Santa's Daily Driver

Look what I found at Lowe's the other day – Santa’s other sled!  You know the one he drives the other 364 days of the year.

Ok, well, it might not be Santa’s, one mark against it is, it is not red.   But you have to agree with me – it is definitely a sled!  A big ole’s Chevy Caprice wagon with mega Dubs.

And it was at the mall – he could have been doing returns at Target like I was, I mean, the WORLD is a lot of ground to cover in one night, you could miss a house or two.  Plus kids could become bad AFTER he has loaded the sled – thus making them ineligible for presents and creating a need for returns.  

And if you were going to return a ton of presents, certainly you could fit them in the back of this spacious wagon – with the easy access rear hatch, low to the ground.  Ok the wheels make it a bit higher, but it is lower to the ground than a Cadillac Escalade, which of course would be what Mrs. Santa must drive up there in the North Pole.  At least that’s what I think she would drive.  

Plus, I’m sure this badass Caprice drives like a Sled, ahem, I mean Sleigh.  These old beauties have floating boat like style rides, no European (i.e. German) curb hugging handling here - and that’s certainly not a bad thing.  When it’s built like a boat, it should feel like it floats, mimicking the air ride Santa gets flying through the night sky.  

Plus they have and big giant comfortable front bench seats – plenty of room for Santa’s belly and behind.

Therefore, considering all of the above, I cannot see any reason why this is NOT Santa’s daily driver and a fine classic vehicle it is.  Hohoho – Detroit style!
