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.

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 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.

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. Smile

Chance

ps- forgot about the bus calendar
