The annoyed girlfriends and wives...

this thread is to talk about how annoyed our girlfriends, wives, even family are... at about how much we fantisize, marvel, stare,talk about, ask, wish, walk around saying you cant wait, tell them to come so they can see the new picture or video of it, and how they hate that you change your wallpaper on your computer every 40 seconds to a new color, how much we talk about it even though she is talking about our relationship and then she says..."are you even listening to me?" and you then reply with " but sweetheart its going to be faster and better looking then my other car!" or " but its got an LS3", or about how me do our manly things looking at picture of this car and they catch us(yea i said it).
My girlfriend, mom,sister, brother, dad, neighbour, boss, uncle, are SOO annoyed with how much i talk about THE ONE ive been threaten to be kicked out of the house, fired, left, beaten to death (almost), grounded, starved(lol)...etc
my friends hate me now...
i love this car

Don't forget sisters. I dragged my sister to the KC Auto Show. She ended up loving Bumblebee, but until then she and my girlfriend had a lot of complaints with me in common. They all revolved around cars.

Man.. speaking of girlfriends, I'm tired of dating. No ones stable around my age (18). The last one I had Emily, a month or so ago, always argued with me that Ford was better than Chevy. Also that the Mustang would kill the new Camaro any day. Just to bring this to perspective, she didn't even know if her truck was a V6 or V8.. Theres more but it just gets dumber and dumber.. :|

My wife just laughs at me when I spend all my free time looking at this site...waiting and waiting until I decide on which one I want...

I think she's trying to pull a fast one on me...She just keeps telling me just to go down and write a check for one when they first come out...my responce has always been I'll waiting until I can order the one I want. She knows that means more and more time drolling over this site.

I think she just wants me to buy one right away so i'll stop all this non-sense...

I got news for her!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

O man, my sister hates me. She can only use one computer in the house : MINE. And what am I doing for HOURS every single day instead of studying on my computer...? hehe

I keep driving my mother's husband crazy w/ car and performance questions. He was a mechanic. Eg: "Will adding an aggressive cam make my engine make that "popcorn" sound?" LOL

Oh, my mom has it the worst. Since she will be my co-signer I HAVE to make sure she is paying her bills and everything she can to get a good credit score each month!

It's sad how I'm obsessing over this car and I won't even see it in person until a year from now!

Well I dont think my girlfriend minds too much, yet. Her dad has a 78 Z/28 and a 67 SS, so she is kind of used to it. The only ones im really trying to convince are my dad (ford guy) and one of my friends (the says jeeps are better than the Camaro, BS) so on my end i think im good, for now.

My girlfriend is sick of hearing about it and if I talk to her on the phone and asks what i'm doing, I say umm umm watching tv? and shes like oh boy that camaro site again. Then I just laugh because shes right. When I went home for spring break I'd go to my comp for a minute and say I'm checking my email and my fam would know I was looking at Camaro pRon on this site and they're just like whatever. Back at school I tell my friend that I cant hangout because I gotta study on the comp, then in 5 minutes im back on Camaro5 and then he'll walk by and say "Oh so ur studying for the Camaro test now?" and I say yes, I'm going to get an A

My wife always has something to say about me being on this site...lol so I tell her "OK Ill only go on my site once a day if you will visit myspace once a day for 5 minutes." Yeah she folded like a deck of cards. She isnt that bad though. She fell in love with bumblebee in transformers, but didnt care for the preproduction 5th. She says that it dosent look the same. Yesterday I showed her a pic of the black one, and she's like "when you buy that car Its gonna be in black!"...women

That's too funny reading this thread. I'm not dating anyone currently but I wonder what the ex would have thought since she had a 89 'Camaro RS when I had first met her. So since no girlfriend, the Camaro chatter funnels to the family, friends and co-workers!

For now the family had been spared cuz they all live out of state but my friends and co-workers get bombarded with Camaro news!
I'm lucky most of my friends are into cars so they apperciate my madness for the Camaro. My co-workers know, if it's car talk, I'm gonna be all about the new Camaro. If everything goes well, I suspect to have the Camaro before the next girlfriend and then she can be #1 in my book but I'll have to say that when my Camaro isn't near... I don't want my Camaro jealous.

you know that is how my wife is.... she is interested for a while then.... gives me the ok i'm done talking about that car look. o'well.... she will be different when it's sitting in the driveway. i think a lot of it has to do with the fact we have never had a car with a bigger engine than 4 banger. so she is like power??? what the hell is power???? when i tell her 400 (plus) hp, she gives me the what does that mean look. she is getting better tho. she last longer before she gives me the look.

My wife gets annoyed because I can now relate anything that we happen to talk about to the Camaro! I also keep refering to "our" Camaro, talking about it like we're getting it today. Its great, I wonder if this is what its like to be on drugs?

You're very generous to use the word "our." My Camaro is my Camaro. No one else gets permission to drive or any form of ownership ever.

My girlfriend tells me I'm obsessed, but she also understands. She's a Mustang girl, but she has nothing but respect for the Camaro. Talk about lucky. She still thinks I spend to much time on this site, though.


"Tony, are you looking at Camaro stuff online again?"
"Ummm...no?"
"Yes you are! You're totally obsessed!"
"I'm, um, watching porn!"
"Oh, okay. At least it's different."
