    I have owned way too many, over 100, gained on a few, lost on most, but have enjoyed each and every one of them. I own the two now that I have always wanted. Yet I would love a nice A roadster. I am not done .
     
  4. I have never owned that many over the years, but starting in 1960 I have owned 6 all steel Willys coupes, and still have the '39 (along with the '36 sedan) pictured in my avitar. They have all found happy owners, and all still exist!

    Pretty difficult to count, I parted out / traded a lot of cars.
    Should I count the 75 delta 88 that I bought in the morning, poured gear lube in the burnt trans to get it driving, ran it thru 3 fields and bounced it off some guardrails, cut the 455 drive train out of it around noon and my buddy had it crushed by 4pm. The cops were asking body shops for a month about a wrecked dark green car that damaged bridge guardrails.
    the axles and housing ends went into a 9in rear that I still use, I guess the car lives on.

    Never ever listed them before, thought this would be a good time to count them. Always thought I had about forty, guess I was a little low. Sure that I have missed some, sorry about the OT ones. Sold the 55 Ford when I was a kid.... learned my lesson.... still have the rest. And a few more that I probably missed and that my son and nephew have on the ranch.

    Lost count. Started buying them when I was 12 and now at 52 I can’t remember every one of them.

    Highlights:
    1968 Shelby GT500KR I dug out of a guys backyard
    1969 GT500 Convertible
    Six 1970 Mach 1’s with 428Cj power
    1970 Cutlass SX Convertible 455
    Half dozen Model As
    Countless 1965-66 Mustangs
    Several late model Cobra and Shelby Mustangs
    1935-36 Cabriolets
    Several F100s of various generations
    1957 Caballero
    1958 Estate Wagon

    But I wouldn’t trade any of those for my current 1928 AV8 Pickup. I love this little truck!!
