My wife and I love taking our 1997 Toyota Land Cruiser camping and off-roading. This is a picture from the White Rim Trail in Canyonlands National Park. We drove out west on a 5,296 mile road trip from Ohio in 2015.

I'll play too. New here and dont have an 'A' yet but looking forward to the day. I restored this car over a 5 year period, it was a disaster before I started. I did everything but the motor work.

I don't have the room for another car right now, but I've been riding this '47 for 30 years.

You can do like some gun collectors I know do. Their wife doesn't know one gun from another but she CAN count. Buy a couple crap bikes for a couple hundred bucks each (or less), then when a GOOD one comes available, you buy it and get rid of one of the junkers. If the wife checks, there is still the same number of bikes. . Certainly would be easier to do with guns but could work with bikes.

As well as our 2 Model A's, we have 2 "modern" cars. My 1953 Alvis 3 litre 6 and Dianes 1962 Mark 2 3.8 litre Jaguar.
Our really modern cars are a Jeep and a Porsce Boxster.
TheTudor and Roadster do the most miles as weekend cars.

BIGD, thanks, I do have a few more bikes but didn't want to bore the guys, I have a '39 BSA Gold star, '67 BSA Lightning, and a '52 Ariel, along with my '01 roadking that is a driver. Between my brother and myself we had about 30 at one time but reduced the herd a few years ago. I had a chance to get a (ducati) 750ss for about 30G a few years ago but passed it up. And yes, my wife tells me about every day to get rid of them.

Nice Vincent Bruce. One of the things I love about vincents is that it seems that a lot of them are still being ridden. Bruce, Have you ever been to the 'classic motorcycle day' in MD. I know when I used to go, there were many VA riders in attendance, and typically half a dozen guys riding in on their Vincents.

Along side my model a I have just finished Restoration of a 1959 Triumph TR3. Let my 1914 brass Model T go to make room for the Triumph. Boy that was hard but it went to a good home.
