Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. But if we all agree, then it becomes law. That’s how facts are born. This week, your task is to find the best cars that give you the warm and fuzzies every time you see them for less than $10,000 on eBay.

Here are the rules:

  • One entry per post.
  • Cars must have a realistic selling price under $10,000.
  • Cars must be operable/easily restored to running condition.
  • Completed and sold listings can be included.
  • You can add modifications, as long as it doesn’t go over the total budget.
  • Write a short reason why your car is the most beautiful car for less than $10,000.

Start here and find a car that makes every single one of your exes jealous.


Tavarish is the founder of APiDA Online and writes and makes videos aboutbuying and selling cool cars on the internet. He owns the world’s cheapestMercedes S-Class, a graffiti-bombed Lexus, and he’s the only Jalopnik author that has never driven a Miata. He also has a real name that he didn’t feel was journalist-y enough so he used a pen name and this was the best he could do.

You can also follow him on Twitter and Facebook. He won’t mind.
