Actually, I'll take the hug.

Dear Tom and Ray:

I will hug your neck if you can find me a place to get a gear box for a 1966 Ford truck with four wheel drive. That's all I need to put it back on the road.

RAY: You don't have to threaten us, Wanda! We'll give you the answer anyway.

TOM: Actually, I'll take the hug. You need to pick up a copy of Hemmings Motor News, which is published in Bennington, Vermont. Hemmings lists thousands of ads for old cars and old car parts. You might find just what you're looking for.

RAY: And if you don't, take out an ad of your own. But I'd offer cash, Wanda, not hugs. No sense scaring people off.
