    Besides 1911s what else do you guys collect or what else do you guys do as a hobby?

    I don't any more but my Hot Wheel collection was out of control at one time. Now I really don't do anything else because of work and not having to much spare time. Some day I will be picking up something like this

    I didn't want to post this in the GNG because I don't want all the nonsense from there and I just wanted to ask you guys here in the best 1911 forum on the net.
     

    Wanna kill these ads? We can help!

    Ah just had to throw one or two in there. Nice Gixxer though. I had an R6 but sold it about two years ago. Almost got ran over by a lady in a Suv on the phone and decided that was the last straw. To many close calls and I didn't want my daughters to grow up with no daddy because some a-hole wasn't paying attention.

    I would have that thing on some 24" rims with a lot more bling to match my blinged out Taurus 1911. :rofl:

    Back to reality, one of my Camaro. Twin turbo charge that small block and paint it completely battle ship gray. Matching 18" colored rims.

    Not as much fun in the turns and wheelies are a thing of the past, but a better chance my three sons will have a father as they grow up.:supergrin:
