    Default Which previously owned vehicles do you miss, and not miss, the most?

    As title states, which vehicles from your past do you wish you still owned (for sentimentality, not financial reasons), and which are you glad you'll never see again.

    I genuinely miss both my MR2, and 4runner. Having both back would be a great summer/winter combo.

    Don't miss the Mustang. Regretted that purchase after the first winter of owning it.

    Miss my MkV GTI 2 door. Great little car, barely cost me anything in the 3 years I owned it.

    Car I couldn’t get far enough away from? Toyota FJ Cruiser. Useless piece of crap that was terrible to drive, so much for Toyotas never needing repairs because that thing had a $3-5k repair bill every year we owned it.

    I haven't owned many vehicles, and I seem to be a sentimental guy. I miss them all for various reasons:

    - '91 240SX hatch with a Silvia front clip. Purchased from a beyonder and wrecked soon after...that car fundamentally altered my trajectory in life (for the better, I'd think). While the experience itself sucked, I'm grateful toward the experience and the car which set all of that in motion. Spine-jarring coils and an exhaust that droned like hell at 2.8k in 5th gear on deerfoot. A BOV which could probably be heard from miles away. If I saw it now I'd hate it, but I wish I could take it for another spin.
    - '00 Legacy GT. My "internship" commuter (which hung around for several years after). Light, peppy and springy, heated cloth seats were the best - it was just such a blast to drive. Started and ran like a charm, even after sitting in the McMahon lot at -28 for 14 hours. Lot of memories from that time in my life.
    - '08 A4 Avant 3.2. Timelessly clean interior - the last of an era which we'll never again see (analog gauges, that little "click" every VWAG button makes"). So stout, it felt like a tank. Had its quirks, but ran pretty well.

    '84 Scirocco, '83 GTI, '83 Rabbit Turbo Diesel, '88 Audi 90.
    Back in my VW water-cooled days.
    If I ever had a Corrado, I'm pretty sure I'd miss that, too! I always wanted one of the supercharged ones.

    Well I missed my 2007 rs4 after thinking I’d be happy with the 2016 golf r, that lasted about 2 years and I got another 2007 rs4. So don’t think I can sell that one as I’ll probably just buy another.

    I havnt really hated any cars I’ve owned. I wish I could find a corrado but I’m really looking for a 1990 prelude.

    88 4runner that got creamed by a dumbass in a vette

    And my 70s wagoneer... I really want a wagoneer again lately, some sweet ass wood paneling, and fine corinthian leather interior with an LS swap would be the bomb. Sadly they're 20k+ in non rustbucket condition...

    Miss the least - toss up between the exploder eddie bauer, and the mach1 mustang... The exploder was a true ford for me - couldn't keep it running; constant issues. The Mach1 was great fun, but she had a massive drinking problem; didn't own her long enough to really break down. A week of commuting killed my gas budget for the month. But the merging onto deerfoot was great fun

    I miss my monte SS lowrider to no end. I'm constantly looking for that car. Bought a 94 intrepid winter beater from the auction. Turned out it didn't have heat. I'll never forget that winter. Do not miss that car.

    haha. When I hand someone the keys to a car, I rarely think about that car again. I'm not one that is much for nostalgia/sentimentality.

    MOST: E60 M5 - V10 power, like no other / RX8 - so little power, so nimble.
    Least: too many to list. FJ Cruiser probably, dont understand the hype. Slow AF, shitty on gas, shitty built.

    I have precisely one nostalgia car that counts as a childhood dream car.
