    I'd say Glen ran what could be called a "high volume, low sales" used car lot.

    The old location 1950s to 2003 off of Padaro Lane, Carpenteria,CA


    Hey V,
    Yes, it is a sad part when traditions don’t last long for the next generation to enjoy. The destruction and move was supposedly an improvement. Was it? Last year during Thanksgiving in 2017, we drove right near that new location on the freeway in Oxnard. We missed seeing it as our turn off from Highway 1 was a couple of blocks away to the North. On the way home, we just did not see it as we went to Las Posas to Highway 1 for a change of scenery.

    New location from 2003 to today…

    “After barely surviving the destruction of Santa Claus Lane by developers last year, the 20-ft. tall plaster Santa will be displayed in a vacant lot next to a mobile home park in Nyeland Acres. The statue should be visible off Highway 101 between Camarillo and Oxnard. 2801 Ventura Blvd. between Rice Road and Del Norte exits.”

    This year during 2018 Thanksgiving, we were on Highway 126 coming from Simi Valley to Ventura and points North. So, again, we missed that giant statue. On the way home, we took Oxnard Blvd through the old part of Oxnard to see our favorite old store: the Asahi Market on 7th St. (It was respite from the long drive from OC, and/or a food and drinks stopover from Goleta ) Maybe next year, we will stop at that Santa Statue location for a photo or two.

    This is the best history and explanation of the demise of the big giant Santa Claus from Santa Claus Lane in Carpenteria. https://enchantedamerica.wordpress.com/2014/08/31/roadside-santa-oxnard-ca/

    Here is a vintage postcard from the 1950s-'60s.

    Where did the old partner, the “Giant Snowman”: go after being removed from Santa Claus Lane?
    2003: “Tom Merkel is a collector, in the most basic and inclusive sense. He recently “rescued” the towering Frosty the Snowman from Santa Claus Lane, giving it permanent residence keeping watch over a sea of old Buicks, Cadillacs, and Lincolns.”

    Now: “Artist Tom Merkel’s Cuyama Historical Car Garden in Northern California—a memorial to the men of machines and the machines of men—is unique.”
