Dec 22: Santa time again

"Santa Claus is coming to town!"
Isn't tradition wonderful? Santa cruising the skies of our vast planet in his little sleigh, pulled by those amazingly talented reindeer, none of whom ever seem to age. Must be the Christmas magic at work, since I dare say, Amazon would find Santa's feat hard to match, even with their fleet of drones. Debating the reality of Mr. S. Claus and his magical abilities should be left for another time and place, maybe over a beer during the Summer heatwaves, so let's finish off the year with something Christmasy, yet car related. Ok?

How about we browse thru a few Christmas cards.........that traditional way of saying we remember who you are, but were too busy during the year to contact you. Let's check out a few with neat car pics. This one from Zagato looks like a keeper to me..........


You know that you'll never see a car like they show under your tree, but isn't Christmas about dreaming? Maybe next year, they will be kind enough to drop the bow, so you can get a real good look at that Zagato model in the foreground?

Old cars are always ending up on cards. Reminiscent of an old time Christmas? Or just dreaming of the way things used to be or at least used to be when tinted (or tainted?) by nostalgia.......



Ah yes, nothing says Christmas like an old car (I guess). So feeling very nostalgic today, why don't I show one more holiday greeting featuring a golden (in this case red) oldie.....


But as we all know, this time of year is about more than just old cars and a holiday background......


Look closely and you'll see that this card from (well, you can read), is a holiday greeting, but for me it's much more about those beautiful cars. And from the size of the greeting, it is for Maserati as well. From this commercial for the Italian brand to a general card from someone or company in England, highlighting a few of that country's past triumphs (no pun intended)........


Ah, isn't tradition wonderful? Good times, good friends and a few great old and new cars. Could it possibly be any better? Sure, it could, just add a little bit of tacky glitz to brighten up the holiday........ 


And so it comes the time to close out my blogs for 2016 and to wish all my readers a very happy holiday. Enjoy the break, dream cars and hope to have you back here in the new year.

Until January 4th.........

  1. Hi Barry. It's been a while since I've been on your site. I've been busy getting things organized in my own projects and that's taken ALL of my spare time. I love the old cards with the vintage cars and RVs. I've been tempted to used some of the photos from my collection and bring out some cards of my own. I thank you for your posts and wish you the best of the season and may the New Year be healthy and prosperous. From our house to yours: Merry Christmas! George & Mikenzie
