I consider myself pretty lucky to have a very, very understanding wife.
I've always been a car guy since I was a young kid playing with hot wheels.
My wife refers to my Camaro as our date car. I call her (wife) my co-pilot.
You Guys that have wives that support your Camaro addiction are very lucky!

My wife loves my Camaro. She wants a HW SS badly, but we're maxed out on car payments. Maybe one day.

It began when I was 12 or 13 and still have the bug at 48. My wife never understood the addiction I have until recently now she is on the search for Camaro SS or a WS6.

I am 48 when I'm not in the Camaro but when I am in it I'm 17 again.

My wife asks that question every time another package comes to the house for me. She knows without looking that it is for the Z.

Very true statement! Ps...your VR Z is gorgeous. Defintely my favorite color along with IOM. I should have opted in to buy the ZL1 from the start rather than buying my 2013 2SS/RS and planned out a Super Charged 1LE MOD with Automatic. I have the suspension in and the wheels on order. Just need the performace mods over the winter (American Racing Headers and the blower). Still wish I had the Zl1 body though!

For me it's not the Camaro addiction, it's the addiction to having an LS motor and always being able to tell those silly truck owners that think they're fast, "my LITTLE car has a bigger engine than your BIG truck."

If they try to say that I'll get stuck in the mud or something, I just let them know that it's fine because I could just get a ride back to my house and pick up the 2012 2500 Z71 to get me out of a sticky situation.

Noted for future use lol. "Honey, my engine isn't getting enough air and is causing trouble. If I get a blower (chuckle chuckle) this is make it so I don't need to buy a new engine". She's pretty non-automobile educated so I'm sure I can make this work.

The $ only affects your ability to cater to the addiction. Shortages of it do nothing to cure the addiction itself.

Having a wife who at least understands the automotive addiction . . . priceless. 43 years of direct experience speaking here.

Sure is easier to squeeze in upgrades that way . . . and sometimes the parts kind of do you a favor by breaking all by themselves.
