      Yeah I see lots of H3's but rarely do I see an H2.

      As for late 90's Toyota Camrys that someone else mentioned. Those actually are being shipped to places like Africa and Eastern Europe where they are worth way more money.

      Are there car thieves running after all of them?

      I haven't seen a Sirocco on the road since the Clinton Administration.

      E30's. Most in the midwest have rusted away or are to far neglected. Seems every one I see has an enthusiast behind the wheel because I usually get the wave or nod.

      The TV show: Sports Car Revolution actually had some shows where they were modding one for track use.

      Intrepids and LH Cars in general. The 2.7L was sure a loser of an engine.



      I had forgotten about the Diamante! Does anyone remember the '04 with its weird "nose job"?



      On the other hand, I had thought the Audi 80/90 had completely disappeared, yet they seem to be coming back in my area in the past few weeks. Recently there were some people on TCL asking about them - a weird coincidence?

      That's where they all went. All those washed up Cali people buying them a few years old for pennies.

      I remember that, weren't they trying to benchmark a 996 Carrera's time around their local track or something like that?

      Completely forgot about that facelift, I don't think I have ever seen one.

Id like to see more Audi Coupe Quattros out on the road . Not something you see often.

      Havent seen a Mazda Navajo in years, and while they wern't nearly as common as Explorer's they were at least as common as say a Trooper or Pathfinder.



      1st & 2nd gen Dodge Intrepids seemed to have vanished. They were extremely popular and I still see tons of Tuaruses, Buick Century and even the "LHS" version of the LH cars but have not seen any Eagle Vison's, Intrepid or the Concordes in ages.



      VW Eurovan, I know these were not hot sellers but I miss seeing them. The only van I would have owned if they still made them. Oddly enough Vanagons are still everywhere.
