    I know we all love cars of all shapes and sizes (especially Cs), but what other hobbies do you enjoy outside of the car world?

    I do some mild woodworking and metalworking, and I collect watches.

    If I'm not working...

    I'm developing Android Infotainment for my Daily Driver.

    I just recently let go of my Saltwater hobby...

    I occasionally make custom Vivariums. This one I made for a family with a child with developmental disabilities, but he loved frogs.

    Then there's my shooting addiction...

    14522956_1830719853825417_2875063743971346288_n.jpg

    That's a few of the reasons why I feel like I never have time to enjoy this aspect of life... (WoY)

    These 3 trucks plus 9 trailers, between driving, wrenching, and dispatching keep me pretty occupied. I'm glad I enjoy it or it would seem like work.

    Currently I´ve got three fresh water aquariums and two different bicycles, but the bookshelf has never enough books.

    paddling and fishing are also on the list, though only in the summertime.

    Another to add: model car kits.

    I enjoy guns, mostly older stuff, and fishing, especially salt water fishing. Sadly, I haven't been able to do much of either this past year, so no good/recent pictures to post. I have plans to change that in the fall.

    Raising these goofballs... I don't have time for hobbies. And that's fine with me.

    That's not my EDC, that's just to feed the recoil junkie in me.

    I still play baseball one night a week in an over 35 league(hardball not softball), use to collect diecast(and still have a huge collection)but gave up on buying in the last 2 years or so. Also a huge Marilyn Monroe fan and still sporadically buy when the feeling hits me.

    I do a fair bit of shooting myself. I have a lot of old Winchesters that I take out. Problem is its getting so damn expensive.

    Hockey and music would be my other hobbies. I play a '75 Fender Precision Bass and love classic rock or blues. Watching or playing hockey is another passion of mine. The best part is I can share both of these with my 17 year old son. He plays a Fender Stratocaster and we go to "stick time" at the local ice rink one day a week, full gear and a good work out for an hour or so. Sometimes there is a pick up game with other guys there and at 57 years old I'm the Gordie Howe of the crowd. It is the best feeling when I'm skating along side my son.

    While I wouldn't call myself a "collector", I do really like watches and have a few.

    These two were my Dad's. He bought this Seiko in 1980. I wear it all the time.

    This Movado was given to him in 1968 for 25 of service at the Lipe Rollway clutch factory. I had this one gone through as it had stopped working for him and that's when he bought the Seiko.

    I bought this from a friend of my son's. He got it when he was cleaning out his grandfather's stuff. He asked me about it and all I had to do was match the jeweler's wholesale offer, so I couldn't pass it up. Part of the deal was that my son gets it when I pass. I think my son put that clause in. This isn't one of the high dollar watches everyone thinks of.

    Then I have stuff like this Russian Poljot. This thing is too heavy to wear, but it was cheap and funky looking.

    I do a little bit of shooting.
