Due to toddler and work hours, this past year I've had very little time to:
  • work on the car
  • drive the car except to/from work
  • track days? hahahaha no
  • sleep
I realized a while ago that realistically I won't be able to mod cars with any sort of seriousness for probably another 10-15 years. Wife doesn't like the car anyway and pretty much feels any time I spend working on it or driving it could be spent helping with the baby. Which is true and I pretty much knew this going into the whole family making process.

Any idea how much to sell the XIDAs for? They've got a few hundred street miles on them. I'd leave them in, but I'm not sure it adds to the money I'll get for the car.

Wife doesn't want me storing the car, I tried that approach and she wants to use the garage slot for parking both the daily drivers.
I think "storage" in the context of this thread means out of sight. Rent a 10x15 storage unit for $50 a month and stick that ****** in there. What you save in registration and insurance costs will easily pay for the unit.

Out of sight, out of mind, and will let you both focus on communicating better and raising the kid. As stated, doesn't really seem like the car is actually the issue. But getting it far out of the way will go a long way towards forgetting about it and prevent focusing on it.

Do those two things, plus marriage counseling, and you should be in good shape.

When's the last time you bought that bitch a purse? Bitches love purses.

I even posted a link in the Black Friday thread for special purses that bitches love that were on sale. If you didn't buy that bitch a fancy purse for Christmas you're ******* up. Coulda probably solved your problem right there.
