How many of you have 2?

Last year in April I bought my wife a 2009 GXP with just under 18k miles. It was mean yellow and perfectly stock. We had the windows tinted, custom rubber mats, stubby, and a DDM short throw shifter added. We also replaced the original tires with BFG comp 2's. It has been a fun car but with two kids (11, 3) we sometimes would like to be able to take them both out. I am seriously considering a second GXP. It may wait until late summer or fall though. My wife would like a less "loud" color so we will see what comes across for sale. We paid about $10,500 for ours so I will be looking for a similar deal. We may be starting our own "club"

That was a great price!

We picked up the coupe in 09, and the vert in 11. They may be double the fun but they are so double the expense.

I have 4, and have had 5. 2 Redlines running, and two NA's that are being combined to make a running driving NA. The other one may end up being a track car or a trailer. Still have not decided on that.

I have 2...
One is lower mileage with a bunch of performance upgrades (and a bunch of headaches) and one is higher mileage (120k+) and bone stock, aka reliable.

Anything more than one smacks of automotive stuttering, although having an vert and a coupe or an NA and a GXP doesn't seem far fetched.

I've never understood people that collect the same car over and over again. There was one guy that had 9 MGBs - when asked why he would own more than maybe one GT and one convertible, he was at a loss for words. More is not always better.

Current fleet:
1957 Jamaican bodied MGA
1958 MGA Twin Cam (race car)
1962 MGA Deluxe Coupe
1971 Jensen Interceptor
2009 Pontiac Solstice GXP Coupe
2007 BMW Z4M coupe
Recently departed: 1965 Jensen CV8, 1969 Lamborghini Islero S, 1988 Pontiac Fiero GT, 1969 MGC roadster

What about having a red one and a blue one? Or a cloth and a leather interior? Like having more than one suit, or multiple pairs of shoes.

I also note that some of the multiples are in two different locations. And maybe a family of four wants to travel together, in pairs.
