Ouch..yeah we don't have separate accounts. We've had a joint account since before we got married, not long after she first moved in with me many moons ago. What's hers is hers, and what's mine is hers....It's worked out pretty well for us, anyway.

Heck, she's even the executrix of my mom's estate when that day comes in the future.

SOOOO, I had BETTER make it work, huh?

Accounts? I never thought of that. I just figured that she spent every dime I ever made!

The GT-500 axlebacks, for starters. After that, who knows. My orginal plan has always been to save up and get the second Mustang later this year, but its looking less and less likely that will happen. I definitely want to get the second one by the end of the 14 MY because the 15 will be a whole different car and who knows what that will be, or if it will even be affordable for us average Joes anymore. SO, if we don't get the second Mustang, then this one will start to be modded up. I just really don't have a plan for that right now, but I am thinking probably a Bama tune, CAI, and maybe even a blower down the road (all after the warranty expires).

Except for the stock exhaust, I am really happy with this car. I really feel like Ford got it right-but, as you know, there is ALWAYS room for more horsepower

What YOU need is a gear. RADR LUV put 3.73's in his auto and his car takes off like the Space Shuttle on the way to orbit....

Yeah, but one of you could easily have blown a front tire, lost control and the taxpayers would be paying the bill to scrape your destroyed vehicle and dead carcass(es) off the road!

...I mean... cool run! That's my kinda honey! :kooky:

:hihi: Glad a few folks dare to have fun out there!

We are pretty much the same. Moved in together within 3 months, made a joint checking account. Almost ten years later its still working out. Although Im the one that controls the checkbook. And she loves to take my Mustang to work. And Im jealous when she does. She gets to drive 30 miles, I get to drive 5.
