Funny how things go but cars are much less of the obsession they used to be. My car building days are over and I haven't been to a show in 2 years. However I do have other interests and these have kind of taken over my time and money spent on cars.
I love my bikes, I had a bike license first and the cars followed. Just finishing a little 76 Honda CD175 and planning to buy/build an older Sportster Flat Tracker . Pinstriping, messing with airbrushes and tapes is also something I really enjoy. I'm not very good and don't have much gear right now but either way i just enjoy making a mess. Actually giving up on most of the car shows this year so I can attend more arty type events, go on a 2 day course and afford to put up a new small studio/workshop to hide in.

All good fun :smoke:

I paint (oils) a fair bit more than I play with my car now, I've sung on and off with a couple of bands, read religiously every day. My dad keeps canaries and finches though, I used to feed his zebra finches every morning when I was a kid :)

I've always thought that being obsessive about one thing is not healthy, so I listen to music (new stuff as well because if you can sort through all the crap there are still some good bands/singers around) Also tried to play the guitar on and off over the years - I know all the notes and chords to loads of songs, getting 'em in the right order is a real bugger though . . . Then there's the reading - presently working through various David Baldachi books. Collect model cars as well. And of course Wife, daughter and grandchildren take up a lot of time too.

I've spent far too much time and money on my hobby of collecting model vehicles, especially vintage British die-cast toys. I also enjoy playing the guitar, rambling in the countryside and trying (rarely successfully) to take 'arty' photos.
