None... I still own my first car. I still plan on owning it for many years to come and I hope to have the G8 for a very long time as well.

I've given away one rusty beater car and sold a sweet crx to a friend. Everything else I still have including my first car. I'll never sell it.

89 Camaro RS, only had a 305, but it had a posi rear end and glass pack exhaust. I'd probably have an LS1 swap in it by now if I still had it. Sadly I don't even have any pics of it.

Guy at my work had a 78 TA he was trying to sell. I dont remember the engine/tranny combo, but I know it ran mid 12s. The exterior and interior looked like total crap though. Needed a lot of restoration. I didnt think I would ever want to do a resto to a 78 TA. Even though that is one of my favorites since that is the year of the Bandit.

He only wanted $4K for it, and I actually had that kind of money sitting around at the time. Id buy it in a heartbeat if I could do it again.

I guess out of the cars Ive owned and sold, there arnt any I'd say "got away" from me, but if I had to pick one it would probably be the wrx. I dont regret selling it, but I do still miss it from time to time. If I had it to do over again, I still wouldve sold it.

I had an 86' Camaro, but it was only a V6.

Also had a 91' T/A but it had a bad oil leak.

Do miss my Beretta but I do love my Grand Prix.

1969 Mach 1 w/428 and AC - California car.

Sold it to pay bills in 1994 and didn't get half what it was worth even then. Killing myself nowadays seeing what a rusty shell goes for, let alone a near perfect example.

If I'd just killed the wife and kids and kept the car, I might be out on parole already.....(just musing.....)

Either my 92 Jeep Cherokee Sport or my 95 Thunderbird. Both were dead nuts reliable, and I am back looking at XJ's again. I really miss my SVT Contour, but towards the end it started to act up and scare me a little.

My 88 Iroc. It had a 350 bored to 355 with all forged internals and 20,000 on the engine. Had drag shocks and a new paint job(wich wasn't the best). I put some drag lites on it that made it look even better. Ran 13.7 on motor and 12.66 on 150 shot spinning the tires.
The last month I had it I put a brand new trans and stall in it and also a brand new rear end. So I dropped almost $4,000 into it and ended up selling it for $4,000 because it was due for emissions(no cats or emissions equipment) and i was kinda low on money. The last I heard some kid split it in half.
