It's a family affair here with my wife and kids looking over my shoulder often. But nobody ever looks at the forum without me around. My son has logged on a couple of times but hasn't spent much time here. You can it's him because he's "Illegal behind the Wheel".
My daughter loves to ride in it. My son just says "tell me what I need to buy to get you into the 10's at the track". I keep laughing at him and tell him to wait till it stops makin me smile, then we will add parts.
The wife just frowns at it and tells me to grow up. She does not get it at all. I thought she was going to throw a party when I sold my Camaro. She went for 1 ride in that too. I got on it at about 60, lit the tires and got a little outa shape, she screemed for 10 mins. Never got it in again.
She hates my cars. I am good with that.
My wife's parents were original owners of a 1966 Mustang when she was born. That's the first car she ever rode in and she was all-in when it came time to buy our Boss. She's only driven in once which is fine but she likes riding in it and thinks it's cool.
My wife looks over my shoulder, but doesn't understand my obsession. She still says that she thought I was 'just taking a look' when I went to go get the Boss. Don't get me started on the explanation for a 3rd set of wheels/tires...
She likes the car and the experience of riding in it, but gets lost on the 'need' for parts and doing more work on the cars.
She definitely overheard the words 'dedicated race car' when I was on the phone with my brother...so at least she understood when I started talking to her about another car
