    I'd have to stop and think on the first question and still am not sure.

    More than you can physically or financially finish in a lifetime is too many.

    I have three, all hotrods, and all drivers. My Burb is my daily driver; the gasser and the muscle car are my occasional drivers. The motorcycle rarely gets driven anymore, so it's going away this spring.

    I only have 3. But too many is when someone has the hots for a particular make and model car and has to be told he already has a restored 1 in the barn.

    And it's just my wife and I!

  20. I have 5 vehicles but none are HAMB friendly. 2 or 3 could even be considered appliances since they're so boring. The other two are things that I cobbled together from same make donors to make functioning vehicles that never left the factory in their current configurations.

    93 cobra mustang, not running. 88 crown vic, running but not for long. bout to part out. 82 E-150, runs, sometimes my daily driver when the fairlane is down. 78 fairmont, not running. 66 f100 runs. 63 fairlane runs, it's my daily driver. two 66 bsa's not running. late 60's shovelhead chopper, not running. 26 T sedan, not running. i think in order for me to feel better about my vehicle hoarding i should start buying more that run so that my running/not running ratio is more acceptable.
     
  24. I have 3 HAMB friendly vehicles out of the 6 cars we own:

    - 32 Ford Roadster (avatar): flattie/5-speed
    - 40 Ford Std Coupe: flattie/5-speed
    - 40 Ford p-up: 4.3V6/5-speed

    It is called a automobile portfolio. It's like owning T-bills or CD's or stocks - more fun though because you can go out and touch your portfolio. It is harder to store the automobile portfolio however - not like stamps or coins that you can store in a drawer.

    My list
    '40 Hudson Coupe
    '41 Ford PU
    '50 Ford Buis. coupe
    '54 Ford F-100
    '59 Ford F-100
    OT '77 ford F-250 4x4 factory highboy
    OT '78 Ford F-150 (shop truck)
    OT '95 Accord
    How many is too many depends on what your resources and abilities are. I have too many to do justice to for sure with my abilities and income. All but the '59 F-100 and '50 Ford coupe are drivers but none are REAL nice.
