Started to put this under the previous thread, but thought that it deserved a thread of its own. I'm sure others have plenty of automotive regret stories. I regret not buying a 1970 Maserati Ghibli coupe for $7500 about 10 years ago. I regret not making the deal on a 1959 Corvette for $5000 because some other buzzards ruined the deal for me. I regret not making the deal on another 1959 ex-fuel injected Corvette for $2000 because the seller didn't keep his word and wait for me to get off work and bring him the cash, even though I had looked at the car the night before and called to confirm the deal at 8 o'clock the next morning. I regret not buy a complete driveable 1957 fuel injected Corvette for $10,000 over 10 years ago even though it was not originally a fuel injected car. As always, it got bought by another wheeler dealer type who immediately took it up north to Bloomington for a fat profit. (After he changed out the accelerator rod to the proper round type in order to make it "look" more original. And probably fool an uneducated buyer.) I regret not buying a 1967 Pontiac Beaumont convertible that was lying in a salvage yard back in 1979. A very rare car that was an original big block car which was a weird cross between a Pontiac GTO and a Chevy Chevelle. It was only sold in Canada. I saw the same car about 5 years later in a wheeler dealers back yard. Another loss. I regret not buying 3 or 4 different 1957 Chevy convertibles that I looked at. But at the time, the cars were either horribly ragged or grossly overpriced or both. I regret that a friend of mine and myself didn't buy a 1962 Chevy Impala Supersport for $300 on a very rainy and muddy day because the wiring was trashed under the hood and we couldn't even begin to sort out the mess and get the car started. In a similar vein, I regret not buying a 1962 Chevy Impala Supersport CONVERTIBLE that was sitting on top of a pile of cars at a salvage yard. A very sad loss. Also regret passing up a completely stock original 1965 Chevy convertible for $2500 around 1984. About the same time I got a lead on a 1960-70 something XKE Jaguar for $2500. Never chased after that one. Probably should have. A close friend of mine has several similar stories that I'm well familiar with. A 1967 Camaro SS for $700 around 1976 with only a crunched side door. He passed. A 1965 SS396 Chevrolet Impala for about $1500 and a 1965 Pontiac GTO with tripower intake for about a little more. The Impala overheated on the test drive and the GTO was a bit too high priced. He also passed on a 1968 big block Corvette because the car had been wrecked at one time and it "crabbed" sideways as it drove down the road. I could go on if anybody cares.
