December brings us one of the most famous & seldom seen rides in Cal-Rods. It is the 1851 Studebaker Sleigh of Nick & Merry Claus.   Nick has had the Studebaker for many years & during that time he has made lots of changes.  He has run it stock, he has run it without wheels, he has run it with wheels, he has powered it with hay burners, & he has powered it with nitro-methane. The following pictures will show you the original Studebaker Sleigh & some of the many modifications he has made over the years.   Nick doesn't do a lot of shows or travel too far, but much to the delight of children everywhere, there is one show he does every year that involves a little traveling, (349,576,043 miles). This show starts at midnight & ends just before daylight every December 25th. Nick has never missed this show for those who have been nice.  Nick has lots of ideas for the future of his ride & plans to keep it in Cal-Rods for many years.

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL

AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT
