In another thread, keith said he wished he had a “do over” on not buying an MGTD for $400.
Here’s a cut and paste.
MG McAnick, You could be right, but there was a TD that I had a chance to buy when I was young. It belonged to a friend. He wanted $400 for it but I passed because a former owner had taken it to Earl Schieb for a $29.95 paint job. They painted everything, including the chrome an ugly light blue.
If only I had a “do over”.
End of quoted material
I’m curious. Of all the cars you have been offered, what cars do you wished you had bought but didn’t, for whatever reason.
I’ll go first.
I passed on an MGTC for $800 in 1969. Granted, I already had my first $400 MGA and a $750 Mercedes 190SL, so it wasn’t like I needed another car. Should have gone for it, even though I needed another car like I needed another hole in my head.
There have been literally dozens, maybe hundreds, of others, but that one has gnawed on me for years. I’ve always liked the “classic” MGs, but I’ve never owned one, just MGAs and MGBs by the dozen.
