Other Hobbies, interests, collections?

I know we are all here for the love of BMX. But I was curious if any1 other than myself, likes to collect other things or has time for other hobbies? I am big time into Hot Wheels and die cast. I know it sounds cheesy, but its true! I love cars, beer, bikes, NASCAR, beer and oh, did I mention Beer? LOL...just my curiousity gettin the best of me!

Re: Other Hobbies, interests, collections?

I like vintage guitars and amps.  I like building recording gear, so I have a collection of parts I'll probably never use.  I work on Volkswagens, too.  Still debating on whether or not to keep my Jetta project.  This bike addiction has hit hard.  tongue

Re: Other Hobbies, interests, collections?

I drag race motorcycles every weekend, been doing it since I was 18 years old. All the bikes I race are high HP street legal bikes like my turbo hayabusa.

I just found E.T. the Extra-Terestrial for 2600 at an antique show.  Bought it for $3 even tho I haven't had an Atari game system in 25 years.  Just thought it was cool.  Now all I need is the Kuwahara to go with it.

Re: Other Hobbies, interests, collections?

I collect Hot Wheels (mid 70's to mid 80's) and Punk Rock Albums... nothing beats the sound of vinyl.  I wish I could afford more bikes, and if I was loaded, I would have a barn full of muscle cars!

Re: Other Hobbies, interests, collections?

I used to collect die cast NASCAR stuff in the early '90's until about 1996. Sold a lot of the big stuff on ebay to buy parts for my hot rod '26 Ford Lakes Modified. Still have some 1:64 stuff left, good stuff, let me know what you like I may have it.

I play snare in a police pipe and drum band, kilt and everything.

Soon I will be the pilot of a 1970 top fuel dragster being restored for cacklefest events. It's my fathers car and he doesn't fit in it so I'll get the nod when it's done.

But the BMX bikes and the time this hobby allows me to share with my son has been the best hobby I've had I think ever. Those rides with him are priceless, I can't wait to get him to the track.

Hey whiskeydented, the '66 rocks.  In Highschool I had a '66 El Camino with a 396, 400 trans, and a 3.73 12 bolt.  Sold the whole thing around 1989 for $700.  Boy, sure could of built some sweet bikes if I would have waited to sell the car in 2007!
