I am married to a gearhead to. I met her on a car meeting and I moved in 13 days later, thats 20 years ago.
We own twelve classic cars and four classic motorbikes now. All build not bought. She know's how to handle wrenches.
My wife called me up about three years ago while I a was driving my truck, saying there's a GT40 project for sale asking can we handle it.... 14 days later she bought it...
Never had a discusion about money spend on our builds. Its allways a discussion how to tackle issues we encounter, both playing it high.
She still does the laundry and cookes... The love of a man goes through his stomach..
