Always nice to talk to like minded collectors. Does anyone in here collect anything? Toys, Hotwheels, Legos, pez, old tools, ex wives, cars, Rc cars?

Let’s see some collections or hotrods and motorcycles Here’s a pic of my Bike and wife 9991D102-5E02-4EEB-92AD-96B77DD7D3F8.jpeg

I really like the bike, and the "hoe" is beautiful, indeed.

Unfortunately for you, she would pass for one of my daughters that are about the same age..

Where I come from, a man doesn't refer to his woman that way.....period.....

My twin daughters are not living near me now.

If a significant other referred to them like that....that boy and I are going to have a serious "conversation."

Trust me, 'dem boys don't want to have the "conversation" with their "hoe's" Dad!

That said - - - when I rode a Harley I had the T-shirt that said on the back:

"If You Can Read This, The Bitch Fell Off...."

My Wife thought it was hilarious.... :giggle:

Not mine, but some toys I get to be around regularly. :cool:

Have collected a few things over the years. Insect collecting with my son when he was young was probably the most serious. Had about 1200 specimens representing 495 species, about 450 of which are local to our area. Amazing what you can find if you actually look. Couldn’t figure out how to attach the spreadsheet inventory with embedded photos.

Most things seem to be a collection of one. One pet. One wife. One deer head. The deer head was from when our son lived at home. He wanted a mount so I agreed if he ever shot something worth mounting I’d get it mounted. Not exactly Boone and Crockett worthy but an interesting mount and he wanted it done as a European mount so we did it ourselves.

Last couple of years seem to be collecting tractors and implements.

I still couldn't get the full inventory with photos uploaded for the real collection of more than one thing. Have 25 drawers like this. Not adding to it these days as my little boy is 25 and into other pursuits. 495 species. 2087 total examples. It was fun while we were doing it.

I have a few RC Cars. One of them is a brushless electric that given the right battery could touch 50 or so. Then 2, 2 stroke nitro ones, the smaller of these is good for about 65 mph and can run a couple of hours on a tank, the larger and older one is a 4wd monster truck from the late 90s/early 00s. I am planning on adding some more cars to this and hoping to expand the collection to some planes, quads, and helis if possible, but unfortunately house needs come first so the stable is probably as full as it will be for at least the next couple years. Ideal goal is to get a visor, transmitter, and camera and be able to drive/fly them FPV and maybe get a couple race quadcopters to crash.

Also "playing" golf, and being out on the lake/river are both good wastes of time too.
