I collect dicast models of Corvettes, and sport bikes.
Also have quite the collection of golf balls with different course logos on them. Currently have over 300 and have actually played about 200 of the courses. All displayed in 3 nice oak racks with glass.

Rocks, minerals and fossils. I worked in mining and exploration for years and I still like to visit mines and mine dumps looking for and identifying minerals. There's a great mineral show in Denver in September, and one in Tucson in February. I like to pan for gold too.

I can't really say I collect them, but I have many motorcycle magazines (Motorcyclist, Cycle World, Cycle , and Cycle Guide ) from the late 70's to the early 90's.

Not sure that I "collect" anything, but I do have several models and posters of Corvettes.

I have a dead lighter collection! Buttloads of em! Some of em are place specific, so they remind me of when I where I had used them.

When I was younger, I collected postcards from all over the world. Everytime someone I knew was going anywhere, they'd send them to me. We had a family friend that was a missionary, so that helped a lot. I also started collecting turtles from different areas of the globe. My four turtles rock!!!!
