    Why are women like that?? my wife says something similar to that, but she says when are you going to get that out of the gararge?? I say when it's finished, why? did you have a project that requires the garage?? Unless they are car girls and like the car scene then they are oblivious of what's going on...sometimes it seems like being single was alot easier.

    Wow. Maybe my wife is farther along the brainwashing trail than I thought. She wanted me to buy that car when Mark first talked about selling it. I did think hard about it, but I was too far into my own project and too stubborn to abandon it. (Plus the fact I didn't have a pile of money sitting around doing nothing). She's not the biggest fan of my Maverick, but I can paraphrase her as saying "If you can get your Maverick to look that nice I'll stop giving you crap about it"

    I was reading in the history books somewhere that the reason that men name their cars after women is because they are so much alike. Just when you thinks everything is going along real nice POW!!! something happens to cause you hours of grief to get everything going smooth again.

    I didn't name my first 7 Mavericks, but then I got this Comet this year and it came named so I had to catch up with the other ones in the garage. Once I got used to calling them by name, with 5 projects going on simultaneously, it is actually easier to keep them straight instead of the blue car that will be yellow and the red car that is soon to be blue, the fast car, the kinda' fast car, etc.
