One of the biggest driving forces in the used car market, especially for cars that appreciate in value, is nostalgia. That rose-colored feeling that paints every automotive wonder as an impossibly high standard is what makes gems like the Toyota Supra and Acura NSX valuable today, and therein lies your challenge. You will take a stroll down memory lane and find, on eBay, the cars you loved as a kid for under a $15,000 budget. Oh joy.

Here are the rules:

  • One entry per post.
  • Cars must have a realistic selling price under $15,000.
  • Cars must be operable/easily restored to running condition.
  • Completed and sold listings can be included.
  • You can add modifications, as long as it doesn’t go over the total budget.
  • Write a short reason why your loved this car as a child.

Start here and find a car that hits you right in the feels.
