    We have two daily drivers, two summer cars (now in storage so the DDs have the garage back), two street bikes. I want to build another garage to stop this storage nonsense & keep DDs inside year round.

    If you can count em all, then you probably don't have too many!

    Six vehicles now (it was 7 until a month ago...)

    2010 Silverado (DD), '84 Chevy M1028, '69 Chevy C-30, '54 or '53 Hudson Jet, '33 Ford 5 window, '29 or '28 Ford Model A RPU...

    Probably too many for a 20 year old!

    I think this thread would be better if we only mention how many toys we have that are 'car hobby' related that you can drive or are currently working on.. or will be working on getting on the road..This does not include your wife's suv, your newer truck you drive to work, or the immobile old cars out back that are rotting in the woods. :)

    Too many, but still looking for another.
    All Fords.
    5 currently in use: 1927, 29, 30, 49, and 55.
    1 current project: 1932
    3 future projects: 1930, 32, 48

    1 non-HAMB friendly, but I bet is secretly desired by many on here: authentic smokey and the bandit edition trans am.

    Whoever says "you can only drive one", is wrong.

    4 hobby cars, 2 daily drivers, 1 project going at this time. Beginning to rethink this, I always said, "never too many cars, just too few garage spaces" I can only drive one at a time, keeping up with everything is getting to be more like work and the enjoyment is starting to fade some. I just commented on a thread about enjoyment of driving the cars, which for me, is BIG. John

    There's a '52 Dodge short bed picked-over beat-up shell sitting by the house, a 230 flathead 6 sitting on the back of a flatbed '51 Dodge dually waiting to get purring again, and a list of 'to-dos' in the laptop to make it happen: T-5 setup & Jeep Cherokee/Dakota rear axle modifications, Dodge Brilliant Blue with black running boards and Armor White grill bars & bumper (might go with the Spring Special paint breaks if I can swing it)...and don't forget the disc brakes up front :cool:

    I've got plans on fixing up several Dodge Pilot-House trucks, so I figgered I'd fix one up as a driver with all of the spare parts I've collected over the years. When I've been asked how many pieces of my yard art I really need, I say just one...the others are for practice :cool:

    Had 4 Chevy drivers and 1 project a couple years ago. Decided to do a little downsizing. Now have 2 drivers and 1 project of my own. At last count there are currently 3 other project cars two buddies and I own. Somehow this downsizing thing did not work so well.

  27. I've got four. the mrs only knows about two of them. Don't spill the beans! :) (other two at my brothers place out of town) He locks the garage whenever we visit. They're cheap old projects and I know she would just spew if she knew I bought them...
