Wife gets "ride" in rat

My wife's very thoughtful birthday present to me yesterday was a set of new "bigs" for the back of the rat project. It was such a nice gift I thought she deserved a "ride". She doesn't know how to make very good vroom vroom noises yet...but she looks pretty good behind the wheel. Maybe I'll give this one to her when it's done.

The poor VROOM VROOM noises are a hormonal thing, I think. My husband says I sound like I'm going "BROOM BROOM". My response is to swat him with one! lol

Awesome work. That photo reminds me of an episode of TOOL TIME...

say, do you think we'll ever really get spring? We keep getting teased. Don't know about you, but I've had enough of plowing.

just add glasspacks?

Give the wife credit for trying. My ex-gf wouldn't let me teach her to drive a stickshift because "she'd break it". She needs some guts. Heck, when I had a broken leg I tried it out, my mom took too long to come out to teach me, so I tried it myself.

gf and/or car

I had my car before I met my gf. Once she seen how much money I was spending she freaked. Then one day a nice young thing ran over and said she loved my car. She said, if they do that while I'm in the car. What are they doing when I'm not around? She gave me the ultimatum, me or the car. Needless to say. I still have the car.

Then my mother got on my case. I told her I would sell it and start drinking for a hobby. I never heard any more crap from her.
