    Hey! If any of you are looking for any last-minute gift ideas for me, I have one. I'd like Frank Shirley, my boss, right here tonight. I want him brought from his happy holiday slumber over there on Melody Lane with all the other rich people and I want him brought right here, with a big ribbon on his head, and I want to look him straight in the eye and I want to tell him what a cheap, lying, no-good, rotten, four-flushing, low-life, snake-licking, dirt-eating, inbred, overstuffed, ignorant, blood-sucking, dog-kissing, brainless, dickless, hopeless, heartless, fat-ass, bug-eyed, stiff-legged, spotty-lipped, worm-headed sack of monkey $h1t he is! Hallelujah! Holy $h1t! Where's the Tylenol?

    Where do you think you're going? Nobody's leaving. Nobody's walking out on this fun, old-fashioned family Christmas. No, no. We're all in this together. This is a full-blown, four-alarm holiday emergency here. We're gonna press on, and we're gonna have the hap, hap, happiest Christmas since Bing Crosby tap-danced with Danny ****ing Kaye. And when Santa squeezes his fat white ass down that chimney tonight, he's gonna find the jolliest bunch of assholes this side of the nuthouse.

    Okay...that photo is begging to become an 8" x 10" color glossy, framed in cherrywood and hanging over the mantle right next to the tree currently on the car. Another Father/Daughter moment. Priceless.

    You actually use your roof rack?
    Hell I just throw stuff in the back, I find a dripping wet tree is just too heavy for the roof. Makes that gawd awful 'FAAA-WHUMP!' everytime you hit a bump with a load on it.

    I couldn't even tell the tree was up there. I had to double check a few times just to make sure, lol.

    I think the Griswold wagon was a better beater. Good old trusty Taurus with the wood paneling package!!!

    I love this pic - it's the perfect Fox Body Christmas Card! By all means, put that in a frame on the mantle. It almost makes me want a Fox wagon with wood paneling on the side. It's been a while since I've had a woody wagon!

    That's true... The "Wagon Queen Family Truckster" if from the first "Vacation" film with the Griswolds. The Truckster was based on a 1983 Ford LTD Country Squire wagon - it was designed and built by George Barris.



    The wagon used in Christmas Vacation was a 1988 Ford Taurus wagon with wood paneling on the sides (I don't think that Ford ever offered that option on a Taurus...):



    IMHO - Jimbo's Mercury Zephyr Villager wagon is a much more attractive car if I have to make a choice!
