Oh god, it happened, I got the "talk" and bent over like a little bitch and sold my 740 Volvo and put my E32 BMW up for sale, someone is coming to pick her up tomorrow.
I think I've lost it completely because I had to sell those fuckers for insane prices and no way in hell did I get to keep any of the money.
Exactly, I got that talk, the "Honey, they're old rusty shitboxes and you can't drive them all at once"
Sure, the Volvo was an NA slow as shit turd, but I had just restored that shit to showroom condition.
She's at her parents place right now, visiting them. I've been thinking about buying a BMW shitbox and announcing our breaking up with that BMW.
What the fuck is wrong with you.
Women. Not even once.
we told you about 3D women
we told you dog
are you the RWD cuckboi who is shitposting in the other thread?
No kids yet, but I did manage to talk myself out of buying a fucking crossover.
At first I tried to suggest keeping my BMW but that was a no go because "too thirsty and not very practical and child friendly.
Man, I started with FWD and still own a FWD car that I love to death, I prefer RWD because sik skidz cunt, but FWD is fine to, especially if you want to go straight and fast.
dump that whore you mong, its only going to get worse from here. either that or just don't be a cuck, tell her simply, no. if she doesn't want to honor what you want then she can fuck off.
I have no idea, I just got some sort of retarded strike of conscience and went full beta. I've managed to keep my prized LeBaron safe though because she doesn't know I still have it in my garage. She never goes there thankfully and I've told her that I don't own it anymore.
I've been thinking about dumping her, just don't know if I should buy an E34 or an E39.
if you're too scared to be honest with her then this won't work out.
just keep fucking her for now, pretend to give a shit what she thinks and look for someone better.
sounds cuntish for sure, but i promise you she would treat you equally shittily if she was in your shoes.
try and take a step back and look what she's turning you into.
she's basically degrading you by forcing you to become a liar.
Do it, faggot.
I could see her position if you were either burning through almost your entire paycheque trying to keep some money pit on the road, or if you were dding some two seater and didn't have space or money for something to cart the sprogs round in on top, but it doesn't sound like that's the case. A Volvo 740 is a fine family car.
I can't think of any rational reason why you should have given those up, and someone who makes you give up the things you love for no good reason doesn't belong in your life.
You won't do it, though. If you submitted to something like that, there's no way you have the spine to just kick her out.
She just wants to control you.
Respond with an ultimatum. Demand that she accept you for who you are, that you won't change your car hobby for her. If she responds with anger or a power play by threatening to leave you, she's insecure and will make your life a living hell.
You've been warned. Enjoy the rest of your life.
Owned an E32 750, 740 Volvo and a Chrysler 300C plus the LeBaron in my garage, but that's a "2 seater".
None of them were money pits really, the Volvo needed a lot of TLC but nothing too bad really and all the few parts I needed were cheap as shit.
The BMW needed a new camshaft which was like 300 bucks and I didn't buy them all at once, little by little.
>I had to sell those fuckers for insane prices and no way in hell did I get to keep any of the money.
If you're wife is making you sell your cars AND taking your money, she is a leech who is trying to take control of you and should be let go. I don't care if you meant you're buying a new car with that money. If you're buying a car SHE wants and you have no say in the matter, then just tell her no.
Is this normal for north american relationships?
How did this came to be?
Im honestly confused.
When the OP referred to it as "the talk", does it mean its popular between north american females?
Why would anyone want this?
ultimatum a shit. just play dumb and say you'll keep doing it as you like cars.
if she goes apeshit remind her she's free to leave at anytime.
either she snaps out of it or she fucks off. either way is fine.
only becomes a problem if she pretends to be okay with it and schemes against you.
What the fuck is kid friendly anyway? When I was like 7 my dad had to choose between a Honda Accord and a E36. My mom made him buy the Accord for the same bullshit reason and that made me sad as hell. Kids like cool cars, kids like when you rev the engine. I wish women would understand that.
Family safe is pigfat CUVs that you can't see out of
I drive nothing except RR cars and have had 6 successful marriages and countless girlfriends.
Unfortunately I snap oversteered all of them into trees, walls and bridges but that's besides the point - I've lived a happy and productive life and apart from the funeral costs I have never had a single issue with women.
Kids with dads that have cool cars always talk about it. Constantly. Muh dad has a chevelle and blah blah. It can be anything really, but it helps kids and their fathers have a common interest. Girls are the biggest loudmouths about this, so saying only boys like this is bullshit.
Having a cool car while kids grow up is a really good idea. It makes fathers into gods instead of like everyone else. No child likes seeing their father cucked.
