    Cars that you used to want

    When I had a classic 900 (not the 900S, but base 900, sold as the 900i in some countries), I wanted a 900 turbo. I used to think that rich people have the 900 turbo and really rich people had the 9000. I finally got a turbo with the 2005 9-3 (9-3SS)!


    My 900 did have those headlights retrofitted and sourced from Canada as well as that style of grill.

    Another car that I wanted but never got was an Alfa Romeo GTV-6. That I don't regret. I just read this article of the worst cars ever built.

    Though the fastback body, designed by Italian legend Giorgetto Giugiaro, was well-received, the GTV 6’s various gaskets, hoses and other bits that facilitate a vehicle’s sound operation were brittle, flimsy, leaky and just plain bad. For North Americans who watched Alfa abandon their market in the mid-‘90s, a lack of ready replacement parts has made GTV 6 ownership a costly proposition indeed.
    From the BBC, BBC - Autos - Top Gear?s worst cars in the world

    So many cars, so little time..

    When I was in my early 20s, I desired a Ford Probe. Ok, you can laugh.. I just thought they looked so unique and different. At the time I had a rusted Toyota Celica so anything new was desirable.

    I think they still look cool.

    I will not laugh. My 2nd car in the US was a 1996 Ford Probe. However it wasn't my dream car, but I did like it very much. My first dream car as a kid was a Porsche Carrera, then Toyota Celica and Dodge Viper. Nowadays ever since I had to sell my 2003 9-5 Aero and I'm driving a 2002 Volvo XC70, I am just drooling over anything Saab. Gosh, I miss that Aero.
