12 Cars of Christmas – #4 1955 Nomad in the Snow

Editor’s Note: We’re getting into the Holiday Spirit this year! Sometimes the littlest things can bring a big smile to your face, and that’s exactly where this 12 Cars of Christmas idea came from. I was scrolling through some of my favorite social media outlets and Christmas-inspired hot rods kept popping up in my feed. I decided to reach out to some of these owners, do a little investigating on my own, and bring you (in no specific order) 12 Cool Cars that really took the holiday festivities to another level!

12 Cars of Christmas – #4

Roger and Yvonne Nunn’s 1955 Nomad is no stranger to the road. The Lincoln, Nebraska-based Chevy has traveled thousands of miles taking the Nunns to events around the country, including the Goodguys Southwest Nationals in Scottsdale more than once. It’s a great calling card for Roger’s business, AutoGraphics, and uses tried-and-true components like a 350c.i. small-block V8 backed by a 700R4, dropped spindles and disc brakes, and American five-spoke wheels.

Roger and Yvonne’s daughter, Alanna Crawford, works in the marketing department at Speedway Motors and helped talk Roger into taking the vintage wagon out in the snow a couple years ago for some seasonal photos for holiday ads. The old Nomad looked right at home out in the elements – and even better with a Christmas tree hanging out of the tailgate! Can you think of a better vehicle for hauling home the decorations and holiday cheer?
