Default How many vehicles do you own??

I was prompted to ask this after deciding to get rid of the vehicles we hardly use. Rego alone is costing a fortune. 5 vehicles and 2 trailers between two of us is overkill. Two would be lucky if they were driven once every 2 months.
So, How many registered vehicles do you own.

registered i have 5 cars and a bike, 3 registered trailers, a campervan plus a company car, on top of these i have a motorhome ( bus under construction) a tractor and 15 other cars most of which are either being stripped to repair the ones being rebuilt or waiting for me to get time to take them to the scrappy. at the end of the day i will have 15 vehicles and 4 trailers able to be registered or are registered. i now i have way too many but need to have something to drive me insane. 9 p.s. i allso live on a 20 acre block so have plenty of space.

On top of the above i also have a daihatsu f20 i am repairing for the scouts and 2 delica's i am storing for people on the delica site who are currently overseas, and above all i have a very understanding wife :-)

and as a contrast to the above.. I have just one vehicle!

We've always had two cars, but thought we'd try and downsize our living costs a bit. We moved close to town recently and took a chance to sell the 2nd car. I ride my pushbike to work or catch the bus if the weather is crook. My kids don't play Saturday sport yet...

We chose to sell my wife's 1yo Ford Fiesta as it was worth more and an easier sale. It was a tough decision, as she was very attached to it and it was a great little car. It's a risk keeping a 10 yo Pajero with 270,000km as our primary car, but it's the most versatile.

When we get back on our feet we'll most likely get a second car again. I'd like something like an AU2 or AU3 Falcon. Dirt cheap and run forever. It's tough making do with one car after you've had the convenience of two for so long.

I have one and the wife has one. I find rego and insurance bad enough for two vehicles.

I have three cars
  • daily driver is a 1980s vintage Japanese wagon. Not particularly fuel efficient, but I can still do most of the diagnostics myself, and most of the repairs if I'm not too lazy.
  • weekend car no.1 is small & fast, for enjoying the roads in the Adelaide Hills - but it's too bloody expensive more me to use as a dd
  • weekend car no.2 is small & slow, for enjoying the hills (and the plains) farther from home

Of course, either weekend car can be called into duty when the dd fails to proceed. If I was smart, I'd rationalise my collection a little. But I have a genetic defect that means I struggle to dispose of anything, so selling a car seems to be beyond my capability.
