OPPO QOTD: What Could Have Been Edition

What car did you look at/test drive/almost purchase but decided against?

Illustration for article titled OPPO QOTD: What Could Have Been Edition

For me, it was a 2002 Jaguar XJ8 in Frost Blue Metallic with a cream interior, walnut trim. Absolutely gorgeous, a little wear on the seats and the wood was cracked but the varnish was still glossy. Best part? It was only $2000. The reasons I decided against? Well, its an old Jag, had 170k miles, and unsurprisingly, the CEL was on. I still think about it, the XJ8 is such a beautiful car and makes a great sound.
