Christmas Cars


In the vast history of graffiti there is simply no single train that one can point to and say that was the first Christmas car – however – the Blade snowman comes pretty close. It was painted in early December 1974 and helped propel him towards whole cars. In the mid-70′s the Wanted crew did many thematic cars, Halloween, Christmas, the Bicentennial – it was all grist for the mill. Of course Lee took it a step further by doing two adjoining Christmas cars with the names of the Fab 5 in 1977. After that Christmas cars became more common place, reaching a pinnacle with Seen and Jason’s Happy Holiday’s car from the early 80′s. Enjoy the images and have a great holiday!
