My girl loves being in my vehicles, and loves the attention the car gets. She doesn't like me spending money on them right now which I understand. We are saving for a house.

My girlfriend is somewhat of a country girl, and told me she'd wet herself if I lifted it. I told her that when I got a decent job and the money that I was getting another one and she'd learn cars and how to build an engine, she looked at me and said, "Will I now?" But she'll do damn near anything as long as she gets to spend time with me. I guess you could say I'm lucky

My girl understands that it's my hobby and my money, so I'm going to do what I want, as long as it makes me happy.

My friends don't really get it, as a lot of them are not car people, or mechanically inclined at all. I always hear... "you and your damn truck, haha"

My girlfriend loves my truck, but hates when I work on it all the time. I don't get too much grief about the money I spend on it. I think she started not liking me to work on it when I had her help me lift the bed off!

YUP! I have three. My sheep, R6 and the Ranger. My last ex new were she stood with them. She hated the fact that I would spend money on parts but not take her out. Obviously she is no longer around. One of my last ex's loved lifted trucks and mudding so obviously she was ok with it but didnt like the 6 that much. At the end of the day Ill still spend more money on my "Toys" than a girl.
