I am a newlywed and my husband wants to build us some first gens.
So cool to see your interest...my wife if I need something just growls at me even after 20 yrs " For gods sake just go get it" or " can you leave it for next month, we have taxes, bills insurance this month" I still feel guilty lol
My wife sort of knows the basics, but she has devaloped an 'ear' that picks up anything wrong, doesnt matter what sort of engine...doesnt always know why, but always right.
Females for some reason have this fine tuned ear for engines...If they know about it.
TOTALLY wet behind the ears and possibly asking terribly dumb questions
Everyone here where wet behind the ears once, everyone has screwed up..thats why so many of the guys are so well informed and willing to pass on knowledge learnt over many decades....And Dumb questions, those are the questions stupid and gutless people are to damn scared to ask....and those who realy want to learn, ask
I do the work omn the cars, the wife has a knack of bring out a coffee...even dinner sometimes at just the right time....sits down lets me talk a problem thru, askes a few questions and some how suddenly everything becomes clear....or looks around and "what is this wire for?" often rely is snapped "nope nothing to do with it" and many times is" you know how to make me feel stupid" with a big smile lol
My wife doent enjoy the car shows, but car club runs, chatting to the guys who sort of chat her up...she gets a kick out of that, good for the sole lol...she doesnt alway enjoy the company of the other wives because often they dont want to be there...but those who do, and some have their own cars...she has a good time.
I have spent a lotof money on the cars over the years, now she want to do something...go to uni full time....she has supprted me for yrs , now her time to spend a heap of money.. a bloody big heap lol...and thats cool.
Marrage is a wonderful institution...
.just looking to see if the wife is around..nope im safe....
but like all instutions there are small problems..
like the wife and ma in law...
Got to go hear her coming lol
