Crikey! You're lucky, and if you don't mind me saying, probably loaded too. I've got a small collection of cars (which changes all the time) most of which are just white goods. Still, they more than do the job I guess:

 

1993 Nissan Serena 1.6i 16v

1985 BMW 524td

1985 BMW 324d

1991 BMW 316i

1996 BMW 523i

2009 Mazda MX-5 2.0

If you haven't noticed, I'm a bit of a Beemer man, but anything that's fun to drive and a bit different does it for me. The 324d belonged to my uncle since new, and I inherited from him nearly 20 years back. This tempted me to buy the bigger and more powerful 524td last year. Since then, I treated myself to an MX-5, a fantastic little weekend car. The 316i was a bargain I couldn't resist a couple of years ago, and I purchased the 523i last week. As for the Serena, well, we've got a couple of grandkids, and perhaps more to come in the future!

Wow, you must feel so lucky! You're right, not enough lifetime to get all the cars you love but even if you have few of them is just enough. I literally saw few collection pieces during a donate car USA event, I was amazed how many interesting cars one can find there. You guys should check it out!
