I find it funny actually because this is probably the ONLY place they can get away with saying what they are saying LOL! But I'm with you it seems as though there are a lot of "women bashers" on here but then again Iv'e dealt with it my whole life trying to work in a "man's world" selling auto parts and trying to be a mechanic. That's ok though I don't let it bother me I just keep reading and posting like everybody else but one thing is for sure you will NEVER see me bash my man on this or any other forum because I actually LOVE him and want to be with him. Apparently there are some men on here that aren't happy with the people they are with and don't know how to remedy that, it's a shame.

I am always reluctant to mention the bashing when I see it. I know sometimes it is meant as a joke (a bad joke, but still a joke).

I also live in a "man's world." I am geologist by profession which is a very male-dominated field. I have to accomplish twice as much to receive half the recognition, so maybe I do resent the bashing a bit more than some women do.

Thanks for that. I really love these forums. I've learned a lot about cars from folks here. I've also met some cool guys and gals.

I'm very fortunate to have a husband who totally supports my Camaro habit. He is not interested in cars at all (except to get him from point A to point B), but he thinks it's great that I am.

My bf said he's just keeping me around so he can drive my car when I get it.

Sadly, I would not be getting it if my husband was still alive. I gave up my car (especially Camaros) obsession when we got married because he didn't think cars were anything more than to get you from one place to another and forget going to car shows... But now I have that part of me back.

She doesn't like the "rough gearing" (She has a nice rack and doesn't know any better so I blame the jerky acceleration on the car) When I am at about 4000 RPMs everything she says sounds like "Wa-waa-whaaan" ala Charlie Brown's Teacher. I tell her I love her too and shift to 4th...

If your wife/girlfriend was in the kitchen where she belonged you wouldnt hear her comments over the microwave.












Kidding lulz.

I don't hate women...some of my best friends are women...it's the one I married that is the problem. When this marriage is over, I promise to NEVER do it again. I may follow 'father's' advise and lease...

Or my dad's advise that I failed to heed: The HMC rule.

Hire a Hooker, a Maid and a Cook. You will eat when you want, your house will be clean...and you will *(&% when you want. And you can fire them at will.

And before the ladies of C5 think this is about female bashing, believe me, I know we guys are not a picnic either.

My wife brought up the idea to buy our Camaro. I had specific tastes for it, like wanting the SS only and it had to be black. She gave the ok to trade in our nice, comfy 2008 Accord for the Camaro 2SS, black, exactly how I wanted.

After that I was thinking in my head how quiet it was but never said anything about exhaust.... until she said it first. So now I just say it was her idea all the time.

You can give him keys to the house but never to the car.

I've never heard the HMC rule before...funny thing is that doing that would probably STILL cost less than being married!!! haha!
