What sort of goodies in nylon stockings??
Glad to hear you're OK. I have had a couple of rounds of MRSA, not good!!
Me, I received a Nylint repro tether car, a couple of gift certificates to a local bookstore and a Pin Up calnedar of Gil Elvgren. Oh, and had both my boys here for tea last night.
A brand new Dewalt 20 volt cordless drill and impact, a Dewalt 1/2 drive drill motor. My brother got me a FREEKIN GO PRO CAMERA!!!! and my ex got me a bottle of Gentleman Jack and a tow car.
I got my brother a completly rebuilt 8ba for his merc. He had no clue. Neighbor kid got a 4-71 blown 350 from his old man. Its nice to have a performance/machine shop as a neighbor.
Santa was Good to me .....
This (metal) scale model...
And this (metal) scale model, so many different build options....
And a cool old coin opperated "Pub" pool table....
I had the honours of playing Santa at our family party.
Here's a pic of my Aunt, She's a 1930 Model , With my '31....
Merry Christmas to you all.....And a Safe New Year.
Bonneville Avanti Dan..... I READ this entire thread and kept up with all of the posts people have made...... yours is the "greatest gift of all".....
So often we get so tied up & distracted by so many other things we completely forget how precious each breath we take "is a gift" ..... and every breath, from the 1st one we take until the last one we make is "gift from God".
Dan... even though we have never met NOR have I ever even read any of your previous posts your "good news" has lifted my "Christmas spirit".
Now get out in that garage & get to work with a BIG SMILE on your face!!!!
I got a hydrulic roller cam & roller lifters for the Cadillac in my Willys, perfect !!!
Oh and a christmass sweater
WoW!!!! Such a touching post..... gave me "goose bumps" thinking about it. Little things like that "letter to Santa" are special things that come from the heart..... you are "blessed".
Something I gotta ask..... What scale is that????.... And who makes those????
Link to a website????... Thanks!...
Santa brought me the new 2013 H.A.M.B. calendar!!!
got to spend time with my daughter...........thank you Santa
What was his name, and how old was he.
Good to see that everyone had a good holiday. Family, health, friends and gifts, it just doesn't get any better than that fellas.
Now the hope that the new year brings as much as the end of this one has.
Socks, slippers, cashews, they must be saying I'm old and nuts?
Santa came early this year with a set of Baron Racing heads for my Ford Flathead!
I haven't looked yet.....
Got the AutoWorld "John Force" drag race slot car track! Thanks Santa!!
I must be the only person who loves getting socks for christmas. saves me buying them, not like im ever going to stop needing them.
Well i had the family over got to help Santa out at 2 or 3 homes.
And got a pic of Santa (me) and my Mom and Dad. dad turned 90 Dec 7 and Mom is 86
He still drives so look out. Marry Christmas
My wife made me this really neat quilt and a 30's rear-view mirror with a clock in it.
My kids went together and shocked the living tar out of me with a Canon EOS Rebel T3i camera and kit. I think they both expect sunrise or sunset photos next year.
That will come in real handy at the car shows in the future too. And leave money in the kitty for car parts as I was looking at getting a better camera in the next few months.
My son and his girlfriend fixed Christmas dinner.
My wife got me a R&C mag subscription, some hotrod t-shirts, but my mom really killed it with the Jalopy Journal print version book (I'm trying not to read it all in one day) the calipers pads and rotors for my disc conversion, and a set of aerostar springs. My brother gave me his usual 5gal bucket of supplies (duct/ecectrical tape, PB blaster, degreaser, drill bits, nut/screw bits, JB weld, etc.). And I got some money for the wiring harness I'm gonna build. My dad got me 250.00 worth of gift cert. to Mid-Ohio race track so I can but tickets to vintage road races, bike races, and some other good stuff!
Best gift of all was the day with the whole family drinking and eating!
Wife got me a mig welder. Wasn't a brand new one but one I kept borrowing from a pal. She told him that since I used it more than him he should just sell it to her. Good wife!
a stack of new car magazines for the restroom, my happy place.
Hypertherm plasma cutter and a sweet little giant shop table were gifts to myself. Wife got me a TP tools gift card and a sweet dynabrade belt sander. This sander is incredible
You're not the only one who loves socks...
ask any member of the Sock F*ckers club.
The Bearded guy brought me the reissue of the AMT 1962 Thunderbird model. Going to build (as close as I can!) a replica of my Dad's old '63 'Bird.
A peaceful, loving day with my wife and kids...I am blessed! Plus, my pal Django gave me the latest '36 T-shirt he designed and a damn cool poster and JR got me a bitchin' new lid...thanks, guys!
Check out our Hot Rod and my Dad's story behind it on page 25.
Girl freind got me insulation for the shop. Maybe shes trying to get me out of the house.
A chop saw, drill press, tube bender, press, brake and a new tool box. Next year I'll ask Santa the ability to use them!
I've been blessed with a gorgeous body Danny!!!!
