Sway bars and bushings and bumpstops on Konis…
New wheels and tires so I can do doughnies…
New plugs and wires and maintenance things

These are a few of my favorite things.

Well, today is Christmas Eve. Santa is almost done with his customary redundant list review, and we’re one day away from finding out which side of the naughty/nice leger you fell on this year. While we were preparing for the big day, the folks at Summit Racing asked the following question on their Facebook and Instagram social media:

What’s On Your Gearhead Holiday Wishlist for 2021?

But judging from the scope and scale of your reader contributions, Santa may want to do a third check of that aforementioned list, just to make sure you earned it.

Take a look at some of our favorite responses below and feel free to add any more in the comments section at the bottom of this article—better do it quick though, because the Elves are fueling up the reindeer right about now.
