Mine was a 1972 Cutlass. 350 Rocket. Was a fun car, also had more than one friend with them so we raced them. It was fun and interesting stock to stock.

Don't have one....Only really owned three that I could call "mine". Maybe my Dad's 84 Toyota pickup I drove for a bit...rusty as hell, but it was an excellent running little truck. Those 22R's ran FOREVER!

'02 Camaro SS
navy blue metallic
6-speed manual
t-tops
chrome 10-spoke wheels
center mount exhaust

I got it brand new. It was fast, and the LS-1 sounded pretty damn good at full throttle. Damn I miss having a V-8. But when I got tired of the payments after a couple years, my brother took it over. He got rid of it about a year ago.

I miss my '99 Monte Carlo. Only knock on it was the color - I'll never own another black car. Impossible to keep clean.

I guess another knock on it was the phantom electrical problem that no one could figure out, which was why I got rid of it.

I had a black 1972(?) Plymoth duster slant / 6

I miss that car the most, but I traded it in for a Jeep eagle. I had more fun with that car than I should have, on a dune buggy esk joy ride listening to the Doors & Rolling Stones tunes slamming some beers with a friend. Well some how my head kissed the winshield and that was the end of the joy ride for us that night. Luckely we both had seatbelts on! I'm guessing the year was 1994 iirc?

I was in the car business for 10 years, so I owned everything I wanted at one point or another. At this point, I just drive a nice suv and have a big ass Ford truck super duty, to pull my toys, that I don't drive much. I can honestly say I don't miss any of them at this point. When summer rolls around, I miss the vett about three days a year, but not enough to go get another one.

I really do miss my Pylmouth duster, it wasn't quite as kick ass as yours tho.

What I really miss more than anything I have ever owned was my sunbeam Gibson Les Paul. :sulk:

You bastard! A 1970 'Cuda is my dream car! I had a guy in my neighborhood that had one for sale years ago when I was a teenager. But back then, I was too stupid to realize how badass it was.

1958 Studebaker Transtar Pick-up



http://assets.hemmings.com/uimage/7622022-425-0.jpg?rev=1


It was stolen from me when I lived in Kansas city. It had I believe was a 170 flathead engine. It wasn't running, but the body was very straight.
I worked at KCI airport for Braniff airlines at the time. I had it parked at the airport parking lot. They had to hook up and tow it off. Made me sick. I had big plans for it.

I had a chance to buy a police interceptor Bronco. It had, among other things, a sign on the dashboard that read "Disengage overdrive when in high-speed pursuit". It probably would have fallen apart on the drive home, but I wish I had bought it anyway.

And that 70 Cuda is a beautiful piece of machinery.

66 El Camino. Loved that car, esp the 283, man it was spunk, and I still get pissed about the day I sold it.

But having a vintage car is a lot of work.

I had a '72 El Camino with a flame paint job. I'm not a big fan of flames, but this one was done well. I rebuilt the engine and tranny, ran low 13's. Some drunk bitch t-bone me one night and that was the end of it. I had pictures of it at one time, but they have been long lost.

I traded a '74 Jeep CJ5 Renegade with a 304 V8 for it, straight up. Another one of my favorite vehicles.

It was very similar to this, except the base color on mine was gold metallic.

The car I miss the most is actually my dad's 1967 Plymouth Fury. (Same car as "Christine" but that was a funky 50s model.) The '67 model year was large and streamlined. It was like a fucking tank. Looked like this, but ours was blue.

I think the think was built with 1/4" steel plates like a warship. He bought it used in the early 1980s but it had been a one-owner car (one of those "little old ladies who only took it food shopping") and had something ridiculously low on it, like around 50k miles. I was already 6' tall at that age and I remember being able to stretch out across the backseat and just have my head and feet touch the doors. The engine was bigger than my Smart car, and the thing absolutely purred: you could set a glass of water on the dash and it wouldn't shake. It was strong and fast and was finally done in when the frame snapped. At the time, it would've cost $600-1000 to re-weld the frame, so he got rid of it. I still kick myself, 'cause I think if we'd fixed it I'd still be driving that damn thing...

I knew when I traded my first car for something more economical that I would kick myself for a long time. It has been 30+ years and my ass still hurts.

1968 Pontiac LeMans convertible. This pic is even the original color, just put 10" deep dish slots on the back.

Nice car, never owner a convertible. Friend had a 70 convertible Cutlass- It was kick-ass.

Pretty much the exact same truck with black leather interior. I ended up selling it when we first started seeing damn near $4/gallon gas and knew I should dump it before it goes to $5/gallon and it sounded like a real possibility.

a year after high school I was working at a Pontiac dealer and bought a '76 black and gold special edition (the first year of them) Trans Am new.
one of the last 200 455cid 4 speed birds ever built.
next would be a '68 vette coupe with a TWEEKED '71 454 cid 4 speed.
after that, would be a '69 GTO and '69 Charger.

ahhhhh, the wasted days of my youth.

Ive owned well over a hundred cars maybe over two hundred since I was 16, I think I miss my 62 impala that had 26,000 original miles the day I drove it home.

Also owned a 71 hemi cuda that was a rusted out pos but would FUCKING FLY, and drove awesome as long as you were going in a straight line.

64 lincoln continental. 67 camaro. I think I miss quite a few of them.

I wish I still had a switch ride too and probably will build another one day. For shits and giggles

1964 Chevy Impala SS. Large and in charge. Had a back seat so big you could dance in it. And yes, I did a lot of horizontal bop on it. Traded it at 246K miles.

I only miss the fact I no longer drive it... After college I parked my blacked out '87 Mustang GT in the shed next to my fathers black '69 Camaro convertible. Those 5.0 5spd fox bodies are stupid fun but that camaro pulls good ass. If either car could talk we'd both be in jail.
