That is basically it, and in our experience, there were no more than 48 hours between application and our first drive for both Uber and Lyft, making it a very enticing option if you’re in need of quick work. As it is rather easy to set up your driving job with Uber and Lyft, you probably want to know how much can be earned!?
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.
It’s a common misconception that Subaru’s EJ line of engines can be powered solely by vape. The neat thing about Subaru’s used engines is you can find any old 99-09 Forester, Legacy, Impreza, Outback, or even Baja in the USA and under the hood you’ll most likely find an EJ25.
The Japanese manufacturer’s cars are efficient and fun to drive mostly thanks to their revolutionary SkyActiv-G engine technology. Mazda isn’t resting on its laurels, though, and is preparing a whole new generation of SkyActiv-X powerplants. These new engines will be able to use extremely lean fuel mixtures like the homogeneous-charge compression-ignition engines.
The earlier models are 10A, though you won’t find many of those floating around in the States. The 12A, and the more recent fuel-injected models are 13B, are found in any Craigslist Special RX7. Simply take that baby out, build it to your heart’s desire, and swap it into any project where engine bay space is on short supply.
GM’s dedicated electric hatchback currently delivers up to 238 gasoline-free miles according to the EPA. The Bolt EV owes this impressive figure to its 60 kWh lithium-ion battery and a 200-hp permanent magnet electric motor combo. Its starting price currently reads $37,495, but the available $7,500 federal tax credit will cut it down to just under $30,000. The Chevrolet Bolt has obviously taken care of the range and economy, but there’s still one looming issue that makes it a niche vehicle of sorts: the dreaded state of current supercharging station infrastructure.
Sure, car manufacturers have their own test car drivers but they tend to be professionals who are into professional driving their whole life. However, there is a whole other type of factory test drivers. If you have a college degree in automotive or automotive engineering or have been in the automotive industry for years, you can actually land a job as a factory test driver. In short, you could drive prototypes of upcoming vehicles, affect the tune of the finished product and enjoy it all while simply driving in different conditions.
One thing used engines from Subarus were practically made to do is power Volkswagens. Beetles, Westphalias, buses, Transporter trucks, even Synchros can adapt 2.5 Subaru used engines with ease. The original mills had well under half the power of even a stock EJ, and most people report an increase in gas mileage as well. Subaru reliability, classic Volkswagen style, what’s not to love?
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that used engines from Pontiac sedans can fit in just about anything that uses a transaxle. It’s also one of the most common used engines in the world with over 25 million produced to date. It’s been rated one of the best engines of the 20th century, so yeah, it’s reliable.
There’s only one place to find these used engines: the venerated Honda S2000. That means someone will have to wreck one and extract its beating heart for you to commit automotive debauchery. But act fast: Honda only built about 110,000 for you to choose from, and we can already think of 50,000 perfect uses for an F20C.
Sure enough, there are plenty of kit cars and replicas for sale right now that are going for less than $30k! You could be driving your dream car tomorrow and unless you’re an absolute stickler for detail, you probably won’t even notice the difference!
Road Maintenance is not something you would only see in a movie. Seeing a truck with a plow is a thing. See, after landing an agreement with the district you may be involved in road maintenance. Sure, the work is seasonal and in areas with a lot of snow, however, before starting, some investments have to be made.
Now, this is not something I expected to reach this list of driving jobs, but here it is. It’s actually quite common especially in massive cities. You know, where people have more important things to do than feed their pets and drive them to the vet in time?
