You guys are going at it all wrong. You want the wifes approval, not to get her involved in the this...

What I did was I delivered her some Diamond ear rings on the lid whilst she was sitting out side reading in the sun. I pulled up and bumped her chair. She looked down and it was niagra falls.. She was working me for the rings for a long time, this way I get what I want and so did she.

To this day, she is always on the lookout for more stuff. On race days I remind her, she might get that chair bump again soon Will it happen again soon? Shhhhh

I didn't read the whole thread and I'm not going to... When the wife is like "But" I'll stop her right there with a "da da da honey, remember the ear rings"?

The thread should be titled "How to keep your wife out of the hobby" because IMO this is a guy time thing on the race end This is my serenity, leave the wife's at home!

Now that is funny, but really, if your gone, who cares what she sells them for. I think the joke would be on her and someone will get an awesome deal.
