It’s not exciting to admit, but the likelihood of purchasing a vintage ride just to be let down is a real threat. Whether purchasing a car after spending years thinking about how great it will be or buying back a car that was influential in your past just to find you remembered it far greater than it was, it’s a tough pill to swallow.

We have expectations for our cars, and if those expectations aren’t met it can really sour our opinion. These expectations can be self-set, or can be built up through advertising and conversation with other owners. Only once it is too late do we know that our expectations will never be reached.
It’s not all bad though. In finding out what you don’t want, it is easier to identify that which you do want. If only we could learn those lessons without having to endure the learning process. Share the car you wish you could forget with us below, so we can all learn from your experience and hopefully not repeat it.
