Why is it wives go nuts when you use the terms "kitchen counter" and "motor oil" in the same sentence?

LOL. Well because oil is dirty, the kitchen counter is probably white and you eat off it. :shhh:

Same reason husbands go nuts when wives use the term "oil light" and "drove home" in the same sentence. :banghead:

When I was first married, I built Flattrack racing motorcycles in the kitchen of a small apartment. One night my young wife said.."I can,t even eat with that damn thing staring at me!" Over the years there has been a lot of motor oil in the kitchen. "Mama..don't let yer babies grow up to be Gearheads!" :rolleyes2

For many years I built all of my motorcycle engines in the kitchen. If the wife/girlfriend/pain in the ass didn't like it.....The door swings both ways! Now I have a very nice shop at home and at one of my businesses so I don't have to be as firm about the house rules. But! Engines ( And vehicles ) are still king around here.

lol Well I am building a 2 1/2 car garage at the ranch this coming Spring and one of the things I got planned for it is a kitchen. You be surprise how easy parts are to work with once you heat them up in a stove. And that sink is handy to have around too. One thing for sure....in my garage....I am King!!!




BTW KC.....I noticed you got a T-bucket roadster....any chance of you showing me a photo of it? I love T-buckets but have a special place in my heart for the '23 T-buckets and when I got the cash I plan on building one with a 472 Cad V8. Something diff. ya know.

I'm in the throes of building it right now.....'23-T with a 400 S/B in it( Not gonna waste money puttin' a Furd motor in it? ) I'll try to post some pics of the process but I'm terrible about keeping photographic records of my obsessions.
