89 nissan pathfinder se two door......
1992 Toyota Supra targa 7MGTE
most fun of a car I ever had, I picked up it in highschool from a good friend for a steal, and as a bonus he helped me find a much lower mileage 7MGTE motor and we did the swap at his house before he gave me the keys
it was an automatic but I didnt mind, the targa part made up for that.
Ive been on the hunt for an unmolested one around my area/nearby for years but never had the cash at the right to to snag up one as another project
Easy thread for me. I regret selling just about everything.
1988 Toyota Celica All-Trac - It had a blown radiator. Should have been easy to fix but i was lazy.
2006 Subaru Legacy GT - I traded it in because we needed a car that could haul our dogs around
2007 Subaru WRX Wagon - Traded it in because we needed a car that could haul our dogs and new baby around.
Notice the trend.
I miss all my few cars I have had (cept for the 06 RL cause mom has that and I can see it anytime I visit).
96 Miata Special Edition
99 Maxima (I did all the work on) it was pretty modified in OEM+ fashion no rice except for stupid blue led bulbs in all the parking lights
and of course my 04 350Z
But my 11 S4 makes me very happy
This one, picture taken at the dealer the day I picked it up. 2006 Cayman S, kept it for almost 3 years/33K miles. Sold it because that's what I do, move on to other cars, and I also began worrying about upkeep costs. But what a sweet drive it was and I most certainly wouldn't mind having another some day.
2012 Porsche Carrera 991
'92 Corrado VR6.
I had been driving my mom's hand-me-down '85 Accord LX sedan. A drunk lady turned in front of me and insurance totaled out the Accord. I was looking at Integras, Mazda MX6s and Probe 24Vs. My mom sent me to a leasing company she did business with. A client's son had just handed in a Volkswagen she thought I should see. I resisted for a couple weeks because I was sure I didn't want a VW, but failing to find anything I liked I relented. The moment I saw it I got a knot in my stomach. Dark green, BBS wheels, beige leather interior, etc., etc. One test drive around the block was enough, and I bought it.
It was the car that really got me into cars. I got a Neuspeed p-chip for it - the kind you had to actually pry off the circuit board of the ECU and physically swap out - and a short ram (I loved how that thing sounded). I had all sorts of plans for it that far outstripped my bank account.
One day, I wasn't looking and made a left turn into a lady and smacked things up but good. Amazingly, insurance didn't total the car. Over $14000 in repairs later and the car was actually as closes to new as it could get. I had several shops remark that if I hadn't told them the front end had been rebuilt they wouldn't have known.
Though it still drove great there were persistent issues especially with the electrics. My bank account couldn't keep up with the repairs, so I sold it for $10,000. Six of that paid off the note, $1500 funded a trip to Europe to visit my GF who was studying at the Sorbonne, and $2500 went down on a new '97 Civic EX coupe.
If I had the knowledge then (not to mention the Internet and VWVortex) that I do know I probably could have DIY'd my way through a lot the lingering issues instead of relying on shady mechanics and dealer SAs.
I missed that Corrado terribly. I eventually traded the Civic on a '03 GLI 24V which was totaled in a flood and got me into my R32. I don't miss the Corrado so much any more.
I miss my 1979 924. That thing was only one of 500 made for racing homologation. It had a braking system from a 928. The Porsche factory did many nice upgrades to the car which weren't seen on other cars until 1980. It was by far the most amazingly nimble RWD car I've driven. It was light, handled like a dream, and was a LOT of fun to shift. I loved driving that car and I miss selling it.
"We're society's crowbar. They hate us, they never want to acknowledge the dirty jobs they give us to do, but when the job is done they never throw us away - they just slip us back in the toolbox until they need us the next time. And there will always be a next time."-Jim Hooper. Beneath the Visiting Moon: Images of Combat in Southern Africa
I've regretted selling my 1990 Accord because it was a coupe, manual, and rust free in excellent condition. I sold it to a friend for $1800 in 2005 and thought that 180,000 miles was a lot. I could easily sell it for $3000 now.
All of my other cars I've had good reasons for selling, but I miss them. For example, my e30 325e drove really, really nicely when I sold it, but it had rust issues and fuel lines and tank kept springing leaks (dangerous). But I still wonder if I could have somehow fixed it cheap.
My CRX needed some work but it was amazingly clean and rust free. I sold it because I wasn't prepared to invest the couple grand that it needed. It had well over 300k miles, and I sold it for $2700. So no regrets really, but I probably won't ever have another.
My Neon I needed to sell because of a move, but that car was shockingly fun to drive (quicker and better handling than my current Protege, and even the CRX).
Sold: 86 240 DL 4MT+OD, 00 Protege ES, 87 325e, 93 S-10, 91 CRX Si, 99 Neon ACR, 90 Accord Coupe.
I regret selling the 10 356s I bought for $1,000 from my bank in the early '80s. I flipped them to a junkyard the next day for $2,000 and have been kicking myself for the last 20 years.

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
