I'm too young to have regrets about selling anything. Have only had 5 vehicles and still have 3 of them. That's all the ones I've owned alone or with the wife.

LOL!
My neighbor sold his 71 XY Ford Fairmont in 1988 for $500.

Opportunity doesn't knock! It presents it'self when you beat down the door!

I just sold a bike I loved dearly. 2013 KTM Duke. But some of that money got spent (tonight) on my project car, a 1966 Pontiac Tempest pro-touring build. I have full support of my wife, luckily. But I told her we can only have 2 kids, cause it's just a 4 seater now. Otherwise I'll need a second project car.

A guy I went to high school with had one of those cars. It was a pretty nice car.

When I am done with a vehicle its value is determined by weight.

Maybe not every day Lynas, but at least once a week.
It wasn't in mint condition. It had been bastardised a bit. Toploader gerbox and 9" diff.
Floor was cut open to fit a vertical gate shifter in it, but it was well and truely restorable.

I find myself on the net trolling for old Monaro's from time to time.
That's were I came across that orange one.

I did know a bloke who had an A9X back in the day and sold it.
I bet he kicks himself...

Some people I knew back at my old farm that lived in Devon had one. Thing crapped out on them one day down by Crossfield and somehow I ended up going and hauling it back for them. They asked if I could keep it out at the old farm as they had no room in town. Years passed and one day I realized I never saw them around town anymore, never did ever find out where they went nor did I ever hear from them again. When I moved a few years after I last had contact, I didn't want it myself and didn't want to see it go to the scrap yard, so with the understanding of its history I gave it to a acquaintance who wanted it. Have no idea of whatever come of it, never saw him or the car in the 20 years since.

They were front wheel drive weren't they? I seem to remember that.

Contracts are made to be broken, a handshake is the law of God.

Yes. It made the 455 not nearly as fun as it should have been. But likely saved him some money on tires

Was fairly ground breaking at the time as the rule was fwd wasn't able to sustain over 300hp... or that's the rumor. I got to drive one when I was 15-16 and it was kinda neat to see the smoke coming from the front wheels!
