Everyone has a moment that could of been. Here is my story. If Jeff from Spokane is reading this , you know it well.

Jeff told me his dad knew a guy in Portland Oregon that owned the number 1 AC cobra 289 car. Raced it at PIR for years . Stored it in a car trailer next to his house. When he told me at that time it was in pieces. But all there. I told him to tell his dad , when it comes up for sale tell me.

As time passed come to find out the gentleman sold it two weeks before I was told. I wanted to round up 9 other investors to purchase and restore it. Then run it at auction. A high end investment that I felt would be in the millions. The gentleman sold it for $470K . SAAC just posted in a news letter today. It sold at auction for 12,500,000.00 . Yes I was right and missed my moment. SAD! But on better news I did stay in a holiday inn express once. LOL......

Tell your missed moment?

68 GT500 KR Convertible for 15k. 20yrs or so ago. Complete car that had been in dry storage for many years. Went back a couple years later and it was gone. He also had a 68 GT350 fastback among many other Mustangs.
