I'm not going to get into details, but she definitely got herself at the top of the naughty list this year
I got a 1963 Thunderbird model car. Its from 1963 Ford dealership Model.
My girlfriend got me a 1949 Mercury "special Edition " Revell 1:25 model
Only carsy thing was a gift certificate to the parts store (always the right color and size). Some cool 50's/60's stuff for the man cave.
Hope everyone here has a safe and sane Christmas day!
Carefully with that question. I remember being in the barber shop shortly after Christmas many years ago. A gentleman walked in an sat down, the barber looked over and asked
"Mr Earl what did you get for Christmas"? Mr Earl replied, "a new shirt and a piece of tail, and they were both too big". I am glad the barber wasn't cutting my hair at the time.
Man cave stuff and Parts for roadster from the list I made
Pair of "barn find" 35 Ford wheels!
289 Intake with three demon carbs and air cleaner. Sweeeeeeeeeettttt!!!!!!!!
mopar parts and a vintage 30" valvoline sign
We got a Christmas Present that won't get here until March 15th..... twin grand babies (girls)..... actually NOT here in PA..... but in L.A.
But as a "stocking stuffer".... we will be traveling to see them in L.A. at the same time as "Hot Rod Magazine's" 65th Anniversary Show at the Fairplex in Pomona in March.
Merry Christmas to ALL!!!!!
A bunch of For Sale signs. Hmmmmmmmmm.
It appears once more that Santa is NOT a car guy, as represented by T shirts, socks, and other clothing items. But at least he gave me a nice big propane smoker to enjoy some BBQ next year!
But I figured he'd let me down, so I bought myself several car presents just before Christmas!
A 36 three window tee shirt - too nice to wear.
I am too old for Santa to bring me stuff but I got the best gift I could have....all three of my kids came over to eat and see their old man.
I got a big load of sticks and coal,,,,,,,,,,. (sigh)
But, on the 'bright side',,,,,,,,,,,,. I can burn all that in the fireplace for HEAT!
Got the "East VS. West Showdown" book and haven't put it down since I opened it.
vintage porkpie hat from mybabyjoe and a assisited sog folder,nice!!
Nothing car related, but I learned a new phrase, "whistle-head". LOL-thanks Beanner, Merry Christmas, to you and to all.
A shop manual and an owner's manual for the '50 F1 that I'm working on. Plus the usual of a package of Oreo cookies. My wife also got me a new red, hooded sweat shirt to replace the one I've been wearing for 20 or so years.....she hates it when I put it on, but it is sooooo comfortable.
Money and this will go into new tires for my 50 merc...
We got to watch my nieces children open their christmas presents via skype!! That was a great gift from Santa!!
Pat Ganahl's new Lost Hot Rods 2 book - another great addition to the bookshelf!
It's not here yet but i wasn't expecting it this soon because i ordered it myself on friday. i had a special in my email from oldcars weekly, so i ordered their model t book. I figured i will buy myself a christmas present this year.

I got a VERY nice Chevrolet clock for the garage. Most important, we are all home together, safe and healthy. That's the best gift of all. Todd
