Really Wish I Had Held On To It And Let It Sit. — The car looked good but had way too many things wrong with it to justify keeping it. At the time there would have been no way I could have made money on it. On the other hand if I had held onto it I would have been able to make tons of money on it...oh well!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Bad investment at the time.

Cons: Pretty much everything that didn't work....which was a lot of things.
