Merry Christmas!

Christmas is upon us. We've had a great season of car shows, events, and more, but now it's time to spend some time with family and friends, and do something a little less car-related.

Or is it?

I know when I was a kid, I always looked forward to getting some kind of model car, toy car, slot car, Matchbox car ... well, you get the idea. I really never could get enough of this stuff. 

And even today, when I look for Christmas gifts, especially for my dad or son, I'm still searching for the perfect car gift. I may even get something for my wife's car this year. Don't tell her--but she's gonna' love it! OK, maybe not.

At any rate, I'm really not doing anything very car-related this week worth writing about.  I'm driving some new cars that I plan to write reviews about soon, and there are some car museums that I'll be writing about soon, but there isn't a lot going on today.

I'm not going to leave you high and dry, though. Just in time for Christmas, I'll leave you with a couple of slideshows--red cars and green cars from car shows and events all over Kansas City.

I really appreciate everyone who stops by here throughout the year. I hope you all have a great Christmas!


  1. Merry Christmas to you and yours too, Mr Hover. Here's to a happy, healthy and prosperous new year also. Cheers!
    [and I still give/get car stuff at Christmas too.. :) ]

    I too can remember ALL those Christmases past that included SOME type of car..even the riding PEDAL CARS...LOL.
    (the Aurora HO slot cars were ALWAYS a treat...!)

    My, how those WERE the days.
    Thanks SO much for recalling the history and Americana that is the automobile.

    DO have yourself a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS.

  3. Craig,
    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your families !

    For me car "stuff" really didn't start til about age 50 or so.

    pressure up and flowing at a good clip for all of us....THANKS !
