Which classic would Santa drive?

By December 24, 2018 No Comments

It’s Christmas Eve and Santa is doing his final reindeer checks when disaster strikes.

Rudolph’s red nose has lost its shine meaning Santa’s sleigh will be parked up in the stable this year and there will be no presents for all the boys and girls!

Of course not, Santa is a resilient man and has a bevvy of classics that will transport him around the world before dawn breaks.

Volvo 240 Estate

When you need to deliver millions of presents then you’re going to need a large boot.

Step forward the Volvo 240, renowned for having the best boot space of any car, ever!

The 240 could also be quick, essential for visiting hundred of countries in a matter of hours, and competed successfully in touring car racing in the 1980s.

Land Rover Series 1

Nothing’s going to get in the way of Mr Claus on his present delivering mission.

So when you want a classic that will stop for nothing or no one, then you’d be hard pushed to beat the Land Rover Series 1.

This awesome off-road vehicle was originally intended for farm and light industrial use but its popularity, and some internal upgrades, saw it become a classic during its own time from 1948 to 1958.

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

OK, not technically a production classic but at some point on his global journey Santa is going to need a flying car.

Not only this, Chitty could also transform in to a boat.

The world’s most famous flying car was invented by Caractacus Potts, but in reality six Chitty’s were made for the film. We’re sure Mr Potts won’t mind if Santa borrows one for a few hours on 24th December.

DeLorean DMC-12

Should Santa be running late then the DeLorean DMC-12 could come to his rescue.

With his magical powers, he’d be able to turn his DMC-12 in to a time-travelling machine also enjoyed by Marty and Doc.

In reality, just over 8,500 DMC-12’s were ever produced between 1981 and 1983 and it was the only model produced by the car manufacturer.
