Car Collectors?

I posted this on the W140 board but thought I'd post here also.

Just out of curiousity, how many Benz owners out there have more than 1 car? Any serious collectors? I've had 2 cars for about 6 years now. I started with Buick's and gradually moved to the German autos. I have a 95 s500 & 88 BMW 735i.

What about you guys? How many cars do you have? What are they?

Just my little baby benz. Its the only car I've ever owned and it has been awesome[:)]

If it jams, force it. If it breaks, it needed replacing anyway.

RE: Car Collectors?

Looks like I'm the only one w/ one car[V]????. Too bad I have no space to put a second. (Although if I had any more room I would prob have a w124 coupe)

If it jams, force it. If it breaks, it needed replacing anyway.
