    I woulda got baptized about 20 years sooner, stayed single, and/or cut my nuts off.
    This is not a smear on the life I have lived.

    Well since we're talking about any regrets... I should have kept playing with computers in middle school instead of screwing with cars.

    I could have been one of those dot.com millionaires and bought a Lamborghini at 22, and been bankrupt by 26!

    Automotive regrets? The ragtop Nova for $2200, the 65 Chevelle SS for $2000 (passed on that one because it was a powerglide, the car was perfect otherwise) or the '33 Ford 3-window for $3000 are at the top of the list.

    I would have bought that 70 R/T Charger for $150.- back in 1997.

      I regret trading my 69 Firebird with 400 4 spd, in on a 74 Ford pickup. I just HAD to have a pickup to pull the hot chick I was seeing at the time's horse trailer. :rolleyes: :realcrazy: This was around 76 or 77. On a brighter note...I sold the Ford truck and bought a 73 340 Challenger, and ain't been without a Mopar since! :)

          Also I would have definitely NOT passed on buying the 66 Coronet about 5 years ago that was 95% what my first Mopar at age 16 was including colors, engine AC and PW!

          I wouldn’t have gone buck ass wild and tear a complete original VERY clean 1970 Dart all apart because I at the time didn’t like green. I took the whole damn car, unmolested by anyone else, I was the second owner, down to a complete shell. Most likely it’ll never go back together again. This car was truly a rust free car. I’m an idiot.
