Several years ago we noticed, on Christmas morning, that our neighbors across the street had a brand new car in their driveway. It had a huge red bow tied to it -- just like you see in the commercials on TV. This gift had everyone's attention because we lived in a primarily blue-collar working class neighborhood. New cars weren't all that common.
As we prepared to open our gifts, we kept glancing out our front window waiting for the big moment. Sure enough we heard a squeal and got to see our neighbor's wife jumping up and down while hugging her "Santa." We opened the door and hollered, "Someone got a very merry Christmas!" It was a wonderful moment to see and share.
It got me thinking about The Cars of Christmas Past.
While visiting our family in Georgia during Thanksgiving, I spied these relics and snapped a picture. I got to wondering if one of them had been in someone's driveway on Christmas morn with a big red bow? Did the family gather around their new International and then jump in to take it for a Christmas spin? Did any of you ever get a car for Christmas?
