So boredom I guess has me wondering...

What kind of cars do we knife collectors drive? 

Do any of us also collect cars?

What kind of car do we think fits us best? 

So for me....

I currently drive a 2008 Cadillac CTS.  And I love it, but it is time to start thinking of something new to get excited abbout.

I used to try to collect cars.  I was kinda sick shortly after getting the Caddy and got rid of my other cars. 

At the time I had a 2004 Acura TL.  Nice car. 

And a 1977 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme.  I should have kept it.

And a 1997 Nissan Maxima.

And a 1998 Caddillac El Dorado Touring Coupe.  I really wanted to keep this one.

The hardest part of having more than two cars is maintanence.  You have trouble even making sure to drive each of them. Early on I drove a different car nearly each day.  But with a couple of promotions at work I wound up driving a lot more and I always had paperwork to take to this office or that office depending on the day.  Dragging files from one car to the next was a chore.  So it went to a different car each week.  That even was a pain.  Kind of led to the decision to dump some of them.

And washing them.  My god.

Then I joined Club Sportiva.  Pay a fee to join and you can reserve and drive any of their cars.  And, man do they have cars for you!  Lamborghinis, Porsche, Jaguars, Ferrari, Noble, Bentley, Tesla....

What do you want?  And you can put your fee toward a "share" on an exotic.  Want to own a 1/10 share of a Audi R8?  And drive it 1/10th's of the days in a year?  You got it. 


So like I said I got sick.  Too sick to drive for awhile.  A couple of years.

Now I'm tring to get better.  So my next car.  The car that fits me.  The car that fits my antique switchblade collection.  Smooth.  Sleek  Fast.  Beautiful.  Sexy.

Aston Martin DB9 Coupe.  Morning Frost.

So what do you drive?   What do you want to drive??  What car fits your knife collection???

Here is my dream ride: 

LOL, that sure would make riding the farm fun!

2008 Jeep Patriot Sport 4X4

1981 Toyota Hilux 4X4 Longbed pickup

  I just picked up a really nice 1999 Toyota Camry with factory 5-speed stick-shift. I am 60 years old and have driven just about all types of vehicles made from the 1930s on up, and I think the 1990s Toyota Camry is one of the great automobiles as far as functionality, efficiency and build-quality goes.




≈2.5 year with no new posts.

We currently have five vehicles. But no car payments, so we must be alright?

2001 Saturn SC2 -  my daily driver.  Over 378K miles and running like a top.  40+ mpg if I try at all.

2001 Saturn SC2 - my wife's daily.  Bright yellow, so I printed a bunch of 'Tweety' vinyl decals for it when she was out of town one weekend.  She loved it!  :)

2004 Chevy 1500 Silverado pickup - bare bones; no power anything.  but I can haul all sorts of stuff in the full sized bed.

2004 Chevy Suburban - probably our nicest vehicle.

2004 Cadillac Deville DTS - Jade found, test drove, and bought it all on her own.  $2500.  AC 'worked' but didn't really move any air around.  10 minutes and a new fan motor, and I fixed it.  :D

So there is a brief overview of our little 'fleet' of cars.  LOL
