Good credit? Bad credit? No cash? No problem. We checked Craigslist and found a dozen vehicles for sale in Kalamazoo for under $1,000.

So, you might need a more-than-gently used car if you have a new driver. Maybe a college student in the family wants wheels on campus and the cash is tight. Over mileage on a lease? Park it and rack up the miles on one of these wrecks. Perhaps you've moved to Kalamazoo from a major metropolitan city where you didn't own a car and used public transportation so you need a ride. Now may be the time to pick up a cheap Winter car because they don't go down in price this time of the year like snowsuits.

We scoured Craigslist and a few junkers, clunkers, jeeps and jalopies priced at under $1,000. A cool grand could get you a new (to you) whip, buggy, hardtop, hatchback or heap. Take a look at what we found in Kalamazoo.

  • 2000 Honda Accord $600

    "Sadie" is getting on in years but this old girl needs a new home. She doesn't get around as well as she used to and needs some tlc.

    Clean title. Runs and drives, but has a hole in the radiator. Seems like there's one more thing...

  • 1994 Chevy Extended Cab $700

    Needs a motor and transmission, so, it's basically a life-sized Matchbox car. Oh, and "husband took off some parts he wants."

    A 5-speed manual, this baby has the 2.2L engine. No extra charge for the super-amazing custom paint job.

  • 1993 Chevy Caprice $500

    At 163,000 "well maintained" miles, this may be the pick of the litter with a 305 v8.
