What was the 1 car you did not get that you regret? Why?
After just posting a SCAMMED car I wanted was just wondering what car everybody wished they would have gotten but for some reason didn't or couldn't? I know I said only one but I got 2 cars I regret.
The first being about 2 weeks ago could have had my hands on
98 Supra twin turbo 6spd with 60000 miles for $5000 - did not have the money not as big of mistake as the one below. I will FOREVER regret not getting it.
About 8 years ago when my husband & I were dating for about a year he wanted a
COMPLETE RUNNING 69 Mach 1 Mustang for $1000- I doubt I will ever live it down. I forever regret it. I am not into Ford's but I would take a 69 Mach or the new 2007 GT500. I wish I would not have been so stubborn as we would have been sitting on a gold mine. ****!!!
Instead we got 89 Pontiac Firebird 305HO which my husband got his first DUI. His account of the night worth reading for a good laugh:
I was in my 87 305 HO running from the cops DRUNK in the rain, actually getting AWAY through 4 counties, adrenaline pumping when I could not see red & blue lights anymore when all of a sudden the guardrail jumped out and took me for a 120 foot ride. I spun around and the other guardrail on the other side picked up the slack & took me for another 50 foot ride. LOL. I am thankful I did not get hurt nor anybody else for that matter. My car pretty much had a slight guardrail indentation down the car from one bumper to the other on BOTH sides. I did not have the heart to keep it as it reminded me of the **** jumping guardrails so I gave it to my brother who drove it like that for a full year until I took it back from him fixed most of it & sold it. It was a lesson learned & I will NEVER drink & drive again, We all do stupid **** sometimes we get away with it sometimes things just jump out & smack us into reality. Oh the cops got me after hitting the guard rail slid between 2 cop cars back onto highway a few more miles when my car finally ran out of gas just as I was about to loose them AGAIN. ****. What is really messed up this is all true I am sitting here laughing now but at the time it was not funny. I got pretty banged up bouncing off the doors and windshield. That next day I was sore. Boys & girls you got to be careful driving them in the rain but when you are drunk it is FAR more dangerous. Do not drink & drive. I lost a very impressive 305HO due to my stupidty, not to mention my license for the previous 2 years & next year.
Can't wait to hear your stories. Maybe if I would have got the MACH 1 my husband would have never got his DUI, but would have, should have, could have does not change what happened. Happy Holidays.
