    Lol! Okay, here you go.

    First up is my 93 LX convertible. I've owned it for almost 15 years and it is fairly well modified. The only thing has hasn't been modded is the basic sheet metal and mechanically, it only lacks a supercharger. Yet.




    Next is my wife's car. It is also a 93 LX, but is a hatchback. Her car is a low-mile survivor that is still pretty stock, other than springs, wheels, intake and exhaust.



    This was my Saleen, 1993 #16. Uber low miles and one of three in this color/equipment. It won MCA Concours Gold at two Grand National shows. I sold it last year when I decided that it was either sell it or mod it. I took the high road and sent it on to another collector. This was it's magazine cover shot for Mustang Times.



    Next up is my wife's Saleen, 1985 #115. This was a very rare car with t-tops and just over 50,000 miles. It was great fun to drive, but it never really "clicked" with her. She isn't used to carburetors and hated having to let it warm up. That, combined with a terror of somebody damaging it, made it no fun for her to drive. We sold that to buy her green car.



    Lastly, here is our old 1996 Cobra. This was the first Mustang I bought for her after we met. It was bad and black. I put a Kenne Bell supercharger on top and it had right at 400hp to the rear wheels. I really wish we'd held on to this one.




    Happy now BugDude?

    What do you collect, other than guns?

    Texaco paraphernalia. Specifically the die-cast airplanes.

There are a lot of interesting designs out there and if you include the custom engraving some of us have had you may need more than one warehouse.

    I don't have that many, maybe a shoe box full, but I can dream. I kicked the habit a number of years ago, but I still pick up a lighter here and there when I find one that catches my eye.

    Several years ago I lived in the little town of Anacortes, WA. They had an old-fashioned Ace Hardware store that had been owned by an elderly couple for a couple of decades. High up on the front wall, the man had an incredible collection of die-cast Texaco stuff. The store is long gone, but I still wonder what happened to his collection.

    Yep. You can't tell a car guy that you have cars and not show pics.

    Nice rides!!! Your 93 is very elegantly stylish.

    I am a car guy but I don't have anything fun right now. I am in the process of looking for a 53 Chevy 210.

    Right now I am collecting antiques for my house. It is a 122 year old East Lake Victorian. I would like to expand into antique guns at some point too.

    Coon Hounds?? Now you hit my heart. Our beloved Blue Tick Hound Sheba...passed a couple of weeks ago. Our Basset Hound is really sad (more than usual) because Sheba was like her Mama. Now she has to bond with my little lap Pom. I love hounds. Send a spare coon hound my way ....LOL...the Basset would really like that .

    You have good taste in dogs.

    I have a small collection of genealogy/family history books. My favorite is my copy of our family history published in 1897. This book was purchased (new) by my great grandfather. Inside of the book is the receipt of his purchase. If I remember right, it cost $2.50.
