I've got to say I gave up counting at 30, after 3 years driving , another 34 years on I've no idea. I struggle to remember those I've modified for myself or others I've been involved in...but that could just be a SAGA thing :incheek:

I gave up counting after 50 odd. Don't be too sure that the '57 will stop the compulsion. I had one about 13 years ago...but it was sold on and I'm still going strong. My problem is having too many cars at one time - currently 7.

Lill Miss Petrolhead - jeez! with the greatest respect, you have have had your share of 'shitters' too - as I guess most of us have - we just forget them or are too embarrassed to mention them - LOL, my first venture off two wheels back in 1967 was a Berkeley T60 - and that 'car' was the most unreliable 'shitter' I had ever had, and it was only 7 years old, the stories I could you about that! Second most unreliable car I owned when it only two years old was a Firenza 2300 SL Sport.

21: 1967 Ford Anglia (still got it)
28: 1954 Ford Pop

So yes, the 'newest' car I've ever owned is an Anglia :D

I only have 3 at the moment, 1 finished, 2 not.

A bloke wanted to buy my truck at the NEC, to add to his collection. When I asked how manyu was his collection, he has 57 at the moment. Big garage methinks.
