Owning multiple vehicles can be a hassle worth enjoying if you're willing to spend the time and the money required to acquire and maintain them. But when it's hard to make ends meet while underused valuable hunks of metal, plastic and rubber sit happily taking up garage space, journeys into the depths of other people's well-developed automotive obsessions will either bring you and your cars closer together, or compel you to sell them off before you become one of those fanatics. A recent video by eGarage is one of those journeys, and it's not for the faint of heart: D'Ann and Wayne Rauh own 65 Dodge and SRT Vipers in a collection of automobiles that exceeds 100.

We're not sure if the couple has developed heat-resistant calves from stepping over Viper door sills made burning-hot by side-exhaust pipes, but we wouldn't be surprised if they did. We did learn that their obsession with the no-holds-barred sports car started in 2006 with a trip to a dealership to buy just one Viper, which goes to show how innocently car obsessions can start. But the Rauhs seem to be doing just fine - perhaps better - 64 more Vipers later.

Watch the video below for the full story and to see what eGarage claims is the world's largest Viper collection.

      Must be pretty boring owning 65 cars that all have driving characteristics within a stone's throw of one another.

      Gee, I wonder how many Vipers Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette would have had before they lost their heads.

      In general I'm all for excess. It's a part of car culture. But this is something else entirely. All she talked about were the aesthetics and the sound the ACR-X makes tooting around their property? She brought it up in defense, but this really is no different than a shoe collection.

      "I like to take the ACR-X out and toodle it around the property." Yes, that is the EXACT purpose for which engineers spent countless hours on. If I owned a car company, I would refuse to sell my cars to people like this.

      At least the Vipers are all driven. Many cars in collections like that never burn their original tanks of gas. That poor ACR-X though.. Tooling around the property is the best they can do for it? Hire a driver if youre too afraid to push the damn thing hard and take it to track days... That poor thing needs more than tooling arous.

      I had the opportunity to meet the lady in the video at one of the Viper events. She is so sweet. Really a down to earth nice lady. I am happy for her and her support of the Viper team. Everyone has has a passion, her just happen to be an expensive love of the American Supercar

        I'm sure she's a very nice person, but the video shows very little passion and a whole lot of "look at all the pretty things I bought." That's why it's getting such a sour reception.
