The True Measure of a Man - How Many Cylinders Do You Own?

I've always joked with my gearhead friends that the true measure of a man...is the number of cylinders he owns. Everything counts: Jeeps, cars, trucks, boats, side-by-sides, quads, motor cycles, weed whackers, air compressors, RC cars, lawn mowers, chain saws, etc.

So let's have some fun while under quarantine. How many cylinders do you own?

I'll start:

8 - my jeep (had to list this first)
8 - my car
8 - my diesel tow rig
4 - my wife's car (well, it's a turbo, anyway)
5 - multiple air compressors
2 - motor cycle
1 - chain saw
1 - weed whacker
1 - hedge trimmer
1 - 20' pole saw
2 - RC Nitro Trucks

So I'm a 41.

Post up! Let's see who is the manliest man!

(Hopefully GBeasley (Greg) doesn't see this thread, 'cause he will beat us all - he has like 128 Jeeps!

Jeff

Just missing the V8 for now. And V8 guys should multiply their cylinder count by at least 1,2 - just for the fun factor.

Well, if you want to up-count the V8's, then we need to talk about the mini vans.....

But 56 is definitely impressive!

@222Doc all the counted compressors are piston
And i did not count the daughters honda (although i am the one who pays for insurance and maintenance )
I also did not count disassembled or stored engines lying on a shelf. Just that what is running

a bitoff topic - but looking you are from Lake Hawasu - i remember we had some great time there and in the Desert Splash some years ago with my
good friend from Germany. Maybe you knew him - he had a custom built rig with chev. merlin motor on rockwells. Unfortunately he passed away
almost right as we came back

We sold off a few vehicals the past few years, but they were all 4 banger's. though one was not sold but gave to a friend that needed something right away as his truck died.


yes i do remember him and that BB jeep on rockwells! thing is a beast, bit to big and heavy but still a beast. he was there a few year too. sorry to hear he passed. I missed last years do to some parts not making here in time for me. I was a member of P4W like 6 years. some fun short trails in Parker. But most trail trails here that are hard are short. Just to bad its to hot here in the summer to wheel, at least for me. NO way im out there in this 100-125 heat fixing a busted heep on a trail. to old for that stuff. next week im in Kyburz for 30 days of rubicon fordyce and what ever else trouble i can get it to. at least its cool up there.
