    ...and wish you could buy back?

    Me:

    My 1994 Lincoln Mark VIII (Sitting in the current owner's driveway since 2006; I think it hasn't moved)
    My 1997 GT
    and my 1997 Grand Marquis GS HPP. Mostly because I replaced it with something that needed a $200 repair every other week.

    Wife made a critical accounting error and it had to go. That was my baby and project I bought from the original owner in 2002. I sold it last may and it still pissed me the **** off.

    The cynic in me wonders if it really was an "accident" but still awful that it had to go.

    Yeah tell me about it. She actually broke down and started crying rather hard when it left on the trailer. First time I have seen her broken over any of my vehicles so I truly believe she made a mistake. She can be rather spacey at times.. whaddya do. Looked bone stock but it wasn't. Not even close.. my wallet can attest.

    Still have all my cars/trucks. Only thing I've gotten rid of was a Suzuki Z400 that I swapped for a Bushmaster AR-15. I miss that wheeler pretty often..

    Wish I still had the 98 blown f150.
    Was getting old and going to need a bunch of work soon though.

    Believe it or not, my 1988 Plymouth Horizon. That car was light as a feather and the 4 banger had a ton of torque. It was a lot of fun to drive and if I had it back I'd strip it and make it a real pocket rocket.

    1992 GMC Typhoon - I miss this truck, and even though it was a pain in the rear to work on, it was a huge rush to drive.
    1997 SS Camaro SPL #2777 - sold to start family - good fun, engine compartment was not fun.
    1989 Toyota MR2 - not fast, not flashy, Solo II traffic cone killing fun though.

    Typhoons are nasty!! A friend of mine had one and that thing was a beast. He says all the time selling that was the worst mistake ever.

    I guess I'm the only one that doesn't wish I had any of my previous cars back. Every one was sold for well more than I thought they were worth, so I was never disappointed to see them leave.

    Regret selling my first 94 and my first 99. Both were VERY clean cars.

    Wish I could have my 95 Bronco back (in the shape I sold it in, seen it recently and it's trashed)

    But really, I think I'd rather have my Powerstroke back.
