Yeah... I have a TON of mostly Snap On tools in a big Snap On box. I started buying when I was fifteen or sixteen and bought regularly as I could afford it. I never bought an expensive car or anything when I was in my twenties. Most of my purchases were tools. I upgraded boxes when I got a deal and always felt like I came out ahead.
Now, I have a job where I don't need my own tools on site although sometimes I have to bring something in to get something done. My stuff is all at home for my own use. When I need something now, I'm more likely to buy from HF or Craftsman or Eastwood or whoever sells the right tool for the job.
My dad is funny. He still works with my brother fixing diesel generators. Many years ago, when I began working in the family business, my dad had a hand box that he did 99% of the work out of and a small chest that had a hodgepodge of stuff in it. He and his then partner were like MASH doctors. They got the job done but maybe a little rough. I came into the generator shop after doing a couple of years setting up offshore speed boats. I was taught attention to detail at that shop like nothing else. When I started really collecting a serious set of tools, my dad saw that the quality of my work was a step up from having nicer benders or cutters or whatever job I was doing. He started upping his game as well. Now, at 72, my dad has two huge boxes loaded with an insane amount of tools. His newest thing is all the 18 volt Milwaukee Fuel stuff. I went to his house to help him do something and it was like the Home Depot display. I said what are you trying to do, die with the most toys?
