I keep maintenance on them all by having at least 2 running at one time. I also look for indicators of problems and schedule future "proactive" repairs. I replace parts before they fail.

I just removed my red trucks motor because I noticed the head gaskets starting to fail, and drove the truck into my garage and ripped the running motor out.

I also do the multiple (old) car thing but for me its more for the enjoyment of building them and novelty of driving them. With the Raider and all my Starions/Conquests I'm guaranteed a conversation at the gas station which is kinda cool. Maintaining and building the cars are a "release" for me too from work. The SQ's are under collector insurance (SUPER cheap) and the Raider costs nothing in insurance so keeping them is a no-brainer. Also, they all run on Megasquirt and get really good gas mileage.

Now, when I was running the engine shop, I didn't work on ANY of my cars for years. Cars were not an enjoyable when it was also my job.

Granted I have a 2011 F-150 FX-4 Ecoboost because I have to travel with work/hunting, but it's parked 95% of the time. Wait a minute...turbo cars, turbo Raider, turbo truck......maybe I have a problem <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" />

I'm very excited about the new Ford Eco boost selection. I hope they turn out to be good 15 year old cars. Maybe I'll jump ship in 15 years <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" />

You are right, my first gen Montero always started a conversation at gas stations. That was cool. I don't get that with the Galant. Everyone thinks it's an old crappy Sentra hehe.

Easy for some realy ..They just found someone who does have cars 'running' and then did as the old guy told him to do ..worked for me ...

Dont read fiction books...

And one thing you will see as guys with lots of running cars..Keep their cars for ever a lot of times ..Or most of their cars for ever...Some guys golf...I toy with my vehicles and drive to fast.. I come from a "car family" too..

And theres always something needing tires a battery or insurance..But get over it.. I still dont spend near what one new car would be each month..
