These classic cars weren't your typical vessels. They were more decorative pieces. My grandfather Joe has a massive collection of Christmas ornaments that happen to be antique cars.
As a youngster I would spend every Saturday with my grandpa Joe. On those weekends we would go, "sailing" (which was code for shopping at yard sales) for new ornaments. Some weekends were more daunting than others. Imagine being a seven year old kid shopping in June for Christmas gifts, not the most eventful weekend.
I stuck it out weekend after weekend. There were many times gramps would let me pick out my own ornaments for the tree. He told me those cars were for my section only.
I took pride knowing I had my own area on grandpa's Antique Car Christmas tree. I started to have a different perspective on our "sailing" trips. They meant something more to me.
