What's your number... OF CARS OWNED IN YOUR LIFETIME?

This was inspired by a thread @WileERobby has going right now…

How many years have you owned a performance/classic vehicle ?

As many of you may know, I archived all the cars my dad owned in a tribute I started to him here on FBBO last year about this time.
Dad owned 64 cars in the 66 years he lived.
They were all drivers, many early on being affordable “bought-on-the-side-of-road” specials.
Not long after archiving dad’s cars, I was led to archive my own.
Although I likely won’t catch dad in number of cars, I certainly made a dent of my own.
And I know some of you guys will have some pretty steep numbers here.
I’m ready, so…

Go ahead, how many have you owned?
And list what you can remember!
Post some pics along the way if you have ‘em!
All makes and models welcome here.

Ha ha......
I'm at 70 and hope to increase that number since I don't want to be dead anytime soon.
Most have been Mopars, most have been A body cars that didn't run and were projects or parts cars.
Only three have been B bodies. Two '70 Chargers and a '68 Satellite wagon.
 
Car count 20ish, motorcycle count 40ish, minibike count too many, sleep number 85
 
Probably 40 cars or so and add maybe 15 pickups. Have 3 pickups now. Bike count is low....two street bikes and one homemade mini bike and a couple of go carts. Have had 3 GM (all 56's at the same time) cars and 5 Fords (all 1st gen Mustangs at the same time). Edit...had two trail bikes too. How could I forget those. Wife and I rode them all the time.

I love Go-Carts. I'd like to have one whether for dirt or street use.
 
Not many, once I have it I keep it. Maybe 15-16
5 of which I still have.
I've had several cars that I kept for 15+ years.....and had my 66 for 35 years and my 95 Dakota is going on 25 with my 97 2500 diesel going on 23 years. At one time I had 12 cars with half of them registered and driving.
