there are a couple of cars that i had the chance to buy but didnt. my list is:

1984 Coupe Deville- it was very nice and in perceft shape. looked like it just rolled off the show room floor, low mileage (80k miles) for the year. stored for about 5 years in a temp. controlled garage.

2000 DHS- it was 2003 and i was looking for a Cadillac. had been looking for a 93-96 Fleetwood Brougham for two years and couldnt find one. seen that DHS, fully loaded with only 13k miles on it. didnt buy it though cause i did find my 93. still wish i could have got it.

1998 Z06 Vette- DAMN!!!!! forgot about it. wish i would have bought it though cause it was a Vette! got my CTS though and if i didnt the CTS would be right here instead of the Vette.

1992 Brougham D'Elegance- beautiful is the only word to describe it. had 72k miles on it. they only wanted 1,5k for it! i bought wheels for my 95 Lincoln instead :thepan:.

1964 Impala- IT WAS A DROP TOP!!!!!!!!! cherry, it was so nice! i dont remember how many miles were on it but i talked to the owner. he told me it had been in his family since it was new. his dad only brought it out on sunny days, never been out in the rain. they wanted 9k for it. it needed new seals (duh) and a new battery (and gas treatment).

I could have bought a '95 Camaro Z28 6 speed for $6000 OBO. I went back the next day to see if it was there, and someone had already bought it.

1987 Cadillac Brougham, 61k miles, dark blue, dark blue velour interior, $1000.

Dad said no because I was too young and that was too old of a car for me.

My uncles 1969 GTO convertable. He sold the thing for $6,000. It was a little ragged out, but had just had around $10k dropped into a semi-restoration. And this being a really desirable car, it was clearly a steal. This was only 2 years ago, and I was 14 so I was too young. I didn't really appreciate cars then anyways, not like I do now at least...

I had a '77 Olds 442 on order, Black with Silver striping. I let the bank talk me into a '76 Grand Prix. The GP was really nice. An SJ with a 400, dark Blue w/black top and interior but, I wish I had gotten the 442. I might have still had it!

Sunbeam Tiger. I bought a 68 droptop Firebird with the 400 package instead.
