Of all the cars you've owned

Of all the cars you've ever owned, which one do you wish you still had. Either for performance, value or sentiment. Makes no difference.

Mine would be the '69 Charger R/T (440, column shifter, bench seat)

When you start off with your coolest car, it's easy. My first was a brand slap new 1964 Falcon, 170 cubic inch 6 with 3 on-the-tree. Not even a Futura. I guess it was the same underneath as the "New" Mustang. The Mustang was built off the Falcon platform.

1974 Lotus Europa (Street and Autocross. My first twin-cam engine build) Big valve Cosworth engine making about 240 HP. Twin 45 DCOE Weber carbs. Not a lot of horsepower but it weighed about 1500 pounds and was really, really fast.

1958 Mini 850 cc (0-60 didn't need a stopwatch.....just a calendar)
Jag XJ6 (Street and then blew up)
Fiat Brava (Street and really sucked)

That's a start of a list. Wow. I haven't thought about that in a long time. Wish I still had some of them.

With 21-8-13 racing slicks on an autocross it would really stick. It would pull a front wheel off the ground in a hard corner. You kind of fell into it and when getting out the sidewalk and hands were involved. I'm not sure I could get my butt into it today and even if I did it would have to be my coffin because I'd never be able to get out.

Excellent car and has history. Sam Barris, one of the biggest customizers back in the day, created the first ever "Lead Sled" from a '49 Mercury. Love the look.

RACING...Because with baseball, football, basketball, tennis, and golf, you only need one ball

I used to think that I had learned patience as I got older. Then I realized that I just didn't give a shit

You

I wasn't aware that they sold the TR250 and the TR6 the same year. I had to Google that. I hope it's a lack of knowledge thing and not an old age memory thing. My recollection is that the TR250 was a test bed of sorts for the TR6 running gear and interior. I love the way that car squatted on takeoff. Made you feel special. GT6 also had a cool squat.

You're car people too, I see except for the Cricket..

I remember this morning How Fast Sean's 1970-1/2 Camaro was with its Factory LT-1 SBC.
Turbo 400.
3.73 gears in the 12-bolt diff.
It could hookup on Street M+S rated 60 series tires .

He got beat by a 426 Hemi in A 1969 Charger 1 night Street Racing.
Pretty much a Pro Stock Hemi.

The title of this thread is all the cars that you've owned. Let's not ass it up by turning this into a "my buddy had" thread with a bunch of drag race specs. Don't care about 3.73 gears or Pro Stock Hemis…...unless you've owned one.
