Wish I had bought that car:

Mine was a '89 20th Anniversary TA. 2.8L turbocharged V6. I'm gonna find one, some day. Almost bought this one...damn sure wish I had:



Anybody else got one they should have just gone ahead and bought?

honestly, a 98 ss camaro.

midnight blue, t-top, 6-speed, leather, with an aftermarket exhaust. 30k miles for $12,000. it was being sold b/c the guy who had it (older guy) couldnt drive it anymore, and wanted an auto pickup. it was put up for sale about 4 months after i got my car. i could have gotten that and used the extra cash for mods. i really like all domestics, dodge would be the only one i dont particularly care for, but their trucks are the best looking ones out now imo.

now i like my car, dont get me wrong, but that thing would have been nice also.

1991 GT Convertible. White with pony wheels and only ~50k miles. Garage kept. One of the nicest foxes I've seen for the price, but it was an automatic.

In 1982 I found a 1971 Barracuda for sale for 2,200. When I got to the house it was a Hemi Cuda.It was a Sunday so I had to wait for monday morning to get some money. I gave the guy 500 to hold it till the next morning. When I got there he had sold it for 2,500 and gave me my money back

omg that blows^ my dads friend has a story kinda like that, he had a 71 chevelle i think ( it might have been a 70) any way it had the nicer engine. i think he said the thing that was diffrent was it was a 454 with solid lifters? i dont remember it all. and way it was a convertible with a 4 spd. and way he picked the car up in like 76 for cheap (4k) and then tried to mod it, my dad calls the guy a pizon (sp?) and he ended up screwing the car up and junked it. turned out only 15 were ever made in that combination and they now sell for well over 125k

mine is a 1971-ish chevelle with a 454 in it. I was like 12 at the time and it was like 12k but ever since i saw that car i have wanted it. So much torque and power in that thing, its insane. My dad had one and he tells me about all the suff he did in his chevelle. But i am extremly happy with the mustangs i have.

You may laugh at me...but my car I wish I would have bought was a late 70's Jeep wagoneer woody edition. Guy had swapped over engines to a mopar 4 something if I remember correctly, front and rear lockers, suspension lift, perfect shape, 6k. I almost bought it for my first car...until gas prices went up, I wish I had that thing to mess around in alot of times.

I was thinking about picking up an 03 cobra last fall and sometimes I wish I had bought it, but then again, the payments would be A LOT more then the GT.
