I thought I would post up a few pictures of (most of) my hand tools that I use working on this car, and many others. I can almost remember when I bought each one and why. I'm not that vain, I was just cleaning out my toolbox and I decided to take a picture..
The newest addition is a Craftsman 36mm, 1/2" drive socket for taking off wheel nuts and the gland nut. I also picked up a new 3/8" drive ratchet. I thought I had lost my normal one, but held out hope that I would find it so I didn't want a duplicate just yet. This one is articulated and quite long. We'll see how well it works.
I, of course, found my normal 3/8" ratchet the next day.
Looking through the table you can see several things. I like the Craftsman quick release teardrop ratchets, from 1/4 to 1/2" drive. I also have the accompanying sockets, standard depth. I don't really have any deep sockets and I haven't noticed that I'm missing anything. I also have a mostly complete set of metric wrenches - lost a few over the years. I have a 3/8" set of metric hex bits. These are great to have instead of normal Allen wrenches.
You can also see pullers for tie rods and ball joints, hammers, and a bunch of Torx and Triple square bits. These things are annoying to keep up with but definitely useful on European cars. One thing I do is try and keep my tools clean and more or less organized. I hate picking up a dirty wrench.
