I will admit, I DO miss my 99 FRC Corvette though.... a fast, very reliable car. and YES! VERY Economical! (Drove it to Houston one weekend to see the grandparents and got 32mpg, including driving around town after arrival and the return. Oh, and did I mention we were pasing at about 80+ on the highway? )
Not my car, but same color and look. Stock "Wagon wheels," euro tails, Z06 rear brake cooling ducts. But you get the idea...


Gun Control Means Using Both Hands

1997 Jeep TJ - Truly BUILT not BOUGHT! Purchased from original owner stock... obviously THAT didn't last long!

| WJ Seat Swap into a TJ WITH FORWARD TILT!!

Car I wish I still had: my first car "87 Olds Cutlass Supreme 4-door
I miss Betty.
Here is one I found online. Same colors in & out.

I would like, and probably will get soon. An Olds 442. Not set on 70s or 80s body yet. Most likely an 87 with T-top

1968 Chrysler 300 Convertible. Came out when I was ~10 years old. Pure lust.

Yeah, this one needs some work, and not a fave color (probably needs to be yellow or red)

Wish I still had this


And I want one of these


All of these



And a bunch of old school muscle cars, super bee, challenger, charger, camaro, impala, chevelle, nova, dusters, gtx, etc etc.
And a bunch of sports cars, impreza sti, evo's, supra, aston martins, ascari a10, koenigsegg, various jags, atomic atom, list goes on and on. But pretty much every sports car they show on Top Gear UK.

And

04 TJ- Short Bus. It's got some stuff.


Sometimes I question my sanity. Occasionally it replies.

I know it wasn't much, but I miss this car. 1990 Buick Regal Limited coupe. 3800 V6, digital dashboard, ice cold A/C. Bought it from my friend for $300 because I really needed a car at the time.

Sadly the subframe mounts were rusting out and were about to let loose from the body, which was a problem on the older W body cars.

I pimped this ride to high school my sophomore and junior year. You could fit 10 high schoolers in this boat.
I had a diesel one the same color in high school. Man that thing rode like a caddy... and the seats were so comfortable. Got 20mpg with 7 teenagers in it. It never broke down and was indestructible. I even had it offroad and in a little mud here and there.

I miss my 1999 Civic LX. It was manual and had an AEV short Ram intake I installed which helped the throttle response a lot on that car. No rust and when I sold it, it only had 120K miles. I only sold it for $2,200. I didn't owe any money on it but my girlfriend at the time convinced me to sell it because she said it was a pos and there was no need in owning 2 cars. I wish I still had it, but I plan on getting a similar one someday. Picture is of a similar one.

I still miss my 03 dodge neon. Sold it not to long ago but still. Had less miles then my jeep does now at around 74000 and it wanted to break on me all the time. Decent body till I hydroplanes it over a hill. Must of had a great skid plate cause it didn't do **** to the undercarriage (lol) I've ramped it, hit 120 in it, scared alot of people with my driving and drove the hell out of that car. I've seen it a couple times. New owner has replaced the front bumper and I believe put alloy runs on it but I know it's my old one.
