What vehicle that you once had do you wish you STILL had? Could be anything on wheels or tracks.

I had a 2004 Honda VFR Interceptor (V4) motorcycle with Staintunes exhaust...the most beautiful vehicle sound you've ever heard. Single-sided swingarm, just enough horsepower...MAN I wish I still had it.

1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS. Was passed down to me by my grandfather when he passed away in 1992, after he owned it since new. I drove it for a couple years but could not afford the upkeep, insurance, speeding tickets, etc as was just a poor university student. I ended up selling it in 1995, and it paid off my university costs.

I wish I kept it as I miss not having what he left me and also regret that they have become very desirable in the past 25 years to the point I could never afford to purchase one. Actually all air cooled 911's are now priced out of sight.

This makes me cry. 911RS Pricing

1965 Chevy Nova, white station wagon. Manual three on the tree shift, great car. Plenty of fun times.

Also I got rid of my 2008 Ford F150 Black truck with 8ft bed, single cab to get my current Jeep Wrangler 2018 JL. I kind of regret getting rid of the truck, but did not have space for it since grandchildren were coming in the picture. At that time we were expecting one, now we have 3 and expecting one more. All girls...... Great fun.

I'll never own any performance car/truck either. I'll end up losing my license and I know it. Too much power.

Uncle Ben's speech in Spiderman would be lost on me.

I often miss my 2008 MazdaSpeed3. It had a stack of bolt-ons and a tune from Cobb. Car was super quick, hauled around the kids, and had a ton of space in the back for groceries or a trip to Home Depot. I always regretted getting rid of it.

I saw it for sale on Craigslist a few months ago and it looked sad and neglected. I did consider buying it for their low asking price, but I know I had pushed 25psi through that thing more than once on the stock turbo. Thinking more about the other owners doing the same and getting their nasty ass sweat in the seats just turned me off and I decided to keep it as just a fond memory.

I don't have any pictures of it but it was a 1971 Chevy Blazer. It had a 4 inch lift, 35 inch tires (big for the day), a rear locker (this was 25 years ago before they were popular), and a 455 Olds motor in it. It was painted bright red. It was named the Beast and it would go anywhere I pointed it. I traded it in on my first Jeep, a 1997 TJ. The Jeep is what got me into rock crawling so I guess it was a trade-off.

I'd love to have it back...

I've had a BUNCH. from 69 camaros to 77' trans am, to CJ7's, some C10 trucks, powerwagons.. both 2005 to 2016 models.. 2007 mustang GT procharged 500whp

Its funny but this car sticks in my head.. 1990 honda prelude si 2l n/a. manual trans. 5 speed I loved this car... purchased it new.'

It was the pinnacle of luxury, technology, and speed in 1990. The last year before the body style change. Im pretty sure it was a 91' (hard for me to remember) but honda changed the body in like 91 or 92.

Every decade had its car.. and this was it.

I had an 89 and a 93. Did you ever get into any of the Prelude forums?
