My wife has worked very hard to convert me from an accumulator to a collector.
An accumulator gathers stuff - general stuff not specific stuff.
A collector collects stuff with at least a theme or common thread.
This would seem like a positive transition but it has its' drawbacks.
It is harder to break up a "set" or Pair
or a car that fits your " life list".
When I had accumulated things it was much easier to get rid of some that didn't "fit".
Anyway we stopped to look at a truck last week and the guy had a forward controls JEEP stake truck. This truck fit his collection perfectly but it made me go looking for one as well. 1960 Willys
