If I could turn back the hands of time, to save one vehicle I owned, it would be the 91 Geo Metro 5dr I used to own. 1st car I owned and 1st car I modded. I had spreadsheets full of dreams.

I pulled the whole interior out and sprayed it black and put in blue house carpet. I used what I had to work with for the most part. Ran new wires from Alpine head unit to alpine speakers but had a 900w Kenwood 12" in the back.

'77 Datsun 280Z, metal flake blue. I bought it with some sweet slotted wheels but needed tires so I traded them for spoke chrome wheels that had tires with some decent tread. I didn't know what I had the time

1970 Chevelle. Sold it to a guy who said he was going to restore it. I found out a year or so later that he parted it out and scrapped the remains.

Bummed me out.

That sucks. More random parts that people will never find for a popular classic

My old comanche. I owed some people money and couldn't get it to run properly so I sold it. If I knew what I know now, I'd still have it.

I know bro, I know.
I didn't really get rid of it. What I did was allow my extended family to use it. They promptly destroyed it.
That actually happened to a 280 ZX I had as well.

I had an '86 Toyota MR2 that I put a bunch of work into. I traded it in for a new Dodge Neon, which turned out to be a really good car even though most folks didn't like them.

I should have kept both of them.

81 mercury capri, thing was ragged out but fast as all get out. Paint peeling off in chunks showing the factory orange, interior stripped and floorboards rusted out, but fresh full roller 306, big cam, headers back 2 1/2 to flowmasters, blah blah, and a t-5. Dusted every one of my tuner buddies, few newer stangs, toyota x-runner, anyone else that gave it a try. Won enough money to pay for the car three times over. Had a kid and decided it was best to get something safer, miss that thing every day
