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.

I've only had the Cavalier but my dad always talks about his black 69 charger that he LOVED. whenever we talk about the fastest youve gone or your favorite car the charger comes up hahah.

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.

I got one of those too.

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. :fu: 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.

To many to pick/choose from if I had to pick i'd say my first 1997 Camaro Z28 30th Annv. Edition, in close 2nd place the 2002 Z28 I had.

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.
