A long drive. Delay at the bank. “I’ll sleep on it.” You can miss out a deal for any number of reasons. If the right car appears at the right price, you’ve just got to get there to claim it.
Life doesn’t always work that way though, which means sometimes, your dream car gets away.

Car enthusiasts are a lot like fisherman when we think about those ones that escaped our grasp. Even if we don’t need another car, or have space for another car, or have money to pay for another car, we’ll peruse for sale listings as if casting out a baited hook with an already full stomach and fish hold. Who knows what you might catch? It might even justify releasing a few from the current stock.
The best deals seem to be fleeting, like a nibble on the hook but with a pull to set the line goes slack. Even just a little hesitation can mean a miss (and some regret). Tell us below about the time you missed the perfect automotive score.
