What Does Your Spouse Think of our Hobby?

Recommended Posts

My wife wanted a camaro when my son and I started looking at Shelbys but has since changed here mind. I was very lucky in marrying someone who has ridden her own motorcycle across the country. We are not talking a cruiser here she prefers to ride sport bikes or sport tourers and is currently riding a BMW R1150R and has been known to ride a Hayabusa in the past.

 

Now that we have the Shelby it has become hers and I do have to fight her for the keys. She says it is fast enough now so we have not been able to do anything to it but the 13 y/o and I are already making plans for next years model.

My wife is very supportive of my Shelby habit .Heck she talked me back into buying my KR when I had all but talked myself out of it. She hasn't driven it yet, but I haven't pushed it, I have asked if she wants to, but she still finds an excuse not to. When we were at the Shelby museum in Vegas, she was picking up shirts coats etc. for me to buy!. I am a lucky man.

My spouse isn't into the car thing. She only agrees to let me pursue it if what I spend is paid off in diamonds and gold. It's really going to be hard when the new SC goes on.

 

She just doesn't have a clue why people have suce a love for cars and speed. "You can only drive one at a time". "Why do you need all that power". "Your going to get a ticket like you did last year". This is what I hear everyday. Why do you think I spend so much time at Starbucks drinking coffee.

I figured it time to circle back around after starting this thread a very long time ago...

 

Wifee has long lived my car passion so much so that she is a 'car chick' now. After celebrating our 33rd anniv. together a couple months ago, we are re-aligning cars once again.

 

Sold, (as some may know) our special ordered 2007 GT500 this past May, because I was tired of being a garage queen owner. It only had 4600 on the clock! So, we waited 6 months and just added a 2001 Boxster 'S' as a psudo replacement...though we still have the BMW 135i? She (wifee) swore off any more Mustangs, as she really only liked the GT500 'cause of the SHELBY connection. However, just this past week have begun thinkin' BOSS 302, plain or SECA???? The 135 would have to go, so we are contemplating. :headscratch:

 

Anyway, as the thread states.....she thinks I'm crazy to be sure...but is humoring me, once again! :happy feet:

 

:D

" I talked to the wife and she told me that if I have the Shelby web sight on for her when she comes home from work in the morning, she will look out for me and try to buy my ticket. God I love my wife, working all night to come home and do this for me. Like I said before, she's not into the car thing, but she does what she can to support my interests/hobbies "; that was the night before the tickets for the Vegas Bash were up for sale. Well, the next morning she stayed up after being up all day, working all night, then comming home 8:30 am just to stay awake for the ticket sale to come on line. She bought my tickets after 11:30 am. She then slept till 5pm, thats correct, 5 1/2 hrs of sleep to work another 12 hr shift. She got home around 8:30 this morning. Went to bed and is working again tonight. After all this, I can honestly say she does not share my interest with the car hobbie, but don't anyone feel bad for me about that. SHE LOVES ME, not my car, and I feel like the luckiest man in the world.

i need to find a woman that is interested in cars, or if she just says "that is cute" and nothing more i'll be happy.

 

At least my parents are into it, and both of them have their own classic cars, so maybe I could get the mother to work on the future girlfriend/wife :rockon: if she doesnt understand :hysterical:

Boy oh boy is it funny to look at this post almost a year and a half later!! :hysterical:

 

Since this post, we still have the '01 Boxster 'S' but have sold the BMW 135i and now have the 2008 Dark Highland Green Bullitt and another GT500 (this one a 2008 red / black stripe coupe) both in my signature photo. The Bullitt has 7800 on the clock and the GT500 has a mere 1650 on it! But as mentioned in the last post, after selling the white '07 garage queen...I'm driving these EVERY chance I get!! :happy feet:

mine is a little different. shes all about me buying the toys, she just has issues with me playing with the toys. she pushed and to a point "made" me buy my shelby. but when it comes to mods, track days etc its a long battle. shes good with road trips but since we have had the kid thats come to a close. my car is now just a to the store and back ride. almost gets boring at times

We fight as to who will drive the car and I win most of the time. He gets the lucky job of cleaning up the car after I drive it.

I believe I said this before, but will say again to keep this thread alive. My wife supports me financially when it comes to my car, but she is 100% not a car person. She is into practicality, SUV/ minivan, you know the soccer mom type. To be honest, it would not matter if I had a new Shelby, she just does not get it, nor wants to. It does bum me out to not have that connection and that she does not go with me to car events. I do miss her! On the other hand, I get some me time so I can act like a little kid playing with his toy with out her telling me to grow up. Besides that, I do not have to share the car keys! Its a double edge sword I tell you. It is a fact that man needs 3 things in life: Sex, food, and his car. My problem is that I can never have all 3 at the same time :hysterical:
