    Probably none of them. The Altima was a slightly better car than the MS3 when it was running at full power, but Bluetooth is great.

    I don't miss my first car, the little Ford Escort.

    I wouldn't want any of the four cars I used to own because they were worn out and in need of major repairs when I finally had to give up on them. The pattern continues as I find myself driving a 20-year-old car with over 250K miles, and one major repair away from having to go car shopping again.

    Still, I would like a nice old VW Beetle again someday - just not one of the two I used to own. Or maybe a Karmann Ghia...

    Would the car I used to own be as I left it, as I initially bought it or from brand new?


    I still really miss my 1995 Tealbaru of Doom. Loved that car, just an absolute joy to drive. But I would not want it back as I left it, but I would trade my current car straight up; from the time I bought it or from brand new.


    As far as cars I didn't like, I'm don't think I have had one. I have enjoyed them all in their own ways.

    I would love to have the Beast back and driveable. Techincally we still own the Beast, but it's nowhere near in a driveable state. Needs probably about 40k worth of work to make it useable again. Hands down though, if I had the money, I would do it.

    Ok, let me clarify.

    As if you had it from new. I would say from when you bought it, but my choice would have been....in pieces from day 20(?)


    My picks are:

    Most missed :

    '99 911. I loved driving it. I didn't realise how much I did until just recently. If the right scenario happened, I might own another. However, I love my new toy for the time being.

    Least missed:

    1991 Volvo 940. Better know as Bertha. That fucking thing pushed my every button, the entire way. It was maddening. I almost lost a friendship over it. I did learn a fuck ton about who and what I was though.

    Would love to have my 2004 Dodge Neon back. I remember when I was in 8th grade and I cut out a picture of the neon by Plymouth because I was obsessed with it. It was a great little car that I had no issues with.

    My 2002 Alero can go rot in hell for all I care. I swear it was a lemon because it caused me nothing but trouble since they day I purchased it.

    That Alero had amazingly uncomfortable seats. Like concrete for the base and a plank of plywood for the seatback.

    You had them put a sunroof in when you bought it from the used car dealer.

    The car I'd have back (if I had another garage) 88 Toyota MR2 supercharged hardtop. Sadly it got driven into the back of a tractor by the subsequent owner (who was also the previous owner ... I bought it off him, and sold it back to him again).

    It wasn't particularly amazing at anything, but was a nice little car to throw around. Plus, just stupidly rare in that condition now.

    Car I'm glad to be rid of the most, 1984 Fiat Uno. Every time I drove that car, something broke.

    I know, I really like having a sunroof. Remember the terrible exhausted pipe it had??? I probably should have never bought that car.

    Gee, I wonder why.
