Was down to one 6 months ago , now I'm up to 5. Is that a magic number...Ha ha
Saw the '35 in person at Dave's, WOW!!! Congrats.
This Is Enough To Give A Retired Guy A Hobby...
That tudor is so much better than the Vette. HRP
I'm down to 3 . HRP
Currently I've got 2- ,1941 Chevy and '51 Ford. I've also got a '66 Mustang coupe I rebuilt a couple of years ago.
Until I complete the one I've been working on for more than four decades, I claim slightly less than one.
2 hot rods, Model A coupe and '32 roadster, one old non hot rod/non custom '54 Ford Ranch Wagon.
I was down to 6, all of which are licensed and insured; then I got interested in upgrading the engine in one of the six. In my southern approach to finding the right engine at a good deal, I now have TWO 1965 Buick Rivieras, too.
Both have two 4s but only the Gran Sport had the LX coded 425. GS parts car will donate the engine and I drove the other one home today after getting the brakes repaired and the car fully serviced after a long rest.
The GS parts car, less the engine, and the licensed and insured other Riviera will be for sale shortly after we're certain the 425 engine works out.
My target herd was three keepers and probably one more... then I ran across a couple deals on 32s! You are supposed to buy steel 32s with special histories aren't you? Now the Riveras! Believe it or not, I had decided not to buy the Rivieras when my wife weighed in and encouraged me to buy them. See, I just get no help at home.
Dang! That Rivie is big!
Driver 35 Chebby tub and a work in progress 46 Olds sedanette. I had a driver and 2 x builders on the go years ago, never again. I got one almost finished and sold it so I could finish the other so I could at least drive something.
Two and a bit......
Hot rods, not customs.
I'm currently at 4 if you count bikes. Current project is a 65 Bonneville, next in line is my 37 Hudson (been a dream car for most of my life and finally got it a few weeks ago), 42 GMC dually that's was my great grandfather's farm truck, shovelhead Harley (that's actually for sale to help fund the first 2). As for daily driverable I have a pretty sweet ranger
one and one 3/4
........Show picture of 3/4.
Any more than two drivers, and I feel that something is sitting too much, and that bothers me...My current two are the Willys pickup and the Econoline.....The 56 ford is on c-list..Vintage camper projects don’t count.
I have five two projects and three drivers.

^^^^^ its a 1950 ford with a flathead, the reason I say 3/4 is because when I drive it there's a 25% chance it's going to break down and I never drive it over my free towing mileage of 15 miles with Grundy insurance.
One day hope to make it a good 1 car
One lonely 34 ford coupe...that's enough for me
5 which is about 4 too many,hehe
Definitely in the "problem" category.
I only have room for one. Fun to drive and keeps me busy with upgrades.
I am with MNJeff...my two... g-willys
Only one at the moment. ('47 Ford Coupe)
3, 55 chevy, 32 roadster and 52 suburban.
Down to 1 HAMB car, my 51 Mercury and that will go back on market for sale in spring. I'm planning on finishing out car deal with my OT cars. The hobby has and still will serve me well, still will attend cruises, shows, same friends, etc. BUT never say never as life is a constant ever changing experience and it's not over till your ash's are cold or the grass is growing over you.
2 - One to work on and one to drive.
Two and some OT stuff. 62 Biscayne and a 27 T Coupe.
Currently I have 3.
A 61 Mercury that I purchased for my son when he was 3-4 years old, now 27 & not into cars. He doesn't have the money or the time! My newest project, 1950 Olds Coupe. And my Runt...Sectioned 31 A Pick-up on original 32 Rails.
I'm up to three, but still have room for an additional stray should one present itself.
Too bloody many for the time I have available lol
