I was taking the wife to a seafood place today and she turned to me and said...

"I'm not changing my pipes. This damn car is too loud and as far as I am concerned, you F#&Ked it up!!"

What??? She doesn't like my PRTs??
I guess she just doesn't get!!
LOL

I guess that is another good reason for her to keep her skinny butt out of my Z!!

Well Frank my wife says mine is already to loud and it has stock exhaust. Ha sometimes they just don't get it! We all still have a little teenager in us. And that is not a bad thing.

Hey Frank, don't you just HATE it when the little woman is right


The titanium exhaust is fine with me
I love the ripping sheet sound and metallic ringing when you get on it and then back off

MrsCorvetteSS loves mine, although she wouldn't think of "ruining" hers that way, as she wants a nice tame cruiser.

My wife has been in mine only once. She has no interest in Z06 driving style.

My wife has either hated or simply had little interest in any of my cars. Her standard sunny day pre ride comment in my prior 2000 roadster was "your not going to put the hood down are you?"

She's driven the ZO6 a couple of times and even she acknowledges "that car is fast".

Now my 11 year old son, however, is in favor of running straight pipes.

My wife was used to riding in the Mallett, low to the ground, camming at idle, Corsa tourings.......so she thinks the Z06 is nice and comfortable and very smooth! So I am OK, in fact she says she wants to drive it some...huh, I am not ok...need to nail it one time with her in it and get her scared of it!

I really feel sorry for you guys who have wives that don't share at least some of your enthusiasum for cars. The least they could do is fake it like they do that "other" thing. Frank it's cool that she doesn't like the sound of your prt's. You want yours to be
er than hers anyway.
