      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.

      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

      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.

      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.

      The thread isn't about rarity, it's about cars you want but are hard to find. A lot of cars that weren't available in huge numbers have been ruined, dismantled, or ended up with an owner who will never sell it.

      98-99 Camaro Z28 with 1LE package. Crank windows, Konis on all 4 corners. 100 or so made in 98 and 50 or so made in 99. Would rather have a 99 because of the better rear diff. Found a 99 in a super rare color and couldn't talk the guy down on a somewhat reasonable price and walked away, Kicking myself since.

      A 99 in Red...
