    Rumor has it that an ITA Member bought a Top Fuel car......Trouble is that he has also announced that he is getting married.....

    Can anyone provide advice for this member??

    I will not post his name but maybe he can address this post and explain what he is thinking.

    Alright... Make your own punchline...

    Wht's the difference between getting married and driving a top fuel dragster?

    With a dragster, as long as you spend money on it you will continue to get those wild rides, .......... not so with marriage!:D

    What would you say if your "Financial Advisor" told you that this combination was a good investment?
    I wish this guy would come out of the "Classifieds" for just a few moments and explain this to us all.

    Well its great until u buy a new block instead of a living room set. Or a set of valve springs instead of a new dishwasher. Or a new set of heads instead of remodeling the bedroom.

    Also the "u never spend any time with me" is always a fan favorite. Or "When do i ever get to park my car in the garage?"

    Besides i think Nitro is way more fulfilling than sex! After 30 years of sex with nitro its still a good orgasm. Cant say that for marriage!

    D7958....agree 100%

    Marriage is for people that can't love inanimate objects. :)

    racing and marriage.... that period of time when the influx of $$$ helps the racing just before ALL racing ceases and half of your remaining stuff finds a new home. :)

    :mad:

    The cynicism thread on here is sad. If you have an opinion (albeit jaded) about this guys decision, maybe you should call him and not post it on a public forum.



    p.s. Maybe if you knew how to do it right, sex just might be on par with racing....

    So, poking fun isn't allowed on ITA?

    Forgive me if i'm bitter towards marriage. Perhaps if you knew my circumstances, you would understand. Feel free to call me (evidentally that is more PC)

    And as far as "doing it right". I'm not going to touch that.

    When ur married 30 years then u have the right to be cynical. This thread was all about having a little fun with the guy. Sounds like uve never been to a bachelor party???? Get a grip son! It also sounds like u dont race with nitro. Looking at it "spectating" and being intimate with it "racing with nitro" are two different animals. Sorta like women. Its a BAD drug.

    Marriage is a great thing.....then u go racing!

    The funniest day was when my wife brought the dog to the track and tied it to a lawn chair in the pit. I turn around and heres the dog running down the staging lanes to us dragging the chair still upright!

    Kris, Kris, Kris!

    You just don't get it? :rolleyes: Poking at someone in this forum is meant to be all in fun and part of our drag racing sport. Cynicism, ....... nope, this wasn't being critical of anybody, its was in fun.

    As far as the sex thing, now you are sounding like you are trying to get personal!, ............. Can't vouch for others but after 41 years of marriage, I think maybe I have figured out that our drag racing and our sex life is as exciting as it was when we were in our 20's:D .

    Lighten up! ........Race a little, .......... love a little, ...........:D

    marrage

    good luck whoever this couple is:

    after 30 years of marrage and 40 years of racing it can work (smiles).

    a friend of mine once told me that after being divorced three times that he finally figured out women ... he said there are three kinds of women ...........

    " whores, cheatin whores and if they say that they aren't they are lyin cheatin whores" he is married again to a woman who loves him and racing.

    note .... this is not intended to be politically correct

    After 30 years of marriage i agree the sex is way better then it was in our twenties.

    In all facets of our relationship, i figured out how to make her happy. But about every 28 days even that dont work.:confused:

    FYI, i was connected with the Spawn of Satan for 14 years. It sucked major ass. I should not have done it.

    My girl friend loves racing, supports me while i race, and knows i'm certifiably crazy, that racecars involve ZERO logic, and 110% love.

    She is in it for the long haul. I'm VERY lucky.

    Oh ya, my EX still hates racing (our son races his JR dragster. :) )

    lol. 14 years? mine only lasted 1! :) The funny thing is I used to just race locally and the racing pissed her off. Now it's my job to travel across the country to different races and it pisses her off because she always loved to travel. Thats the only thing that makes me smile when I cut the alimony check every month.
