    ...Here's my regret: A 1990 GT 5.0 mustang. I tricked this thing out with headers/h-pipe/catback exhaust, pony wheels with nitto drag radials, a pro 5oh shifter, race springs/shocks, caster/camber plates, fluidyne radiator, subframes, temp gauges, new carpet and tons more mods. I let it go back in the day (2002 I think) for just under 4 grand! Burnouts were fun in this car but it was a ticket machine :D

    Go ahead and reminisce about your old car, truck, boat, or anything else with an engine that you sold and wish you hadn't!

    1987 Buick Grand National. Parents got it for me as a graduation gift in high school. Kept it for 6 years and put 135,000 miles on it. Spent a ton on mods to make it go faster. Crappy scanned picture included.

    Please don't kill me but my first Pickup 2000 Nissan Frontier Extended Cab 4x4 SE Fire Engine Red. Mods: Delta Truck Box, Pioneer Head Unit, Components in the Doors Upgrade the Rear speakers, 12" sub with 1000 watt amp and 500 watt amp for the speakers, Viper Alarm. Had some fun with that truck, was rear-ended the second day I had it. It had less than 100 miles on the Odometer and from that point on I would go anywhere with it.

    1962 Thunderbird. Man that thing was a cruiser. Painted robins egg blue with white spider webbing. That thing was a chick magnet back in the day.

    65 Mustang. 289, C4 auto, 4:11 rearend. It was in good shape when I got it but I spent a lot of time and money on it. Never had to do anything major, but fixed a window regulator, repainted inner door panels and trunklid. replaced all the brake lines. Great car that ran smooth and could cruise comfortably at 70 all day long. Bought for 4000 and sold for about that 12 years ago. Car would probably be worth 12k to 13k today.

    82 datsun 4x4 king cab looked just like this. It was my 2nd vehicle.

    My first vehicle which I have still to this day looked for its replacement. 1974 Olds Omega with the 350 rocket and sport package. My parents had bought it new in 1974 and I got it at age 16 with 130,000 miles on it. Sport package included bucket seats and woodgrain trim. It was cherry red.

    I regret getting rid of my 1st truck. 81 Chevy C10 305 Short Bed. It was painted baby blue, had some mods on it and an "Eye of the tiger" headliner. Had to get rid of it bc it had engine problems so it was either buy the taco or pay to get it fixed. I'm dying to find another someday.

    kinda regret trading my civic for my truck-- I only got 3000 for it, and it was in great shape-- I think I could've afforded to keep both, considering it got twice as many mpg as the truck.

    My Mom and Dad sold a Shelby GT 350 when I was a kid, because it didnt have AC. They regret that. My Wife sold her '67 Mustang, and misses the hell out of it, but she was on a fast treack to loosing her license if she kept it. As for me....Maybe my 'Ol '81 power wagon......That thing was a tank.
