Way too much info.

 Where are the moderators here. ;) 

Just kidding. 

The info in the quotes is taken directly from the packaging.  😎

Just so you all know, I did buy the wife some stuff for Christmas including this little box with something special inside I wrapped up for her.

Was it the keys to that $4,300 garage door, so she could get her car out without bothering you too much? 🤣

No it wasn't but now that you mention it she could have bought me the garage door opener for it. ;)  

I couldn't afford the extra 1000 for an opener so we'll have to do it manually for a while. Now if I hadn't bought that little box I would have been a long ways toward an opener.

She was happy with it when she opened it,  so that's all that matters.

I found an accessory front bumper for the '25 Buick on ebay. My wife helped pay for it.She was shocked when I told her what the finished product was going to cost !

She also bought me an 1860 vintage Snider-Enfield rifle,complete with bayonet and scabbard,that a friend offered me before Christmas. That lady's a keeper.

Some "sticklers" might get concerned about the Duluth Trading Company's advertised "benefits", all things considered.  Then combine those advertised benefits, with empty drawers now full (of implements and other solid things), raising garage doors, etc., some might not realize that we're possibly more "dreamers" who are always thinking of cars and getting them running again?  AND many have success without fuel additives!

 

Happy NEW YEAR!

Got this canvas print of a '54 Special from Fred Zwicker, owner of TP Tools & Equipment in Canfield, Ohio. His shop restored the car and with the help of the 1954buick.com forum got a Gold award with a perfect score of 400 it's first time out at the Concord NC Buick Nationals. Fred is one of the nicest and most generous rich folks I know and I have been on his Christmas list since getting to know him. I think his son has now taken over the operation of the business. His company specializes in blast cabinets and painting equipment but also has lots of small tools. You can get a catalog at    TP TOOLS

The canvas will be mounted on a wooden frame and displayed in the  '54 area of Buick Sales and Service.... some day.....

I received this from my son.

Looks like it will be good for the small parts needing to restore.IMG_4165.thumb.JPG.d6300693942544c7c19d574e061fdb8e.JPG

Friends and Neighbors Monty and Leah Warsing presented me with this sign for Christmas. They had accompanied us on the America on Wheels tour several years ago. They like to indulge me in my Buick hobby. Now I just need to complete repairs on my old Buicks!

My boss knows how I love working on the old Buicks and she knows that a roll-away can never have too many tools in it, so, this appeared under the tree.  As I always tell everyone, there are only three things in this world that are worth a solitary dime - and they are GM, JD, and HD. (not necessarily in that order).  The Boss did good.

No wife in the list?  I would think she is #1 and everything else is after her.
