Can a Ford Affect your Marriage ?
I was just about to trade in my AUII XR6 for a beautiful big TE 50, in red, with the matching red / black leather seats. The sound of the V8 was fantastic, as they are less strict in NZ than Aus with noise levels. It really was a dream car. I had it for a day, and drove to the beach, everywhere and people were giving me the thumbs up, even a couple of tough looking dudes in a Holden Ute ! Chicks came up to me at the carpark at the beach and were saying nice car mate etc etc.
Then Mrs Sensible (my wife) steps in and ruins all the fun. No, what's wrong with your car now (nothing, but I want a big V8, always have) and why not sell the XR6 and get a Toyota station wagon (not in my life dear).
As a result, we are not speaking. I will get over my sulk quickly but I wonder how many marriages / relationships have been affected by buying Fords, or any cars for that matter.
Women really have strange priorities in my opinion. Can't she leave me to have my early mid-life crisis in peace ?!?!?
