replace wife, with one that is automobile friendly. my "wife" as I call her, loves cars, & motorcycles almost as much as I do, I will never have paper work, or make it official. never. my house is my house, all vehicles are in my name, if she didnt like she could move out, & collect nothing, & take nothing, simple.
I have had Harleys all my life, just worked a deal out trading a old Nova for another project Harley last week, & I have several project bikes, & have a ZX11 sport bike, which is my beater, around town bike,plus a few project sport bikes, I have 4 trucks on the road that my wife cant drive, & 2 that she can. just tonight I picked up a Jeep Cherokee, & will be putting it on road soon. & she cant drive it, as she can only drive automatics, & my vehicles are stick shift, & the 2 I bought for her are in my name as well.
hmm I once was into the Neon scene, have 3 out in side yard, just got tired of them, but 2 still are road worthy, probably have 50 or so of my former vehicles between side & back yard, several muscle cars, & a bunch of VWs.
a couple of beater vehicles, & a bike is the way to go, & work your way up from there.
