Vehicles on KSL Cars with cult following

Car lovers: Call them hobbyists, enthusiasts or devotees, but we all know that they have their own cultural side. Cars can gain cult status by being rare, iconic or just plain weird. He is loved by communities of ardent fans who appreciate him. Buy one and you’ll have an exclusive set of wheels—and a whole new group of friends locally and online. Should you blame, you’ll always have a staunch fan base to sell. Presenting our list of cult vehicles at KSL Cars.

Vehicles on KSL Cars with cult following

Ford Fairmont Durango

This is not a typo. Ford commissioned a custom builder to convert the Fairmont Futura coupes into replacements for the Ranchero. Only about 200 were made, so they are very rare. While 200 of anything might mean you have to make your own replacement parts out of wood, the Fairmont Durango shares most of its creation with the more generic Fairmont Futura. This classic example has been sitting on KSL cars for weeks, waiting for someone to find out what it is.

Japanese market cars

Some cars in the Japanese domestic market look like nothing else in the states, making them extremely popular among fans. Due to the 25-year import rule, JDMs are rare. Most of them are right-hand drive, which is cool except for two-lane passing and drive-thrus. You can search KSL cars with the JDM keyword and get other options, including US spec cars with JDM engine swap.

Look for a Delica adventure van that has diesel all-wheel drive that seats eight and sleeps in. Mitsubishi stopped making them, and stopped selling vans in the US in 1990, but has sold billions worldwide so your international cult friends can help you find parts.

American Motors Corporation

America’s Fourth Car Company, which came into existence in the 1950s and spun out in the late 1980s, has a fan base that is still sociable, celebrating orphaned pacers, gremlins, and javelins. Any AMC will take you to the club like a 1967 American or a vintage Jeep. Search the keyword AMC on KSL Cars.

British Cars

Name one British car brand—and there’s a cult following for it. British Field Day is on August 28 at Liberty Park. Buy a British Racing Green MGB before then, and if you’re not inspired by your fellow Anglophiles, someone out there will get it off your hands. Or try a 1962 Land Rover ready to take on Marlon Perkins and shoot tranquilizer darts at rhinos. Well, if you’re not a pink-slip-carrying member of the British car cult, you can’t make fun of their dripping oil. See these search results for British cars.

french cars

Citroen and Peugeot left the US in 1974 and 1991, respectively, but not before selling some distinctive designs. Buying a Peugeot or Citroen will take you to a faction within a cult, which lets you speak French. Real French, not “Sorry My French,” you might be tempted to use when you’re broke. Look at a 2CV and imagine you’ll make all-new Amis Francais for less than $10,000.

Subaru WRX

Inspired by this rally, the turbocharged sedan had a cult following even before it went on sale in the US. The first ones to roll into the dock in 2002 are called Budgies for their headlight shape, followed by Blobies and finally Hawkeyes in 2006. They were built tough, fast and easy to modify. Their cult of racers are either selling their old project WRX or looking to start a new one. It’s hard to find one that hasn’t made aftermarket changes, so look for one with replacement parts.

Volkswagen Golf GTI

Old VW Beetles and buses have a cult following, but they’re so huge they’re almost mainstream. The niche Golf GTI debuted in 1976 as the Golf (known as the Rabbit in America) with more power and better handling. Eight generations later it’s still sold today, but the older models you can get, the better you are in this cult following. Here are the KSL car search results for the VW Golf GTI.

1991-1999 Honda Civic

Hot Rodgers rebuilt 1957 Chevys into street machines in the 1960s. The same happened with the Honda Civic in the 1990s. With aftermarket parts and tuning, these eco-travellers put V8 drivers to shame on drag strips. They were cheap to buy and ready to replace. In 2002, at least in Utah, the Hot Rodgers are gone (see WRX). However, not all of these are turbod, nitrous, and remapped, and you can find some stock versions ready to go.

Toyota 4x4s

This umbrella cult includes factions of new and old Land Cruisers, 4Runners and Pickups. Theories dictate that the older your model, the higher your status. The 1982 pickup (the Tacoma name hadn’t been used yet) will give you instant cult credit. Or drive a 1995 4Runner with oversized tires. You can find Land Cruisers and body styles of all years on KSL cars, but be prepared to spend some cash. It deserves to be respected among Toyota loyalists. KSL Cars search result for Toyota 4x4s.

If you haven’t converted to any of these car cults, no problem. There are many other cars to look at before you choose the right one on KSL Cars.
