I don't regret selling anything from a dollars and cents perspective, meaning i have never really undersold something or felt like I gave it away. I do miss selling some things that I just wasn't in the right position to own anymore, but I got what I needed to out of them.

I have more buyers remorse than I do regret on selling some things.

As I have gotten a little older and matured a bit I have tried to focus more on something that my father taught me when I was a kid.

Never make a purchase based on emotions, cars, trucks, houses, etc. If you do, you'll always over pay or under sell.....

Same here. There's been more impulse buying than impulse selling in my life.

I've never *had* to sell something. Generally if I'm selling something it's to upgrade to the next thing, or something I just don't want any more.

pretty healthy 454/th400 in a 72 C-20. it would pull pretty hard up to around 7500 rpm
like other people I parted it out in the process of upgrading, mainly because parents didn't want a truck junkyard in the cow pasture.

My 686 is my favorite centerfire hangun to shoot. I wish I hadn't sold my 78 F150.

I had it once, the morning after a softball tournament in 95 weather. You pretty much think your world is coming to an end. After the wife was finished with her hair, we headed into the ER. Lasted about 45 minutes, came out on its own before they gave me anything for it. They did get to see it on the monitor though.

I do miss my Turbo Toyota. Just didn't have the funds to fix it back then. But it was a blast to drive around.

I think it was laughing at the part about 7500 rpm in a 454. Sure, some can do it, but not many.

I miss a couple trucks and motorcycles out of nostalgia. They are pretty much just the vehicles I bought when I was 16-18 on a teenagers budget. I thought they were all sweet and treated them like they rolled of the showroom floor. Realistically they are all probably clapped out pieces of shit now.
