Hello out there,
I was browzing through this forum again and got to thinking...over the years what kinds of cars that I wished I didn't sell or wished I would have bought.
SOLD-70 Ford Galaxie 500-390 engine.
SOLD-64 Chevelle 6 cyl. my grandmas car.
SOLD-71 440 Sixpack Challenger.
MISSED-70 Boss 302 Mustang.
MISSED-69 Cougar convertible-XR7, I think.
MISSED-70 Coronet (HEMI)
MISSED-Cyclone convertible. can't remember year, but was a pace car replica.
MISSED-68 340 Cuda
There have been others...these cars just the highlights...so to speak. Most of the "missed" list were cars I could have gotten in the early to mid eighties. Oh well, was just married without much money anyway! But, oh man, I sure wish I had some of them now!! Anybody else out there that has a list of their own? Just wondering!! Be cool everyone!!

Capriman,
Man, that is one cool car. It would be neat to know how many were built. If we only knew then what we know now. Oh well...so be it.

Had the opportunity to buy a '65 Shelby GT350 for 2K. Buy the Shelby? Get married?

Got married! She's stuck around for 35 years January '07.
