Default This is one I really miss!

We've all had cars we sold in the past & regretted it almost immediately... this is mine! What's yours?!?

I had a 70 Duster and as much as I liked that car the one I wish I still had was my Dad's 73 Valiant 4dr. Thing had factory air, power brakes and steering and a 318. Would have been an awesome sleeper. My Dusters 300hp 273CI would have been nice in there. Jim

When I got out of college I was going to buy a new '65 Chevelle SS 327 4 speed. Never did.

1976 Trans Am 455 4 speed with factory Hurst shifter. No AC AM radio with 1 speaker, roll up windows, regular locks, no T-tops. Whoever ordered it was truly a car guy/girl/person

I built a lot of them in the last 25 years but this Model A did everything right.

I had a bunch of nice cars but I miss my pos 77 dodge ramcharger AD100 the most. It was loud, smoked ,rattled, rusted, smelled bad in and out... just how I like it...

just for the looks and cool... I do miss my 70 Cuda every now&then.

Any old muscle car with dog dish hubcaps are the best.

That one looks like my friends, tripper. Minus the flames.
It's got a hot 327 in it now. One day it will have a hotter 301 that we are building.
Like most of you. My list of cars is fairly long. But the one I miss the most would have to be my HS car. 1956 Mercury Montclair. 2 door hardtop. 312 with a merc-o- matic trans. Black with a black tuck and roll interior. Lots of good memories with that car.
As far as dollar value. 32 Ford 5 window coupe with a built flathead. Chopped and channeled on an OG 32 frame that had been Z'd. Legit 32 front axle that had been dropped. It was what is now called a "Survivor" hot rod.
No pics of the coupe have survived but here a re a few with the Merc and some of the rest of the fleet. circa 1975
