Default Interesting cars for sale

Thanks to various car sites, I come across some interesting cars for sale. I figured I need to start sharing. If I ever become independently wealthy, this will become my "see what I just bought thread".

So share what ya find. We'll start with some JDM love.

1968 Datsun Fairlady 2000 (with a modern engine upgrade)

There's an old Studabaker for sale off Rt. 13 I see when I'm driving between school and my parents house.

Oooo. Me likey the 2000. A neighbor in Columbus had one and then down here in Nashville I used to see one on the way to work for years.

Pretty car, and the motor upgrade is undoubtedly a sweeet thing (stupid reliable too).

Very nice!

Hemmings had a few listed a month or so back - haven't checked again but there was one near Chi Town that looked sweet.

My buddy has been building a similar Datsun for years now. Same thing but with SR20DET power!

I've seen this car a few times, if I'm not mistake it's one of two in the USA. Has the same motor as one of my dream cars, the Toyota Sports 800.

Both the Datsun and the Austin Healey are fantastic. I love the classics

Think I <3 the Datsun more (a bit more of a sleeper maybe? Dunno...), but the Healey is pretty cool. Should rock with that Cossie sitting up front!

It gets better There's a company over here in England who built that replica you see above & according to their website you can have one built with either that cosworth engine or a 350HP Chevy V8 under the hood I'm sure that would fair move! all for 35,750.00 thats around $71,500.00
