I don't regret selling my 1990 Camaro, because I needed a reliable, fuel-efficient car that was comfortable.

But man do I miss it. I will definitely restore a 3rd gen when i'm more financially stable.

1992 Chevy Lumina Z34

Had all kinds of issues with the 5 speed tranny that could never be fixed due to lack of parts... but it was fast as hell, and just all around a bad ass car.

But I had to grow up someday.

tie between 2, my first car, 1986 Pontiac Sunbird SE and my 1990 Chevy Beretta Indy "yellow" I miss them both, my neighbor that bought the sunbird totally destroyed a very clean car then hit a deer and totaled it. my bro-inlaw has the indy and will not sell it back it's sat in his garage for 2 years now, and has not moved.

Probably my 67 Mercury Comet Caliente(basically same as a fairlane) with a factory 390. It was a rustbucket, but it was pretty quick. I have yet to ever see another one just like it. I also had a 79 AMC AMX and a 70 Monte Carlo project that I sold and totally regret looking back on it. I was just a dumbass teenager that didn't know what I had at the time....

I still look in the classifieds for those cars or ones like it....

Well...I havn't sold one...but my dad has always regretted selling is 78 Z28. He didn't have the money to fix it up, but I'm pretty sure he's either going to get the new one or find another Z28 just like his old one.

He always gets that look in his eye when he talks about that car

I never sold it, but my father did, a 1976 Chevy Vega. Original owner & in excellent shape too.
And for me, I miss the ZO6 rocket. But atleast I made profit out of it. lol

mom's Hyundai Pony... you could sit in front of it for one hour, watch it
rust and swear you were watching 5 years of time-lapse photography.

Sometimes I miss my Sunbird (my first car), until I think of the total
Return-On-Investment, Pricey (if not non-existent) mods, No utility, No
traction (who would think 140hp could cause so much torque steer?)

Never sold a car, but my dad sold his 1970 Dodge Superbee shortly before marrying my mom. It looked similar to this one:

My 87 Z24. I loved the digital guages, the V6 purr, and that thing was absolutely unstoppable in the snow!

My 1990 APV Lumina Van. It seen 120,000 well beat on miles on top of the 100,000 it had when i got it. It would do burn outs for days, drive through mud up till the doors, and haul me and 6 of my closest budies to go play paint ball every weekend. Maybe it was not the car, but all the memories the van had. My friends call it quote, "The big red brick of death."

my 85 s10. slow with a 2.5 and 4 speed manual, but i always wanted a truck and finally got one only to have to sell it 6 months later because i could not figure out what was wrong with it and i knew somebody who wanted it for a v8 swap.

well my first car was a 86 grand am I wrecked it but I enjoy my Z24 alot more (probably because its a vert)

the only car i've sold was a 93 cutlass vert I loved the leather interior in it but you couldn't work on that damn 3.4 DOHC

so can't say I regret anything really

My 86 Monte Carlo SS - she was a cream puff with t-tops. White paint with a maroon interior. Blackouts over the headlights and blinkers up front. 350 GM crate motor with headers and borla exhaust. Had some fun in that back seat too, I tell ya.. But I needed a car that was better on gas and useful in the winter ... and then I modded that cavalier so I still use a winter car!
