    I was thinking about this the other day, when I waste my hours trawling the net looking at cars for sale, I see a model I used to own, something I sold cheap that now has risen in value, and kick myself, Il give a few example, I'm not talking millions of pounds, just enough to think, Damn!
    Toyota starlet GT Turbo, sold under a grand!
    Lancia Delta HF Turbo, sold under a grand!
    There are probably more but I'm sure other people have had worse.

    Cheers Kai

    I'd love one of these, especially if I could have it for £700 : )

    I haven't sold anything that's worth more now, but I do have a Mk2 GTI 16v which is worth a bit more now than what I paid for it! :)

    No, bought in 2008 and still got it. Better than ££ in the bank methinks, and great fun when the sun shines. It's not great fun often enough!
