I went from a '94 Volvo 850 Turbo sedan to a 2001 GS430. I loved the Volvo; it was the car I learned to drive on and it was fully loaded, fun, and totally reliable. In 20+ years of ownership it never failed to start or left me stranded. But parts availability became a serious issue, and I found myself getting gouged for parts (eg, $350 for a used headlight for a junkyard). It was hard to let go of; I donated it to NPR, of all places.

I'll play lol

2003 G35 Coupe 6mt

To date the best car I've ever owned.. I'll probably never feel the same way about a car again in my lifetime I probably spent the most amount of money on this car in aftermarket mods.



2007 BMW 335I Manual

I enjoyed this car the most but it was in the shop so much that BMW NA ended up buying it back from me. (lemon law)



2004 IS300 Sport Design 69k miles when sold totally regret selling her.. the 2gs is similar but is less nimble..



2010 LS460 (Weekend warrior)

I still own this car but only take her out on the weekends..

I know how you feel.
I too had a G35 coupe that I loved.

Sold it before I got married and although my G35 sedan's awesome, it's not the same feeling the coupe had

The GS4 is a nice alternative though

Default In another life

An X 1/9

And my previous daily

The daily next to the only photo of my Exxie...covered :/

I work for Toyota and was a factory rep for a few years. So no need for a car then, but I still had a project X 1/9. Sold it in 2011. Can't find any damn photos, but it was red, like this one.
The white car is a Volvo 850R with turbo upgrade and supporting mods. Never dyno'd but 300whp is a guess. For a fwd car, it would hang with some real sports cars.

my fiat was a full mefasquirt turbo project using an uno turbo manifold, mistu eclipse turbo injectors, vw puller and pusher fuel pump. GM crank trigger and ford magnetic pickup (and many other mods) ��Sold it when I lived in MD for pennies on the dollar. ...I can't find any photos anywhere ��

Traded my 1978 Datsun B210 with 75,000 miles and 28 city MPG for my 2001 Black Cherry GS300.

Here is the Datsun:

Haha, yea, maybe a little.

The GS needed a few sensors (O2 and Oil Control Valve) and has a issue with the 'VSC' and 'VSC OFF' lights (still trying to find the exact pins to bridge to fix it, a lot of conflicting info on here), it had a few leather tears, needed tires and smelled like an ash tray.

Datsun had grip of new and "upgraded" bits.
