Too many 3 four wheeled vehicles with proper spares + complete set of wheels with tires for the other season's use. I don't want to add it up.

For me right now, 43 pneumatic tires including spares. Ten (10) internal combustion engines.

No mower, tiller, snow thrower, etc..., but included in the above are two wheelbarrows.

Oh, including the RV built-in Onan generator and a spare, that's 12 IC engines!


PS. Ooops! Miscounted one scooter. Add 2 more tires, and one more engine.

Hi,

I don't have your neighbor's variety but unfortunately can compete w his numbers:

4 cars x 5
1 motorhome x 5
1 trailer x 5
1 hobby car 9 sets x 4 (3 sets are dead but we still have them)

3 bikes
1 wheelbarrow (borrowed - does it count)

= 73
