Tasty list, Fumes!

Looking forward to the CRXFi.

Also, I'm a boat hoarder. Currently 7. Mostly sailboats of various sizes, 3 used regularly.

EDIT: oh, and a bicycle hoarder. Five in usable condition, 3 used regularly.

I'm a non-practicing minimalist!

I have three usable bicycles and three unusable mopeds.

I just sold a utility trailer and plan to sell my car-hauling trailer next.

Non-practicing ... that's funny!

You have a car hauler! Talk about an enabler.

I lose this one. Our family shares three cars (one not running), but I only have one in my name.

I'm cheap.

An uncle of mine is somewhat a car-hoarder, but now he has only 4 cars even though 2 of them are not running. At least one of the cars is just accumulating dust for more than 6 years. I try to avoid this uncle's example, no wonder I like utility vehicles such as vans (including minivans) so much.
