No Christmas for my mustang. :(

So Christmas shopping has put a serious dent in my wallet. I've realized my holiday stress is due to me putting my mustang last on my list which seems more like the back burner until I recover financially. Am I alone in feeling like my mustang is being left out?

Re: No Christmas for my mustang. :(

no your not alone, only reason im getting anything for the mustang is due to 1 thing and one thing only MY WIFE last christmas she got her suv, our annv. in oct she got a new $3000 dollar ring, and for christmas i got her a remote start for her car....i get to spend 1k on my car which is the last bit of deployment money i get from here and i might end up using that just to pay off crap.....christmas math in my house is wife 32k+3k+250=me maybe nothing under the tree but dust

I feel you I have 3 kids too. Very rare to fund the mustang. But when I do it's almost like Christmas!

It gets to be a pain sometimes, but the smiles and excitement are worth it.

I love Christmas, I'm awesome at gift giving. But it kills the wallet! I've only recently takin interest in modifying mustang. So I've got a ton of ideas and a mile long parts list. But modding a mustang is not cheap and the people closest to me could not afford to gift me anything. The anticipation is killing me! I wanna get back on track and let my mustang fly!

Mine will only be 9 months come Christmas, so I guess next year will be the first one she'll really know what's going on.

Thats funny it sure is to fun to watch them. I used love it when I was a kid. Christmas is still fun tough. Not sure about the Mustang for me.. Get her one of those power wheels Mustangs. Nothing like getting them hooked when they are young. That brings me back when I was a kid, we used to have to go in order from youngest to oldest. I hated it.

It's by far one of my favs I rank Christmas Vacation up there too. "Except it wasn't the fuuuudggeee it was the big one, the mother of all curse words." The narration was great. The Chinese restaurant and them trying to sing deck the halls- that was great.

All though, their Mom does have a '11 SuperCrew F150. Lol

Haha a young car enthusiast , that sounds like me at 3. Before TVs in cars were common I used to play car bingo. You had to spot the different manufactures. I was obssed with them. Didn't know I wanted a Mustang then. I knew wanted a BMW, I still do. Good thing she has parents that like cars, mine don't like them much. One thing I hoard is cars.

Then tell my wife to take over my F250 and let me get a Mustang instead of her new SUV. I have been looking at used GT prices 01-04 since I like that body style the best but 10K for a ten year old stang is kinda high

Haha! The F-250 is a great safe truck probably safer than any SUV out there. Just think how easy it is to get the stroller out of the back of an F-250.
