I haven't sold any yet... but I'll probably regret selling the mazda. Though I just don't really like it all that much.

I once had a 1981 Olds delta 88 2 door. Had a 350 rocket in it. Miss that car.

My 5 spd Aerostar- soon after selling it, I found out that the 4.0 and 3.0 shared bell housing patterns. The darn thing developed a roof leak that would only leak when sitting in the rain. It made me mad, I had lots of money, and so I bought the ZXW.

I also regret selling a 89 Buick Skylark that I built with an 85 cam and big block roller rockers- 2.5 pushrod 4 cyl. That car was smoking- one of the last Fisher Bodies, invisible to police, but I had an apprentice who needed a car. I sold it to her, and she made like 3 payments before her boyfriend and his friends wrecked it. Now the rule is, no matter who it is, if they can't pay, they don't get cars from me.
Be eclectic.

I'm going to miss my cobalt when I sell it. It was my first new vehicle and it still looks mint. To bad the service I've received gives me bad memories when I drive it

I purchased a 1969 Mustang Mach 1 in 1973, my first car. I was owner #2. I kept it for three years and then sold it to my father-in-law. He kept it for about twenty years and sold it to his sister (his brother-in-law drove it). I always thought that eventually I would be able to purchase the car back and be able to tell people I was still driving the first car I ever purchased. Unfortunately, when the brother-in-law passed away, the car was sold outside of the family before I realized what was happening.
It's gone for good now.

My 1969 GTO Convertible 455 HO might be nice to have back again, and I traded in a 7.3L diesel Excursion I wouldn't mind having back, either. Sigh.

Of the 19 cars I've owned, my '93 Sundance Duster (V6 5-speed) was the best of the bunch. 4 years and 75,000 miles of trouble-free fun. Fast and light on its feet, comfortable and reliable. The only reason I sold it was because it was going to be needing brakes, a timing belt and a clutch and I didn't have the cash for all that. So with a tear in my eye, I traded it for the WORST vehicle I've ever owned. '97 Ranger Flareside 2.3. I went from a car I loved to a truck I ended up hating. I would LOVE to have that Duster back, but I know someone likely bought it and ran it into the ground.

I never drove it but my familys 89 Ford Thunderbird. That car was a dog in town but on the highway that 3.8 v6 came to life and would run over anything we put it up against. It handled extremely well, was very comfortable and it would get 30 mpg. Very comfortable and was very reliable. We sold it to our grand parents who drove it for about 13 years.

Sadly the transmission was starting to go and the body was rather rough. If it werent for that it would had been my first car instead of the Oldsmobile. So it was sold for about $500 bucks to a guy who hoards old Fords. Last time I ever saw it.

I also regret letting go of my 93 Ranger ext. cab 4x4. It was a 4.0 automatic with push button 4x4. That truck was a beast. We drove the piss out of it hauling a trailer, bed always had something in it, was used for plowing, removing stumps, pulling other cars out of ditches, ect ect ect. Sadly the ass end of the frame was so rusted along with the bed it you could litterally lift it off the frame. It also had some mechanical issues. But that 4.0 would fire right up. It would still drive just fine. But it was a death trap. So we sold it to a junk yard for $400 bucks. We got it brand new.

If it werent for the rust Ide be driving it.
I hate the word swag.

I miss my 1988 Dodge Dakota... I could actually do mechanical work on it... Plus it was a money pit.
