Will you accept payment by installments over, say, 20 years!?
You've got it all wrong, WayneM
Get rid of the wife!
What's more - it will work out cheaper in the long run. ;-)

Believe me, I am giving serious consideration to selling her !!(She also made me sell by Dodge Viper GTS!!)

Will you accept payment by installments? ;-)
...for WayneM's Viggen or his wife? ;-)

Depends which is most affordable! (Probably the Viggen if my experiences are anything to go by)

WayneM, a roll of gaffa tape and handcuffs works wonders.......for stopping the nagging wife that is, or you could try a pair of ear plugs.
Forced to sell a Viper and now a Viggen, seems you chose well with the cars, but not so well with the wife. OK, so a Viper is not the most practical car you could own in the UK, but what can she possibly object to owning a Viggen? A more practical, safe, comfortable form of transport it would be hard to find.
I'm lucky, at least my missus likes my toys.....(ooh err!!) To put it more correctly she likes the comfy heated seats in the Aero, (but not the Scarabe Green colour), and she likes the noise my Sunbeam-Lotus and Ducati make.

I am afraid that I can now sympathise with your missus.
You appear to have a nipper and that appears to be a three door! ALMOST 100% practical but not quite. Are you gonna swap it for a 5 door aero? Makes sense to me.
