There’s a monthly repo auction near me. Almost all of them are 100+k miles, not well taken care of, and dumb soccer moms drive up the price. Like wow a shitty 4-cylinder Dodge Journey with 130k miles, why the fuck are you bidding over 5 grand for it. Complete clown show

Might be difficult to find zaporozhets (jalta) without importing.

n Finland in 1965, Jalta cost 4,290 marks, or 7,660 euros (in 2013, factor 1.7855).

The functionality of Yalta was presented by organizing a trip of a few cars from Finland to Yalta on the Crimean peninsula, where the distance accumulated was more than 2,500 kilometers.

In the first few market years in Finland, Jalta sold quite well, but after that sales dropped. In 1965 and 1966, more than 500 Yaltas were registered in Finland per year, but after that sales declined due to technical problems and a bad reputation [3]. In 1967, less than 100 cars were sold, and the following year only 10. In its best years, a total of slightly more than 1000 Yaltas were on the roads of Finland.

At the end of 1969, 973 Jalta cars were registered in Finland. As a brand, it was also rare from the point of view that none of them were registered as vans.

I know a guy, his zapo is an absolute piece of shit though, suspension was completely shot and the engine was making suspicious sounds.
Back then I wasn't as autistic as I was nowadays and my skills in commie shit weren't as honed. Nowadays I probably could turn it into a running, driving car, but parts availability is a massive issue.
Back then you could get them from Ukraine, nowadays I wouldn't be so sure about it

The breaking point for me working on a dock was being responsible for taking out the trash around the fuel pumps where drivers would refuel after a trip. Piss jugs everywhere, mostly leaking. God damn it was disgusting and everyone just shrugged like it was to be expected, you'd do it for 2 years until a new hire shows up then you push it onto them and they either quit or work 2 years and push it on the new hire.

My secret tip is the first gen Volvo S40 with 1.6/1.8/2.0 NA modular petrol engine. It never breaks, the engine can easily reaxh 500 000 km with only basic maintenance (oil and timing belt) It has great rust treatment. However, I would recommend you to find a 1999-2000 model. Since the earlier ones (95-98) have Renault M3P MT, they are prone to failure, the newer models from 1999 already have improved M5P and at the same time the engine doesnt have a VVT (models from cca 2001 have it). Even though it helps with fuel economy, it's an additional break point.

Oh and they are at the bottom of their prices, so they are great value for money.

Oldfag here, I remember owning a CLK430 back when it was new, car ran beautifully and the dealer treated you like royalty the entire time it was under warranty. As soon the the warranty was over everything started to break and the dealer treats you like a 2nd class citizen because you decline a $200 oil change.

Then I owned a BMW 335i E92, again the car ran beautifully up until the point the warranty expired, then it became a junk as if I bought it from the 5th owner who was teenager.

German cars use so much plastic and rubber in places that can't handle plastic and rubber and then charge hundreds of dollars to replace those parts even though they are made for pennies in China. Unfortunately the Japs and Americans have followed this trend over the last 15 years and now no one is safe.

Probably because all the good road going yotas have been turned into mud pigs and crawlers. Same thing with 4x4 samurais. Xterras are a largely unused platform off road partly because most are still in good enough condition to be road worthy for people commuting up north. They haven't really had enough time to reach total shitbox status where people can hack them up with no remorse. On the other hand I feel like I see a ton of 1st gen xterras off road funny enough. Give it another few years, and as 4runners and older jeeps start to dry up, you'll see more people going to 2nd gen frontiers and xterras to thrash.

The 13b keg alone is $7k from Mazda. Unless you're suggesting people use 40yo used housings and irons for a "race motor".
Also, you said 600hp before. Could it be that you're lowering the goalposts because I'm right? Funny how that works.

>ford rear end and t2 trans don't cost thousands
True, but even the $1000-1500 they will cost isn't insignificant when your budget is 10k.

Also, we haven't gotten into wheels (~1k for a set), tires (~1k for a set) EMS (~1500 for a decent standalone) or any other repairs you'll need to make to the 40 year old rolling shell.

Easy to fake the wear. When I buy new sets of tyres for my cars or bicycles, I snip off the vent spews and use a DA sander with about #180 to dress the tread. On cars it's to hide the camber, on bikes I do all the tread except the centreline.

A 500hp turbo or NA 4cyl just does not have a comparable lifespan compared to a LS V8. And that's just at daily street boost levels and not the constant 500hp kill mode. Fanboy all you want it's just science.

There are a whole bunch of ways to cheat emissions these days so the production or not thing is not an argument. Mercedes can get 400hp out of a 4banger which is impressive but there's also a reason why they don't make any more than that.
