    So i have effectively added another snowmobile to my collection...
    so now i have 1 truck, 3 cars, 3 snowmobiles, 1 four wheeler, and 1 pocket bike...

    i think the only thing i'm missing would be a street bike, which i will prob get back into this coming summer...

    so my list would be:

    1970-71 Ski-Doo Elan 250 with 300cc motor swap, electric start, and a 95 civic car seat
    1982-83 Artic Cat Jag 250, cleated belt, other wise stock
    1986 Yamaha Vmax 540 liquid cooled, rebuilt motor, studded track, carbide wear rods

    1998 Honda 300ex - exhaust and paddle tires

    Brand new pocket bike, 49cc - stock

    1991 Mazda B2600i, lifted 2 inches with 31's

    1986 Crx SI w/ D16A1 swap
    1990 Civic Hatch w/ D16z6
    1995 Integra w/ H22

    so what else is there to get?
    I guess my next step would be to get into water crafts, but i don't see myself going there...
    anyone think i have too many toys?

    after posting this i see that i have a serious problem, i can never leave anything alone...
    its always gotta be modded or somehow made better...
    i guess thats why this is my hobby...

    My toy list is dwindling too... I have:

    91 Civic hatch (This car just sits around now for me to look at. If , in the future, I buy a house I will try my hardest to get it in my living room)
    93 NX2000 (The new show / auto-x / daily)
    91 Subaru Loyale (The trail fun car (CT doesn't do trails like you might think) snow / camping / touring and all around fun car - so I consider it a toy (It's got lights on the roof)
    1982 Honda Shadow

    For the toys, I've given them up and my friend now stores "our" projects. 83 Porsche 944 (Buy this thing), 2 ninja 900s, Artic Cat snowmobile, 2 quads, pocket bikes all sorts of shit like that. We'll be building a go-kart at some point this year for competition. He's got the Boat, pop-up, yadda yadda.

    It's good when you share the toys, that way it's not always up to you to store / work on them. Costs are split. Just find someone else who you get along with and share the same opinions with.

    what are you doing with these?

    and the friend idea is a good one...
    my friend and i share/rent out garage
    we have a few things that we split the costs on, welder, snowmobile/atv trailer, pool table, 86 crx field car
    he also has a 03 400 ex, 02 polaris 550 sled, mid 70's yamaha enticer 250cc sled, 93 accord w/h22, 93 mustang gt convert 5.0, 95 tacoma, and 01 integra

    he was able to acquire a MINT SHOWROOM condition artic cat kitty kat 1980 or 1981 for his son...
    he had one just like it when he was a kid, but it wasn;t mint...

    its good to have a friend, and all our toys are comparable...
    toys aren't fun unless you have others to join in the adventures...

    this would also be the friend that spotted the barbie on the side of the road...

    All of my toys are gone.

    The civics, the quads, the 944 (I loved that car to). I never really got into bikes or I would have a ton of them, I barely can ride a dirtbike.

    Yeah, I forgot about some of the "toys" that are referred to:

    I have a collection of coats and jackets, a collection of shoes and a lot of nice suits. I collect interesting antiques, and eyeglasses. I have a 3.4ghz machine with 6 video outs, 2 gigs of ram and .5 terra of space. I dont' really consider them "toys" because I don't play with them. I only play with the motorized stuff :)

    And rifles. But again, collection and not toys.

    As far as the Ninja's, the one that's for sale is a 1996 with 6000 miles on it and new (If not incorrect) plastics. It's white and ready for anything you want. It's got a Muzzy, it was in a light accident but is now completely replaced. For us to sell it, we would need at least $2500 for it as it is, because those are the receipts from this past year alone.

    the other is a 95 900 that looks like the first. It's got a 1/4 trans and it's ballistic.
