All-wheel drive, turbo power and a Q-ship’s stealth.
SWMBO and I actually talked about my "child from a previous marriage" last night and came to terms. It's not only staying, but I get to spend money on it. I have to fund it by selling off my toy cars, so buy my E36 M3!
Step 1: Sell toys
Step 2: ???
Step 3: Profit!
Oh wait, no, it's Step 3: buy the HF Garage for it. After that it's time to rip out the interior and windshield and weld in some new steel. Yeah, the goal is a paint job in the spring.
Nice! Glad you worked that out with the misses and you get to keep a car you love.
I am in a similar situation, except one car was around before SWMBO was (grandfathered in) and is never leaving, and the other was approved by her. I usually raise money to work on stuff by buying and selling car parts and video games/vintage toys/doing side work, etc.
Kinda related... We were watching TV last night, and the show she was watching had a guy bring home a surprise 1965 GTO convertible on a flatbed, and the wife was none too pleased, because she wanted to sell the house. SWMBO turns to me and said "don't do that" to me.
Damn spam filter... for half a second I was hoping you were selling an M3...
Woot! Work is letting (telling) me bring in the Javelin for the actual welding up sheet metal part. Apparently we have some equipment that will do that.
I am so happy for you man, this is what you needed all along.
^ That's the meme I kept looking for.
