Drunk Do I have too many cars?

Sometimes I think I have some type of addiction problem - I mean I don't drink and I don't smoke and I am not a big spender but there is one thing that I just can't resist - a nice car. The only problem is that I now have accumilated 8 cars and one van. Where will it all end - what do you think I should do? Here is the list of cars.

2005 Alfa Romeo GT 1.9JTD
2002 VW Caddy van
1991 VW Polo
1990 VW Golf GTi
1983 Alfasud 1.5Ti
1980 Ford Escort 1.3L
1977 Peugeot 504
1975 Triumph TR6
1975 Daimler 4.2

Re: Do I have too many cars?

The Polo is too much. And so the Golf (that Golf )

The Caddy can be useful to move the dirty.

Re: Do I have too many cars?

7 would be OK - one for every day of the week, anymore than that is slightly OTT

Re: Do I have too many cars?

Ditch the VW's, the Escort and the Pug. The rest is great, but keep adding

Re: Do I have too many cars?

I own five, and see no problem with it...........If you can afford it, and you like cars (which obviously you do) go ahead.
My argument is that I can afford it, I'm not letting my family go hungry, And it satisfies some urge inside me, so why not........

Go ahead buy as many as you like..............

Re: Do I have too many cars?

There are some strange ones in the mix there (the polo and escort come to mind). I'd keep the Golf, since the MkII GTi was a great all-rounder and full of character.

Re: Do I have too many cars?

The Escort is for sale - I don't intend to keep that - and my Polo is out in my apartment in Spain and used only as a holiday car. Well it saves having to rent a car everytime I go out there.
