1979 Peugeot 504
This Peugeot is the grail for a certain subset of eccentric auto enthusiasts. There are so few wagons on the road, even fewer with a manual transmission that this is automatically cool.
That this 36-year-old Pug has survived in such pristine condition is a testament to the owner, who has pampered it with regular maintenance from a marque specialist. This is a stunning car.
It’s probably painfully slow to drive. No matter. We’ve already (against spousal advice) checked into one-way flights to LAX.
It’s on Craigslist in Southern California for $5800 or offer.
