniverse.info and we can put you on the whitelist
  2. If you don’t want an IDC account, you can create a wordpress.com account and do the same thing.
  3. If you’re the Ted Kaczynski type and don’t want any kind of account, then try to place only a single link in a comment and just drop any outgoing link in via its raw URL and not as a text link.

Got that? Good, now we can move on.

    For $5,150 (“No Lowballers.”), this ’82 Datsun King Cab is royally tempting.

    But what of last week’s winner!? I had an awesome submission for this one last week, but it has sadly disappeared from the list of craig, so now I’m left scrambling for a replacement.
    Okay, so it’s not original, packing a NAH imported diesel, and it certainly isn’t cheap, but my gods is it awesome.

    with this under the hood:

    Seen here:
    Put YO oil in it!

      Seems to be a popular import, they’re surprisingly common in Sask too.

    What’s that knocking? Apparently it’s the Toyota diesel engine installed in this Dodge Dakota.
