It’s #FlashbackFriday again and we found an amazing piece of Santa Claus Land history to share with you.
This is the “Chrysler TV Caravan,” with a commercial touting their 1955 “hundred-million-dollar gift” – a new Chrysler!
Don’t miss Santa Jim waving at the end. (He’s one of our 4th generation owners’ great-grandfathers.)
Of course, this is usually his vehicle of choice:
In this photo, Santa and his sleigh are in front of his family’s Chateau restaurant in nearby Mariah Hill. A more modern version is still there.

I loved the Chrysler Commercial. It’s great to see that santa clause land which is what I called it growing up in the 70’s is still going strong today and that’s because of wonderful leadership. Thank You
