The wife just called me a grumpy old man

The wife called me a grumpy old man ,because I gave her a list of Camaro rules for her and anyone who opens the doors of my Camaro.
No dogs ,cats ,or children .No smoking ,drinking or eating. No brushing or combing your hair. Do not pick your ears ,teeth ,nails or any other parts of your body LOL. Basically just sit there and enjoy the ride . Holy Cow she maybe right.

Amen to the 'no food smells", and don't forget, "pick your feet up when getting in or out" don't scuff up the scuff plates!

I think I failed everyone of your listed items with the exception of cats. Don't own one so that's the only item I pass.

I'm the same way. I've earned the right to be the way I am.... I worked hard all my life, got up early every day, listened to the same woman for almost 40 years, busted a nut to pay a mortgage......

Am I grumpy? STFU and enjoy the ride!!!!! ...

I have a convertible and the first time my wife went for a ride she coated up with sunscreen to protect herself.....she gets out of the car and I freak-sunscreen was slathered all over the brand new leather in my passenger compartment. Luckily, I saw our local Adams rep at cars and coffee the next day and he helped me clean it up with a couple of their fantastic interior cleaning products (and made a nice sale as a result).

But yeah, ANYONE getting in your Camaro is not thinking what you're thinking about.

When we first got the car I told the wife pretty much everything everyone mentioned above. She would get in the car I would say please pick up your feet when you get inside. She would say "Are you kidding me?" No I am serious! I don't want the "Scuff" plates scratched. If you think we have issues you won't understand why we are like this.

I thought the whole point of this website was that we like our cars more than people.

I like to try and keep mine nice, but at the end of the day they are just cars that can be replaced.

Same here. It's not a sterile environment. It's a sports car... made for pleasure. Just be careful with stuff like food, drinks, etc. I totally agree with the "no animals" bad though.

We have had cats in our car. I don't allow smoking, but thats it. Its a car. Its a car I really like, but its a car. One day I will sell it and buy another, and atteh 200K miles it will have on it at that point, it will not matter if it had fries eaten in it or not!

Either that or I will wad it up at a track somewhere....and the "fries" rule will apply then as well!
