Most memorable present ever
6000 lb gift
Last year's present was a bit bigger than normal.
My wife just reminded me last week about how much she loved her Christmas present from 2007.
She has been driving mini-vans for the past 10 years and really wanted something a bit more fun.
It was a point in time where she really needed something special and yes, it's not exactly the most practical of gifts, but sometimes you just need something to totally lift your spirits.
I was able to subtly get out of her what would be her ultimate vehicle-- right down to the color.
We couldn't afford a brand new one, but I found this one less than a year old in St. Louis. I was able to fly to St. Louis, drive this back, hide it for 2 weeks, sell another car and wrap this one on Christmas morning without her knowing.
She thought I had put a new remote starter in her mini-van and had it detailed for her as a present.
She was truly suprised, but I guess you could tell from the video.
