Default Donor count, what's in your Frankenstein?

I thought about how many different cars I have pulled parts from for my jalopy and was astounded at the number. And by donor I mean parts designed different car so I'm not counting universal aftermarket parts or the 96 Miata chassis.

99 Miata, , Instrument cluster
95 Miata, , Interior
02 Camaro, , Engine, trans, computer
00 Firebird, , Front brake calipers
95 Camaro, , Rear brake calipers
96 Camaro, , LT1 Throttle body for the exhaust cut out
02 Corvette, , Intake bridge
00 Corvette, , Front rotors
04 Corvette, , LS6 clutch
97 Cavalier, , ODBII plug and cruise switch
70 Chevelle, , LS swap Radiator
96 Explorer, , Brake Master
95 Thunderbird, , Rear End
94 Grand Cherokee, , Power steering cooler
07 Mini Cooper, , Rear Rotors

How about you?

Let's see:
99 Miata - gauge cluster
04 Miata - hood
05 GTO - engine, trans, ECU, gas pedal
08 CTS - diff
90 Miata - seat belt receivers

....pretty disappointing list...not very Frankensteiny
