Merry Christmas from The MuscleCar Place and have a Happy New Year!


Santa Claus himself, not necessarily sitting in his favorite muscle car ever.

S. Claus, Esquire

This week, our annual year-end guest was back on the show again. He’s known far and wide by many names: Old Saint Nick, Pere Noel, etc., but we all know him best as the one and only Santa Claus! I’m starting to think that he actually looks forward to these interviews, and if I didn’t know better I’d swear he practiced up a bit this time.  This marks Santa’s 7th annual appearance on our show (previous shows included Episode 28, Episode 67, Episode 114, Episode 160, Episode 197 and Episode 233), and as always he was in top form.

Of course, one of the big reasons that we have Santa on each year is to see if he’ll divulge how he actually makes it round the world in a single night. I’ve been after him for years to divulge the sleight modifications he’s made….and this time he finally spilled the beans! As you’re looking for a little humor to enjoy while your drive from family visit to family visit this Christmas, this show should give you 45 minutes of solid fun.

If you’d like to track Santa’s path on Christmas Eve, simply visit to watch his progress in real-time!

Thanks for the interview, Santa!  Talk to you in 2016!

The Real Reason for the Season

Of course, I’d be remiss if we didn’t talk about the REAL reason for the season, and that of course if the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. If the hustle and bustle of Christmas has you missing the point of it all, not to worry. Linus Van Pelt helped Charlie Brown with the same question a long time ago, so I’ll take his lead here and read Luke 2: 8-14.

If you’ve been meaning to learn more about why that’s significant, or perhaps it’s something you walked away from a long time ago, know that you can always come home….and Christmas would be a terrific time to do it!


Thank YOU!

This is the last podcast from The MuscleCar Place for 2015. Thank YOU for listening all year long, and helping me chase the dream of loving old cars for a living. See you in 2016!

Merry Christmas from The MuscleCar Place and have a Happy New Year!
