I regret selling my 98 EL futura for a Telstar TX5 turbo (later stolen and replaced with my EB)
but I needed to save for a house and I couldn't afford to save or make house payments if I kept the car.

I had a 1970 Mk2 Cortina which I left down the dump, (moving out the district). Drove her down, took the battery out.

i didnt sel mine it was a 72 gt capri v6 the motor blew up and instead of just buying a new motor i decieded to strip the car.
that was in 1996 the body has been done a couple of times now but it still sits in my garage half undercoat the other half bare metal.

Yes, a few actually...
My first XD ute, well I didn't sell it but wrote it off...
I'd still have it today if I hadn't done that.
The best times of my life were with that car!
It won't be so bad when I can find another...
(Any good, original XD utes with no rust apply here!)

MY XE wagon, I spent a fortune on it.
351, LTD goodies, electric steel sunroof, etc...
Now I'm on the verge of repeating the whole process again...heaps more $$$ dammit!!

My ED XR6, actually I didn't regret selling this car until after I'd traded it on the XR8. It was only then that I appreciated just how good the XR6 really was!!!

My ED XR8, still a great car, but I'd left it totally standard.
I knew of the potential, but never exploited it.
I never really regretted selling this until after I'd bought my house and heard one driving around with a decent exhaust system..... Oh well.

I'm sure there will be more but I'm learning to just live with the memories.. slowly!!

Ed :)

My AU2 XR8 Herrod Stroker. Damn I miss the power and more importantly the torque.
