GT Christmas Tree

The GT performed marvelously in delivering the 8' tall Frasier fir that we picked up today. 30 weeks pregnant wife and beloved 5 year old Havanese also pictured. Click image for larger version

Yet another great set of photos of the GT in utilitarian mode! I enjoyed the fact your wife was photographing your pup while you are doing the same with the GT, feels like yesterday you were posting your Barcelona MB rental experience! Are you two keeping the "bun in the oven's" gender a mystery until the delivery?

@Daders, you not only have a keen eye but a great memory as well... Oh Barçelona, what a trip that was!

But to answer your question, we're having a boy! He'll be a junior but instead of Jake he'll be called Jack, after his Great-Grandfather who is 95. Expect to see GT + baby pics by late February early March.

Regards from Chicago my friend!

Awesomeness as always. Love all the pics. It makes me miss my GT (wife decided she likes the GT so I'm now stuck with her F10). After a year with our daughter, our lives are somewhat normal again, meaning we're getting close to 7 hrs of straight sleep. The great thing about the GT (and the main reason the wife prefers it) is that the car is so roomy. We have the convertible carseat facing rearward and there's plenty of room for a tall passenger. With her F10, only a midget can fit in the passenger seat.

A boy and a future GT owner! One if those pics of the little guy in the GT's drivers seat sometime next summer would be neat to see.

Best wishes for a smooth delivery when the happy day arrives......!

Excellent. We will all look forward to those pics!

By the way, here is how my balsam fir Christmas tree came home today. It is about 6 ft 6 in from tip to tip and yes, the big lid was fully closed. Love that GT versatility..........Click image for larger version
