Ever had a car you just could'nt part with

Well a few weeks back i put up my GTR for sale and had a few offers on the usaul swaps and stuff and even had a bloke call me up saying he would pay the asking price if i had said paper work for all work done (i do) then it came to the crunch and i could'nt do it.
Mad a sale in this day and age and i turned it down.
so have any of you had a car or bike that you could'nt sell because of the love for it as much as it pisses you of being under it as much as in it.

Yeah I had a Nissan Bluebird once (1.6LX ) and I just couldn't part with it. Because it was a shed and no-one would dare buy it.

definitely feel that way about my Skyline (SATAN). Even though i've cursed it and threatened to burn it i cant imagine me ever getting rid of it. Its just a stunning car and attracts attention like a tranny at a boy scout convention lol
It costs me a fortune to run and fix but it just makes me feel so fantastic every time i drive it. Cant wait to put an RB30 in it. lol
Regards, Thwish

Same here with my current R33 Gtst, been very tempted to burn it as it's costing me a forune.......then again every time its working and I put my foot down it changes my mind.....SEEMS to be coming together mechanically so time to start making it look like a decent car I think.

My current R33 GTST, work is punishing me at the moment with pay cuts \ reduced hours etc etc so will get it through its MOT and maybe SORN it for a few months till I know where I am, people have suggested selling it - WTF - I'd rather sell my kidney than go there
