Surely Someone Needs a 3,000-Mile 1992 Ford Mustang 5.0 Convertible With a Manual

This Fox Body Mustang is dressed in a limited-run appearance package that debuted mid-year in ’92, referred to as the Summer Edition. It features 16-inch Opal pearlescent white wheels that match the interior and power-assisted convertible top, complimenting the Vibrant red paint job and a rear wing that replaces the luggage rack. Apparently, less than 3,000 Summer Edition Mustangs were built in 1992, making it exceptionally rare; this one is even more so as it was optioned with a five-speed manual transmission. 

The Auto Hunter listing gives a Carfax report of the Mustang and shows that while it may not have driven many miles, it’s been transported across the

It’s been over two weeks since I’ve given an update on Project Krassler, a diesel manual Chrysler Voyager designed in the U.S., built in Austria, and sold in Italy before making its way to Germany. I bought it sight unseen for $600. My vision when I initially asked my Nürnberg-based friend Andreas to purchase the van on my behalf — far from my Michigan home — was to fix the machine, somehow get it past Germany’s vehicle inspection, turn it into a mobile apartment, and then live in the van as I road-trip through

The Diesel Manual First-Gen Volkswagen Touareg Is What Off-Road Dreams Are Made Of

The first-generation VW Touareg is an epic machine. Some say that it — along with other impressive engineering feats like the Bugatti Veyron supercar, Audi A2 fuel-sipper and VW Phaeton luxury sedan — was part of Ferdinand Piëch’s onslaught of automotive “moonshots” meant to show the world that VW Was The King of automobile tech. The Touareg is included in this elite class because the SUV was ridiculously well-equipped and offered real off-road chops thanks to locking differentials, tons of ground clearance and short overhangs. Add a stick shift to the equation and you’ve got a true enthusiast’s SUV. One that I want badly.

Every now and then, I realise that this world is filled with amazing manual-transmission automobiles that don’t get nearly enough credit in the enthusiast community. Take my diesel manual Chrysler Voyager, for example. Would I ever buy an automatic, gasoline Voyager? No way in hell. Most
