:>Need a little advice. Just retired this year, and I feel the pull to buy a
:>vette. Thinking about a C5, maybe a Z06.
:>Owned a '65 way back in the early 70's. Wonderful car that was stolen and
:>totalled. Never got it out of my system.
:>So perhaps it's time to try again.
:>But here is the thing... although we are well off, we aren't rich and $25K
:>or more for a "dad's toy" is a tough sell to my lovely but tough-minded
:>I need some good reasons why this would be a good idea.
Why do you need any reasons? Tell your wife to look around and take
stock of all you've done for her and the family. You worked hard to
support the family, providing them with a good home, food to eat, and
a place they could always feel safe. Along the way you made a lot of
sacrifices for them. Now you'd like a " toy".
Not to sound critical but frankly I've never understood women like
your wife. If the husband is a good provider, a good husband, and
good father, not abusive, doesn't run around on you, etc.etc. LET THE
GUY HAVE A DAMN CAR!! You spent your life trying to please her I'll
bet, now it's her turn.
Good luck. :)
