Well........ I don't really know how to follow the 240-lightbar guy.....   :drooling: I am currently working on putting an updated video together (the last video I posted, I only had 9 bars), but my current collection consists of the following:

- Federal Signal Streethawk B/B

- Federal Signal Jetsonic R/B (independent rotators)

- Federal Signal Twinsonic 12F R/B

- Code 3 MX7000 CUSTOM ALL D-Tech R/B

- Code 3 MX7000 Strobe w TA R/B

- Federal Signal Aerodynic R/R

- Whelen Edge 10000 BLINK R/B w TA

- Federal Signal Vision R/W/B

- Code 3 LP6000 R/B

- Code 3 MX7000 Clear Dome with R/B cylinders

- Whelen Edge 9000 B/B

- Federal Signal Jetstrobe R/B/A

- Code 3 MX7000 CUSTOM ALL Flasher B/G

- Federal Signal TurboBeam 2000 A/A

- Whelen Edge 9000 Split R/B/A

- Smith & Wesson B/B

- Federal Signal Vista R/C

- Federal Signal Jetstream (synchronized rotators) R/A

- Code 3 SD Clear Dome with R/B Bulbs

- Code 3 XL9000 w Oscillators R/C

- Whelen 8000 R/R  **In Transit**

- Tomar Heliobe B/B  **In Transit**

I have all of the bars hooked up to switch boxes/PSU's, and all of the cabling ran inside the walls, so every bar is always operational, no switching wires, etc, etc.  I'm not really a mini-bar or Beacon kind of guy.  I have just a couple more bars that I would like to add, including finally getting a LED bar up there..... but not like your standard straight line Liberty or something.... I want something random and weird.... like a Vista SL, Vision SL, Arjent, etc.

Is the amber AeroDynic actually an AeroTwinSonic with independent rotators on the outboard ends? If so, that's a cool mod! New and old together :)

With another pickup this afternoon of a blue/blue XL9000 bar I'm coming up on 280 lightbars in the collection... I think I'll quit at the 300 mark
Due to lack of space .. (how strange...) I've got 2 storageboxes in which there are about 260 in total at the moment.
Once I've found another house, with big enough garage, shed or place to build a mancave/workplace from scratch I'll finally be able to start work on the lightbars, repair, polish and hang 'em up the walls.

that first picture reminds me of the storage shed that had my stuff in when the ex and i split, luckily i now have all my lights in my new place.

Still kinda got my mind to build maybe 2 more streethawks, and then im gonna call it quits (AFTER I get my custom LEDX bar done).

My collection has shrunk some with the move, but i still work on my lights when i can

Give it time and you'll be surprised what you'll amass. Plus, the contacts and friends you make collecting these items are part of the fun ;)

Nicely said. The people you'll meet or be in contact with is a great part of this colorful hobby!
A lot of people think it's a strange hobby, but it is loads of fun, and like I said very colorful. I'll never quit!

The struggle is once you've gone past the " I have room for more bars" phase, you'll eventually have to downsize and start to wonder which ones you absolutely need to keep.
Eventually, you'll realize you can't let one more go..... but still need to let one go ;)

I always tell people there's stranger ones out there
Ha.. That's for sure! Shrunken heads are hard to come by so I figure Lights is a good alternative.

Now I do have some beacons.. in fact I spent yesterday building some new shelves for a few I recently acquired. Two I purchased with the intent to resale...but.... they look so nice with the others... I think they have bonded..

I'm coming close to 380 fullsize lightbars at this moment in total.
About 50 or so mini-bars, 80 plastic crates with spareparts.
