Too many vehicles/projects syndrome

Ok here's a list of all my vehicles:

1. '89 GMC Jimmy 350 TBI
2. '72 Jeep CJ5 project not completed
3. '81 Plymouth Arrow {D-50} with Toyota straight axle conversion/lifted
4 '83 Olds Cutlass Supreme -with Chevy small block
5. '80 Kawasaki KZ 1000 street bike
6. '94 Toyota Corolla {wifes car}

This is getting frustrating. I only have three registered for street use including wifes car. Any more and insurance gets too high. Does anybody else on this board have the " Too many vehicles/projects syndrome" I hope I'm not the only one. I'm starting to go nuts.

Re: Too many vehicles/projects syndrome

If you need to unload that KZ1000 let us know! A bike to commute on is sounding better every day the cost of gas goes up. I miss my Hurricane 1000.

Re: Too many vehicles/projects syndrome

Lets see...fiberlass scrambler project needs assembly, 1965 40' Eagle motorcoach restoration/conversion, 92 Ford van needs engine, ford backhoe needs valvejob,carb and eventual engine rebuild, 1964 ford stepside needs paint/bodywork and modern engine, kids 79' cj-7 needs engine, and my jeep needs a dana 60 ft and possible paintjob.
I'm leaving out the grocery getters, the junker/donor carcasses that need to be stripped and relocated, and the motorcycle(s),rototiller,lawntractor,woodsplitter projects.
Building a new barn restoring the old one, re-roof the workshop and finishing the house.
...Hmmm, do you feel better now ?

Re: Too many vehicles/projects syndrome

Gee...Suddenly I don't feel so bad. All I have is my Mustang(motors been out for the last 2 years) and my jeep which still runs(until the engine swap begins this month). I was planning on putting paving stones over half of the yard this summer, but the jeep comes first. 2 projects....Do I have it easy or what?
