Worst Wife/Girlfriend response to Camaro

So, my girlfriend is getting out of control with her comments about my Camaro addiction. Recently she said, "You spend more on the car than me!" What's your horror story??

Mine thinks I pamper it too much. Even though we're BOTH paying for it (historical fact: she suggested we buy a hardtop then instead of wait for a 'vert), she says that I'm too particular about the car on it should only be driven on nice days, parking it far away from the mall instead of up close, etc. But it's just that ~I~ am the one that has to wash and detail the car. Heck, if SHE would just once get out there after driving a car in the rain and clean it up, I'd not be so protective of weather conditions. But, she's a much better cook than me. So I don't make a big deal out of it, otherwise she might poison the food.

Every time the Camaro gets mentioned, it's blah blah blah 'American car' this, and blah blah blah Crudweiser and mullets that.

That's what happens when you've been together with an Audi snob for 7 years.

It gets really quiet, though, when I bring up the fact that the new S4 in our garage grenaded a water pump at 9k miles and had to be towed 15 miles to the dealer.

Well, unless you have bought your gf a $25k gift, then I'd have to agree with her.

My wife has been overly positive about my Camaro. The only negative thing she said was when I was all angry about ABM being discontinued. She said "don't get it if you don't really want it" That scared me straight. I knew I had to be positive or else she wouldn't want me to get it. And trust me, I love my SW car now that I have it!

I probably talk about something car-related on a daily basis with her. She really isn't into cars at all, but she is definitely supportive about my habit. I am lucky.

Well I guess you're right, it just hurt because I try so hard with her. But, she talked so much crap about my last car being junky and old. Now that I have a sweet ride she is mad because I care for it too much. I can never win.

Well when My wife saw the camaro that I chose her first response was " I thought you would pick something more luxury? That looks like a single guys car. " to which I replied heellll yeeaahh! She quickly informed me I would be installing tinted windows. It's still not tinted. Nowadays she just makes fun of me when I wanna go drive around with a bunch of other 5gens. She calls us nerd clubs. Lol

I can't relate here.

Bonnie WANT's me to spend money on mine if I have it. Becasue I know that for every dollar I spend, she gets to spend also.

So I'm left not spending any money.

So I'd have to spend it without her knowing, which won't happen. lol

I have to disclose, unless I want my ass kicked.

I guess I'm another one of the lucky ones. My wifes only complaint is that she wants a vert. There is know way to have two 5th gens, but I have been talking to her about getting an 02 SS vert . Trying to find one cammed, etc.



LMAO Randy

I am fortunate to not have that issue. My wife was the one that bought me the car. Although she does think that I spend too much time on here. I told her that I needed some sort of hobby and she doesn't say much in response to that.

Sorry to hear that man. I don't have a horror story. In fact 180 from it.

We were cruising downtown for lunch, it was really quiet (Camry hybrid runs like a ghost on electric) when all of a sudden she YELLS , "Camaro, Camaro, Camaro!".

I manage to get my wits about me in time to make the turn into the dealer and we go to check it out. She is out of the car before I even get completely stopped and in the shiny new red 2LT before I can even got out of our car.

I walk up all calm and collected and ask nonchalantly, "So, what do you think?".

Her reply?

"WE GOTTA GET ONE OF THESE!!"

Been like that ever since, even with my mod-itis....

But then again she has been with me for over 30 years and is used to my "issues"....

life lesson right there. But seriously, she complained about your last car and now your new one. She sounds high maintenance. Sorry! Good luck! She's got some very particular standards and expectations from you. I hope you can fit into her box.

I don't worry about it, my husband doesn't care, he said get it if you can afford it, he helped me with the down payment but I make the monthly payments and buy what I want for it. He spends his money on other things like guns that is his hobby of choice right now. Neither one of us keeps track of how much the other spends on frivolous things, like as I said as long as the bills get paid....My husband is great about it and supports me in my decisions.

Well, it kind of is. Like your 16 again and trying to be as cool as you can. The reasons have changed a bit, but it's the same thing.

But I don't care. It's like I've said before:

A car is a boys first step toward manhood and a mans last hold on boyhood"

Uh........ mine can spend as much as me easily. Hers is on her training and competitions. Outfits, travel, trainer, etc.......... It ads up for sure.
