    If I had one Christmas wish, it would be for all the children in the world to hold hands and live in harmony and peace.

    If I had two Christmas wishes, the first would be for all the children in the world to hold hands and live in harmony and peace and the second would be to own a 250 SWB, the first vintage Ferrari that I fell in love with before I even knew what a vintage Ferrari was.

    If I had three Christmas wishes, the first would be the thing with the kids, then the SWB, except there's too many of them and, since it is a wish and I'm not paying, I'd probably go with a 250 GTO, and the third wish would be to get on that damn MSRP list, at the very top, so I can get the new models before anyone else.

    So there you have it. My three wishes for...Oh! wait!... I forgot vengeance! I should wish for revenge against all those jerks that have scratched the hood of my car when posing for pictures, and all those Z06 drivers that have beaten me at stoplight drag races, and that guy in the WRX that passed me in the third corner at the last track event. May they all get flat tires and transmission failures!

    So my three wishes...Vengeance first, then the list, then the GTO, or, wait.. the entire contents of Napolis' garage, and finally the holding hands thing. Wait..that's four wishes...ok forget the kids, we've been trying for the last 2000 years for peace and harmony and it hasn't worked out so why even bother with that one?

    In conclusion, Vengeance, Power and Money. Yeah that's three.

    Seriously folks, keep to the spirit of the season and Happy Holidays to all. :)

    Thanks for the funny post! Although it's great to see Steve Martin in movies, I was always disappointed that he moved away from his comedy. REAL Classics!!

    I think he's even forgotten how funny he was. The jerk was the closest movie to portray his style of comedy, oh ya and when he played Ruprett in
    Dirty Rotten Scoundrels hilarious.
