[PICS] Step Back in Time With These Past Christmas Celebrations From GM Design


New cars seem to be linked to the Christmas holidays as vehicles with big red bows on them are frequently spotted rolling down the roads at this time of year.

GM Design has been getting into the holiday spirit itself, recently posting on its Instagram page a group of three interesting photos unearthed from its archives that show past celebrations in the GM Design lobby.

Of course, our favorite photo shows what appears to be a red 1964 Corvette convertible, flanked by two Christmas trees and a pair of Poinsettias, with large plastic snowflakes hanging overhead and plastic streamers dangling in front of the huge windows in the room.

Another photo, perhaps from Christmas 1956, shows a 1957 Cadillac Series 62 convertible, flanked by a Series 62 coupe farthest from the camera and a Chevrolet Nomad and a Buick Roadmaster in the foreground.

The last picture shows six large nutcrackers accompanying a 1962 Oldsmobile Cutlass convertible that has apparently been modified to look like a huge toy with a faux wind-up handle sticking out of the rear deck lid.

It’s always fun to go back through the years and see iconic vehicles like the C2 Corvette and these other classic GM vehicles actually captured in photos during the time when they were new.

  1. The vehicle next to the Buick Roadmaster appears to be a 57′ Pontiac Convertible and the station wagon in the front looks like a 57′ Oldsmobile Fiesta. Great pictures. Reminds me of when I made my Dad take me to all of the car dealerships in September each year to look at all the new cars. For a young motorhead, it was better than Christmas Day.

  2. I remember those “new model reveal days” back when model year to model year, the cars were significantly different. You’d see a lot of your “car” friends at the dealers on reveal nights and then we’d all gather the next morning at school and talk about all the “really neat” cars we saw the night before. I think the most excitement was the first night Ford put the Mustang on the showroom floor. There was nothing comparable at that time. The Road Runner also drew a large crowd.
