Christmas Ideas?

This may sound strange but stay with me here.

Debi and I have a Christmas tradition where we select a letter from the alphabet and our gifts to each other must start with that letter.

This years it's "I", so I need some help people. (she will never look here on this forum)

A pic of my friend Ken's new hardtop as an early Christmas Gift.

"I" want one!

Chime In! (get it, chime, Christmas, alright I'll stop)

For you, Debi can get you a bottle of Irish Whiskey.

For her, get her the Islands, all expenses paid trip for two to The Islands, Bora Bora that is, (hopefully she'll take you).

Thanks,

One year the letter was "R" and I hocked everything and got her a Royal Caribbean Cruise.

I like the Irish whiskey tip and will drop the hint somehow.

I'm going to hock more stuff and get her some ICE. (Diamonds) because I just ordered a TR6 service book and she reminded me that I just broke the rules and purchased an "I" for myself.

An "instruction" manual

Keep the "Ideas" flowing!

Not a flattering description, but the thought is there: a new idiot box (TV). Flatscreen of course...

Alan,

I like your twisted thinking, this is what I need from people.

Off the wall "I"deas!

More "I"

Debi is more into Jags. She wants a XK120, so I'm trying to stay away from the letter "J".

I like the direction you're going but not an IMP.

I'm searching for other cars that start with "I", besides and Chevy Impala.
