Hello everyone!

My Secret Santa did some good research.....I got a Chevy High Perrformance 2001 Camaro (white wheels and hubs).....I had mentioned that I was fond of those white wheels....A HWs TH New Beetle (I mentioned that Bugs and T-birds were my fav. castings)....a Car & Driver Dream Cars daily calendar (for the office) and a bag of M & Ms...(for my sweet tooth).

Very Cool!!!!!!!! Thank you very much Secret Santa... :thumbsup:

Also included was a brand x HotBird and a bunch of chocolate. :) I must admit I never heard of a Goo Goo Cluster but by looking at the wrapper I wish I have. :) :thumbsup:

Well I do not know who my Secret santa is because there was no name on the box other than "Secret Santa". I do know however, that my gift came from New Jersey and that it is just right for me. Here's what was in the box I received:

#) A completed set of Mooneyes cars including:
'32 Ford Highboy
'41 Willys coupe
'50 Ford F-1
'58 Fury
60's Shelby Cobra
60's dragster
#) Gray Baskerville's '32 Ford Roadster
#) Tenth Anniversary "Color Me Gone" Challenger
#) Four Collector CLub Exclusives which are as follows:
*Three 60's VW Buses
- "Peace" Hippie Bus
- Sun and Moon Bus
- two tone Bus in red and white
* BWF '55 Chevy 2-door sedan (#821 of 2000)

There was also a McDonald's Hot Wheels car that is pretty cool and a "Salute to Richard Petty" '84 Grand Prix from Cheerios.


Let me just say "THANK YOU!" to whoever sent these. I cannot thank you enough. I did not have any of those VeeDubs. The two Hippie buses I have never even seen other than in pictures. They are even cooler than I thought they could be. That '55 Chevy is hot too! I missed out on that one because I just never got around to ordering one. I'm happy as heck to have it. I'd forgotten that it even existed.
The Moon stuff is great too. I love it. There's something special about getting that set too. Not only is it just plain cool, but last week someone posted a thread about the Muscle Trucks box set which included a '50 Ford F-1. I posted a reply stating that I do not have a single example of that truck but that I really like it. Well, now I have one and it is too cool. Thank you Santa, whoever you are. You made my Christmas morning very exciting.

Merry Christmas to all from the great green north!! That's right, not one flake of snow here in Ottawa, Canada!

Well, the family don't get here for another hour or so....in the meantime, thank you Secret Santa!





All I can say is Thank you. This is my first 1/24 Johnny Lightning Muscle Car and I love it. It will influence me to buy more! I love the others too...I don't even have one of them...which seems impossible!! BUT...the framed picture blew me away and the signed picture is just amazing! I've got a great spot picked out for both already!

Thank you so much for putting a smile on my face this morning!

I would also like to thank my Secret Santa for their kind and thoughtful box of goodies!!

First, the person quite a bit of research about me, and really put alot of thought in what they sent me. I got a bit of black and a bit of white in my box.

I was given a Black Bandit Camaro!! I never got that car, and was very happy to get it. I always wanted to buy one, but never got around to it.

Next was a WL Corvette, and even though I have it, I will always keep it. (I'm now going to open the one I have, and enjoy one lose)!

They made me a Hobby talk I.D Card with my join date, and to commemorate my 3000th post which is coming soon. It's laminated and everything!

A ziplock with some chocolate, nuts and a candy cane! (yummmm)

There was a Secret Santa Hobby Talk Christmas letter included, with holiday greetings. In it an explanation of the box's contents.

The most thoughtful item, however, was a framed photograph he/she took of the rear flank of a Chevrolet Bel Air. (It is numbered 4/10...and signed Secret Santa 12/06!!

What an incredible joy it was to open! Thank you so much whoever you are! What a special group of gifts they are!

Merry Christmas!!

So much for the Sectret Santa part, thanks to the USPS. The clerk told me when I filled out the customs form that it stayed with her (I had told her it was supposed to be secret).

And yes, the TL tow truck is a WL, and you are welcome.

69Stang,maybe you know, but that marvel X Men olds looks like a WL to me.
Looks like you guys had a haul there.
REALLY??? No I had know idea! Is it because the lower body panel is primer grey instead of purple? It has no "standard" white properties! Someone please tell me...that would just be icing on the cake!!! I truly have no real grasp on the whites, so any help would be great!
