Want to go racing for relatively cheap? This very much NOT street-legal 1976 Volkswagen Scirocco racecar could be your ticket to weekend fun.

For $5,750, it's all yours. You get a recently rebuilt engine, BBS rims, and brand-new racing tires, according to the seller.

You will literally need to bring a trailer for this car -- it has no title and cannot legally be driven on the street.

Check it out here.

    The ad says 210psi on each cylinder - divided by 14.7psi (1 bar), that's 14.3:1 compression. That would be crazy - no pump gas there.

    I had a ‘75 Scirocco that I got in ‘77. It was tons of fun and very practical for my needs. It did have a tendency for things to fall off of the engine, though like the EGR valve and the air conditioner.

  • MaintenanceCosts Oddly enough, I bought a metal-roof convertible for a bit less than $20k last year. But it's not on your list; it's an E93 335i, manual, Sport package. Really really nice car to drive, and (while it's been a short time) it's been flawless so far.

  • Zipper69 Make the cat an integral part of the underbody, that the exhaust system leads into and out of, keeping it away from the Sawzall.
