View Full Version : Twas The Night Before Christmas, STS-V Style

"Twas the night before Christmas and all through the garage,
There wasn't a a trace of a Ford or a Dodge.

The presents were wrapped and the lights were all lit,
So I figured I'd mess with the V for a bit.

So I popped the release and I lifted the hood.
When a deep voice behind me said "Looks pretty good!"

Well as you can imagine, I turned pretty quick,
And there, by the workbench, stood good ol' Saint Nick!

I stood there a bit, not sure what to say,
Then he said "don't suppose that you'd trade for my sleigh?'

I said "No way, Santa and started to grin,
"But if you got time we could go for a spin!"

His round little mouth, tied up like a bow,
Turned into a smile and he said "Hell Yeah, let's go!!!"

So as not to disturb all the neighbors' retreat,
We pushed the V quietly into the street.

Taking our places we each closed our door,
Then I pressed on the starter and let the V roar.

The sound that erupted took him by suprise,
But he liked it alot, by the look in his eyes.

And Santa's grin widened, approaching his ears,
As that automatic went through the gears.

Then he yelled "cant recall when I felt so alive!!"
So I backed off the gas and said "You want to drive?"

Yes Santa was stunned when I gave him the keys,
As he got in the V he shook at the knees!

That supercharged V8 exploded with sound.
And as Santa took off those wheels shook the ground!

He shifted that auto . . . first, second, then third!
I sat there in awe, at loss for a word.

Then I heard him exclaim as we blasted from sight,
"Merry Christmas to all, it's a V kind of a night!!!!"
