Weird. Although I wasn't specifically a gun collector (they are a little
harder to get in NJ, but not impossible), I did collect weapons in

Oddly, I have recently given up that hobby, right about the same time
that I started getting out of computer collecting as well. They must both
operate from the same chunk of brain :-)

And as for the old cars... ever since my 1965 T-Bird disaster, I have
prefered to view them from a far and simply drool and wish I could have
them. Although now that I have a house, garage, and driveway, I might
take a serious look at getting something to restore (and finally have a
hobby my wife will want to join me in!)
