Mine loves muscle cars and has no idea how they work. I find it easy to cause her to lose interest in the technical side and just approve the funds.

The shit I tell my wife .... Se thinks most of the mods are for "safety". She believes my tuner does most of the work free because I am on his web site. She thinks I am contractually obligated to go to the track. She thinks the car is total lemon, everything breaks, because after all, who would rip out perfectly good parts and pay good money for different ones. Lol.

Old cars are fun. We're doing a 1960 Willy's FC-150 right now. It was in horrible shape. I think we've about got through the body repairs though. Now I need to put the old L134 four banger back together and get her fired up. Good stuff.
