Question Fess up: are you an automotive hoarder? (Eco-cars or not)


My name is Darin, and I'm a car hoarder.

(The first step is admitting you have a problem, yes?)

And then there are the enablers:

I found a nice Metro to buy today. I'm perpetually hunting for a decent twin of my '98 Firefly. I dunno if the Metro is still available, but I do know I'll buy it if I can. And that would be car number seven, currently. Yikes.

- 98 Firefly
- 04 Prius (sold! Awaiting payment)
- 04 Echo (next winter beater)
- 92 Firefly convertible (future restoration project)
- ForkenSwift Metro EV rusted out shell/parts car
- 91 Suzuki Swift parts car
- possible nice new Metro??

But if I get the Metro, I WILL be culling the herd: Prius tomorrow, if the plan holds; At least one of the parts cars will go this year; Echo will be gone next summer if I get the Metro.

So, how big is your herd?

Oh, and list 'em.
