I suspect that if we are honest about our hobbies/passions itís pretty hard for any of us to rationalize it. The reality is that we make money to spend as we wish -the joys of living in a free society. I love old cars and trucks, I enjoy racing in cars, and I spend way too much on photography. None of these are ďjustifiableĒ and I would have a lot more money in the bank if I hadnít done them, but I donít mind being accused of what the OP titled this thread.

I like this idea - Iíve added it to the list of things to find for my garage, at this point I just have some old fenders - not as cool on the wall!

Yes, everybody has different likes and interests. There is a friend I have that doesn't understand why I buy and use old trucks.....

The guy and his wife said they had some good quality time together and enjoyed the trip. I'm sure they went out to eat before they left or on the way home. And sometimes it's not the destination, it's the trip.

And as I said before, he is not chopping it up and or putting it on a rat rod. It will be preserved and can be used again later.

I've seen and met a lot of odd people because of this hobby, heck I'm sure some of the people I've met think I'm odd. I have stories that I can write a book about.

I like to travel for parts. I went to MN a few of times, a 400+ trip, just to pick up a truck and a car and a set of big truck rims. I drove to PA to pick up my panel truck. I try to make family trips out of all the long hauls and usually come away with a good story to tell.

I've also had a few odd ducks travel to me to get parts. One guy bought a '48-50 F-1 box from me off of eBay and then tried to resale it before picking it up and bad mouthing me in his item description while using the same pictures and wording I used in my ad. Another time I sold a set of '48-50 F-2 front fenders to a guy in Ohio. He was going to drive all the way up to my house in SE WI to pick them up but just by chance I was going to IN to help a friend pick up a car so we arranged to meet at the location of the car in IN to save him time and gas. I told the guy I'd meet him there around 2:00, at 12:00 the guy calls me and tells me he's waiting for me at the meet spot in IN. When I got there at 2:00 he ticked off because he's been waiting for two hours. OK, fine, where's you truck? No truck, he has his girlfriend's fairly new Ford Taurus. He lowers the back seats and jams the fenders through the trunk opening scratching the paint on the rear quarter panels. His dad was also along with the girlfriend, climbs into the back seat between the two rusty, jagged edged fenders and off they go. I hope the old guy in the back didn't get cut in two if they got in an accident.

Not only in the car hobby. I'm selling an old, very heavy wood burning stove I had in one of our building on the farm. It's not all beat up but it's been in the building for a long time and it's dirty and looks like a item that been in a old farm building for a long time. I've placed ads with good quality pictures and a very good description. I've had interested parties who want to come for it with sub compact cars. This thing weighs at least 200 pounds and is rather large.

One might think it odd to spend money on a door to hang on a wall plus the expense it took to travel and get it but I think it odd for some to gather so much wealth and hoard it only to die a rich man..

Our preacher today reminded us that you can't take it with you. Also, if you become famous, you'll soon be forgotten.....
