As long as the wife is fine with it, its just a fun hobby!
I now have four snowblowers:
1. 1971 Ariens, the main working machine.
2. another 1971 Ariens, the backup to the main machine.
3. a 1962 "first series" Ariens that was given to me.
4. a non-running 1961 Snowbird, that I bought for four reasons:
It was only $25.
I wanted a Snowbird.
Its cool and unusual.
I would like to try to restore it, or at least get it running, "just because"..
so yeah, I really only need one! two really, because I do want a backup
in case the original fails when its needed most.
and the other two are "just for fun"..
As long as you have the space, money, time, and wife approval, its all good!
I have always had the wife approval, but im currently low on the other three points..but they will replenish eventually, to some degree at least.
This isnt my photo, but this could easily be me!
and it might be, someday:
perhaps not to that extreme..but if I collected everything I was interested in, I would have about six snowblowers, four garden tractors, one full-size Farmall H tractor, a 1929 Ford Model A, a 1965 Mustang Fastback, and a 1969 Mustang fastback.
especially right now (lacking space, money and time)..and its unlikely I will ever own ALL those things.. but we can dream..(I'll consider myself lucky if I can someday own *one* classic car, let alone three..)
so yeah, eventually, "using them all" is no longer the point!
most hobbies dont make logical sense..which is also not the point.
