(AP) — Two-car and three-car garages aren't all that rare in affluent America, but what is the 75-car family to do? A few years back Laurence Whitmore built a 5.000-square-foot building to house the best of his automobile collection, but he acquires cars at such a pace that the structure was filled before he finished it. Whitmore's wheat ranch filled with cars and his 26-room house filled with antiques are less a symbol of affluence and more a symptom of addiction to collecting. "Every time a relative passed away we'd end up with another house full of furniture. You can't sell something you've been given, so we'd just make room for it,",he says.

W«dne<day, April 21, 1976 m I gathering since the line went out of production in 1961. He and his oldest son, Jack, have a model made every year after 1947 but still suffer "a few gaps'' from 1923 to 1947. They even collected an old school bus, which is loaned once a year to the local high school students for their "senior sneak." Meanwhile, as the autos accumulated in the yard, Ada . Ruth Whitmore was filling the house, preserving the history of the prosperous dryland wheat farming area that was first settled early in the 1900s. The collection includes rolltop desks, marble-topped dressers, clocks and an entire room filled with stained-glass windows. "We had to do something," she said. "We'had all those rooms upstairs filled with stuff and four kids sleeping in one room." Whitmore then built a 960-square-foot concrete structure dubbed the "Whoop and Holler" museum, and again the collecting outpaced the construction. "You wouldn't believe the stuff people give us." Laurence says. Not long ago someone left an antique cobbler's bench in the back of his pickup while it was parked in town. "Never did figure out who brought us that," he said, "Laurence wanted the bell from the Mablon Church several years ago, and he had to tear down the whole building to get it," says Mrs. Whitmore. Enough is enough, however, and one of these days the Whit- mores are going to stop collecting.
