    No complaints here . my wife understands all aspects of my race car and works on it .as for the old cars shes ok but likes racing and swap meets best .I can run off at the swaps and she sells my stuff . If you can satisfy your woman she just might buy you a race car some day mine did .c

    "She said it was either her or the hot rod. I sure do miss her."

    Seriously...in a good relationship both parties want the other to be happy. If that's not the case, it's probably not about the cars.

    My fiance' likes that I'm a "man" and that I'm into cars. But since I've met her and moved to the state she lives in I've just collected and stored parts for my '30 coupe. She's not against it one bit but loves that I'm always around. She knows that once we've got a house it will have a workplace/shop.

    Now, in the past, it was a different story. I had a long term girl that hated my race car, hated my motorcycle, hated greasy fingernails, and on and on. That is, until she got an $800 dollar brake quote. It was constantly an issue, no matter how much I did. Looking back, it was more of two different people rather than me being a "gearhead."

    My pops had a great bit of advice which I lived by and it served me very well. "If you want to meet a girl whom likes the same things you do, than keep doing the things you like to do." Now, I'm not advocating staying cooped up in your garage without any contact... that just won't work.

    And, what about the long term friend... she's got your number man... she knows what's up.

    So far 2 divorces, present wife is jealous, it's stupid for her to be like that. I'm not going to change.
     
  8. let her leave now before 50% of your stuff is something.
     
  9. Buy her a gift or have a THREESOME !! You pick >>>>.
     
  10. Guess I'm lucky to have married an understanding lady. She loves to shop and I hate it so since I have the. Are to mess with she's happy that I don't complain about how much time she spends shopping. I also bought her a 70 Mercedes roadster to drive on the weekends so she feels part of the car hobby when she sees my friends.

    The ex skipped town and left me with her Pontiac hearse with a 455 in it. Since I'm not blowing money on dinner, movies, and flowers, I've got scratch to throw towards project!

    Ditto, get her a car, then you spend all your time working on her car.

    I keep one in the garage, and one in the house....oil and water don't mix.

    At least she tolerates the piles in the backyard. :)

    Honestly, she's receptive of my hobby, and knows I could be sitting in a bar, but she won't come out and say it, lol.

Don't tell their wifes shit. (Bad idea) Keep them involved.

    Put a firmly mounted eccentric motor directly to the base of the seat she sits on in the hot rod. Not only will this fix the problem but she'll beg you to go for a spin.

    In my experience, some women are going to chip away at stuff like this, because that's just what some women do.

    And always remember, the day you roll over and give in to their demands to conform, they don't like you anymore. :rolleyes: :D

    Well I dont even think there are any girls my age that like hot rods, customs, or classic cars. They all like the imports that buzz around and look like airplanes with the wings on the back.
