We’re in a golden age for vintage vehicles.

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.

1. 1992 Mitsubishi Strada L200 4×4

Itching to go off-roading in something a little different? You won’t find many of these on the trail. This Mitsubishi Strada is a Japanese-market 4×4 pickup that can seat five people in its spacious crew cab, and it’s powered by a dependable (if not very powerful) four-cylinder turbodiesel. With its 4×4 drivetrain, snorkel, and high ground clearance, it should be a capable rig for backcountry exploring.

2. 2003 Acura NSX-T

When it debuted in 1990, the NSX was a monumental car for Honda (Acura’s parent company). This mid-engined sports car featured an all-aluminum monocoque body, a first on production cars, and has since attained legendary status for its clean lines and superb performance. This low-mileage example looks practically new, and the “T” in its name refers to its removable top—an added bonus that makes this ride even more special.

3. 1972 Alfa Romeo Giulia 1300 Super 2.0L

An Italian sports car tuned in the Netherlands in the 1990s, this Alfa Romeo Giula benefits from some extensive upgrades under the hood, including dual Weber carbs, electronic ignition, and a revised cylinder head and pistons. It looks especially sharp with its deleted bumpers and unique Maifrini Mille Miglia wheels, and if the video in the listing is any indication, it has no problem tearing up freeway onramps.

4. 1979 Rolls-Royce Corniche Convertible

From its glossy wooden dashboard to its hydraulic self-leveling rear suspension, this Corniche oozes opulence. It’s a rare model—one of just 2,500 produced—and according to the listing, it was hand-built in Britain by Rolls-Royce’s subsidiary Mulliner Park Ward. On top of that, it has been impeccably maintained and shows just over 32,000 miles. Sure, you could pick up a new Cadillac, or even a modern Rolls, but nothing on a dealer’s lot is going to match the stateliness of this beauty.

5. 2017 Brunton Stalker

Another rare vehicle, the Brunton Stalker is a kit car modeled after the famed Lotus Seven, an iconic British open-top sports car that debuted in 1957 (and lives on today as the Caterham Seven). With its breezy cockpit and mashup of parts—it’s powered by a turbocharged 2.3L four-cylinder Ford engine paired with a Mazda six-speed manual transmission—it’s a little taste of history backed up by modern performance.
