OCW holiday gift ideas for the gear head

Publish date:

Hard to believe, but yes, the holidays are upon us. We get lots of cool Christmas and other holiday gift ideas, and we've already published several in Old Cars Weekly. Here are a few good ideas for fellow gear heads that didn't hit our mailbox before the deadline:

Studebaker Christmas cards

Old Cars Weekly and Studebaker International Inc. teamed up for one of the Christmas cards in the Studebaker part and accessory company's catalog. The 1953 Starliner on the cover once belonged to OCW's own Ken Buttolph, and the image appeared eons ago on the cover of OCW. Studebaker International charges $19.95 for a set of 20 1953 Studebaker Starliner Christmas cards, and if a '53 Stude isn't your style, check out the company's plentiful line of other cards here.
