Not Feelin’ It (NEW! Award 51): 1972 Pontiac LeMans Sport Convertible – $30,000

Some Craigslist ads just make us stop and shake our heads, especially when they indicate the car is not yet ready for sale and they are listing their car as a “feeler” to determine whether there is interest. In this latest example, the private seller of this driver-quality 1972 Pontiac Lemans 350 Sport Convertible listed it as a '73 earlier this week on Craigslist in nearby Lambertville, with...
Rare Option: 1966 Chevrolet Corvair Monza Convertible – STILL $15,000

Before You Buy, Make Sure You Get a PPI!
At GuysWithRides, we believe a pre-purchase inspection (“PPI”) is a mandatory part of buying a collector car. A great looking car on the internet will still have its flaws and that’s why you need to insist on a PPI before you buy. 

In his latest video, Rudy walks you through the PPI experience last week using GuysWithRides’ new partner,, to provide a detailed inspection on our project 1984 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz Hardtop.
