CARS YOU WISH YOU COULD HAVE BACK

39 posts in this topic

like old girlfriends, sometimes we wish we could have a car from the past, back in our life. maybe for awhile, or back again to stay.

What would you like back?

me?

Far too often I wish I had my 89 SHO back. Perfect car for me. I miss that car so much. Practical, stealthy, extremely comfy. Very Euro, yet still Detroit. v6, stick, FWD. Great in snow. Handled great. Great stereo. Snarly when you were on the gas and absolutely dead quiet when crusing at high speeds. awesome sunroof.

*sigh* (tear)

Sometimes I wish I had my old Chevette Scooter back also. :blink: The Vega too! :duh:

We had other variants of these cars, but I wish I could have back either

1.

A 76 or 77 Cutlass Salon coupe with a 260 c.i. Rocket V8

2.

A 81 or 82 Cutlass Supreme Brougham coupe with a 260 c.i. Rocket V8

Just today, I was on an engine list website pertaining to GM and it praised this little engine for its smoothness and longevity.

my old 83 buick regal wagon, the only other car i've had. buick v6, 3speed, just fun to drive because it was so unique, even though it was a pretty clumsy car. lol. i'd put a turbo on it or put a v8 in it w/ a 4 speed at least... that'd be fun :)

I actually don't remember what kinda car it was, but it was a big green Dodge from the 70's...we called it the "Green Bomber" I was really little when my dad got rid of it, but I used to love the car...I should ask what it was...these days I can barely picture it. It had some great stores though. Like one time someoen tried to steal it, but he ended up cutting himself on the metal stteering column and there was blood on it in the moring, damn thief :P

Also, we used to have a Satellite Sebring that was eventually junked...

You had one of these with this V6 too? Did yours leak oil? I never could get mine to stop leaking totally.

Oh! I know! My Tyco RC Mutator I had when I was younger. I still have it, but 2 of the 4 motors stopped working...so it's no longer AWD :P

Does that count? :lol:

Nope, no oil leaks on mine. There really was nothing wrong with it other then the fact that I got out run by a VW Rabbit diesel.

1990 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera SL. Fully loaded, black.

That's our first car when my family first landed in Canada. Such a comfortable car.

Oh, and last year that it came with full square taillamps, true to classic Olds design. The three bars on the new one looks awkwardly out of place, especially even the redesigned Cutlass Supreme got square lamps.

My '87 Integra LS coupe. I traded it in with 60,000 miles on it and got about $7000. That was way back in 1990.

This is an easy one for me...my 1985 S10 Blazer. Custom painted Diamond Blue metallc, with a TBI 350 in it. The old Colt I had could stay in the junkyard where it was brought shortly after we sold it.

Speaking for my father, I'll bet he'd like back his '62 and '65 Corvettes, along with his '68 RS/SS Camaro, '86 IROC, '85 Cutlass Supreme, and '84 Cutlass Calais.
