For 1970, the Cuda shed its fastback design and added a few engine options. The top engine was the 426 Hemi. Capable of 425 hp, the Hemi Cuda sucked air through dual Carter AFB four-barrel carbs sitting under a functional Shaker scoop. To handle its power, the ’70 Cuda had extra-heavy-duty front torsion bars with a spring rate of 124 lbs. per inch and a heavy-duty front stabilizer bar. Sitting out back were 148-lbs. per-inch rear leaf springs and extra-heavy-duty shocks. The 1970 Plymouth Hemi Cuda was built to run full out all day!
These RWD monsters are still somewhat pricey due to rarity compared to the sedan and coupe models, but you can expect to find some examples in the ballpark of $45,000. That’s really not bad at all though when you compare this car to the likes of the Porsche Panamera and wagon offerings from Mercedes AMG.
That said, the Grand National is one of the best factory sleepers ever made and you should be able to find one of these crazy cheap cars for around $20k, even though the average asking price seems to be MUCH higher.
Studebaker only built the Avanti for two years and sales totaled less than 6,000 units, but the car is amazing. The lines are unique and the interior is head-and-shoulders above any other car of the period. Studebaker had to build the body from fiberglass because trying to build such a unique car from steel would have been a daunting task. Power comes from 289 cu.in. V8 borrowed from the Studebaker Hawk lineup. Output topped out at just 240 hp; but, like the ’53 Vette, power is not the Avanti’s main reason for being on our list of hot cars.
They’re also pretty rare. Not exceedingly so, but they’re far less common than their GTI counterparts. Despite this, we found quite a few models from 2008 resting very comfortable around $10,000, which is an absolute steal for what you get. These crazy cheap cars are quick, affordable, sought-after, and very much respected in the automotive community.
We have covered a few North American hot cars, but we haven’t covered a North American built supercar. The one that comes to mind immediately is the Ford GT. We say North American built because the car was designed in the U.S., but built in Ontario, Canada.
What the hell are Event Services? Well imagine, let’s say, a team building event Wal-Mart made for a small team of their best store workers it could be 7 people or 400! They fly them to somewhere and your job is to welcome them at the airport and shuttle them further. Imagine driving journalists to a press conference someone organized in your city. Or driving workers to build a new building! The possibilities are endless.
It is difficult to calculate what an average taxi driver can earn annually. Yes, those in larger metropolitan areas definitely have a lot more work, but even in their case, it is reported that top salaries generally don’t reach much more than $40,000. In less developed areas, Taxi drivers can expect to earn up to $24,000. However, many argue that Taxi drivers do not report all of the tips they receive.
