We’re in a golden age for vintage vehicles. Aside from the usual Corvettes and Mustangs that have held collectible status for decades, a whole generation of Radwood-era rides is finally getting its due (see the skyrocketing prices on ’90s Hondas, for example), along with other cars and trucks that have suddenly become enthusiast icons. Browsing today’s lineup of online car auctions gives you a front-row seat to all the action—and a relatively straightforward way to put one of these rides in your garage.

The Best Car and Truck Auctions
1. 1989 Chrysler LeBaron GTC Convertible
A late ‘80s Chrysler might not sound super appealing in theory, but this unique convertible might just change your mind. It looks sleek with its black-and-bronze paint scheme and mesh alloy wheels, and with its turbocharged four-cylinder and rare five-speed manual transmission (plus a few aftermarket upgrades), it should make for an engaging driving experience, especially with the top down.Get it
2. 1994 Toyota Land Cruiser
The 80-series Land Cruiser is a popular choice among overlanders and off-road enthusiasts for its reliability and capability in the dirt. This truck is a great example: At 257,000 miles, it’s still running strong, and it comes with a long list of desirable options, including locking front, center, and rear differentials and a roof rack for hauling gear. And with luxe extras like leather upholstery and power-adjustable front seats, you won’t be roughing it even if you leave the pavement behind.Get it
3. 1987 Dodge Shelby Charger GLHS
Another high-performance gem from the late ‘80s, this hot hatch is the product of a unique joint venture between Dodge and legendary race car driver and automotive designer Carroll Shelby. Shelby’s company took normal Dodge Chargers, modified them with a larger turbocharger, intercooler, and a whole suite of upgrades for drastically increased performance, and sold them to enthusiasts—but just 1,000 were made, including this lovingly cared-for example.Get it
4. 1977 Chevrolet K5 Blazer Cheyenne Chalet Camper
Want to be the coolest guy at the campsite? Roll up in this rig. It combines the body of a late ‘70s Blazer (already a beloved model) with a full camper in the back that includes a sink, stove, refrigerator, and even a flat-screen TV. With its 265-horsepower V8 and four-wheel drive, it’s definitely ready to get dirty, too.Get it
5. 1983 Toyota Land Cruiser HJ47
You could buy this truck just for its story alone: Originally from Australia, it was used by the Australian Army Reserve’s NORFORCE, a unit tasked with patrolling remote territory in northern Australia. This HJ47, or Troopy as they’re known Down Under, still retains signs of its military career, including a canvas top, jerrycans, and blackout lights (not installed). While it definitely has plenty of wear and tear, it’ll take you places that modern crossovers could only dream about.Get it
