    He is friggin insane.

    He has:

    1937 Chevy Sedan (this one breaks my heart; perfectly restored body and strait 6, but it's been in the garage for 20 years...)
    1947 Dodge Limosine (currently in restoration)
    1948 Dodge Sedan (100% mechanically and electrically restored, needs body work next)
    19?? Dodge Pickup (pre-1950 I know; he's bringing that one home this week; Tow-barring it 300 miles with his '92 caddy)
    1984 Cadillac Limosine (some very rare factory version, too)
    1992 Caddy Sedan DeVille
    1993 Caddy Sedan DeVille (mostly my mom's)
    1987 Buick LeSabre


    He is nuts, but it's awesome. My wife and my mom say I'm the only other human in the word that thinks it's great!
    We were not a well-off family at all, were usually borderline broke, and I know he still doesn't make a lot of money. But he loves his hobbies, and the kids are out now, the house's are paid off... He now has no place to park this Dodge truck he's bringing home. He's already got 3 cars at my house; 2 cars in the garage, and one in my parking spot in the back (I park my beater and the K5 on the street and my wife's in the other spot in back now).

    This is why I collect stuff when I get into it...

    I have 4 trucks of my own and I'm only 19. Altogether my family has 7 4wds and 3 other vehicles. We are by no means rich either; we barely get by.

    My dad has two minivans. What a shame, he's had all these killer musclecars and now he has two minivans. He said he can't wait till my little bros are in college so he can finally have the time to buy another one.

    One majorly bad thing is that I sold the '84 Caddy on Ebay in JULY!!! The guy sent me the $500 down a couple weeks after the auction, and has sent me sporadic occasional emails. I just told him today the car's going back on the block if he doesn't come get it, 4 months is a little ridiculous! He says he'll be here for it 12/7. If not, anyone want to buy a 1984 Caddy Fleetwood 6-seat Limo?

    You know...I didnt realize it was this many until I just typed it out. Those are the ones that I plan on keeping. (not all of them run right now)

    Others that I have right now (currently this second) and are For sale are:

    1980 GMC 1/2 ton 2wd
    1978 Chevy 3/4 ton 4x4
    1976 Suburban 1/2 ton 4x4

    And then there are the parts trucks/vehicles...an accumulation of 5 years...so add another 20-30 or so.
