    Funny thing happened last night, my mother in law sniped about my motorcycle collection. I blurted out there’s more in the garage that are awaiting restoration.

    my parents died in their early 60's so i always felt that i would probably pass at around that same time. so when i was in my early 30's I bought a 350z. added a supercharger to it, also airride since the stance scene was in at the time and a bunch of mods. looking back, it was a waste of money. I should of bought another house.

    Does Skydiving count as a mid-life crisis ?

    Had a lense replacement in my right eye last year. What surprised me even more than the better vision was how much brighter colors appeared

    Mostly stock - but I do have a suction cup phone holder - its pretty sweet
    While maybe not mid-life crisis purchases (I am 38, so maybe a little early), I did have two non-daily car purchases in the past few years that I don't really have a need for. I don't have any great shots of either sadly. I need to fix that.

    2002 Tacoma V6 4x4 5-sp - this is a Tacoma forum, but it is special to me. I always wanted this car since I was selling them during college. I will likely be selling it later this year but I have loved working on this thing, cleaning it up and road tripping with it.

    1987 Porsche 924S - essentially a narrow body early-944. I had it lifted two weeks ago and really enjoy throwing this thing around. The Buc-ee's shot is when I was driving it home after getting the work done - you can almost still see the blue on the white letters. I have since gotten some mud on it on won't wash it off!

    So far…. Added fog lights swapped halogens to led’s, interior lights to led’s, bed lights added, led/strobe brake lights, trying to figure out the right leds for turn signals.
    Been through three vehicles in the past year. I have a problem.

    I never really understood the whole midlife crises scenario. My mom always told me when you discover your passion find a way to make a living doing it and marry your best friend and everthing else will fall into place. Oh yeah and get a dog. :D

    I am not quite midlife yet, but I have always wanted an International Scout II. There are lots of old Broncos and Blazers, but not many Scouts have survived. Granted, there are reasons for that.
