This is a new idea that may turn into a regular feature on the blog, depending on how much people like it. The idea is to find a classic car in rough condition for sale and then do a Virtual Build. I may share it on Facebook but hopefully some of you will share your thoughts in our comments section here and not just on Facebook.
In this case I found a candidate right on our own classified page. This little gem can be yours for $5,500. Here’s the link (note: at some point the ad will expire and the link might not work): 1970 Monte Carlo for sale on Rubber Hits The Road
I’ve already come up with two ways to build this.
- As a luxury build with a Cadillac or old luxury car vibe from the 40’s and ’50s.
- As an all business bad-ass machine.
In both cases, contrary to my usual instincts, I would go with an automatic transmission. It fits with the luxury theme and also with the all business – ease of use concept too….