Can confirm. When my brother was born years before me, my Dad had a Firebird from the 80's. Shit was awesome. Then, I came along and my dad got a Honda Accord. Now, the Honda is a good car, but the firebird was rad as fuck and just as useable, since we didn't even drive in his Accord that often, mostly in my mom's Ford Explorer. I'm still sad my dad loved the accord so much, he never got another muscle car, but now my mom wants a sports car like an mr2, now that I've left home. So I have no idea who the problem was in my family.
This is not normal or healthy. A healthy relationship doesn't force you to do things. You and your girl talk shit out and mutually arrive at a decision. Like you sell your 2 seater and buy a 4 door you like because you both want kids. Perfectly normal. She makes you sell your cars that you don't want to sell because she doesn't like them... well...
In either case, assuming OP didn't have any reason (financial, personal, etc) to sell and she forced him to sell, that's a lack of respect for what you want.
Ofc op could be lying like a massive faggot too.
my dad use to have a 944 and then he sold it after arring my mother. he had a hella cool pad until we moved to the US. the most sporty car we have is a veloster n/a and a v6 frontier
okay you're finally being honest. if you decide to fuck yourself based on the fact you think you're bad with women that's on you.
if you would rather be in a shit relationship than single then that's entirely your choice.
don't blame her. you know where you stand as she's up front with her shittiness.
ball's in your court nigger

i hope to God I dont fuck this up,
Yeah, still thinking about dumping her when she comes home and announcing it with buying the grandest shitbox available in Europe. Looked at some Dodge Aspens, one of those would be cool I guess. That or a BMW because those things are sold in droves over here.
I understand that. I am shit with them as well. But it won't stop with your cars. She will cuck you another ten times and finally divorce you when you have two little children. Shit has no future sith that grill.
It's not a great story. Just she made everything about herself and lapsed into histrionics. Like she got pissed at me when I was bedridden after a motorcycle accident for being grumpy. Or another time I said I understood now how shitty it would be to be a middle aged man on painkillers for back pain and she took that as an endorsement of her dad (whom she hated.)
We need to choose a breaking up car for OP.
Something as antisocial as possible.
A motorbike is actually perfect, at that budget
It doesn't need to be fast, just very loud
i make it clear to every boyfriend i have that i love my weed my cars and my computer and refuse to ever give those up to anyone for any reason
i also let them know my goal is to own my 6 car realistic dream garage
Nah, this kind of shit is 100% pathetic.
It's not like he had to make a split second decision and chose wrong. He went through the process of selling not one but two cars over the course of multiple days, possibly weeks. Things that had value to him as a hobby. The fact that they were shitboxes is completely irrelevant. He should have voiced this at the very least instead of caving like a manchild when mommy is yelling at him for having too many toys.
Don't kid yourself. He's never going to stand up for himself. Lost cause.
I can't even imagine how hard he gets cucked in less personal aspects of their relationship. It's probably constant. I bet every thing in the house was picked out by her. I bet she schedules everything. I bet they eat what she likes. My god.
unfortunately she sounds really controlling in general, this is just the first thing she's going to impress upon you.
at the very least, if she cannot compromise with you in getting a really sporty or fast WAGON instead of a crossover, then she isn't reasonable and doesn't view the relationship as being between equals and you should seriously consider other options
Fuck you're deluded. First, girls like me a lot. Second, it's not bitchy or negative to be a person with an actual personality and tastes instead of an accessory for someone else's life.
>tfw girlfriend's dad had 17 rusty old shitboxes
>tfw she "gets it"
>tfw never have to worry about this issue
life is good.
>tfw girlfriend drives 6-speed manual
>tfw girlfriend actually helped me buy my newest car recently, and it was something we could both appreciate
>tfw girlfriend occasionally streetraced in her shitbox back when she was a teenager
I'm sorry your girlfriend is thr worst, OP. Have a serious discussion with her on this. If she still doesn't want to work together with you and respect you as an equal, then you should dump her.
>mfw I'm marrying a woman who is excited about my future miata.
>mfw my fiance enjoys Twingos.
>mfw my fiance really doesn't give a shit about what cars I own, as long as the bills are paid.
This so much. When I grew up my parents had a 50hp Golf Mk2. I hated that econoturd to death even though it always brought us from A to B safely.
When things started looking better money wise he bought a used Mercedes SL (R107), his dream car, actually the second one he owned. He had sold his first to buy a house.
I still remember when he took me for a drive for the first tim even though I must have been like 6 years old. It was awesome. Later he sold the second when he was without a job for a year. Now he owns his third, an '81 280 SL.
Looking back, I am grateful to my dad for putting family first always, but I respect him even more for something else: He sold a car he loved if absolutely neccessary, but he never gave up on his dream car entirely.
pic is some generic R107 because I have no pics on this machine
TL;DR Do what's responsible, but don't be a cuck. Why sell your cars if you have no financial problems?
