One car I really missed out on owning, was the Ford Fusion - I love that car
But instead of the Fusion, I ended up buying the 1.3 MPFi Gypsy - so that ended well!

1. Daewoo Matiz: Coudn't buy one when it was launched. Sadly, the car ( and the company ) ceased to exist very soon from the Indian market.
2. Maruti Zen
3. HM Contessa
4. Standard 2000 : Was a kid when the car was launched.

Excellent Thread!!!
My take on :
Cars I miss on owning:
1. Maruti 800SS : I just love that car and would like to keep it with me forever.
2. Mahindra Classic : Have read so nice things about it and if I ever buy a Jeep, it would be this one.
3. Fiat Palio : I was neutral about this car but after owning Fiat for the first time now, I wish that if the clock tick backwards by few years and if I were to buy the car again this would be the first one to own.

I would also like to mention the cars I would not take even given to me free :
1. Toyota Etios and Liva : I can't stand that smiling grill. I generally like all the cars but these two have absolutely nothing in them to make me like them even 0.01%.
2. Swift DZire : I hate old DZire as much as I love the Swift.
3. Hyundai i10 : I would prefer Santro Xing any day over i10.
