12 cylinder flattie out of an old Lincoln Zephyr. Zephyr is a light wind. That engine wouldn't be the most economical, but would look really cool. Especially with a vintage supercharger and lots of chrome.

I think you are all wrong.

I think its a supercharged 4 cylinder from a Ford Fiesta with NOS, with a bumble bee exhaust, he removed the rails,now he is rolling on 30 inch rims and 31 inch tires..

What his Reindeer get sick and die?

Besides Magic corn made the reideer fly-- so he is using either biodeisel or ethenol. Or a fusion of both with at least 500 HP. How did he get corn to grow at the north pole anyway? Or was it like the guy who grew "that special plant" in his closet in college?

I like Del's lincoln Zepher idea. I am guessing it is not a 1979 ford courier though.

It could be a navigator so he wouldn't be lost, but to fly he would have to be an aviator on his Christmas expedition. What an excursion it must be to fly around the world not losing focus on all the little kids. Trying to escape from the public eye and heat seeking missles. His chimney climbing skills could only come from a moutineer of some note. And as a world explorer of course he would have to take swimming classes from a real Marineer incase he crashed in the water.

Well whatever Santa drives it would have to pull like the mythical Greek Taurus or a wild Bronco or mustang-- not a small pinto. I am sure he wouldn't want it to growl like bobcat, or cougar- but be quiet like the bay of Monterey, or the coast of Montego.

I hope Santa has a Custom Lariat when he flies over King ranch, to protect himself from Raptors, while performing his Super duty. I just hope Santa stops at a Harley Store or a Cabella's before stoping at my house :-) You know Sata has a Fiesta then maybe a siesta on the 26th. Then rising from the ashes like a true thunderbird he starts it all over again. With the help of his elves mostly named Mark- 1 through 8
In his off time I bet he drives a GT40 the baddest boy on the block.

And the road he takes home is a Fairlane on his way to the Galaxie 500 million miles away. And if we are good we will have him back in the Futura.

I wonder what Santa brings a Matador? A new red Cape?

Santa is a real Maverick for following thruogh with this every year.

Santa is really starting to get dirty minded in his old age, he is thinking about opening up a new girly magazine operation. He is very organized, and has started alphabetizing them. He started organizing the pin up girls and started with Model A and worked his way all the way up to Model T.

How did the previously mentioned Taurus let the Matador in? I thought the matador was a AMC.

Talking about Santa's model, I wonder if one is only clothed in Capri pants.

Is Santa's sleigh a converable or a Sunliner?

I hope he watches out at my neighbors house. He may get bit by a cobra and every body knows that can lead to probe at the Drs office.
