I drove my first car for 20 years...bought for $500 dollars in the middle of High School. So, I wanted my first new car to really count because I knew I would drive it for two decades (or longer). When I saw the Camaro Concept...I knew that was going to be my first new car.

My wife asked, "Why not a KIA, or a Mazda." My reply, "I'm 35 years old. I just got back from my third tour in Iraq. I've driven the same car for twenty years. I havent had a car payment in twenty years. I am getting a Camaro with everything I want...end of story." Well, she finally understood and she really was happy for me. No need for quid pro quo.

My 2010 Camaro SS was perfect for my first new car. I love it!

Since I bought this car she has gotten a fully loaded crew cab Silverado and identical twin baby girls. On a side note she put 10k down for me on this car as gift for proposing to her with a 3ct Emerald cut diamond engagement ring (it was her dream ring).

Cooking lessons. B@#$'s love cooking lessons.


J/k! I've never had that problem, my 'ol lady sees it as our vehicle rather than mine. Even though she knows there's things she can and can't do around/in the vehicle. She knows it's my money that pays for it, so she basically doesn't get a say in what happens to the car. She just requests a little more attention than I give the car. Which isn't a big problem since I don't have $$ to spend on it after taking care of some much needed repairs to the house.

Mine said she wanted her Acura painted (clearcoat was failing) and a trip to Australia next year... The Acura is in the shop right now... and I did buy her a iPhone 5S! I also have to put a better stereo in her car as well. Took me 2 years but I wore her down ;-)

A pannini press so she can make me fancy sammiches.

Actually, we trade off on cars. She got her car, so I got mine two years later (last year). In a couple years, it'll be time for her to get a new one. A few years after that, it'll be my turn again.
