Mine came over the weekend!

 

Such a mysterious return address...

On top we have a shirt, a bag full of injectors, and a mystery box.

What's in the box?

A hoist! Also, a work lamp, a Michigan plate (stay warm up there!), some fine Italian candy, enough fuel injectors for all of the vehicles I currently own and then some, and a pretty sweet Ford lab coat. I'm pumped about that.

 

Thanks Jeff! I think that Jeff is going to be my home science experiment alter ego - this thing will definitely get some use.  Thanks for this bit of Christmas cheer - we moved to CA over the summer, so this is the first Christmas either my wife or I has spent away from family.  It was greatly appreciated.

 

Mine is en route as of today!

I'm pleased to report that I finally got my box to the fine folks at the post office today. Washington DC will be receiving some of the finest garage crap from Washington state soon.

Unboxed my package today. Most excellent contents all the way from Portland. Unfortunately one of the two bottles of home brewed cider broke in transit. Thankfully the packaging mostly prevented damage to the remaining contents of the box. I'll get the pictures I took uploaded later along with exciting commentary of the contents.

Also, I will get my box on its way this week. We've been away from home for a couple of weeks.

I got a package forum Raleigh, NC, today. I haven't sent mine out yet, so in fairness, I haven't opened it. I'll be sending mine out Thursday, so I'll report back with pictures then.

I recieved mine yesterday which has served as a way to make me feel guilty for not sending mine out yet.

Mine went out last Friday I think- I honestly have a difficult time remembering exactly what day was what over the last 2 weeks. Hopefully it's nearing its destination out near my employer's home base...

Received mine last week as well, but still have yet to really unpack it- hopefully I'll get the chance to tonight and take pictures to post.

Can i just say I'm quite jealous of the 'junk' some of you guys have kicking around your garages? My garage is full of actual junk.

nice.  I enjoy a good enchilada as well.  I'm about done my bibimbap from Bibibop. Also tasty, and fairly priced for this area.

In reply to Robbie :

I know at least in my case I try and collect things throughout the year (several of the things I sent were amusing things I found while parts hunting in junkyards) as well as save parts when I pull them from projects.

That’s a garrett t25 turbo rebuild kit, I figured you would use it before me.  Mystery tool came from an old guy that worked for ohio bell.  Brake pads are 99-?? Super duty ford fronts.

We did lunch out of the office today. We had to pick up our passes for the Roar Before the Rolex, so we combined that with some Chinese food.

I'll be opening it in a few. Had to get some editorial into the pipeline first.
