Not telling the wife

Found a good parts truck on CL. It's missing front clip, but everything else looks to be in excellent shape.

I bought a similar truck a few years ago, but didn't get everything I wanted off of it. I lost my storage lot.

How do I purchase it, tow it home, and not tell the wife?

While that may be good advice, she'll know something is up.

If I didn't have a whole stack of vinyl siding in the shed, I could just roll it in there for the time being.

Which means, I gotta get that stuff put on the house!!!

Just reminder her of all the money you are saving by doing all of the house construction yourself.

I lucked out with my wife, as long as the bills are paid, she doesn't even blink an eye if something new shows up at the shop.
Last week I drug home a 65 one ton.

If you need a place to store it, we have plenty of room and you will not beat the price (free in the field).
Location may hurt you though.

When I got the 54 she was close to divorce saying I sneaked it in, not so. Then 21 years later she did divorce me but the settlement allowed me to do all the work on the truck and whole lot more kinda backfired on her. Just a thought.

Asking for forgiveness is always better than asking for permission when dealing with issues marital in nature.
Marriage is like raising a baby bird, then letting it fly away. If it comes back, all is well. If it does not, go find you another that smells nicer, isn't so fat, and doesn't snore as much.
Also, to maintain a sound marriage, it is crucial for the man to screw up pretty good about every two months. For the 60 days following that episode, the wife will be focused on your most recent big "misunderstanding", and stop nitpicking you about every little inconsequential issue.
You are welcome.

My wife says....its your money! If she ever finds out I'm pinching it off her retirement I could be walking to the next Stovebolt event. Hmmm, maybe I better check mine!!!

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.

I did recently buy a 16' trailer. Dragging home another 'bolt might be pushing my luck.

I'm with Carl.
To take there mind off the firetruck you may have bought a few months ago, do something even more fun and buy a 65 one ton like I did last week.
May get a 49 next weekend.

She told me years ago, that I was making our land look like a junk yard.
All I could say and I said it is, "I can only dream".
Well, I'm still working on it.
