Why is the use of progressive in the first one perfect but not in the second?

1. What point were you wanting to make?

2. I’m wanting to buy a new car .


The progressive isn't great in that first sentence. I'd say, "What point were you trying to make?"

Thank you

Tara22. I’m wanting to buy a new car .

This looks some kind of Asian English. It would be better if it had want instead of the word wanting.

I want, not I'm want.
