Selling the Spitfire
Perhaps the worst thing about selling a project car may be one of those classic Seven Deadly Sins, Pride. It hurts to admit, "No, I can't get this car running in time. Really, I am in over my head." Pride can definitely live up to its position on that list, chaining you to keep pressing on just because you're too pigheaded to admit that it was a bad idea.
At least I won't have the frustration of getting one thing done only to find there's more. I won't have to wonder where I will keep it in a few months. And I won't have to worry about spending any more money on what other problems I may not have discovered.
Still, I can't help but feel a pang of regret when I took out an ad for it.