Like the biggest boat on the road.
Its not to bad at normal speeds, 20-80mph, but the turn radius at slow speeds is the worst I've experienced. I litteraly have to make 3 point turns more than half of the time, it's also a little long. Good things though, if you get the twin turbo it's pretty fast but not quick.
Life lessons, get rid of her.
Get a new woman, who understands.
My wife doesn't get cars, and is only passingly interested with firearms.
But she knows that I enjoy them and doesn't care how many I own even if she isn't all into it.
Get a new one.
totally does, seeing as how one of my Daily shitboxes is a 740.
She knows I have my tastes and lets me enjoy them.
She is a van girl herself, wants a nice panel van with an epic mural painted on it.
But the car makes a Corolla from that same year look like a sports car
It seems you want to be a try hard; most non-swede Volvo owners are like this. Really dont understand Americans and this sort of logic
Fuck that. Either you're a weak willed cuck, or she's a genuinely bad person that doesn't want you to be happy.
Because I could take care of my Volvo and drive it for the rest of my life and not need another car, not that I won't buy another car but this saves me a shit ton of money. Also million miles bro, free brand new volvo
I'm in agreement with >>14207189
You need to chill and let people like things. even if its not what you like.
Just relax, not every car needs to be the best of the best. sometimes, just being is enough to make people like them.
Honestly, I'm not sure what my next shitbox is going to be. Hopefully I find a VW Thing.
But buying a car based on a culture following?
>Because I could take care of my Volvo
You are confusing the diesel volvos with the American junk ones that drink corn jizzz
But I like Volvos but the difference is that Americans buy them because of 'memes' like
>hurrr durr volvo storng it will last million miles and it can survive crash
I feel bad for Volvo
Still a nice buy, mines only got 206k miles but the engine is strong and once I get the electrical problems sorted I hope to drive that thing to a mil in the next 15-20 years
What if, now stick with me, what if, I like volvos just because I. Like. Volvos. Not because of some non-existant culture you seem to think exists, not because HURR DURR STRONK, but because I like them. They aren't the typical european car, they have their own identity and I like that, not to mention I grew up with that. You're literally a fucking idiot.
It doesn't have to be a diesel to get to a million, there is a list of Volvo that have over a million miles and lots in the us that run on petrol. Also not saying my 240 will make it but it definitely could.
>I. Like. Volvos
More like buying it from a meme and the gf has more car sense than OP
>They aren't the typical european car
Not typical? It's the Camry of Sweden, difference is that you make it the best dam thing in the world
thats wrong the worlds highest milage volvo (p1800) is at 5 million miles. and he is still driving it. his secret? he changes the oil every 2000 miles whether the car needs it or not.
IMO you don't even need a great car
you just need drive it in a fun way to make kids like it
a 1st gen Subaru Legacy Estate with an n/a four banger isn't a very fun car but my dad made it fun by trying to rally the cunt anytime we weren't on tarmac
Is your name fucking Monsoon or something? Cut it out with saying meme so fucking much. What percentage of your vocabulary is just the word "meme"? Read a book nigga.
Are you and the bitch married? Because if so, make sure to "sell" your cars to a friend/family member before the divorce, so that she can not claim them in the divorce.
But get rid of that bitch right away, a relationship where only one is in charge, is not a healthy relationship.
And besides, if this carries on, your wife would eighter end up cheating on you, or leave you because "you are not the man she fell in love with"
You'd sell your toys to placate a woman.
You deserve neither toys or woman. She'll leave you anyway because she'll want a real man who isn't afraid to stand up for the things he wants.
>mfw I've gotten more enjoyment from my CJ7 than from any woman
When did the crossover become the image of safe family cars? Or is that just an American thing? Executive saloon cars will always be the family man's car unless he has more than 3 kids and needs a van. Sure those cars are about 25 years old but if you are broke you cannot complain.
No such thing, rather it's very common for the odos to strip gears and become inop and not counting the millage at least in 240 and 7/940s. Mine was stopped when I bought it and put many miles on before fixing it. 250k and counting; '90 245.
I hope you don't fuck it up. It's nice to see people having it all with all the shit going on.
>tfw autistic manchild
>tfw still less of a cuck than OP
My old lady is into cars and motorcycles and in 16 years of marriage, money and toys have caused ZERO fights. You choose wisely. Don't fuck it up!
I have a friend who announced his breakup to his GF by buying a BMW M3. "Bitch spending all my money, I'm buying what I want. FOR SPITE!"
Before you know it this is going to be locked on/up your dick and she will be holding the key.
You done fucked up OP.
