Who writes this nonsense? For many of these, the "fixer-upper" you can buy at that price is a rolling rustbucket which would take years to repair.  The 914 engine was not a Beetle engine, it was used in the Bus and the 412. And a Citroen 2CV? Really? Why not throw in a Yugo? Some of his suggestions are sound, but overall this rates a C at best.

The editors need to start validating there writer's articles a little better.  The articles pertaining to cars are riddled with BAD, and REALLY bad articles, in which the author did either NO research, or a very poor job of research.  Go buy a "classic" used Mustang for $1000 and you'll spend another $20,000 to get it close to "crusier" status, which ISN'T complete restoration...Most 'Stang fans know that, and opt to pay $10 - 15 thousand and go from there, unless they are builders themselves...just too much time and expense otherwise...later

Re;  KYSpeakerGeek....
Shelby Cobra?  Perhaps you missed the key word in the title.
Affordable!

I like any  camaro or firebird convertable you can find from th 1980- to the early 1990s ,classic car insurance is cheap and in PA classic plates are forever and even the V8 cars get 27mpg on the road and they are reliable fun to drive cars  love mine , keep an eye out for a nice low milage one,they arnt that much to buy yet,  keep an eye on the Volocars.com website they sell classic cars  they are near  Chicago well worth the trip

No '62 Cadillac?  No '57 Corvette?  A Javelin, Citroen whocareswhatitscalled, Beetle, Datsun, Fiat and MG?  These are your best classic cruisers?  Best classic eyesores, perhaps.  Never seen a Shelby Cobra?  I've seen a few of these lists with a couple of bad picks, but this is just pitiful.  Unique, but still pitiful.

There's a Citroen 2CV, but no BMW 2002? Le wut? Don't give me that "BMW's aren't affordable" because they actually are as I've discovered. Also, the MGB did NOT overcome the typical reliability woes common of british sports cars of the day.
