My sweetie, RoseMarie, of so many years and a car I just built for a friend.....
a cherished picture im sure..... thanks
"Beautiful car and wife,,Nads,,your still ugly"
Ha, I was thinking the same thing.
re my wife:
pros: lets me spend $ on my car without asking, likes to go to car shows, likes loud cars that are fast. Has no problem wearing high heels, a bra and daisy dukes in public, and looks good doing it.
cons: she spends twice as much money as I do
In the 60's it was very common to call your Wife or girlfriend your "Old Lady", especially here in California among other places, and there was nothing disrespectful about it - Just a bit of Pop Culture from the time
My best friend (my wife) and me playing the jukebox in the garage.
My two most favorite things.

Well Don,just because it was popular or as you call it pop culture does not mean that is was right.
I never liked it even back then and felt it was more of a put down than it ever was a term of endearment.
I was never a big fan of pop culture or hippie culture, whatever you want to call it.
Mind you I was a long way from California
Jeff,how you guys doing?Had fun with you guys at the LSRU.
Here is mine, sitting by her car on Saturday, while i was visiting a buddy's shop in Akron Ny. Gotta love a woman who encourages me to enjoy a visit with friends while she chills under big old shade tree...............
Mine is not my wife YET but,
-She pinstripes with me all the time (side by side).
-Encourages me to work on my car and build my models (plastic hot rods).
-Loves cruising just as much if not more than I do.
-Really wants to learn how to build cars.
-Dreams of owning a kustom candy brandy wine '57 Chevy.
-Always there to help out when I work on my '56 Ford.
-Loves listening to the album Shut Down by the Beach Boys
-Watches Hot Rod Havoc and Mad Fab. DVDs with me all the time.
I think I did alright as well Can't wait to spend the rest of my life with her
My lovely partner in life and I freezing our asses off at 50mph in my o.t. 1955 CJ5.
The second pic clearly shows that she doesn't always need to wear a ski mask in public.
Here's my old lady...
And here's my cruisin' buddy...
My Wife, Daughter and me
Sounds like your your gf is cool and based upon your photos she is into the hobby just as much as you.....Marry her pronto...so many of my male friends have spouses who hate their xyz/car hobby/fill in the blank and they have to get permission to buy or do nearly anything.
Best friends as well as lovers is the best...
That's what I was thinking. Not sure everyone would be smiling.
Mine Get to work
Here's my honey in my old roadster that she now claims as her own.
Well, since you asked - that would be an issue for me....
But as long as the positives outweigh the negatives.....
Here's mine posing with the rest of the calender girls and the mistress.
Okay, so I'm a liar!
Here is a couple of my wife and our model A coupe..
Such a Rad time. MR. FORD and I stayed up til 3am making this thing run just to do this day.
Well, I finally have a pic of me & the wife Patricia I didn't have to scan (no scanner here). We celebrated our 39th anniversary last week. This is a crappy cell phone pic. I don't know how to make it any larger.
She helped me assemble engines from oil pan to carb back in the day.
In the same car, she would cut
a better light & turn a better e.t. than me.
Made a 4 speed sound like an automatic & turn on the win light 80-90% of the time.
She ... of course ... did most of the strip driving back in the 70's, while me & a helper did pit duty.
Nowdays, she still gets a grin on her face & abuses the 5 speed & redline in our street car at times.

My elky and my girl
