My father, who was a die-in-the-wool gear head, died about a year and a half ago. As he aged the things he cared about slowly went by the wayside. He had many nice boats over the years but finally stopped that. He had a Bluebird motorhome he'd bought new but stopped feeling comfortable driving it, so he sold that. He had numerous motorcycles but rode less and less, switched to a three wheeler, but finally stopped riding that. Eventually he stopped driving altogether. Because he had dementia he thought he could still drive, so we kept his Goldwing and Mercedes convertible around to placate him. We hid the keys and made a variety of excuses why he couldn't drive that particular day. The next day he'd forget the day before so we'd do the same again. Eventually he stopped asking and we stopped bringing him to the building where they were stored. If you die suddenly, your "stuff" isn't going to matter. If it's a slow process, you'll stop driving at some point and as your health and metal state deteriorates, stuff will matter less and less. Your best bet would be to wait until you reach that point and either sell it to someone who will appreciate it or give it to a family member who will.
