Default We know you love procars....what are your other hobbies?

I have enjoyed the procar hobby for about 25 years now. While I currently have no plans of owning one I do collect literature (a few legal file drawers full), photos (over 10,000 digital and 35 MM) and related items.
Collecting diecast is another terrible addiction and at this point over 3000 pieces occupy my collection. As a kid I was always fascinated with cars and trains. In the mid 80's I started some N Scale trains which led to railfanning.
Living in Florida at the time I was lucky enough to shoot some great pictures of railroad stuff that simply is gone. Waycross Georgia watching 30+ trains a day rolling through....watching Norfolk and Western steam engine #611 blasting through south Georgia and also in Harriman Tennessee.
I have a small collection of antique wall and mantle clocks dating from 1866 to the early 1920's. I love working on computers and technocrap. My current "fun" vehicles are a 1971 Dodge D100 and a 1979 F150 4x4. I will share some pictures of my other "crap" over the weekend.

What do you collect and enjoy other than procars?
Post picture if you can.....we luvs pix

Red face there is something other than procars?!

Shelley and I have collected World's Fair items, 'regular' old/antique cars, auto memorabilia of all kinds, odd and unusual musical instruments and mountain dulcimers. When we get the house next door set up as her music studio, part of it will be for my 'museum' of old car stuff.
Shelley teaches mountain dulcimer. She also writes music books for the mountain dulcimer. While I can pick out a few tunes I have come to the conclusion I am a better dulcimer builder than player. Living with a dulcimer ledgend will do that to you.

Studebakers and trains.

Cary, I was fortunate to ride excursion trains behind N&W 611 when it ran out of Alexandria, VA on the Southern Ry. when I was a teenager (as well as other SR locos and borrowed power). Even worked as the train EMT a couple times! Talk about combining business and pleasure!

I collect smiley faces, mainly from the 70's. I also collect vintage/retro/old video games and consoles (Atari, Colecovision, Nintendo, etc.).

My wife, Laura and I enjoy doing training and dog-sport with our three German Shepherd dogs,.... Zack, Chevy, and their son, Kodiak (Kodi).

As the picture shows, Chevy enjoys sleeping.

Default Other Hobbies

Well, not counting Pro-Car or Funeral things, I collect antique car parts, model cars, and other od and end antique things. such as, a Marvy barber pole, some old milk bottles, and remember the old color wheels for the old aluminum christmas trees? got one of those too. I enjoy collecting things that other people my age don't know anything about or have no idea what it is. One day these things will be forgottin if people like us don't collect them now. I am also a member of the Divco Club. And while I love antique cars, I also like drag racing, hot rods and street rods and other custom cars. I have ben in the custom mini truck hobby for about 8 or 9 years now. Heres a pic of my 86 Ford Ranger.

I'm not big into collecting things and I don't really have any collections other than a few model procars. I do enjoy spending as much time outside as possible during the warmer months and spending time at the island. I blog about island / cottage life here.

I forgot a few. I like taking pictures of nature, old buildings, and car stuff. I enjoy going to weird places, like Centralia, PA etc.

In the colder months, I help the husband with his chocolate production:


I also hang out a lot with this guy:
