Steve, I think under estimate my wife.

Remember she helped fund the GT6.

Ahh so you use "married guy math" as well.
If your wife is working then everything you buy is half price because your wife pays half the bills.  There is no such thing as married woman math.

So all you have to do is get her excited about being part owner of a TR4 racecar.  
How hard can that be?

Is the garage heated?


Narrabri, NSW, Australia

Remember, it's not a bodge if no one finds out!

1969 Herald 13/60 (Signal Red). Built as CKD in New Zealand, imported to Australia in 2008.
1972 US-spec GT6 Mk3 (Green). Nearly finished, with 2.6L, EFI, a Supra 5-speed gearbox and Subaru diff.

Disable the furnace in the house.....she'll want you back in bed pretty quick.  

I've got 5 garages to hide in from my wife and 2 daughters.

In all serious though I can see a huge pile of resistance to the racecar idea.  First there's the financial cost.....second is the time cost that a race car will require of your time.  She knows what is is like when you're working on a car from her experience with the GT6......and thrid.....she might have a certain fear of a racecar crash and you being disabled......or killed.

These fears might not be 100% rational......but I'm sure these are running through the back of her mind.

What has she said about the racecar idea?

Time to move.  My last house had a single car garage.  When my wife said she wanted to move I insisted on a4 car garage....even if we had to build a 2 car garage in the backyard.  We found a house wiht a 5 car garage.  I can park all 7 of our car as well as my sportbike in our garages.  Luckily most of them are small cars.

1970 MG Midget  (needs full restoration)
1971 Opel GT   (needs full restoration)
1973 Triumph GT6   (needs full restoration)
1985 Toyota Supra  Low mileage stock
1990 928 GT  Low mileage stock
1992 Tercel  Low mileage stock....wife's car
1992 Toyota Previa   Kid transport

1985 Honda Interceptor

You need to move my friend.  

Of course if you move.....you'll never be able to aford the TR4 for years.....then again you could put a line of credit on your new house and finance the TR4 that way.
Come on...you know you want to.

you need a bigger house/garage?

can't believe you're thinking of selling - imagine 20 years from now telling the story of your gearbox going bang (a great story) to your kids and not being able to tell it whilst driving the same car? It's like the Mastercard adverts (oh, I've just figured out what those bastards are doing in those adverts!) Anyway. It's priceless.

Well I think it's safe to say he won't sell it.  I've never understood this idea of selling one car to buy another.  Sure I can understand it for a junker daily driver.......but not a car you have poured your soul into.  Nope.....those cars get given to your kids or sold by your widow after you die.

Wanna see what's got my head spinning...

Google's quality is not super, but at least its full length.

A great video and a very enjoyable 45 minutes......ahhhhh the exhaust sounds!!!  But it looked much like a brisk Sunday drive in the country with some friends.  Did you actually get in any track time?

Friends in race cars.

The camera was in the wrong spot, it did not capture the speed we were doing. Should have been lower.

I did a parade lap. Nothing special.

I think it was pretty special.  I was very impressed by the exhaust sound of the car you were in.  Was it a TR4 or a TR250?  It sounded excellent.
