Kobrah I had this '09 Buell 1125cr that i really wish i hadnt sold. It was awesome...weighed like 365 pounds and 140 some horsepower, and the shortest wheelbase so you could whip it around corners like nothing. It was so fast, but it didnt have a windscreen so you felt like you were going to get ripped off the handle bars.

coelement777 My 2007 Honda element. It was the first car i bought new. Tangerine orange with black fenders. the back seats folded up and were removable and you could a minivans worth of stuff in it with the seats out. It got around 25 mpg on the highway. Manual transmission and a 160hp 4 cyl. I put 70k miles on that car and still regret selling it, if i could find another orange one with a manual i would pick it up as a second car in a heartbeat. It is the closest thing honda has ever made to a jeep, all it needed was real 4x4 and a bigger engine.

Automotive artwork. A '70 - '75 (with the '71+ strangling emissions crap pulled off that beautiful 500ci V8) is on my short list to fill the dream garage.

Oz82 I'll go a different direction and say my 1987 VW diesel Rabbit. 45 hp, around 40 miles to the gallon, and tough as nails.

In the early 90's I tore the drainplug out on a rock while exploring fire roads (it had torque for days, but no ground clearance) and didn't notice until the oil pressure light came on. I put a sock in the plug hole, put 2 quarts (all the oil I had with me) in the top, and drove it out of the fire road network and 20 miles home. Once I drilled and tapped the plug hole (used a drain plug from our tractor, we had an extra), I refilled the oil to the right level and drove it another 40k miles with not a single issue.

I never planned to get rid of it, but later that year my now ex-wife rolled it. We sold the engine to a lumber yard to run their belt system, and last I heard (3 years ago) it was still running like a top.

I wonder if there's a way to get an 80's VW diesel to work in a Jeep?

Chris M Every time I go to Home Depot I wish I had my 2000 F150 back. I can only get 10 bags of mulch and 10 pieces of sod in the back. I loved being able to put actual equipment in the back without having to "plan" my trip by flipping down the rear seat and removing my daughters car seat.

derfC #1) '93 Honda Del Sol Si:

*Not mine, but nearly identical

It was a fun little car that got great mileage & made for a great commuter. However, it wasn't the most practical thing for someone who just bought a house and was starting a family. So, I traded it in for...

#2) an '02 Chevy Silverado:


After I put new rims/ wider tires on it (pic taken when the Google Streetview car turned around in my driveway ):


Driving us through floodded streets during TS Wilma:


That truck was a Godsend after 3 back-to-back hurricanes rolled through here in '04. I used it for pulling stumps, hauling const. materials, etc, etc, etc. Very handy, but in 2010, with kid #2 on the way and only 3 seats in the truck, it had to go.

But, then came the Jeep

TexasGrant My 1995 Honda VFR 750. Bought it brand new when I was 18, owned it for six months before it was stolen one fall evening from outside my dormitory. Loved that bike.

DirtRoad My '61 Chevy Bel Air... both of them. The first one was baby blue, and was my first car. The second one (pictured) was the same, except was silver, and was sold to help get together a down payment for the house. *sighs*

I would let him drive it more but that last time, he backed it into a fence and cost me $800 in paint repair. LOL
That's just a whole lotta cool right there.

Scooba Steve I don't think I have any pics of the LeSabre anymore (if I do they're in a box somewhere), it's been 30 years since I let that one slip away. I did, however, find a disk this weekend with some pics of the Impala.

dawhitesJKU i don't have a picture of it, but i was into DSM's. i built a 97 eclipse gst spyder...i ended up giving it to my cousin as a present when he got his license. i can barely look at it now everytime i see him driving it. dents, scratches, paint peeling, soft top not working, and he doesn't take care of the engine...he just tops off the oil with cheap regular oil instead of changing it. but i love the stories he tells me of beating other cars with it.

BigManAndy The Jeep is the 3rd vehicle I've owned. Prior ones were a 2000 and 2005 Grand Prix. Great cars, but nothing memorable about them. So I'm guessing I'm driving the vehicle now I'll wish I had back down the road. If I ever get rid of it.

Wondertwin1 1995 ford f150 XLT 5.8 auto 4x4 extended cab short bed dual tanks. Loaded to the hilt with pretty much every option. Cost $27,000 in 1994. It was my first truck. Had it for 3 years. Wrecked it and was planning on fixing it, but sold it to my buddy because I was to busy. Now I see it all the time, especially since me and my girlfriend hang out with him and his girlfriend a lot.
