I am definitely a hoarder. I have over 20 vehicles. I recognize that it isn't exactly working out but have a hard time getting rid of anything because most of what i pick up is so uncommon or unknown or unloved that it would be 1 in a million ppl who wouldnt just scrap the cars the first time they encountered difficulties. I cringe at the thought of sending rare cars up **** creek without a paddle, so here i am.

Makes sense. My dad is still 55 and already complains a lot about pain in his legs (he broke them both in motorcycle crashes before I was born) when the weather is too cold.

My friends make fun of me

I must admit I feel a lot better about my fleet seeing how many other people have more!

1996 Corolla Wagon
1999 Sienna
2001 Tundra
2006 Sequoia
2013 Highlander (husband drives this one)

A vehicle for every occasion!

I currently only have two cars, my '98 Toyota Starlet and a 97 Subaru Forester that I need to get rid of.

I would love to have a couple of cars all the time but in Australia (or Victoria at least) registration costs a fortune. It is ~$700 AUD (US$540) for registration every year and it goes up about $30-$40 per year. This doesn't include insurance, of which I have the cheapest which just covers me if I hit other things ~$200 per year. So how much are Rego costs for you guys in the US and other countries?
