Did anyone get what he wanted for his bus? I didn't get anything but I would like to have gotten a set of front seat upholstery for a pre-1962 walk-thru bus (nobody seems to make them).
May the bus god have smiled at you and given you what ever you wanted.

i got some tools i need for working on my buses. other than that, nothing as far as bus needed things. i could have used 300 bucks so i could get my 60 westy on the road. yep, thats all i need is 300 bucks, and my westy will be on the road!

Jesus- that's what Christmas is about huh... :roll:Just wait until you have kids (God forbid), hopefully that's when you'll see what ITs about...then again, maybe you'll see that your kids will come first regardless of the time of year..

Amen to that, my 3 year old was in heaven. 1st x-mas he really knew what it was about 1st presents then Jesus' birthday.

As for the original poster of this thread. Nothing for the bus. I did get a couple of Johnny Lighting buses but the best gift was a semi restored vintage 1950's Gulf gas pump to display in my home office. This thing kicks ass. My wife really suprised the hell out of me.

I was desperately trying to find a Double cab model for my dad, but couldn't find one :( I did manage to find some good Steve McQueen DVD's..

I got a new set of body hammers and dollies to use On my bus, does that count?? :D I also got a VW beetle calander....

I came home on X-mas night after being out of town touring the relatives parties and had waiting for me my Stiftung birth certificate for my DC - which I thought was a pretty cool gift.

I got a rotary tool set (Dremel type) for getting out tiny bits of rust.

2005 must be the year of the pirate. My three year old received FIVE pirate ships.

I usually tell santa what i want, then i just buy it myself, because my santa never quite gets me those vw related gifts i keep asking for. Maybe for next year i will show santa some pictures of the items i need....hopefully then santa will get the hint :wink:

vwhooligan Tue Dec 27, 2005 8:08 pm

Got a book on the Transporter from the Schiffer Auto Series (as seen in shiftys post) and a DVD with the show from the History Channel on the bug. Not much stuff for the bus itself, that is unless you count the wife allowing me to spend the last 5-6 days getting wires and rewiring it. :)
