I used my 1929 Chrysler 75 roadster one year....my wife worked for John Deere, hence the tractor pulling the Chrysler....

Here are a few we have done over the years.

2007 with the 1948 Studebaker M5 truck:

I just found this one in some dealer stuff. Must be from the early 60's.   The names are printed inside not actually hand written.  I think it might be from Corporate Ford to the dealers as there is no dealer stamp or name mentioned anywhere.

I recall having another one of those early 60's Ford Christmas cards with a kid looking in the window of a Ford dealer or something.  Now I just have to figure out where I stuck it.

I put a photo of my Buick Reatta on a Christmas card several years ago but I never got around to printing them out.

We used to get our Christmas tree a couple of miles up the road,  but since we moved to a house with a Cathedral Ceiling the wife likes a 9 foot plus tree so we have to go alot further to get one, so I probably won't be using any of the old cars to go get one.  That and the fact we often have snow in November  along with road salt.

I'll share this non-automotive image.  A holiday greeting photo of our new (to us) house in Santa Fe with the farolitos lit and glowing on the wall. Farolitos are a traditional holiday decoration around here. Originally, they were brown paper bags filled partially with sand and lit with a votive candle, and only lit on Christmas eve. Now days, they are plastic and lit with an electric bulb and are turned on throughout the holidays. Old or new they still make a nice soft glowing light.995234700_2018Card.thumb.JPG.3c50c7287b0dc75f2d2d6bdd4353babe.JPG
