68 total so far.

16 are from two stroke engines.

8 pistons from the two miata motors are the only ones that do not currently run.

I am not counting any engines on my scrap pile.

Friend just called and told me he found a smoking deal on an LS7 (everything minus TB, PCM, and injectors) We are going halfsees and should be able to quadruple our money very quickly, So I will temporarily have anm additional very badass 8 cylinders.

A whopping total of five (5) pistons, all in working order.
I have a scooter in addition to my MX-5.

Kubota Diesel Tractor - 4
Ford Tractor - 4
IH Tractor - 4
Lawn Mowers - 9
Miata - 4
Accord - 4
Bronco - 8
Spare 302 - 8
56 Buick - 8
Ford F150 - 8
Ford F100 - 8
Maxima - 6
FB RX7 - 1/2
Fiero - 6
Other junk - 5 that I can think of

So... ---- - 87.5 We need to get rid of some ----. That's not counting junk engines that don't run or have no future plans of running and should be in a scrap yard, but I'm too lazy to load and carry them away. That number probably totals over 30.

Oops, forgot the '54 ****** Jeep. 4 more.

Let's not forget that Hustler had over 9000 posts without a Turbo on his car. So you are not failing that hard.

I currently have 20pistons in motors for vehicles that should run. 8 in the pickup truck, 8 for the 2 Miatas, and 4 for the Mazda 2.

You guessed my correctly I think. Though I don't really consider myself a redneck, but we do have cars all over the place here. It's a shared property and I live with family, so if I were alone I'd try to keep my number under 30.

miata-4, protege-4, truck-6, outboard-4, seadoo-2, lawn equip-3, rc plane-1 (2.8cc engine), in a box-4, air compressors-6.

Everything works reliably (plane hasn't been used in years but motor is functional) and looks presentable (snowblower and weed eater excluded because fugly).

A sub total of 28 ic pistons or 34 total, wife thinks it's getting ridiculous.
