I'm in crisis mode. Several days into my sanity and nothing has sold. I have begun to justify keeping things.

Except the free e36 with the purchase of the hardtop that I'm now considering reducing the price on.

even the triumph. I mean, In two days I can get it running. It just needs a couple of turn signal stalls... I mean....

Help?

Pew! that was close.  Thankfully you are outside my area, so I will have room to park in my driveway tonight....

 

I need something to tow with, the 96 S10 Blazer is too short and towing is a continuous arm wrestling workout.

A friend covets my Blazer and has a 2007 E250 he wants to trade. I may go that route, because easy button (and the AC works!).

I'm surprised more people don't use vans. I never have, but it's always seemed like a good idea.

I forgot one. 
1983 Chris Craft 251 

Similar to the BMW...boat is free. $1200 for the trailer. 
The boat is extremely sound. Zero structural issues. These things were built in an over engineered fashion. 
sleeps 4 with head and micro galley. 
I started blowing smoke and pulled the engine to do the rings. Of course that led to buying a built block from Sonic Speed ( friend that builds race boats). Some parts got lost in the shuffle and it got sidelined. 
so, you get:

one boat. one trailer. 
two engines. One is a 305 mercruiser, the other is a 350 mercruiser.

Newly upholstered seats not installed. 
 

we got this as a cabin on the water.  Sort of like my bus...heavy, comfortable, slow  (well, faster than the bus)  Single screw direct shaft.  Good boat for the Chesapeake bay where I am and we also trailered it to the gulf a couple of times. The bottom is clean.  This is not gross like many boats we looked at.  It was not a party barge.  My wife's criteria was that  must have no vibe of being hurled in.

I don't know boats like I know cars, but ask away.

this one I would love to see someone take as it would bring enjoyment and will certainly return to earth in my possession.

If I was close I'd buy the suburban just because 470k miles is cool.

 

Also.....guitars you say???

If I can get the financial management on board for the bike, I'm really interested.

Maybe guitars in a separate moment. But probably coming. I need to see what my kids are interested in first plus I have to really contemplate.

Wife is still adamant we (meaning me) have to wait a bit longer... And since her retirement money is supporting my income being less than I spend, I cant disagree to hard! Still trying though.
