I stopped collecting almost everything. My new fetish is <$20 chainsaws. ^ so far.

I have slot cars, watches, model cars (pricey Exoto brand, and CNC too), fans, tools, I love buying any yard tool for $3 or less (pruners, loppers, shovels, rakes, axes, cultivators, and my favorite, the spade fork), I used to have 9 lawnmowers, only one now, I have two Sheridan pellet guns, but I'm always shopping for more, auto art, any artifact I can find in the dirt.

Now if I could just break my moped parts buying addiction. I have parts I have totally forgotten about.

Lol. Lincoln Logs for adults. Very cool.

Re: What does everyone else collect besides mopeds?

I collect exotic tropical plants and have a collection id estimate at around $100k. Plant collecting is way more of an expensive hobby than mopeds ever were for me.

He kept a log.

Re: What does everyone else collect besides mopeds?

Telephones from 1930-1980. Several crank, Great Aunt Pearl's candlestick, lots of rotary dials, linemen test sets, early touch tones without the * and # buttons, pay phones, several booths, multi-line business phones, olive green phones, nothing with redial or memory, very few novelty models. Payphone Coin box doors

Hot Wheels. Quite a bunch from 1968 - 2010, lost interest and switched to phones, lost interest in phones and switched to mopeds.

Beatles records and compact discs, all the solo stuff, Apple Records artists, Badfinger, even a bunch of Yoko Ono

Roy Orbison compact discs

Tools. Omfg tools. I have a storage unit filled to the ceiling with tools and factory service manuals. And I have a closet full and a corner of the living room and a rolling tool box full in the living room. Hand tools, power tools, diagnostic tools, tools ive made or modified, tools to fix tools... Ever since I saw that damn Tim Allen comedian with his Men Are Pigs stand up act, ive collected tools, got some from my engineer dad, my metalworking grandfather, flea markets, garage sales, Craigslist, ebay. I used to collect cars and motorcycles but the DMV thing got to be a big problem. At least with the tools I get to fix other peoples stuff, like one guy had a tucker snow cat that I replaced a tread and hydraulic hoses on, I fixed a motorhomes self leveling system, a neighbor needs me to work on his 2015 supercharged ss camaro. The tools let me meet people and go places I normally couldn't.

Re: What does everyone else collect besides mopeds?

I have gone through many phases of collecting and moved on. I was into beer signs, tractors, snowmobiles, etc. I now try not to spend alot on junk but when i see something I like I will buy. I guess it's more of like hording but if it makes you happy then its ok.

Re: What does everyone else collect besides mopeds?

Hey Steven,thanks. I have some tow trucks I'll post pictures of later today.

Re: What does everyone else collect besides mopeds?

I posted these on another post...

I collect toy gas powered outboards and some of the inboards. The earliest are from the 1950s to present.

Most of the boats on the lower shelf are from the 50s and belong with the engines in the next picture.

If any one out there has any they wish to let go PM me please they will go to a very good home.

The room...

Engines of the 50s with inboards. Some are the rare twin cylinder engines. Others are water cooled.

P1010009.JPG

The Fuji Line starting with the 50s and ended in the 70s I think. I really like these models.
