The one car you love(d)?

32 posts in this topic

I was just thinking the other day about one of my favorite cars and of all my cars i have been through i think my favorite cars was my 1980 Oldsmobile Omega 2 door with the iron duke in a deep black. I remember beating it to death and jumping it off of rail road tracks with friends. I also remember rebuilding the engine when i blew it up. I sold it to my neighbor at the time (1989 ish) for i think $150. The body was still clean and straight. I wish I would of kept that car.

Just bored here so i figure i would ask you guys about one of your favorite cars you have ever owned either current or in the past.

My red '87 Integra LS. Drove it for 60K hard miles. A complete blast. I got a few nicks and scratches and felt compelled to trade it in for a '91 Integra GS, which had a very different character.

My 1969 Pontiac Custom-S hardtop coupe of course, but sometimes I wish I had the convertible Custom-S ... I do have the 350 V8 and not the standard V6.

Wow, a '69 Pontiac with a V6, I never heard of such a rare creature.

I wish I had my old '73 Catalina back. I also loved my '00 GTI 1.8t.

1985 Volvo 765 Turbo & 2002 Alero GL2

The Alero, especially with the GL2, was a surprisingly great handling car.

Definitely the car I have now, although I did have some fun times with the Luminas.

this morning i was putting plugs in the caprice and i was thinking about what im going to do if that car gets totaled. since i will put a new trans and engine it it if need be. I find myself always replacing things that dont even need to be replaced its like i enjoy working on it or something. I can't think of a time where that car isnt being floored or skidding sideways. I drive it live a stunt car driver. Its just i love the boatyness the sound of the engine and the fact that you can break the tires loose. I don't drive it much since i do all my commuting in either the LeSabre or Vette.

My GTO. Even though I miss the supercharger whine of my Grand Prix when it was done with the bigger cam and smaller pulley, the GTO is so much more fun. One day I'd like a supercharger or turbo for my GTO.

What else? My 1966 Mustang Fastback, in white. 289, 4 speed, used to lead the kids in the back and head for the beach in the summer...wish I had it back

My 2002 and my 1991 Miata's, no longer own the 91 but love the 2002 to death...

My 1955 Chevrolet, perhaps my other favorite car...

My 1971 Chevelle, great times in htat car, owned it for like about 7 years, just like the Mustang and the 55 Chev.

Next car on the list to own---MINI Cooper S or VW TDI Golf...or VW GTI.

The VW TDI Golf is a nice looking car.

Something doesn't quite sound right....

Exactly

I wish I had my old '73 Catalina back. I also loved my '00 GTI 1.8t.

from conversations past I had the impression you

really loved & enjoyed your 2-dr hardtop Corvair.

I'm only a pseudo-FoMoCo fan but an all out GM fanatic,

and yet comparing a W-body Lumina to a Lincoln LS V8

just seems to be laughable.

It would be like comparing the brand-spanking-newest

& best F-22 Raptor to a 9-decade old Sopwith Camel.

True, 68. The little green Monza was similar to honey in sweetness. I miss her.

Leaving my Cobalt out of this, I'll say that I loved and miss my S10 Blazer. If it didn't have terminal metal cancer, I'd probably still own it.

Of the cars my father had while I grew up, there are quite a few - a 1986 IROC, a 1986 Firebird (v6, but still cool to a 10 year old), a 1984 Cutlass Calais, a 1985 Cutlass Supreme, a 1981 Regal, a 1986 GP, and, what the hell, a 1965 Corvette that he said would be mine but ended up selling it to build me a bedroom. All but the Corvette he bought with the intentions of fixing and flipping. F-bodies aside, The G-bods were cool, especially the 1985 Cutty. It was black on grey with a plane jane exterior, complete with Olds rocket hubcaps. He put rally wheels and a bodyside molding on it, and it looked killer with the tinted windows it came with. It had a V6 that needed some TLC. He swapped it out in a weekend and sold it the day he put it in the paper. I wish he could have kept it.

I wasn't trying to compare the two...obviously the LS is a more fun car to drive, but the Luminas put a smile on my face a few times too. Plus, you could beat on them all day long and they would take it like a champ. The Euro models had a stiffer suspension that did well in cornering, and there was a decent amount of torque to get them going even if they were a little underpowered for passing above 55 mph. I dunno, I liked them.

I really wish I had my '71 Coupe DeVille back:

I drove the wheels off this thing, even though I only owned it for a few short months.
