Fröhliche Weihnachten – Feliz navidad -Joyeux noël – Buon Natal

A substantial proportion of DTW readers celebrate Christmas on the 24th of December.


We hope that however you celebrate your day it is peaceful and pleasant. If you have had enough jollity, we have another item coming up later in the day.

  1. Season’s Greetings to all our readers, contributors and commenter’s. Thanks for your support and encouragement this past year.

  2. Sincere thanks to Richard, Eóin and Sean for what they produce on a daily basis. I haven’t found anywhere else that has the same breadth and depth of knowledge (which is lightly worn), range of subject matter ( although I feel very well informed about XJ40s and first gen Astra’s!) and genuine passion for cars. Thanks guys and Happy Christmas.

  3. I’ll temporarily put aside my Calvinist distaste for the pagan consumption ritual opportunistically hijacked by the Roman church in the fourth century, and wish everybody here a Happy Christmas, and more importantly a good and peaceful 2017.

    There – that wasn’t too hard.

    Now to that red car with the Christmas tree through it. It’s been bugging the hell out of me since I got a Christmas card with the same picture last week. It’s almost a Fiat 500 but clearly isn’t. There’s a gaucheness to the styling which suggests Eastern European, or one of the contraptions the humiliated Germans were reduced to driving in the 1950s. Yet nothing quite fits, and I’ve checked the Goggomobils and Gutbrods, Maicos and Mikruses, Wendaxes and Zaporozhets.

    Perhaps it’s just a construct of an artist’s imagination, but it seems too convincing.

    1. The background has American traffic lights and US fire-code escapes hanging off the front facades. Is it Photoshop?
      And happy Christmas!
