    a kitten calendar, a DVD that I've been wanting, a kitty kitchen timer, nice new towels, a whole bunch of Nivea skin products, perfume, chocolates, and one of those Wheat Heat things. It's a pillow filled with wheat berries. You microwave it and it gets nice and warm. Then you can put over your feet, neck, lap, wherever you feel cold. It's my favorite present this year.

    Valve job on the car, 2 huge soup/coffee cups, money, and some other assorted goodies. Ironically, all I wanted was the car fixed.

    MP3/XM radio, some tools, a new belt for carrying a holster on and lots of great things from my kids that took a lot of thought. We do that with our kids so they dont think that money gifts are the only kind to give.

    A bit better, she still feels like she's lacking a bit of the power she used to have (and when there's only 102hp and 98tq ... a little matters). But it runs, so I can't complain.

    *whines* I wanna 270hp Mr.Gasket Engine ... and then suspension mods... yay for autocross! But that won't happen, too expensive, and not very cost effective.

    I'd rather but that 7K it would cost me for all the upgrades and just wait will I have a car worth modding. Hell, a TT kit for a 2001 Corvette is only 8K. ANd that will be loads of fun! :D

    That's the way to go. Wait until you have wheels worth the expense. (And in case you are wondering A1, the suspension issue has not been addressed yet. A lot of the shake has been reduced by replacing the alternator, the oil rebreather and a new front tire. Forks are still needed for the front, so the new suspension will get ordered then. And the fiberglass will have to wait for next summer...... at which time I will be designing/building a new one with hubby just for me. I have already started cruising the junk yards looking for a back end. ;) ).

    A custom trike. I'm looking for a 60's super beetle for the back. I haven't decided between a honda goldwing or a harley for the front. And I haven't decided if the back seat should accomodat 1 or 2 people.
