    Wife shocked the hell out of me today !

    Wow, I could not believe what my wife did today. I guess after being married for 27 years I had seen it all. I was wrong. I had just sent my Camaro into the shop to have the T-56 upgraded for racing this year, it has been a long winter. I put the Camaro to bed in October and now it is time to get ready for a new year. Well, last year I bought the wife a 2009 Honda Accord with 19k on the clock because she wanted something to drive with better gas mileage. So over the past two week I was getting the Camaro out of mothballs and she was hinting about wanting a " Fun Car ". We have a local dealer who has a 2004 Electric Blue GTO on his lot, I had looked at it before and it was a one owner car with 50k and a super clean Carfax. I had little interest in the car since I knew I was going to put the SS back on the road soon. All my wife said was " I really like the color " That was it and that was a month ago. Never another word was said about the car. When I came home from work Saturday I saw the same Electric Blue GTO in our driveway. WTF ? She took the title for the Honda to the dealer and made an even swap for the GTO. Holy S**T. Well, We are now the proud owners of a 2002 Camaro SS and a 2004 GTO. The car is great, and has an auto trans so when I get tired of rowing the boat with my 6 speed Camaro I can relax with 350 hp and an automatic trans. And she was right about the color, Electric Blue makes a statement and looks great with the polished exhaust tips.
    How do I add this car to my profile ? I want to let everyone know we are now a two LS1 family. Middle age is not so bad.
