Default I miss my 92. What cars do you miss

Found this http://www.cardomain.com/ride/710810 and started thinking about (well fixing the grammar first) but how much fun it was to build it. I learned so much on that car. I mean I really like my car now but I was pretty attached to this one. I really hope the new owner really does turbocharged it again like he said he would.

no accident loss. Parted out and sold. If i had kept it just a bit longer I could have had the cash to fixed it and (paint, dent, and needed carpet staples, new glove box, and it would have been good to go again)

I miss my 93 Civic DX Hatch, and my 89 Dodge Grand Caravan V6. I miss both more than my 91 NSX, which I find odd.

I only did suspension and wheels/tires on the Civic. I liked it because it was a PoS and I could just flog the hell out of it and not car. Plus it was so slow that I could drive it for all it was worth and still be within legal speed limits. It was my first car with no ABS. It also had a big back seat, and I could throw a bunch of stuff in it. I will buy another one someday.

The Caravan I mostly just miss its hauling abilities (both people and stuff). I have a lot of memories from high school and college from that car. I was naive and traded it in for $500 when I bought my first Integra. :/

my exhaust + cobb tuned saab 92x (subaru wrx wagon). It was really quick, drove super smooth and quiet, and could seat 4 comfortably. Most bestest of all it fit a twin sized inflatable mattress in the back with the seats folded down ... had a lot of good times in that car and it had the stains to prove it lol.

88 MR2. It was a fun car before I learned what modding was.

Pitlab77, don't you find the refinement of the NB, much nicer than the NA? I like my NB as a car a lot better than my NA, and when I finally turn up the boost and work on the tuning, it should be as good as my NA, which was crazy when I was running the turbo and Nitrous. Maybe I'm getting old.

92 Mariner Blue Miata.

My first ever Miata had rear end damage, bought for $2400 with 32k, sold for $2000 with 45k. Still know the guy who beats the everliving **** out of it.

Just to work on my car again, I offered to do a clutch job for $200. He drove it so bad that it could be left in 5th gear with the engine idling (no bullshit).

Anyway, he got the damage fixed, and is in the process of ricing it out. He's a ricer.
