The Tudor still looks like a nice car. Hope you drive it some. They actually hold up better with a little exercise.

Do you have a common accessory or "brand" that you have on each car that identifies it as being part of your "fleet" ?

What a nice (fleet) sight to see in your yard.
My fleet is smaller, but I still have trouble deciding...should I drive the '57 Chevy or the '31 Model A.
How do you decide which to drive on a given day?

The one whose battery is not dead and has fuel.

My friends with multiple cars invariably only have one good battery that they move to the car they want to drive at the moment.

Not a "brand" per say. Around this area, our family is known for owning and driving Model As. All my cars have a Maltese Cross on the rear, 34 years firefighting, now retired.
