      Kudos on the Elvgren plug. The breadth of his work definitley goes beyond the hot rod culture and he is most definitely my favorite Cheescake artist.

      To carry the essentials, check out the 18” nylon Girlgear Industries 65 Pink Tool Bag. A reinforced hard bottom floor keeps the bag sturdy, and the pockets hold everything from hand tools to power tools.

      While that's quite a lovely suggestion, this car chick is kindly asking Santa for one of these to hold all her garage essentials:

      Okay, where did you find the purple one? I searched for hours for a purple one.

      Nice write up Cherise. However, when I typed up my letter to the North Pole...I specifically asked for nothing pink or girly [in the tool department]

      Those seatbelt bags are killer, [check out ebay for them too!]

      I find it awesome that no matter how much of a car girl a woman is, they still swoon over purses.

      I don't understand why none of the company releases or articles like this use hot links to the websites/products. Instead I have to copy paste URLs. Seems just plain silly.

    9. 11-30-2007 12:35 PM #9
      I chose not to include links because URLs for specific products on shopping sites such as Zappos and Amazon change frequently.

      I'm baffled by the fact that men don't need bags! Maybe if I didn't end up carrying my husband's cell phone and keys whenever we go out...

      I lusted after the Harveys bags for several years, and finally received one as a bridal shower gift.

      Does this call for an article on "VWVortex Bridal Shower Gift Guide For the Tuner Woman"?

      Very cool! Thanks, Vortex. I think I'll get her the book, as she loves to read.

      I take full responsibility for the camo gloves!!

      I have a few pair and frankly, they're some of the only gloves I own that fit properly. The fingers are nice and long and the wrists aren't gargantuan. I use the heat sleeves, too, which I got turned on to when working in the body shop at an auto plant. Holy cow, no more burned up forearms from getting too close to the exhaust and no more cuts or scrapes from bolts that stick out or sheet metal that's loose. Total must-have.

      Reesie - that box is cobalt blue, not purple. Believe me, if there was a purple one, I would have found it!

      Great list. I think I need to leave that Demeter list around the house. Celery actually sounds really good.....

      My wife Briar won a set of those pink camo Mechanix gloves at the TT-West gtg in Oregon last summer, and she loves them! She was used to the nitrile gloves, but these are much more substantial and protective of her delicate fingers. Which means she's all the more willing to turn wrenches with me!

      Celery's not my favorite, but it's a nice, clean scent. Leaving the list around the house is a bit over-the-top, dear. Does Steven overlook more subtle hints?

      Have we not discussed this? I have to send out a list every year! Sometimes I have to get my mom on the case.

      I have some of the Demeter Pure-fume's and they rock! The Laundrymat one smells just like clean clothes out of the dryer! And they have other fun ones like Sex on the Beach and Birthday Cake and Martini's too. They are awesome!

      Kudo's to the Vortex for putting that awesome list together!
