When your spouse wants a car, get them a car. You're only asking for a specific car, so the difference between a Camaro and a similarly sized vehicle in price is marginal at best. The most you can reasonably negotiate is the sacrifice in fuel economy and the cost of performance parts. Other than that, there's no conceivable reason to have to negotiate the purchase of a nice car for you when you've probably given your spouse whatever they wanted to drive in the past.

I have my Camaro because my wife said I earned it, I was going to sell one of my trucks and she said keep the trucks and go buy the Camaro you want.....

WORKED FOR ME....

I LOVE MY WIFE, AND SHE DIDNT EVEN ASK FOR ANYTHING,

But she dosn't have to ask for anything, she just goes and buys what ever she wants anyways...

P.S. I did buy her a new dust mop
Does that count ?

1. What is the __(fill in the blank)__ item?

2. What is your reaction
..then you folks are diametrically opposed and in for a long hard road, just sayin'

She already gets whatever she wants. She would never say that to me. She knows better.

When I got my last Camaro, she got to get a dog. With this one, she made me promise that I'd (eventually) get her a Nash Metropolitain. We can't afford it right now, but we'll get it for her eventually.

She GOT her Cadillac CTS. She drives this in the summer and drives the Yukon Denali XL in the winter. She is really roughing it.
