what previous car do you 5er guys miss the most?

I returned the Mcoupe on Saturday, the lease sadly ended and I really miss the big POS
The other previously owner car I should have never sold was the 94 300ZX TT, it was over engineered and built like a brick **** house.

I had a '69 Firebird back in high school that my father eventually gave to a "Boy's Club" for a tax write off. I guess I should've convinced him to keep it but since I was away from home at the time, I couldn't do much about it. I hope they really enjoyed that fine piece of Detroit muscle car.

My folks bought brand spanking new a 1970 Olds Cutlass S. My Dad later told me he was just a step away from getting the 442 but didn't pull the trigger. Still, the 350 in the Olds was good and it would have been nice to have kept that car "in the family" but that is the way things work some times.

The 530i is my first BMW so....

Tough call, but I miss my POS E46 as well! Topaz blue 323Ci with TONS of problems...eventually returned as a lemon. Despite the problems, I absolutely loved that car

Ahh Fire Engine Red/Black Recaro leather 90 VW Corrado G60. Goodies included 17psi pulley with fuel enrichment kit, and eCU. Modified 260 cmas, with bored out 1.8 to 2.0L. ceramic coated headers down through highflow cats, and Sebring exhaust.

Cornered like it was on rails, and you could actually feel the car sit closer to the ground as you passed 100Mph. Fastest I've ever gone in a car was with the "Red Dog". Took her up to 255Kph.

Sold her to a fellow that put her in the wall in one of our expressways. My mom could hear me coming from 2 locks away.

Lots of Corrado fans and it was the last real VW worth owning. I still see a ton of them driving and not a one is stock

I also had an '88 Scirocco 16V. A fun car, but not as fun as the Corrado.

The Scirocco was my absolute favorite, the 16V was awesome as well. It was a great drivers interior as well. I used to do runs from Ft. Collins to C springs once a week in that thing, and it never let me down. I just feel bad for my freind who kept lending it to me LOLOLOL.

What color? mine was maroon/grey. I have many great stories about the Z car. My all time favorite was my first 1/4 mile attempt. It was slightly uphill and I thought the road continued, but it was actually a fork in the road. I was up in Wisconsin and running on farm roads. My friend decided to tell me the road ended as we were airborn. The car launched into a corn field at 100+ and it landed on all 4's. We did a quick 360, hopped back on the road and drove straight to a gas station for inspection. I expected the worse, but to my disbelief the car was perfect. I took it in, got yelled at by the shop manager and then they did a 4 wheel alignment to be safe. He said the motor should have dropped out and I should have been stranded, thank GOD Nissan over engineered the car. The new Z is great, but the old TT is forever my favorite car.
I will get another one, but finding one that has been taken care of is next to impossible.
