Just figured I'd ask if anybody had hobbies besides those involving automobiles.
I compete in triathlons. So far two sprint distance ones, one Olympic distance, and one half Ironman.
And I raise ball pythons. Started out with one from a petstore in college now I have too many to count and it's turned into a pretty successful side business that is allowing me to order my Camaro. Here's a few examples of what I have.
The one at the bottom of this first pic is a normal so you can have a frame of reference for the differences of the others.
I do not have any other hobbies besides cars. I would like to get into a hobby that could produce an income, much like yourself, huff747. I've been looking into power washing since that's intrigued me for half a decade.
I never really thought of power washing as a hobby
It sounds odd, but I like what the finished product looks like. I have sand blasted before and I really enjoyed it. It's also the same with snow removal. I love shoveling the driveway and sidewalks. I think it'd be so much fun to push snow around with a truck.
It's just nice to see how clean something can look, or in the case of snow, the "path" you just created.
For me it's motorcycles:
'02 Kawasaki KLR 650 (for sale)
'94 BMW R 1100 RSL
'74 Honda CB 360 (daily rider resto)
'73 Honda CL 350 (trailer queen)
'72 Honda CB 350 (resto, possible parts bike or for sale)
These vintage Honda's can be bought cheep not running, and flipped after minor work. Parts are plenty, even NOS stuff is still out there. I won't get rich from'em, it's just fun to work on the bikes of my childhood days.
