Craigslist: "Field of Cars" has Something for Everyone



There is something interesting about an old high-desert lot full of cars.  The rust, even on the oldest and most susceptible tin, is often only surface deep, and the cars can sit unperturbed for decades before the owner, or more likely his wife, gets tired of looking at them.  If they sit around for long enough, they can often be had for pennies on the dollar, and make for excellent restoration or driver quality projects.  This particular eclectic collection has a number of cars from the 50s, 60s, and 70s, and isn’t limited to one genre.  There are muscle cars, old jalopies, and even a few little European runabouts.  Being a euro enthusiast, my eye was drawn particularly to the BMW 2002s (one of which is claimed to be running), and the TR-6, though the Rubber Bumper MGB and Alfa Spyder make a strong case for saving.  Of course, no price is listed, so who knows if any deals can actually be found in this Hoon Heaven.

I don’t really understand his formatting, and the numbers seem arbitrarily ascribed, but drilling down to the meat of it, it looks like he has a lot of GREAT cars.  Of course, many of them don’t have titles, but they’d make good racecars, I presume…  How cool would it be to show up at a vintage racing event with a fully prepared Nash Le Mans with a 1957 Dodge Power Wagon tow vehicle?  The answer you’re looking for is “supremely awesome.”
