They all do not fit in the garage, but I have a 1950 Chevy 3/4 pickup, 1972 VW Bug, 1979 Corvette, and a 2002 3/4 Chevy with the Duramax.

As of right now:

'04 Jeep Liberty, lifted 2.5", mine
'09 Mazda3 sedan, manual, mine
'12 Nissan Murano, wife's

Possibly picking up an '11 Jetta Sportwagen, manual, mine

I'm a motor nut, and the wife hate's it. There's always a car, truck, bike, something with a motor I want and it drives her nuts. But, I'm never satisfied with the one's I have. I might need rehab for it, but I don't see it as a problem.

In the main garage alongside the Sportster is a 2015 Indian Roadmaster, a 1994 Ford Ranger and a 2018 Honda CR-V. In the small garage is a 2015 Jeep Wrangler and all my tools.

I really wish they (Ford, GM) would bring the Ute's here to the States. I've had an '82 and '87 El Camino before and miss them.

2016 Chev Silverado.Got this new, but now that I'm retired I think I'll get out of the payments and find me a cheaper ride. Good truck tho, averaged 18-20 mpg back and forth to work! My '13 Silverado only averaged 13 mpg back and forth to work. Never had a garage.

Beautiful truck Toe... USA style...
in my Country, with our ancient or mid age cities and roads, we are not accustomed to see such strong cars... since some years are spread the fashion of SUVs... (only few very big though) but no big pickups...
