Some of us have had that one car that just slipped by us. Something we had been either longing for or searching for, only to have it taken from us when we were ready to buy. For me it was a 2017 Miata Grand Touring. It sold just a couple of hours before I was supposed to go in and buy it, and I’ve lived with the regret since. We asked readers which cars got away from them. These were their answers.

Welcome back to Answers of the Day, our daily Jalopnik feature where we take the best 10 responses from the previous Question of the Day and shine it up to show off. It’s by you and for you, Jalopnik readers. Enjoy!
