    Default 383 Magnum, Factory Purple Car, Convertible Challenger! Talk about regrets....

    1971 of many I should not have sold. What vehicles did you all sell and regret now?

    Not one that I owned but rather one that I let get away without me getting to buy it.

    A friend had done a full restoration on a 69 Camaro that he wanted to give to his son. It was beautiful, and I'm not a Chevy guy. Turns out his son didn't want it (dumbass!) and my friend decided to sell it. He tells me he wants $3500 for it. I've got $2000 set aside at the time, around '92, and would have had to borrow the rest. No big deal right? A signature loan for $1500, very doable for me then. And then my wife shot me down. If I had known what was coming, I would have bucked her harder on it. She already had it in the works to leave me and didn't want to take on any debt with me. Smart of her I know but damn! I wanted that car.

    My candle-apple red '67 Mustang, straight-6 200 coupe, automatic transmission, which I owned from 2001-2006, then sold when I got screwed ut of a promotion and had a shortage of cash. 2 months after I sold her, the USAF gave me a $65K severance package...20/20 frickin' hindsight.....

    73 Volkswagen Super Beetle. No rust, heaters worked, interior had no rips, very clean car.

    Owned it about a year or more around 1983 to 1984, and for some reason I sold it. I got about $1800 for it... think it would be worth a bit more now.

    '85 Jeep Scrambler with inline 6 with a nice 4 barrel gas guzzling carb. Darn thing caught fire and died gloriously on the South Las Vegas Strip. It died a warriors death, as during the fire, it somehow started up again and began to roll forward in first gear. Brought a tear to my eye. It was stick shift, so I don't know how the hell it put itself into first gear from neutral and worked the clutch.

    Wow, you had to ask

    67 Plymouth GTX, 440 auto
    several 69 Dodge Darts, including an original 340 4 speed car and an original 383 car
    69 Dodge Coronet, 383 4 speed
    70 Dodge Challenger, 340 auto
    71 Dodge Charger R/T, 440 auto

    I made money on all of them, but I miss them.

    Somehow over the years I've managed to talk myself out of selling my two 68 Barracuda fastbacks. Those will go to the kids.

    Only one I really regret selling was the 1975 FJ-40 Landcruiser I had. :(

    Some others I sort-of wish I still had:
    1951 Ford F-100 Panel Van
    1973 Dodge Challenger (it had a 383 Magnum (not original), 4-spd, black-on-black)
    1978 Pontiac Firebird

    And, seeing as how I just sold my 2000 Subaru Impreza on Friday, I will probably regret that one in about a year or two. :( I had posted it in the "rides" thread. I had converted it to right-hand-drive, and complete Japanese STi Version III RA spec (which, for you who do not speak Subaru means that it was factory stock motor-wise, and fast as a scalded pig. Like... it wasn't set up to drag-race and I was 3-car-lengths ahead of a new 550HP supercharged Shelby Mustang in an impromptu speed trial... the motor was stock, as was the close-ratio factory race transmission, but the suspension was full on race coil-overs, and it had the huge Brembos from the new STi. Man... I think maybe I do miss it now)

    I will remember that if the monsterous creature is within clubbing range, it is a tight situation, and start clubbing. This is true even if my firearm still works. No reason not to club and shoot at the same time.

    1967 Lime Gold Mustang, all power, 289 V8. My father bought it new and he sold it to me for my first car. I am still looking for that car to buy back.
