      Post pics of vehicles with specific features you wanted to purchase, but could never find.



      I'd commit many crimes for that E36!

      I know I'm crazy to want one, but decent ones of these seem rarer than hen's teeth.

      Always wanted a 2CV.

      Only 2 pictures of this car in all of photobucket. About 10,000 made in a 2 year production run from 1972-73.


      Also the 75-80 GM H-bodies. (Monza, Skyhawk, Starfire and Sunbird) Couldn't find one photo of any of the 4 versions on photobucket.

      Charcoal grey, all stock 300ZX TT is the car that I've always wanted, but never owned. At this point I don't know how many good examples are left to buy

The BRZ will kill you though due to a lack of power, and now Accord V6's are over powered. This place cracks me up.

      I like pearl on some cars but it just doesn't work well here.

      2003-05 Focus with 2.3 duratec instead of 2.0 zetec and manual. Super super hard to find. Usually find 2.0 and manual.

      Most of you guys like Grand Prix White S2000. But my dream S2000 is Platinum White Pearl with red interior (seats). This is a MY2009 (last production year) only color.

      I wanted black, I settled for green. But i had given up hope that this car existed in a condition I would want to buy one in:

      Along those lines I always wanted a MK1 Golf. I never see them for sale. I like the old diesel Rabbits too, but the ones I did manage to find did not run and in terrible condition.

      When shopping my GTI, I was seriously disappoint to find no silver or any other interesting colors seen on the German palette. I settled for CSG instead. Also, I wish I had the Dynaudio on my Sunroof/Nav package.

      Always had a boner for one of these... looked and looked for an 85-86 in good shape with the RS 5.0 package, but none existed in my area so I ended up with a less cool looking Mustang LX 5.0 instead.

      I still want one to this day... just love these frikkin things.

      This is a Focus ST right? I found one in my car searches that's at a reasonable price.

      http://cleveland.craigslist.org/cto/3177282136.html

      Has 180,000 miles ans drives great. It is a manual transmission. There is no rust on the car, but does have some dings on it. The air conditioning is cold. Tires do not have much tread. It has been a reliable daily driver.

      I actually prefer the green to black on that car. To me that's the perfect color for lots of 90s sporty sedans: Maxima SEs, G20ts, etc.
