    That's my wife wheeling a piece for her roadster. She likes hot rods just fine.

    My wife just booked us a room at the host hotel for the GoodGuys "Indy" show, talked me into getting the 6.0 LS1 for the Diamond T, and is busy planning the rebuild of our "Tini-Home" trailer project. She's into it. Having our car featured in "HOT ROD" hasn't hurt her enthusiasm one little bit! :D

  5. I quote my ex girlfriend "If you ever talk about cars again I'm going to explode, I'm sorry but its true" and I barely said a word about them even before she said that :( (yet she would talk about horses and books all day, and I listened)

    We finished my wifes 1970 Cougar XR-7 (she drove on in college and had to have another) a couple years ago and we did the show thing and she did real she likes to just cruse. She goes to all of ther swap mets with me (she has a better eye looking for parts than I do) and now I have finished my 53' Merc Convertible so last year we started going to the cruses together and it is a blast.....

    My wife is very tolerant of my "car sickness". Swap Meets & most shows are for time spent with my friends/buddies. She has her stuff to do, I've got mine. Works out very nicely.

    Mine hates it...most times the only reason she goes is to get a nice meal after the show. Giz'

    my girlfriend isnt into cars or going to shows at all. I took her to a local cruise in a couple yrs ago and she would make fun of that particular show to her friends..and still does to some degree now. i dont take her along that much.

    I swear that I will go it alone before I get another one that is not supportive of what I am doing, and what makes me happy.

    When I was dating my wife, I asked if she would like to go to the local cruise in. She enthusiastically said yes. While we were there, she peeked into the back of a <yawn> '69 Camaro, looked at the blue bottle and said "oooh- Nitrous!"

    figured her as a keeper right then.

    And, she swiped the change jars from September to about a month ago, skimmed twenty bucks here and there on the grocery bill to hand me an envelope full of cash and said "go get a project car."

    Yeah, I was right.
  18. I don't want to hear, "You don't need another car!" So, I skipped my first marriage. So if she ever says, "we should sell one these cars!" Imma tell her, "She's starting to sound like my Ex-Wife!" She'll more than likely say, "I thought I was your first wife." An I will assure her, she is..but she's starting to sound like my Ex Wife! So maybe after I finish up the Lakebed Racer project, that I haven't even started on. Maybe then I will come out of my cave. Otherwise, I dont mind the extra room full of the parts I don't want out of my sight!

    My current girlfriend loves the shows and wants to come out into the garage with me and work on my car!! and not only that she loaned me $400 to buy my galaxie!!! I think shes a keeper!!
  20. My wife loves cars and the car scene. For us, it starts on Friday night and goes to Sunday night. She is a great helper in the garage when I need a third hand and my son is not around.

    My wife loves it! She probably puts more miles on my 38 chev than I do. Kathy is one of the Lipstick Run girls and travels all over the the place with "Hot Rod Liz" and Babs. My daughter Dana and grandson Alex cruise Winnipeg and area in my Chevy II convert. This is family fun!!! Tom

    My wife not only enjoys it, she helps me with the hot rod.
  24. It's terrible. Don't get involved with women that are into cars, they'll suck up all your time and money. They break band saw blades, forget to shut the gas bottle off, and steal those cool parts you have stashed away for future projects.

    my wife is a through and through gearhead just like me. she loves working on cars nearly as much as i do and she puts me in my place when i start talking crazy talk or go off the traditional path. she makes me walk the line for sure!

    this is her tuning up her 65 lesabre. she had french manicured nails under those gloves LOL

  26. my wife of 8yrs is into it somewhat, but hates the money cost side of it...we're both on low it hurts her to see me spend the money i do on my cars..other than that, we go cruising in my 65 Galaxie vert...she slides over to the middle of the seat..and thats kool to me...guys, its also a 50/50 my stuff, and do her stuff...happy wife is a happy home and daddy gets nooky

    ex wife dug the hot rod/custom scene. ex girlfriend did, too.

    damn shame that they found out about each other and made a big scene about it. lost a few cool cars in the divorce. had to sell the rest.

    current wife is just tolerable, but doesn't understand hot rods... and definitely not into 'em. (does like the harleys in the garage, though).
