Anyone have other hobbies besides modding?

Just curious to see if anyone has any hobbies besides their cars? Collect anything? Comic geeks? Toy collectors? Collecting Nike shoes?

I get bored if I'm not at work. I think it's my only real hobby.

Drums in a band. If I had time I'd still fly rc helicopters and 3d foamies.

I have a decent sized die cast car collection. Mostly 1/18, a few 1/12 cars. Most of them are Autoarts.

I also built a lot of model kits as a kid, now I only deal in rare high end kits called Pochers that I buy and sell.

I don't know if billiards counts as a hobby and I am also a bit rusty. But I played a lot and did amateur tournaments into my early 20's.

One hobby gets picked up as another slides away. Way into hang gliding for about 20-25 years. In my mid '40s kinda drifted out of that into more sedate hobbies - photography and metal shop (got a mill, several lathes and god knows what else crowding the Z4 for garage space ). More recently I've been spending a fair bit of time cycling and a bit less on photography, so maybe the great hobby rotation is continuing.

For sure me too. Either guns or car parts. I flip back and forth. Sold one gun to get a set of Volks. LOL

FN FS2000 with Mars Red dot = $3500

Volk TE37s = $2900

Almost even. lol

Yes it is. Helios took to long to repair after crashes and when I got bigger sozes(trex 500 3G) I was too scared to really fly. 3d foamies are easy and cheap but you need sub 3mph wind to fly. I gave up on both few years back
