If you've ever thought about a car you used to own and lamented with a shake of the head, "I never never should have sold it," there's a website that could help you out. It's not going to help someone like me since the whip I most want back (pictured above) was lost to a traffic incident. But if you can dig up the make, model and VIN of that car you just can't get out of your head, and post it in the forums at the Lost Car Registry website, then perhaps the interwebs can help you track down that long lost Pulsar NX.

The site was started by Keith Ingersoll who never could get his dad's Mach I out of his head. The problem was that the '69 Mustang had been sold 20 years prior. With the internet causing global shrinkage, his idea of creating a network of automotive paleontologists has promise. Just remember to be careful when you start turning over rocks, and steel yourself for the potential heartbreak of finding your past vehicular love rotting away with a family of skunks holding court in the trunk.

      Don't joke, my buddy had an old Pulsar NX. We rode in that like we were the coolest kids on the block. We have moved on to nicer cars but we both wish he had that car again.

        I loved my Pulsar NX, my Datsun/Nissan Pulsar NX (Nissan was just making its presence known). Java Brown paint, angular shape, funky beige striped seats, cool "pulsar" shaped wheel covers and a nifty 5-speed stick. Back in 1983, and it being my first new car, it was way cool.

      77 Datsun 280z ... Copper brown w/ brown interior.

      Oh, wait, my cousin wrecked that.

      Okay, then , '01 GTI VR6, Silver-on-black, non-split 5-spoke wheels, wood interior ... How could I have been so stupid?

      Heh, we used to have an '86 740, burgundy with a tan interior. Hand-crank sunroof FTW! haha! Bought it brand new and sold it in '95. Man I miss that car...

      I don't wanna know where my cars go... I remember seeing some punk kid grinding the gears in the JDM Integra XSi I sold way back when, and I felt like dragging him out of it and kicking his ass. lol

      Crapola. I went to browse, selected Audi and nothing came up. Not one person has listed an Audi. What are the chances of someone posting my specific S4? Slim to... what am I saying? None to none.

      I often regret having sold my 2001 Aurora - even though Olds went to the grave, it would have been the one car (besides my '90 Z24 Cavalier - my first new car) that I would have kept around or wanted to keep.

      Yeah EuroCars! I totally own a S90 from that same dealership in groton!

        Tell Mark I say hi, I've bought several cars from him over the years.

      This makes me feel like I should hang onto my SRT-4... I bought it brand new off the show room floor (literally) in 2003 and five years later still only have 34K miles on the clock. Never failed me and I love the thing.

      740 turbo nice, was it an 88-89? I had a '90 Dark grey metallic, dark grey interior. Can't count how many hours I washed and waxed that car..

      1988 Audi 5000CS Quattro. What a sleeper of a car! I sold it so I could buy my '94 Jeep Cherokee. As much as I like my Jeep, in retrospect, I should have kept the Audi.

      1970 Datsun 240Z. Factory Orange re-painted to a dark metallic brown Pontiac color, mag wheels and Abarth exhaust. Sold to a squadron-mate when I was transferred overseas. Saw it again about 8 years later. He still owned it and wasn't willing to part with it. I still think about that car.
