What car have you sold and wish you had back?

Have you ever sold a car then years later wish you had it back?
Tell us if you could choose any one car which car you would want back the most and how much you sold it for, the year you sold it and how much one just like it is worth today.

Mine was my 65 Corvette Stingray Convertible. I sold it in 1973 for $1,800. Today that car would sell for anywhere between $60,000 and $100,000

I only have a couple of cars that I sold that I wish I could get back. Had a 84 monte carlo non SS V8 that I wanted to do so much too but at the time didn't have a good job for a project car had great ideas for it. Next is the car I learned to drive stick shift on which is a 88 ford thunderbird Turbo coupe with only 88k miles on it. I miss that car to this day and will own one again some day. I keep a look out for ads online lol.

2000 Prowler. I modded everything on this car. Last engine was bored/stroked, had performance gears and convertor and would run 12's in the quarter - not bad for a 6 cylinder. Drove as Daily Driver for 5 1/2 years and 151,000 miles.

1967 Camaro RS
1969 Mustang Convertible
1970 Plymouth Satellite Convertible
1970 Chevelle

Probably sold all of them combined for less than 10 grand. Couldn't buy any of them today for that. If only I had a time machine...

My parents had a white 88 tbird turbo coupe! They absolutely miss that car. They totalled it one year driving back from California - hit a deer. Dad bought the car back from insurance and fixed it himself. They moved to an acreage and the computer in the car did not do well with the gravel roads, eventually had to sell, but they wish they had been able to hold onto it.

68 Corvette convertible, 74 Dodge Charger 400 Magnum, 86 Tbird Turbo Coupe, 87 Buick Grand National, 90 Tbird SC, 96 Impala SS, 96 Mustang Cobra, 99 Hard Top Corvette, 01, 03, 06 Z06, 06 GTO.

Edit: reason, ADD.

My apologies OP, Grand National, paid 11, 000.00 in 91 and sold it for 12, 000.00 in 98, was a second car. Would be worth 25, 000.00 If kept and unmolested.
Heck wish I kept them all.

This one, by far.
Sold it in 2005 for $11,000, and I don't want to know what a 37k mile 87 GN would be worth now.
