A lot of broken parts does not make you a racer; it makes you a slow learner.

Nope.  But there is a part I want back: the L89 396 I sold to buy my Buick.  It should have gone into my MCSS as I had originally planned.

I have my first car, 1970 GS455 and my first new car, 1987 WE4 so no, I don't regret any of the others or I would have kept them. Funny thing is the GS was fifteen yrs old when I bought it in 85. The T I've had for just over thirty yrs. They are both beaters but they are my beaters and I like em.

How about the 1 you should have bought?
For me it was a 63 split window fuel injected 4 speed vette. I passed on it for 2795 C and paid 2995 C for a 70 duster 340.

Honestly...
My '82 Honda CIVIC.  It was a work horse that never failed me. 
My '82 Ford Bronco.  Of the 15 cars and trucks I had in high school that was my favorite...it wasn't the fastest, but we had the most fun in it.
Other than that, nope...didn't really ever have a car worth a crap until I got the GN and I still have it after close to 20 years now.

81 S10 - Too many memories and great stories that went along with that truck. Gave it to my sister when I joined the military. She promptly traded it


83 Datsun 280Z with T tops - bought off a soldier for $300 bones because it wouldn't go into any gear. Promptly installed a new clutch and was on the road. Tore up many a leg with that car while stationed at Bragg. Made many trips up to Duke university and down to myrtle beach in that car


87 white TR - first Buick. Although I got the limited out of the deal, the fella promptly blew a head gasket and the car is still sitting

That is beyond bad!  I wouldn't even post that! :icon_smile:   I guess it could have been worse if you passed on a Shelby Cobra 427.
