What's on your Holiday Gift list?

Post #1 by 1966Mustang » Wed Dec 02, 2015 12:50 am

During the holiday season my wife handles the donating to various local charities and causes. On ocassion she'll Voluntell me for something early on a saturday morning. Even though I usually hem and haw I dutifully go about whatever task. I am an Eagle Scout and Order of the Arrow member - There is a part of the OA oath - "...seek to preserve a cheerful spirit even in the midst of irksome tasks and weighty responsibilities, and will endeavor, so far as in my power lies, to be unselfish in service and devotion to the welfare of others." That has always impressed something upon me - likely it's the inability to say 'NO' to someone asking something of me.

So, this holiday season while we're thinking of others, let's not forget about ourselves!!!

Several years ago I made a wishlist for one of the Mustang parts sites and sent the link out to my friends and family. That year I did get a lot of things I actually wanted! It was fantastic! So, I'm thinking about doing this again. Luckily there are a lot of small and inexpensive bits and pieces for Mustangs!

Here are some parts I'm ordering for myself:
L&R Quarter Panel Skins
L&R Outer Wheelhouses
Front to rear gas line
Front to rear brake line
Brake/Fuel line clip set
Parking brake link springs

Let's hear your wants and needs that you all wish would get fulfilled this Holiday Season!

Thanks,

Perry

P.S. And for anyone else that I'm actually gifting something to - I'm building you a birdhouse or birdfeeder. :D

With all the Cars & Trucks I currently have sitting around here( :shock: :o ..),I'm going to need some time to think about it :lol: . One of my 'Big' items is Machine work:-I already have a Chrysler/225 'Head @ the Machine Shop getting redone,along with a 250 C**vr**let Engine getting a complete refresh:-Block,Crankshaft,Cyl. Head. Everything. Plus,I'm fooling around with another C***y 250:-I'm attempting a basic clean/repair/"Ring-N-Bearing" rebuild. I'm copying the Article from Car-Craft Magazine:-"Build an Engine for $450.00." It's from 1998(I actually forget the Date/Months the Story because I don't have the Issue in front of me :oops: ..). Anyway,I'm attempting that. I've always wanted to try a "Cheapie" rebuild like this. That's about it,@ least when it comes to the Car stuff,well,the 'Big' Car stuff,that is. I still buy 'em up when I come across something I can't live without :o :hmmm: :oopsie: ! ~OO6.
