Not a car hoarder in the usual way.
I used to have an '85 Honda Civic that just wouldn't die. Drove it to the north of Finland. Did powerslides on the beach. Raced it, had a couple of accidents, still it held up until rust ate its structural parts - at 19 years of age.
My friends had scores of cars over the years that I owned that little Civic.
I used to joke that my first, second, third, etc. car were all the same: that Civic.
Does keeping a car alive against the odds count as hoarding?

Meanwhile I went through 6 motorbikes, owning 3 at a time. Being single.
Bikes are gone now, saw too many bad things happen, happy I'm still alive - and a father of 2, sure does change your world view.
2011 Honda Insight + HID, LEDs, tiny PV panel, extra brake pad return springs, neutral wheel alignment, 44/42 PSI (air), PHEV light (inop), tightened wheel nut.
lifetime FE over 0.17 Gmeter or 0.1 Mmile.

For confirmation go to people just like you.
For education go to people unlike yourself.
