Took me about a year to talk my wife into the car. But she was excited to help pick out the stripes and things like that. Luckily her dad is a big car guy and Chevy guy.
She does not get the other mods like suspension and performance. I get the "why do you NEED that if your not racing people" hmm. maybe you guys can help with some good answers to that one, lol.
I discuss most mods with her but some come in under the radar

However she knows that between my job, our business and our 3 kids. the only "alone" time I get is driving and that is time I want to enjoy.

Wifey doesnt have a problem with me modding (within reason). She has actually approached me with dome ideas. I love it.

Solved this problem...
I bought a 2011 SIM, started modding....
I heard , with pouty lips mind you, "I'll never have a Camaro"
Meaning she always wanted 1 but I got it first..
So I got her one for her Birthday last year 2012 IBM.....Her car, her mod/stripe/wheel ideas.....
I think it was a score for us both!

I show her ideas for new rims, spoilers, rockers, etc and she says it doesn't get it. Those changes don't do anything for her. However, she did buy me a ZL1 spoiler for Christmas because I asked for it not because she liked it. Also my first mod was her idea; tinted windows. Did she get the heritage grill, performance mufflers, color-matched interior thread or gill stripes??? No. She does like seeing me work on and enjoy my car as long as I don't completely siphon our bank account. My wife controls the household money. I save up for my mods.

Just wait until she sees the ZL1 rockers get delivered this evening, followed by some 1LE brake upgrades and then a Nitrous kit. She is gonna flip!!! Guess I need to take her out on a date, LOL.
Mine lost it when the giant flowmaster box arrived last summer. She actually said what's this and gae me a nasty look. I said what does the box say? E x h a u s t haha

After I put it on she said it did sound better

Haha...she would totally go for that. She is a freak for Chick-fila!!! She actually did not give me any grief when the rockers arrived this evening.
