you can all go out and buy one again....

If you really miss the car well stump up and go get another, easy fix.

I would if i could and mine is probably the most affordable

This is the only car I wish I still had. My first Ferrari when I was 21.

Ok I'll bite............... Why ?

I have only driven one of those and it did nothing for me.

The only cars that I wish I still owned are the ones that are currently worth million(s) more than I sold them for. I would love another chance to sell those :(

bought back my 3.0CSL, my E30 M3.

Still have first option on my old E46 M3 CSL but he's unlikely to sell it!

There are 2 distinct variations to this question that come up :

1) Which car do you wish you still owned?
2) Which car do you miss?

I miss a number of them for varying reasons. Some were incredible to drive, some were the pinnacle of automotive engineering at the time, some were art to behold...... etc
When you ask what car do I wish I still owned, that's different. I don't think I have ever been forced to sell a car. I sold each for a reason that was correct at the time. I might miss them occasionally; but if I wanted to still own them I would have them in the garage. So then it becomes a question of missed economic opportunities for me. I love the deal, it is the nature of the beast for better or worse.

I was tested a few years back when my late fathers Testarossa reappeared after 20+ years of obscurity. I thought long and hard about buying it back for sentiment. In the end it came down to cold hard facts. I have his 1st Ferrari that he bought new in 1978. It has had an unbroken 38 year tenure in the family, so sentiment is covered. The Testarossa is not a great Ferrari and I did 18,000 miles in it so I know it well. If I bought it I would have spent a fortune on deferred maintenance and then I would rarely drive it. So what would be the point? Obviously I didn't buy it; but if I had I would be selling it for a $100k + profit now :)
