The best part? These cars are regularly being sold on Autotrader for between $22,000 and $30,000, which is great news because it means you still have money to replace the seats in this car. If you’re planning on using it daily, you should know that the biggest complaints about this car involve garbage seats and a meh interior, but that can always be remedied.
The Grand National came stock with RWD and a 3.8L turbocharged V6 after 1984, so there’s your ideal model year window. It was originally intended to be a very limited production run celebrating Buick’s back-to-back wins in the NASCAR circuit but was so popular that it lived on for five glorious years.
Depending on your location, driving someone’s pet around the city may pay a pretty penny. It seems that New York Pet Taxi service charges $90 to $190 for a pet trip to the vet and back. You should definitely try this out in your community. It may work. However, if you aren’t in New York or San Francisco, do not expect to be paid this much.
And then, daddy came home. In the final year of production, Buick gave us a car that history will never forget: The GNX (Grand National Experimental). While Buick marketed this car with 276 hp and 376 lb-ft of torque, it actually produced 300 hp and 420 lb-ft. These cars are rare and expensive, so don’t bother looking for one unless you’ve got the budget.
The 6-liter LQ4 V8 was designed to haul heavy stuff for thousands of miles. Something else it hauls is ass, since it has over 300 horsepower and 360 pound-feet of torque bone stock. Find one in early 2000s Yukons, Suburbans, 2500 and 3500 trucks, Express vans, even the Hummer H2. We’ll personally thank you if you kill an H2 for its engine.
Of course, buying a plow is a no-brainer. That could set you back by $3,000 or so. Depending on the deal you made with the district, you could pay that out in a few days. It is hard to precisely assess how much you can earn but some suggest $175 $350 can be made per work hour.
We can all agree that sportscars are the supermodels of hot cars. Just as there are supermodels that standout among their peers, there are hot cars that have the beautiful curves and the amazing lines that are every bit as visually appealing as they are aerodynamic. One of those cars is the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT.
If anyone deserves to have too much time and money on their hands, it’s someone who will stuff a Ferrari 458 engine into a Toyota GT86. Enter Ryan Tuerck, an American professional drifter from New Hampshire who ran the internet a few years back with his wildest creation to date, dubbed the GT4586.
This one may be one of the most interesting entries on the list. Sure, it sounds dull, but many did report that package delivery can be fairly lucrative. It is almost a running gag on the Internet that UPS drivers can earn $70,000+ per year. I am not sure if it is true, so please do share your experience in the comment section.
Power comes from a 5.7L V10 capable of 603 hp and 435 lb-ft of torque. The Carrera GT has a 0 to 60 mph time of 2.06 seconds and will hit 124 mph in just 9.25 seconds. It will finish the quarter-mile in 10.97 seconds at about 140 mph. The Carrera GT finished the Nurburgring Nordschleife in 7:28 minutes.
These cars are not your average fuel-sipping sedans and reliable Hondas, though. What we’re looking for here is a list of cars that have unique characteristics, or are far cheaper than people expect them to be, or even surprisingly cheap for what they are. Expect to find ravenous V8s, surprisingly bulletproof off-roaders, and some serious sleepers that will smoke a whole host of cars off the line.
Despite the Grand National’s fame and success in the 80’s, there is a surprising amount of people who have never heard of this car. Introduced in 1982 to roaring applause and exiting the stage in 1987 to a thunderous standing ovation with the GNX, the Grand National was the pinnacle of performance in the 80’s. We recognize this is kind of a silly thing to say about a Buick, but it’s absolutely true.
The 2019 Audi A3 Sportback e-tron won’t bring any substantial changes since the all-new model is likely to arrive in 2020. Regardless, the stylish and luxurious plug-in hybrid should still be one of the best hatchbacks 2019 is bringing our way.
