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 ?!?!?

I know where you're at.
Unfortunatley to to financial commitments a decent V8 is a bit far out of my budget.

But I am sulking as I very nearly bought an 86 BMW 535 on the weekend. It was so incredibaly cheap and just gorgeous to drive. Not to mention one of my favourite looking BMW's. I love old euro cars and i really, really want a new project.

The missus wants/needs a new Fu**ing fridge.

Sulk.

Funny you should mention that EL XR6.... I said, "Look it's my bloody money" and she started on about mutual decisions and how we may as well sell the house and get divorced. I must admit, for a moment I was tempted...

And a V8 will never answer you back.

Goes both ways. Boyfriend hates me talking about cars to other people. He goes mental( Huge arguments ) . I was at McDonalds once and this guy drove up next to me and said " Like you car" . Boyfriend just rolled his eyes. - He has no idea.
