It began innocently enough, with a 1.6 intake manifold blockoff plate which Braineack purchased from Genesplicer:

So when Vlad (18PSI) purchased a 3.636 Ring & Pinion gearset from me, I knew what had to be done:

Not content to rest on his laurels, GeneSplicer upped the ante when he sold some tires to Sixshooter:

She said "You just got a big stack of tires delivered here, and... umm... they're gay."
I said, "They're what?"
"They're gay tires."
"They're slicks. They aren't supposed to have any tread on them. Is that what you are referring to?"
"No. The tires are gay. They are wrapped in rainbow colored strapping and have a picture of a half naked guy with a wrench. All of the parts guys and mechanics are laughing about it."
"Awesome!"
"It's awesome that you got gay tires from UPS?'
"Yes ma'am. It's pretty awesome."
"I've got another call. I just wanted you to know."
Scott.. you alone art worthy of my glitter

Steve too modest to post pics, so I will on his behalf

Who will ship the next super-fabulous package to an MT member, and post images here for all of us to applaud?

Maybe it'll be you.

Ok, so several days ago THIS dubious *** package shows up at my office...


It has a kitty on it, I'm sure its safe...


I need to remember to write something similar on the bottom of my car


I'm down for "Super fun happy time"


I'm sure that's French for "expensive" (its right)


My mother was right, I AM special!

Let's see what's inside, shall we?


Aaaannnnnndddddd that's more like what I was expecting. My coworkers enjoyed it


Found these mixed in with the packing


This combined with the drawings is a little unnerving. My co workers were a little more weirded out now. All I can think of is "oh jesus, not glitter!"


Turbo kitty is best kitty!


Bottles and glasses wrapped in multiple layers of tissue paper. All arrived undamaged!


YESSSSSS! That's what I was looking for!


Indeed I shall!

All items arrived undamaged and in condition as described. Item was well packed. Shipping over the holidays was complicated but communication with seller was spot on. A+++++, would buy from again.

Joe, we also need a forum medal for this I believe... kinda like a championship belt. Splicer needs one.

The relative subtlety of that one may make it the most uncomfortable.

LOL, i wish I had a picture of the package I had sent to Matthewsdesigns, would have fit perfectly in this thread. Lots of rainbows and a butterfly-**** thing.

GeneSplicer, Should I feel honored I received a boring brown box when I ordered you AF setup, or crushed I wasn't worth your time :'(

You got the wrong guy...

IIRC, my boring tuner packed and shipped from his shop (he doesn't have time to think about penises and ponies). Also, didn't we ship that to Abe? He would have been an innocent bystander... I'll have to make it up to you... what's your address again

Dang it. I just sent a MT member a package today, and just now saw this thread.

Missed opportunity.

Dammit! Pen2 beat me to it.

TurboTim wrapped my manifold with what I believe was a teen and pre-teen girls underwear add. That was entertaining to open at the office. It was in a damn Jessel Valvetrain box so I had like 6 guys chomping at the bit to see what was inside
