Question Which Car have you sold or gotten rid of that you have regretted ever since?

Like the title says, which vehicle have you got rid of for whatever reason and you have regretted it ever since?

I just posted the same question on our Facebook Page and thought it would be an interesting question to ask here as well. If you want to post your response up there as well here is the link for it: https://www.facebook.com/coldairinductions

I'll start. I just recently got a KILLER deal on a 78 Trans-Am Y82 Special Edition. It needed work, but it ran and drove and the interior was near perfect. I traded it for a 95 V6 Camaro with a custom paint job just to sell and make a few quick bucks.

I know, regretting it already.

I've owned about 8 other cars, that I don't really care that I got rid of.

I've never regretted getting rid of any to be honest. I don't get that attached to them. I prefer to live in the moment.

I'm usually the same way, but this one being a limited production car, and the fact that I got it for so incredibly cheap, it was stupid to sell it. I should have drove it until it fell part just for the memories, lesson learned.

had a 1992 Eclipes turbo that would have been an awesome tuner car. (it was before the fats and the furious craze)
1988 Chevy K5
2004 Nissan Sentra SE-R spec-v (great auto-x car)

1969 Camaro purchased when I turned 16 with 100% my hard earned money from mowing, hauling hay, cleaning barns, working tobacco, etc. A lot of sweat went into paying for that car and I didn't owe a dime on it. Bought it from my neighbor who was getting a divorce and it was their fun car, only had a couple thousand miles on it and still smelled new, garage kept and flawless paint. When I got married 3 years later, my wife hated to drive it because of having to shift gears. After about 3 years of asking me to sell it and get her a automatic transmission car, I relented and sold it. I would have kept that car for the rest of my life. Almost 40 years since I sold that car and I still hate letting it go.

1992 Honda Prelude. Traded it in for a 1994 V6 Camaro. BAD move in my book. The Prelude was a much better car.

This one:


A 78 Gran Prix "SJ" with factory mags, and landau roof. I loved that car but it just finally started falling apart and I didn't at the time have the motivation to keep it up to snuff.

A 1978 Chevy Silverado short bed 350. Immaculate, a/c still worked. Bought it used at Archer Dodge here in Houston back in 96 and sold it a couple of years later when I got a company vehicle. I hate myself for doing that and my wife hates me as well for that. I do have a 78 GMC Sierra but it's no where near the condition that my Silverado was in. My goal is to get the Sierra redone. I love driving that thing.

My 91 S-10.

Tons of great memories in that thing and it was built like a tank. I did things with that truck that most full size truck drivers would scoff at. Sold it in 2002 with 265,895 miles on it.

To this day I still see it around every now and then in town. I bet its on it's 6th owner by now and none have treated it the way I have. Though I used the ever loving mess out of it, I always kept it in great shape and did regular maintenance on it.

My first car was a 1972 Monte Carlo from Florida...pretty much mint for $800. Being young, I beat the crap out of it and wrecked it. I would trade my Chevelle for a mint 70-72 Monte in a heartbeat!
