As far as I know outside of the Hurst Competition Plus shifter my dad gave me for the 48 one year for my birthday and a set of valve covers my wife bought for me from the store I worked in and then charged to my accout I have never received or wanted a hot rod part for my birthday or Christmas and don't care to get any. Tools are cool though and I have received a number of tools over the years. W Reading down though the lines I see that I wasn't the only one who grew up in a family where money was tight. When I was young I asked for a Red Ryder BB gun one year and ended up getting the plastic stock Daisy bb gun that cost about a third of the Red Ryder model. It was years before I figured out that I probably got an extra present that year because dad bought the cheaper model. A few years ago my son bought me a Red Ryder BB gun for Christmas because I always put it on the Christmas list to give my wife and kids. When my parents divorced when I was nine my sister and I never knew what dad might be able to or wanted to spend on Christmas for each of us so we got in the Sears Christmas catalog and wrote out lists with item, item number and price ranging from very low to something like a new bike with all the bells and whistles so he could pick though it and come up something that worked all the way around. I think it took him a bit to figure out that this was a list to choose from and that we really didn't want the whole list at one time.
