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.
