      I am confident you are wrong, but instead of illustrating why, I will just make disparaging remarks about your reading comprehension.

      Sold it about six months ago...it was my baby for eight years, but the costs of upkeep on a 28-year-old car were getting on the high side relative to how little it was driven. I'd rather have someone take it and enjoy it, instead of mothballing it and letting it gather dust.

      It was left in good hands, but of course I still miss it

      Regret? Not so much. I miss it a whole lot though.

      "Wilbur", my 1969 Mercedes 250, with a rare 6cyl/manual combo. I scored that car for $1500 and it needed nothing. My only gripe was that the manual steering was kind of a bear in a car like that. It was even a super clean Colorado car, and I found it by accident right in town. There was something so cool about cruising along in that thing, staring at the star on the hood, while listening to 50's music on AM radio. It was about the classiest $1500 car on earth. I sold it for $3k and my friends and I spot it once in a while driving around the city.

      Here's another I wish I still had.
      Bought it for $3500 in '01 or '02, sold it for $3000 a few years later.

      Not so much regret, but the only car i sold that i actually miss. Tremendously at times.





    25. 11-11-2011 09:17 AM #95
      1986 Fiero GT, 4 speed manual. Bought it from the original owner with about 88k miles on it. Original everything, great condition. It was an absolute blast to drive, everyone loved it, and was the easiest car to work on that I've ever owned.

      It was needing some suspension work that would have cost a few bucks, and at the time I wanted money for a ring to propose to my then-girlfriend. Well the girlfriend turned out to be a witch, and I still think about this car regularly. At least I got a really good price for it when selling.

      A couple of weeks before I sold it...

      I still miss my 1995 Infiniti G20t. It was a fun car to drive. The SR20DE was bulletproof, never had any issues with the engine, tranny (no 5th gear pop out) or with the LSD. I owned it over 6 years, put 136,000kms on it over that time. It was in great condition, no rust and everything worked. Well, almost to the end. A/C crapped out, shocks needed to be replaced, check engine light for one of the o2 sensors. I didn't want to put more money into it so I traded it in on the Fusion. It did leave me stranded 3 times though. Fuel pump, water pump, and starter. Oh well, still liked driving it.

      Second car I ever owned and my first manual transmission - 87 VW Fox. It was a salvage title and I bought it in 93 or 94 for less than $2k. Low miles (probably cause it sat around after it was flooded). I had it through my final 3 years of college. I slid it into a snow bank and another flood and that SOB still ran like a tank. I wouldn't be surprised if its still out there somewhere.

      Little old of a post but I'll chime in as well.

      Miss the most and to this day need to find another one: (I saw it for sale on LS1Tech.com a few months ago)



      2004, 6spd Manual, LT headers, catless mids, SLP Loudmouth catback. Went 13.0@111 I was 19.

      I am starting to miss this one as it was a great car, but also my first brand new car. I was 23 when I bought it.



      2010 TDI, 6spd manual, Vogtland Coilovers and '10 GTI Detroit wheels.

      I only regret it because I know what happened to the car and I guess the next owner did not take good care of it I had an opportunity to maybe buy it back didn't really get too excited when I saw the pictures of how neglected it was.

      I took the money and bundled it into a downpayment on my first house tho, so it was a smart move in the financial scheme of things.

      This car however I really didn't need to sell, but it paved the way to another Avant, and then eventually I had enough cash to get my TTS.

      I do know this car is well cared for though so maybe someday it will come back to me

      I already posted in another thread about seller's remorse. I sold my 88 Samurai a few years ago, to buy a Scirocco. Worst mistake ever.



      This is how it looked when I sold it. We put a lot of time and effort into this old girl....engine swap, a few different lifts until we found a setup we liked, ARB winch bumper. Old girl was quick and agile, and would go places many other trucks couldn't go. She had some rust holes; definitely wasn't pretty, but she was reliable and easy to work on.

      I miss that little truck.
