    no, I have several beers and then start perusing the classifieds for another car :rolleyes:

    I have 3 now, but i think 4 will be the magic number, with one of them being a project; a comfy daily driver, a truck, a coupe, and i still need an open top car to round it out. I don't think i would be very content with one finished car that i just had to maintain and enjoy, i don't know what i would do without big over whelming projects to work on!

    I have to have at least two, one finished and one in progress. If I only have one finished, then I end up screwing with it until I realize I messed up. I have to have something to do. Something about idle hands are the devils workshop or something.

    Yep. Sold my '27 T Sedan in Nov for a good price. Only have the Shoebox left and I'm fine with that.

    And I haven't had a beer in way too long...I miss beer.
  6. One rod and one bike has always been enough for me. Sometimes just one bike. :oops:

    I have had one rode and another in the works a time or two but one of them was always available for purchase (either one LOL). My take on it is that I only got one butt and one seat is enough. ;)

    My problem is I end up building a car with to much money invested which eliminates most buyers and I'm to dam stubborn to give them away so I'll probably die with these 4 deuces and the 40. What the hell at 75 I'm starting another project???????????????????????

    Trying to get down to one car but not working very well. If it doesn't sell- will be forced to keep it. Beer has nothing to do with it.

    One is good for me especially now. Putting food on the table is more important

  13. Well, I use to drink a lot but don't indulge anymore, with this new normal we are living in with daily uncertainty , it might just be a omen that it's time to start drinking again!:D No, that ain't gonna happen.

    As for hot rods, I'm down to two and that's enough, I might have another project in the future, but if I don't I'm content. HRP

  14. I can live with only one hot rod as long as customs don’t count as hot rods. By the way, my custom has a 392 hemi in it.

    I'll just say not yet.I like the challenge of searching for parts and the thrill of the hunt till the project is finished.I must really like it because I seem to keep doing it.

  16. I've got two done and running and a third one in about 10k pieces. The project vehicle is my third "last project" so I've already fallen off the wagon.

    Oh, yeah, I like beer, too.

    The answer to the question: no.

    I'm at zero old cars right now. Just sold 2. I was planning to buy the "one" before this virus stuff. I am hoping it passes quickly so I can get back to it.

    And here I have been thinking I need to pare them down to about a dozen keepers! One? No way possible! Several "family" cars that will be handed down, cars I've had from when I was a teenager, etc.

    ps, somehow I've screwed that up as I don't have any debt.
  21. Oh hell.....why did you bring up bikes.....there's a couple of dozen of those stashed around - with those dang monkey bikes leading the collection at about an even dozen......

    This is the wrong place to ask that question. It's like asking a drunk if he would like a drink! LOL. Lippy

    Only one? No, I don't think I could do it. I currently have 3 at the house and help my oldest son with his project too, it never ends. I have one to drive, one to race and my parts hauler. The parts hauler is the only one that actually runs. Typical.

    My feeling is to build out the F1 take it on long road trips and spend the money on it if I need/want to . Just want a vintage truck to enjoy again . Traffic lights are boring at a red light . Nothing interesting to look at.

    That's it, too many irons in the fire, not enuff funds to spread 'round......
  27. I’m actually working on getting rid of a bunch of projects and focusing on two I can drive. It’s a struggle for me, the thrill of finding and buying stuff is big. I’m working on a good one this spring....

    I did sell a pickup and another off topic car is for sale to make room for the new one

    two couped up
    from pa.

    I have 3 coupes, all are Deluxe a 40 Hotrod flathead, a 39 Street rod sbf, and two projects, one is a 40 coupe with a v12 Lincoln and a 40 tudor which will be Ford powered also but not sure which motor yet. I work in the garage all winter long and cruise during the summer when the weather is nice. I kick back everyday with a couple beers and plan what to do the next day. NO such thing as to many cars!

    Had at least half a dozen collector cars and started selling them five years ago. Owned the Zipper and a '29 CCPU for 20 years and continue to upgrade, change and tweak both cars. Insurance and registration fees were mounting up and you can only drive one car at a time. At 79, I'm done with major builds and have a lot more interests than just hot rods. I drink single barrel bourbon.
