Wife says I'm having an affair with Elise!

OK, I screwed up. When I changed my iPhone wall paper from our honeymoon in Venice to a frontal view of my Elise she knew I was having an affair!

I'm spending way too much time driving, washing and working on her. Worst of all reading all the incredible tidbits about maintenance, mods and the like on the Elise!

Any of you run into this?

Now when she asks when are you going to be home it's always in about an hour. The time it takes me to make the mountain loop!

I get the your obsessed and you put it in a field again. Cracks in the clam add character and I know how it feels just before it all goes wrong

It was built to drive to the edge...

My answer to my wife accusing me of paying more attention to the cars than her is, "What would rather have me do, hang out that bar or strip club or in the garage working on the cars?"

End of story... no more complaints... she likes the cars now...

Cheers,
Kiyoshi

the wife

My wife is convinced I'd leave her for a car before another woman. I do tire (gearhead humor) of the "you'd rather spend time with your car than me" comments. Unfortunately, I've not yet come up with a response that would convince her otherwise! In her defense, though, she knew I was into cars before we married (19 years ago!) and has been (for the most part) supportive of the addiction.

I get the same line. She was pissed when I got rod of the Stingray. It say since the day I got the Elise. But she loves sitting in the passenger seat of the Elise. She calls it my girlfriend. Could be worse...
