:|| ||'Twas the night before Christmas and in the garage, There wasn't a trace of a Chevy or a Dodge.|
The presents were wrapped and the lights were all lit, So I figured I'd mess with the Stang for a bit.
I popped the release and I lifted the hood, When a deep voice behind me said 'looks pretty good.'
Well, as you can imagine, I turned mighty quick, And there, by the workbench, stood good ol Saint Nick!
We stood there a bit, not too sure what to say, Then he said 'don't suppose that you'd trade for my sleigh!?
I said 'no way, Santa' and started to grin, 'But if you've got the time we could go for a spin!'
His round little mouth, all tied up like a bow, Turned into a smile and he said 'hey! Let's go!!'
So as not to disturb all the neighbors' retreat, We pushed the Mustang quietly into the street.
Then, taking our places to drift down the hill, I turned on the key and I let the clutch spill.
The sound that erupted took him by surprise, But he liked it a lot, by the look in his eyes.
With Hoosier`s a' crying and side pipes aglow, We headed on out where the hot rodders go.
And Santa's grin widened, approaching his ears, With every up shift, as I went through the gears.
Then he yelled 'can't recall when I've felt so alive!', So I backed off the gas and said 'you wanna drive!?'
Ol Santa was stunned when I gave him the keys, When he walked past the headlights he shook at the knees!
Then the big block exploded with side exhaust sound! Santa let out the clutch and the tires shook the ground!
Power shift into second, again into third! I sat there just watching, at loss for a word.
Then I heard him exclaim as we blasted from sight, 'Merry Christmas to all...........what a great night'
:|| ||Great story, but I can only envision Santa in a Wimbledon White 1970 Boss 429.

|Sweet Santa:|| ||I have a Vintage Burgundy 1967 Hardtop with the same hood as pictured but a black vinyl roof. The engine is the 200hp 289 with a 2 bbl. carb. There's a centre console with a roll-up door for a compartment, an AM radio, a T-handle shifter and extra floor lighting for the back seat. One day I'll dig it out of the garage, chase off it's squirrels and give it another resto. [Editor: cool, consider sending us photos before and after]|
