Ahhh, the end of the year - and the memories of the past....


After participating in this thread:
https://bobistheoilguy.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/topics/4619704/

I thought of the cars I wish I still had.

1) 1968 Plymouth Satellite (started life as a 318/3-spd car - ended up as a 440/4-spd car)
2) 1973 Road Runner (Originally a 400 big block car; had 4.10's)
3) 1956 Chevy Bel Air 2 door hardtop - project car, but sold WAAAAY too cheap
4) 1976 Chevy Cheyenne Super - 4WD shortbed, FULLY optioned, factory 8-track! (LOL!)
5) 1987 Pontiac Trans-Am (fully loaded)

Note: I had more, *ahem* "female experiences", in that '76 Chevy than any other vehicle.
I really miss those youthful days sometimes.

Which cars(s), truck(s), & bikes do you miss the most?

Never sold a car. Have scrapped/abandoned/given away a few, and some of them should have been savable, which is a bit regrettable.

However, my parents sold my Heinkel Kabine while I was working in London, without any warning or consultation.

I was pretty [censored]-off about that, but what can you do?

Could have taken them to court I suppose. Too late now.

I started on motorcycles and must of had 4 or 5 before my first car (still had a bike or two though).

Anyway my first real motorcycle, and the vehicle I still miss the most, was my 1980 Yamaha SR500. It was a kick-start only bike with a 499cc air-cooled 4-stroke single cylinder SOHC 2-valve engine. I bought it to go to university on, and it was my freedom machine, it opened the world to me. Camping on the weekends, taking cute girls for rides, learning how to fix my own machine. It was my bike and when I wanted to go somewhere, that is how I got there. I began to modify it a bit and turn it into a bit of a Cafe Racer. It was so much fun in the hills, rolling on and off the throttle, feeling the Thump of the engine, learning to be smooth and carry as much corner speed as possible.

It was taken from me early by a out of control car that slammed into me sideways. The bike bucked and threw me off to safety (I landed in somebodies front yard) just before the bike slid under the car and got bent into a mess.

To this day I can still remember the feeling of exploring those lone twisting roads through the mountain forests with that big single pulling me forward power-pulse by power-pulse. It was good in the dirt too, so I didn't mind too much when the road turned to gravel. I made friends with a few mountain hippies who would let me sleep on their couch, stare at their fire and stay the night. Five hundred relaxed miles later, and time to go back to class for Monday's lecture.

My only regret was having to sell my 1992 750i. V12, short wheelbase, sport package + Recaro seats. Full aftermarket Blaupunkt HiFi. Two sets of BBS wheels.

Truly the perfect BMW, but I had to sell it due to the 25 year import law.

Well if we bring in bikes, I really regret selling my Rickman Metisse, and also the Cheney Triumph I had at the same time. The Cheney is a rare beast, but the Rickman I miss most...it was my road bike, street legal - motocross bike on gravel roads. I've spent the decades since trying to find the bike that could mould to my soul like the Rickman did - no skill required, it went where my eyes pointed. And the XLV750, rare, and even more so now. I thought that was the one I was going to keep forever...oh well.
