I'm still kicking myself...
 
I think out of all those things I regret (having to do with cars that is), this is the one thing that I wish I could take back the most...

I tried to put it out of my mind a while ago but today I was flipping through an old photobucket account and came across these pictures of a car that I sold a few years ago. It really kind of makes me sick to even think about it.

So here are the pictures I found. This was my 1992 Civic VX, only had 100k miles on it when I sold it. Bone stock except for H&R sport lowering springs and some aftermarket wheels that were on it when I bought it.

I had it completely paid off. It was in just about the best condition of any VX I have ever seen. It didn't burn a drip of oil, it didn't drip oil at all, the bottom of the engine was completely dry and clean. <-- very rare for any of my cars.

Anyways. It really saddens me to think that I sold this car, I really wish I still had it. I will most likely never find another one in this shape.

I hope the current owners are taking care of her and not turning it into some rice rocket, that would really make me cry.

Anyways, so what about you guys? Ever sold a car or done something to your car that you really regret later on??

I regret making my car fast. I bought $2500 worth of performance parts. I could of used that money to sell my car and buy a better car. I sold all the performance parts because they were getting me nowhere.

Sometimes I regret buying a damn auto dx and not just buying an hf with a crap body or waiting a bit longer, though in the end I think, neat, now I know how to do so much I wouldn't unless I blew the engine on the hf, :p

VXs come around, you can always snatch another, :)

Wow, that was one gorgeous piece of machinery!

I regret not buying a VX when they came out. I still remember the ads and I actually went to look at one on the lot.

I regret not swapping a 543 manual transmission into my Dodge Spirit.

I regret the fact that I never tracked my mileage so religiously before now...

I've sold probably 20-25 cars by now... but I still regret selling my last 65 Mustang. It leaked oil and tranny fluid, and the engine needed a rebuild, but it was fun to drive and everywhere you went people would compliment the car.

I regret buying anything GM Ive bought in the past. I wish they would go under and go away.
