Have a kid. He'll be driving in a couple of years. She won't have him driving a car older than a decade. She says no car like this until I'm retired, but by then, I think all remaining K10 Micra's will have been crushed and recycled into soda cans.
The only option I can think of is to see if my parents will let me store it at the farm. She'd still be pissed though. She's read horror stories about guys restoring classic cars and how it destroyed their marriage; she doesn't understand that this isn't an MG or classic Porsche. Fenders are only 45 euro's each, and the engine and transmission probably don't need any work.
Unless any of you have any words of wisdom that I can share with her to convince her. My son is behind me all the way, in fact, he's the one who discovered it.
In our culture obsessed with absurd excess, the Nissan Micra is my counterculture car of choice.
