Careful, Bill! I bet California has a law against those long hatpins!

If they give you pleasure, keep the gang of them. I whimper when I think of the cars gone. My mental attitude and therefore spirit jumps up many notches as I enter my garage. For me, the pursuit of happiness starts in my garage.

No one in my family seems to have any interest in any old cars older than the Muscle cars and Ferraris. Grand kids ride with me sometimes and are thrilled to get home to their internet toys. I still will keep at least one for that final ride.

My advice is figure out which one has the softest spot and sell the other two.
If you find two of those things, let me know I'll buy one LOL.

When attending Car Shows, remember that Guys with MUSCLE CARS/HOT RODS/EXOTICS think theirs' are the GREATEST! Respect that & talk to them about their Jewels!
I like to find a Guy sittng alone, with a NOT too impressive car, and chat with him. Meet some GREAT people, this way. And ask, "What part was the HARDEST to find"?

Don't sell them if you don't need the money. Store them, and after you're gone (hopefully you stay many more years) other people will find them and name them "barn finds". They will be worth more...

Pursuing happiness in the garage leads to less disappointment - and headaches for her!!
