Question Of The Day: What Was (Almost) Your Biggest Mistake?S

I was speaking with Spinelli yesterday and we each revealed a secret to the other. No, not that we both rate 3 on the Kinsey scale. But that we each almost purchased a big SUV. Spinelli copped to the fact that he was nearly seduced by the admittedly tantalizing combination of American power and Italian leather and Yugoslavian good looks that was/is the LaForza Prima. Truthfully, that's only partially shameful. I on the other hand, after owning three really great Jeeps (well, two great Cherokees and a just OK Grand Cherokee) nearly choked the lay up and purchased a bright yellow Nissan Xterra. The year was 2000 and it seemed like such a good idea. Thankfully I test drove one, digested the 72-second 0-60 time and bought a Sentra. Your closest call?
