Truth in advertising...

The Fastest, Most Dangerous Car You Can Buy on CL For Less Than $1000

Is life boring? Is your Corolla too safe? Is a life insurance payout favorable? Do you have a dream of torque steering into a tree? If so, this car should be in your driveway.

Here's your next ride-

A 1994 Saab 9000 Turbo Aero. Yes, this is a real Aero with a manual transmission and the larger turbocharger tuned to Stage 3 by Mike D. This lovely vehicle comes with the following premium features:

Rust. Lots of it. Like, look at the photos.
Runs greatt
Tons of miles. 255,000 to be exact.
Boost! Also, boost gauge. It goes to 20psi. Probably should go to 25
Check Engine Light is not on. Yes, this car still somehow has a Mass inspection sticker.
Stage 3 Mike D Trionic 5 ECU tune
Knock-off Forge Blow-Off Valve. It goes CHOOO CHOOO.
Factory Recaro seats.
Car has heat. I don't know why people always ask me this.
Cold-Air Intake.
(4) skinny snow tires for maximum loss of control.
New shiny exhaust.
No resonator. Still has catalytic converter. High-flow Muffler. Car is loud. Your neighbors will hate you.
The rear frame near the passenger-side tire is rusted. The strut is like...no longer connected. You won't lose the tire (it's a solid rear beam axle), but the fact that I had to specify that should scare you. I'll refer to this as a 'rolling deathtrap' for anyone who questions the structural integrity of the rear suspension.

If I cannot sell this car for $800, I will part it out. I mean, this is a real Aero car with fully functional drivetrain, a full good-condition Recaro interior, and catalytic converter.

Note: If you show up with your children and put them in this car, I will NOT sell it to you. What part about, "ROLLING DEATHTRAP" didn't you understand?

Calls are fine. Text messages are fine. E-mails are fine but expect a delay.

Somewhere out there is a LeMons team, with more MIG wire than common sense, searching for this exact vehicle.

The Undisputed Pinnacle of Automotive Engineering (93 Metro, 99k Mile) - $600

God is dead - But before he left, he gave us one last miracle.

The 1993 Geo Metro represents the peaceful bridge between the Eastern and Western worlds, owing to its origins as a partnership between manufacturers GM and Suzuki. It serves as a testament that we can live and work in harmony across different cultures and worlds, to produce new ideas and cars that are greater than the sum of their parts.

The 1993 Geo Metro is shining beacon of hope that we can cleanly live with respect to our planet, with its hardly polluting 1.0L 3 Cylinder engine. Gaia will look upon you and smile when she sees you achieving an EPA estimated 53 MPG in the city and 58 MPG on the highway. The eco revolution could begin with you!

The 1993 Geo Metro is a car for those with nothing to hide; Its many blemishes are plainly visible, from the shattered headlight lens, to the remnants of a once installed wheelchair ramp, to the utterly destroyed interior. The lack of a muffler sends a very loud, clear message to other drivers: "I'm here. I'm a Geo. Get used to it."

The 1993 Geo Metro is a car for the hardworking American that doesn't want anything handed to them. No power steering, no antilock brakes, and no electric windows. This is a vehicle meant for those with the strength and will to tame it, without any assistance from technology designed for the lazy masses.

The 1993 Geo Metro is a car for those who don't like to play by the rules. The lapsed registration and inspection serve as a figurative middle finger to the oppressive authorities who demand you have a muffler and working turn signals. As Luke Skywalker used the Millennium Falcon to push back against the Empire, so will you use this car to push back against the Texas Department of Public Safety.

You will face great challenges should you choose to accept your fate as a Geo owner. You will be an outlaw, unless you take on the daunting task of making this car legal, having to venture out to find a muffler welder and new turn signals. While it runs, you will have trouble accelerating quickly, as the transmission does not like to go below 3rd. Lesser people may mock you for the horrible interior and disassembled back seats, not realizing the great power that they're in the presence of. Your loyalty to regularly using this vehicle will be constantly tested, because the battery tends to go dead if you don't start it for more than about a week.

However great the challenge, the reward will be even greater. Fame, fortune, good health, attractive members of the opposite sex (or the same sex! The Geo won't judge.) will all be yours. The meaning of life and car ownership will become clear. Should you die in glorious car to car combat as a result of the tiny body and lack of airbags, you will ascend to Valhalla where you will feast and battle with other Geo owners for all eternity.

The 1993 Geo Metro has chosen you. Are you brave enough to accept its calling?

Kinda reminds me of Abe's turbocharged bike. Although his was pink and black leopard-print. (Or was it tiger stripe? Can't remember. But it's pink and black.)

1999 jeep Cherokee 2 door. Rare XJ

Paging Concealer to the white courtesy phone.



1999 jeep Cherokee 2 door. Rare XJ - $3499 (Timberlake)

Very hard to find late model 2 door XJ in great shape. It runs and drives perfect. Cold Ac and hot heat. 5 speed 2wd. Gets 25 mpg.
It's spent it's life towed behind an RV so it has much lower actual miles!
It has new tires and brakes and clutch. Tinted windows , nice wheels and stereo.
I added down other cool options like cruise control and tilt wheel also.
Must sell

That's probably the only time that thing can ever get 25MPG, being towed, with a tail wind, down a ravine.

It might be the 4 cylinder. I see no mention of a 4.0L
Looking like a real wiener. 2.5L 2WD... probably smells like mothballs.
