i was thinking about all the vehicles me & my family have owned over the years and there are a couple that i wish we still had. one was a 68 bug...i learned how to drive a standard in this. thought they were kinda goofy looking when i was a kid but it would really be cool to have one now.

also my brother owned a "dukes of hazzard" challenger that to this day he still kicks himself for selling. even tho it was a project car, would still be fun to have.

the one i really liked was the 68 cougar which i always thought was the coolest car my dad ever owned. it was that weird looking green that was the same color as our refrigerator back in the day.

have any vehicles you wish you had back? maybe had a chance to buy or missed out on a great deal that haunts you to this day? post pics if you got'em & discuss!

Well, my dad considered cars only a form of transportation so there isn't a single car I would want that he had. My brothers and I all broke the mold, ever since I can remember we've worked on cars. So, if I had to pick one it would be my current car.

From my parents cars, I really loved the '86 Mercury Cougar they had. Charcoal grey with black leather, really a sharp car.

From my history, I really miss the '98 Wrangler I had. White with a tan top and tan interior, 4.0, 5spd, 3in lift, bock wheels with 35" bfg mud terrain's.

And although it was a project and needed some tlc, I never shoulda sold 93 GMC Typhoon. Had the front driveshaft removed and boost upped to 16psi, thing was wicked!

The only ones I would want back would be mostly for sentimental reasons.

'68 Mercury Cougar, black with the hand-crank sunroof - was one of my first cars
'86 Jaguar XJS, black with a Chevy 350 swap - last car my father had, I later got in a wreck with it then had to sell it to move up here to Dallas

Mine would have to be the car i still have, as my screen name says its all. 94 Aqua Formula. My very first car "im 22 now" dad bought it for me when i was 15. It was bone stock when we got it. Since then it is a heads cam intake 355 LT1 6 speed. Every pay check in high school went into that car, ended up putting 22k into. Had perfect paint, mint interior, sounded amazing and was gonna pass it down to my 3 year old son someday who adores it. but on Nov 17 2011 it got smashed by a drunk driver infront of my house. long story short got half my money back from it bought a 02 ws6 and got the car back for $400 bucks and just bought a 96 v6 firebird to swap everything over to.

My first vehicle - 1959 Chevrolet Apache pickup, short box, step-side. Needed a complete restoration, and a lot of TLC, but it came with an 80s 1/2 ton frame, 350, and T400. Loved that truck.

As for family vehicles, I would have to say the 1970 1/2 Camaro SS my dad used to own. Had a balanced/blueprinted 454, T400. He sold it for $2300 when I was 15 without letting me know :bang: Would have worked any job at the time to come up with the money.

As for my Camaro, I will never sell it. Like Bobs99SS, I have way too much into it, and I would never get that out of it. Owned it for almost 12 years as the 2nd owner (Had less than 2000 miles when I bought it). Will pass it down in the family some day.

Thinking about this and I can't believe I didn't list my high school car. I'm always looking for one but not real seriously. One day I would love to have another 1976 Trans Am with a t-10 4 speed. Ah the memories I had in that thing.

My 2000 Z28, I remember being in high school and daydreaming about how I would get one and what I would do to it. I put a lot of time and money in it for being a college student. Back then the LS1 was top of the heap for muscle cars.

My 1992 extended cab s10. It was lowered 2"-3" and painted Plymouth Prowler Purple. Really a simple modded truck with the 2.8/5spd. Woulda had an LSX swap for sure by now. Maybe I'll have another one day. My 98 Z28 keeps me busy. No time for other toys at the moment.

My geo metro lol. That thing ran hard over 300k miles on it great fuel milage. It was a great car . I beat the hell out of it. It ran on a 1/2 quart of oil for 30 miles, I hit a rock in the road that damage the pan. I ran it hot like 12 times and it still ran good. I was 15 when i had that thing, it was a 4 speed man. But some asshat stole it and strip it. It was found 48 housr later. Everything was gone except the frame and windsheild. I also had a 1985 trans am. When I was 17 my parents took it away and sold it because I got cought speeding. I passed my dad going 90mph showing off to a girl. When I got home he took my keys and drove off in it . I never seen it again.

I would take 3 cars back.. Two were my fathers and one was mine..

My dad had a 1969 Super Bee (Gold) 383 4 speed and also a 1970 Road Runner (Orange) 440 6 pack 4 speed.. I had a 1992 Camaro that I still miss to this day..

I just didnt have the money to do an LS1 swap and the little 305 couldnt keep up with all the other guys so I ended up getting my first LS1 to replace the Z28 which was a 98 T/A non WS6 that I honestly dont miss at all lol..

In the end though I am happy with my SOM WS6 that I was finally able to afford.. :D

Owned a 69 Pontiac Custom S about 13 years ago as my first car and had to sell it dirt cheap because I blew the 455 I put in it and had to move out of state. :(
Sold it to a guy in Kansas and I wish I could find it again.

Mine would have to be my 1998 Bonneville SSEi. So comfortable and could still get out of it's own way.

I had a 96 Talon TSi 4g63t with a Hahn Super 20g turbo, 6 bolt swap... It was tuned,cammed and slammed.... that fucker was so fast if it had wings it would have flown....440whp 28lbs boost and 11.20s @ 135... I sold it to buy my first fbody.. a 93 TA... 5 TAs later, I'm in my 99... I wouldnt trade my 99 for it but Id sure like to have it back..

I had a 95 TSi AWD and it was pretty damn fun. It wasn't as nuts as yours (stock turbo running 17psi, little exhaust work, intake, basic fuel upgrades) but I still miss it. Not to mention it looked so much better than 1G's and the ricer 96+ :D

1979 Pontiac Formula, sold it to buy the '81 Trans Am I have now. Regreted it after about 6 months. I did sell it to a good friend and he loved as much as I did. Told him If he ever wanted to sell it, give me first shot. Well, 12-13 years later I got the call I was waiting for, "I'm getting a divorce, gotta sell everything, do you still want it?" Hell yea, 1000.00 dollars to him and drove it home the next day. Still in storage for that "rainy day". I bought it my Junior year in High School so, alot of memories. If that car could only talk about those years! LOL

This one because its worth a ton today.

This one because it was a 7000 mile car that I had a ton invested in
