Coffee Brake: What Do You Want For Christmas?

Time for DT's Coffee Brake, where the coffee is over ice and the eggs are over easy.  Speaking of is easy enough to know what you DON'T want for Christmas -- a Prius, syphilis, a jar full of hungry spiders with a lid made from graham crackers, or a night on the town with Martin Shkreli -- but the hard question is what do you want for Christmas?

I'd like a full scale model of an AT-ST Imperial Scout Walker, but I'd also settle for some kind of small tool or a homemade craft from the kids.  Whatever.  What do you want...or what do you suggest for gearheads?


  1. Alright, I will break the ice. Not car related but I would really like a Catalinbread Adineko delay pedal. It recreates the old oil can delays of the 1960's that are hard to find now and full of polychlorinated biphenyl oil.

    1. That's very cool! I think I might get this for my sons...

  2. That's easy:

    Two chicks at the same time.

    1. Two chicks = double the henpecking.

    4. OK, here you go. Have a great time:


  3. Okay, that one's easy:

    I'll settle for GT40 1075, the '69 Gulf/JW winner:

    Or just a McLaren M8D-M8F with a decent history.
