I just found 6 of the Holiday Classics for 2006. As always they have asorted coolness to all the castings but this year they only show 8 for a set instead of 12, thats kinda a bummer. Oh well Iam way ahead this year so hopefully I can find the last 2 in stores rather than the ebay thing to collect the whole set again. I thought I had all the sets they made until I seen this

For 2005 they show 13 cars. Did I miss one last year?! How could this happen!?
Happy Holidays and Classics too, Dave

odd they used the Tucker again (3rd time it's been a Holiday Classic, IIRC).
Mac Ragan addressed this once upon a time, or maybe it was in some JL lit somewhere, that the Tucker would be done every year as a Holiday Classic. Hope i'm ont putting words in anyone's mouth, but I'm sure I didn't make this up.

Jeff, you didn't make that up.
That was the word when the first Tucker came out for 2004 Holiday Classics.
That fact was in wrting and probably right here at Hobby Talk.
And Mac Ragan probably was the person who made that statement.
The Tucker is such a unique automobile. I am happy that JL made it as a casting.
I have been collecting all the colour variations and look forward to each new one as
it is released. My favorite is the red chrome one.
The colour of the one issued this year may not be the best choice, but I still will
collect it. And the tires will be a unique feature just like the one from last year.
Love the chrome whether it be a Tucker or another casting.

Cheers. Cobra

BFK,
I have extras of some of the past ornaments. If interested, PM me and I can look at them and give you a list of what I have.

I personally have all sets from 2000 on including Coke Automents. Can't wait to put up the tree this year.
