Default I love my GF! (Christmas Present)

So, we exchanged gifts today and I got her a camera with a 1G sd card. And what does she get me? Three runs at the local dyno.. what a sweet girl. So hopefully before too long I can get some solid numbers to throw at you guys.

Nice man, i got a toolbox and a pair of Docksider's. Said she'd get me new DP if I really wanted it, decided on the others though. Looking forward to the numbers.

MY GF and I decided to not trade gifts. We baked gifts for all our friends. We wanted to remember that its not about gift giving but care for each other. Being in Israel last year during christmas, and celebration christmas eve vigial mass in Bet-lehem (bethlehem) was great.

dyno sounds cool though hehe

Nice, she bought me a few small things, but wants to take me shopping for my new watch and a scarf. And she loved her gifts, but no woman can resist jewelry.

Among presents from wife:
matchbox sized eunos roadster model on stand, very detailed.
One of those novelty "parking only for __" signs I tend to dislike. Only she had it custom made, says
Reserved
parking
for
mazda
mx-5's
only
<->
Lesser cars will
be scoffed at

Which is cool, because she took into account that I don't much like to call our cars miatas.

The little bro bought me new headlights and poly engine mount inserts for my project MR2 Turbo. Yup, I like cars.

Yea, I think I will keep her around for a while. I always find it funny, she tells me that I need to get a different exhaust, because it isn't loud enough for how much power it has. Who would've imagined...

Wife got me this:

I got me this to use the above on:

She doesn't know about it yet as it won't arrive til Jan 2-4. How long can you keep a car hidden from a signifcant other?

Michael,
If you want to keep loving your GF, don't make her your wife!

Yea yea, you stole an FMII with a Motec. Quit rubbing it in. I'm soo pissed I saw that car & didn't bid. Congrats again and enjoy it!

BTW, if you have a seperate, off site garage, you can hide bikes and cars for quite a while. Then when she finally sees it you just say, "Yes, you are crazy honey. We've had that bike for 9 months. We spoke about it, remember?"

I haven't rubbed it in that much yet as until I actually get it I'm out $9K!

My father lives about 5 miles away. Not sure if I can talk him into moving his Suby out of the garage in favor of me storing the Miata there. That would make him an accomplice.

My wife's oblivious to most things (new wheels on my Forester, FMIC, etc) but I doubt I can hide a car for long.
