Neat cars and nice variety!

A lot of Model A owners look like they keep some more 'modern' iron in the fleet for when you need to burn off some aggression

My family has said 'What do we do with your stuff after you are dead?' I say 'I don't care. Set it out in the yard, sell it at auction, get what you can I just don't care anymore! I'm having fun with it while I'm still around you can't put a price on that.'

The alternative is sell all your stuff, park the money in a CD or whatever, and wait to die.

Naw,,,, that makes no sense

A lot of variety indeed!! My three favorite collector cars are all out of reach financially, so my little collection represents real world alternatives.

1914 Stutz Bearcat - Ford T speedster - close as I can get to my favorite all time car!
1929 Duesenberg Dissapearing top Murphy bodied roadster - 1930 A roadster, top stored away...
1959 MB 300 SL - 1989 MB 560 SL -Signal Red and Palomino, just like the 300 SL would be!

Didn't consciously try for this but I realized one day how these cars lined up...

I always think it is interesting to see what people have in their collections, so many great cars out there! Nice to see the contrasts and compliments in these various garages. This is a cool thread.

I had a 47 V8 deluxe coupe that we almost never used. It was a semi custom flat head. I'm really a model A guy. I have 6 As. 5 on the road, and 1 being rebuilt.

People are proud of their rides and deservedly so. I keep my garage door shut, nobody needs to know.

Tom I spent a day at Harrahs admiring his 1600 cars ,I think there was 7 Duesenbergs When I could have bought this Duesy for $1500 I just got married and my Honey wanted a stove and a bed ect: Well she got her way .But I can say the car might have been wore out by now but I still got my wife . I like the ones that I have . Another one I wanted was T Ford that was in the Ford garage in Sratford Ont When my cousin bought the garage .It had a door on the right side in the center .The driver had to crawl out across the car to get out .My Uncle drove it for some years after the war as it was hard to get tires for cars ,
