What's the best thing under the tree that you bought yourself?

My wife, who to her credit drives a stick shift and is a bit of a gearhead herself, prefers to have me order my own gifts if they involve the Mustang.

This year, being the first year with my still-under-warranty 5.0, I went pretty modest, but I am still excited. I got one of those large soft-sided cargo organizers from Ford, which is not cheap but gets very good reviews. Now if my wife sends me to Wal-Mart, I can take the curves at my preferred speed without having a gallon of milk rolling around in the trunk. I also got a couple of T-shirts from CJ Pony Parts for good measure.

What's under your tree?

From another posts I did today:

Merry Christmas to me:

My age is 72 years old. I purchased a 1965 Mustang Convertible Silver blue new in 1965 right after I graduated from collage. I had to swap it for a station wagon (ugh) in 1969 when My wife and I had twin boys. SO.......

This past year I purchased a 1964.5 Mustang convertible vintage burgundy. OK, so it is not the same one, but it is close enough for me to bring back memories. I purchased this car with money from my boys inheritance The Mustang had been refinished and when I got it, the steering wheel had been replaced also. I got the old steering wheel from the seller. I tell you all of this to lead up to:

I put a Christmas Bow in the steering wheel with a to "Papa Joe" as this is what my kids and grand-kids call me, and a "from" labled with the twins name.
I will be sure and "Thank" them on Christmas day... Ho Ho Ho..

Love it when a plan comes together

Papa Joe
