You guys all have me beat!
I have my '15 Silverado I driver for work / daily. And my '82 GMC (Daisy) I'm rebuilding on this site. That's it for on road vehicles. I do have a boat and camper for toys as well, but I'm definitely lacking in my on road vehicles / yard art when compared to you fellas!

I just don't have the space for what I have even, so definitely can't get more at my current location / situation.

Yea I know I have a lack of squares.. They just don’t exist here in Indiana. I just happened to stumble on mine. Yea I know too many GMT-400’s, but they are still fairly cheap here. A sqaure suburban is about 8k lol. Well the one I found.

I'm actually looking to expand my fleet a little. I've been looking off and on for a Model A Ford for the last few months. I want one in original condition if possible. No street rod types, etc.

Just like anything else, the ones that are in decent original condition disappear before you can even get there to look at them. Or, the seller wants a mint for something with a tree growing through it. I can't seem to find anything in between. But, I guess that the search is half the fun.

They are still around! They are just few and far between, compared to how it was. I actually bought my most recent Burb a little northeast of Indy.

Well that’s cool, more populated area too. I’m down by Evansville.. literally stuck between Kentucky and Illinois. So he’ll even when I got this one it was a good hour drive to go get it.

The tree growing through the frame is just an anti-theft device, and the foliage keeps the hail off during spring storms.

This half of what I currently own.
Some of the missing are my 2 Duramax PU, 6.5 Diesel Suburban, Tahoe, Jimmy, 4 tractors, and many miscellaneous trailers.

@Bextreme04,
You tell your wife that your truck count is tied to the number of pairs of shoes she has! She needs to equal up!
@oldtiredafguy
Man! All lined up. Let's see, at about $8 thousand apiece that would be... Ha, ha, that's a life time of customizing you'd never run out of stuff to do.
@bucket,
I swear. If I had that much land I'd have a megashop! I'd have those lifts where you can stack cars one on top of each other! Is that a Impala station wagon over by the building on the right? I'd put a LS big block in that sucka and blow everybodies doors off. They'd be sayin', "Oh look here comes granny goin' to the market..." Then all they'd see is a cloud of white smoke and loud thunder!!

@Dooley,
Well, I'm an ol' Army guy. I've always wanted one of those " recon " APC. Not a full size one but for everyone else who doesn't know, a Recon APC is about half the size of a full APC and only holds about three guys. When I was in my last days in the Army we were out one day and here comes two of these little APC's. I found out what they were and I've wanted one ever since. They would be a blast to run around in.

Are those "Duce and a half's" multi-fuel or gassers? I had a chance to drive a duce and a half for a while. When I was in the Panama Canal Zone with Eight Special Forces Group at Ft. Gulick we'd make jumps from time to time and we'd take turns driving out to the LZ to pick the guys up and all the chutes. I like what you got man! I had a GSA number? is that what they're called? It's been so long. Where I could go bid on some of that stuff when the government has their auctions. They've got some cool stuff. Are you a surpluser? Find me a Waco!

@Dooley,
Not a Waco, a Bronco, OV-10 Twin Garret engined recon FAC aircraft they used when I was in Vietnam. I love those birds.

My wife has me on a 6 vehicle limit... it seems reasonable to me, so I'm usually sticking to that with various projects.
My wife and I have 4 vehicle limit, excluding the daily. A bit low for my taste but definitely better for my bank account.

I really need more cars, and maybe a boom truck to get this damn cat out of my tree.
