Which of your previous vehicles do you wish you still had? For me it would be my 99 Lightning. Had to get rid of it for a regular truck due to camping/boathauling/dogs. The Lightning could barely tow my mountainbikes!

I got my first car when I was 33 years old. I'm going to enjoy telling that to my kids when they are 16.

Anyway, out of the two I've owned to date, I probably miss the 2001 Saab 9-5 most.

Never owned one, but I always wanted a Subaru Baja

I'm totally the same. I normally hate pickups, but I've always really wanted a Baja.

Rofl at the Baja if you guys ever drive one of those and you see a Tundra1500 roar by and the driver laughing hysterically at you --- That'll be me.

I miss my first car a 1992 Red Ford Explorer aptly dubb'd the "Exploder" when I discovered a leaky gas line due to the smell. I lost her in a 40mph head on collision with a Mercury(ewwww..)... It was an elderly lady hopp'd up on Perk's and recovering from hip surgery that ran a red light and caused the accident. I was probably going 15mph she was going 40+ it was a big smash and the front end of my truck broke off. But her car was completely smashed. Had to pull the old lady out as she passed out from impact and await EMT's. I was only a few hundred yards from my house too. Very scary incident.

My first car (of the two I've owned, including the current one) was a Mazda 626 (which I named Stitch, for obvious reasons). What I really miss the most is the oscillating dashboard A/C. Why Mazda stopped that feature, and why no other cars ever seem to have adopted them, I don't know. I think the Mazda 626s have had that feature since the mid-80s, but the new ones today don't have it.

Mine was the Buick Grand National I had in high school. It had been pretty badly maintained before I got my hands on it, but it was a blast to drive. The Knight Rider fan in me love the little "TURBO BOOST" LEDs that lit up green, then orange, then red when you nailed the accelerator.

I drove a friends GN in high shool. It was fun to drive. Not as fun as the Lightning though.

How was the traction in the lightning? I have ran into a few that really had traction issues with a couple mods done to em... I always loved the lightnings, the sound of the supercharger is amazing.

When I graduated from the graduate school in 1990's, I didn't have any money. So my dad gave me 1971 toyota pickup long cab. I always wanted a pickup and when I finally got it. It was the best and the coolest car I've had. Now I drive toyoto FJ Cruiser, which is also great. But I miss that beat up toyota pickup truck. My buddies would just hop on on the back (back then mandatory seat belt law was just getting started in most states) and off we went fishing, biking, (no golf then, I didn't pick up this sadistic game until much later)...

Non existant from a dig and mine was bone stock. Around about 30 you could go wot and it would stick to the road and scream. It was definately a blast.

My first car I miss the most, certainly not because it was the nicest vehicle I've ever owned, but the majority of my best driving memories were made in that POS! And I learned how to drive a 5-speed in it.

Cost me $600 cash, and and about $1600/year for liability insurance.

    • Shot a -3 68 yesterday, first time breaking par from tees that are 6000+ yds. 4 birdies and 1 bogey, 13 GIR and 28 putts.  Finished the back 9 really solid, had 70 yds left after my tee shot on 16, hit the approach shot to 3 feet and made the putt, then had 100 yds left for my 3rd on 17 and hit that one to a foot.  Been working pretty hard lately on my priority piece in my full swing and been practicing a lot of 8-10 foot putts too and my first 2 birdies were both from 9 feet so nice to see the work is starting to pay off
    • The round I played yesterday was the first time when both my SG:D and SG:A were better than the 10 handicap level.  That's pretty good, especially since I know what I need to work on in terms of long game (and that has been improving a bit, too). 
    • Day 70 (6/13/21) - My wife filmed me taking swings with an 8-iron and Driver (w/o a ball) in the backyard. Positions seemed pretty good in the backswing, but in the downswing, I noticed that I have a tendency to let the club open up as I started down, thus requiring a correction at impact. Based on this information, I did several more swings focusing on keeping the clubface square to my line throughout the swing. Will work on ingraining this feeling again tomorrow. 
    • Every other weekend I play a modified version of match play with a friend of mine.  We play all 18.  Today I lost 8 to 6.  However...we also keep a cart score:  the winning/tying score, each hole, being the cart score for that hole.   Our previous low cart score had been +4.  This morning we managed a +3.  
    • Whoever chose this course (me) should be punished. And @georgep too. Apologies.
