Fiance loves his cars. He has a 91 Eagle Talon. And HAD a 91 Miata, just got totalled by a hit and run. 

And we aren’t doing those into the wedding, we’re doing baseball πŸ™‚

My Fiance is a car lover as well! Total Ford family I am marrying into.  His dad has 3 older Mach1 mustangs and my Fiance works for Ford so that works well.  I thought maybe of inforporating it into a grooms cake or something but not too sure what yet?

My hubs is. We just sold his ’03 Corvette last year when we built our home and started trying for a baby. It was just sitting more than normal bc it’s not allowed to see certain weather conditions and it was time to move on. It was kinda sad bc he bought it the week we met and our first date was in that car. He’ll have another one someday I’m sure of it. He had a ’67 Camaro convertible in high school that I would love to get back bc thats my favorite car! I’m a sucker for muscle cars. πŸ™‚ He also had a ’72 Corvette and ’86 Corvette. Right now he’s trying to convince me to buy his friends ’50s Chevy truck to rebuild. I just laugh bc I’m not sure where we would put it and when he would actually work on it! Boys and their projects…

@miss.nicole: umm my husband’s obsession with his car concerns me. His license plates says “NoahsZ” becuase he has a 350Z… I don’t get it.

Unfortunately my SO is a mechanic so he works/lives/breathes cars and bikes! He’s even built his own racing car below (hopefully this will be our wedding car – so not all bad! Even though it is extremely fast! πŸ˜‰ – and currently doing up a 70’s hot rod!

I knew this when I met him so theres no way I could, or would change him!

@gogogiraffes: My Fiance has a 91 Eagle Talon too! That car and his motorcycle are like his children. 

Fiance is a mechanic as well and loves all things cares. I grew up around cars because my father is also a mechanic. I guess it was destined to be.

My Fiance LOVES his Jeeps. I got one after I met him and now we work on them together. All he wants to do is talk about Jeeps and buy $300-1,000 parts for his Jeep *headsmack*

yes my husband is absolutely into cars and his knowledge and ability to work on them is extremely impressive (he’s not a mechanic btw).

i’ve mentioned it before in the splurge thread but i guess it’s more appropriate here.

we dropped a toyota supra twin turbo 2JZ engine in a lexus gs 300.  it’s an older model one (94) but it’s still a beautiful car and we’re literally gutting it, inside and out.  the engine part is completely done…looks like a show car engine.  now we’re focusing on all the aesthetics.  it’s getting a brand new paint job, we’re having new floor carpeting put in and the leather seats redone. and of course some nice sporty rims which we already have and they’re black but i want them painted buffed silver. the black is too juvenile to me, i want it to have a sophisticated look, not a street look.

i’m very excited, can’t wait for it to be done. it’s going to be my every day car:)

we definitely love our cars.  he’s more into the fast and furious type of crap and he’s gotten me to appreciate it a little, but my knowledge is mostly higher end car stats.  porsche 911 turbo is my dream car and i will buy myself one some day:)  and i intend on having a personalized license plate on the back that says “I BOT IT” so people don’t think i’m some rich housewife driving a car around that my husband bought me.  /feminist lol

@nontraditionalmiami: as soon as I read this, Fiance was like. THAT is what I want.

 

Edit: I have a 2011 Jetta TDI, was a sedan, now I have a wagon, and I want to get my plate saying, <3 my VAG. (vag = volkswagen auto group)

@gogogiraffes:  πŸ™‚  it is pretty badass.  at first i wasn’t crazy about the idea but then i started reading up on the aristos and seeing a lot of youtube videos of them and how nice the older gs models look when restored, and agreed to the project.
