Do you want to get rid of your rides or is your wife "MAKING" you get rid of them?
Some of the ones that I had yes but the truck I wasnt trying to sell it just happened. I put it on the mobile dyno and almost launched it off the trailer when the guy hit nos(nitrious) to check total hp and torque at wheels and broke the straps. The guy that bought it from me was waiting in my parking spot. And asked me how much I wanted to sell it for. I told him if he beat the appraisal from the insurance company he could have it.
He called me 2 days later and bought it. He beat my appraisal by $5500. I said to come and get it. Because I never thought he was calling me back and the check paid half of my morgage.

You said your wife made you get rid of two of your cars because she didn't like having to pay insurance on six. Along with my wifes ride we have five vevicles and a camper.
Moral of the story is my wife doesn't MAKE me sell any of my cars.

It was mainly the insurance costs but it was a little bit that we just didnt have to room for the cars since we live in a townhouse.

They rent storage buildings, ya know. I guess it just depends on what vehicles you had to get rid of. If you had to get rid of a classic mustang, then you could throw the wiffe out and park it in the bedroom.

Alright I guess that's OK. I am fortunate to have a long driveway. But the garage is reserved for the Stang.

$152,000 a year is quite a substantial amount of income. In fact, its almost 4 times the mean household income in the US (which many are dual incomes). Its hard for me to comprehend how insurance can even make a dent in that income...even for 6 cars.

What am I missing? What were your premiums?

One was a 76 cj5 on 35" multi colored primers and lot of mud which took me forever to clean before I sold it. She thought it looked to like a redneck vehicle but I mostly redneck so it looked fine to me. the other was a 87 escort Gt lowered w/turbo that had about 400k on it. I got when I was about 18 and I barely even drove it anymore.

But yes if she told me I had to get of the mustang I would get rid of her and park the car in the bedroom. The only reason I would get rid of the car is if I totaled it to the point it would take to much to rebuild it.

That is what my salary was when I was turning wrenches when I was younger. But when I broke my back in a car accident(wrapped my 87 mustang lx around tree at 110mph) I had to stop turning wrenches. When my back healed I tried turning wrenches again but my back hurt too much after work to the point where I did want to do anything after work and sometimes during work. So I stayed in the automotive field just a different side now Im a store manager for Merchants tire and making 3 time less what I was making when turning wrenches. Trust me I miss the money difference but I value my health more.
My wife misses it too because she didnt need to work at that time when she was in school (at that time we werent married).

My wife kinda' made me buy another car, a 68 Mustang Coupe. I was nearing the end of my resto project of a 58 Chevy truck, and my wife felt it was time for her to have a classic. There was some compromise, though. She really wanted a fastback, but I told her we couldn't afford a fastback. The coupe is a mild restoration project (as compared to the fastback that Thumpin' has). Just finished rebuilding the suspension and changing the brake fluid. Now I still need to repair the cowl (fair condition), and have some new panels welded into the floor pan where it's rusted through. Then I can finish the interior and get it painted. Once it's done, my wife will probably be ready to sell it and have me move on to another project.
