Hemmings Motor News Blog Blog

Hemmings Motor News Blog

Hemmings Motor News has been around since 1954. We're proud of our heritage, but we're also more than the Hemmings full of classifieds that your father subscribed to. Aside from new editorial content every month in Hemmings, we have three monthly magazines: Hemmings Muscle Machines, Hemmings Classic Car and Hemmings Sports and Exotic Car.

While our editors traverse the country to find the best content for those magazines, we find other oddities related to the old-car hobby that we really had no place for - until now. With this blog, we're giving you a behind-the-scenes look at what we see and what we do during the course of putting out some of the finest automotive magazines you'll ever read.

WWSD (What Would Santa Drive)?

Posted December 31, 2019 12:00 AM by dstrohl

Editor's note: This post originally ran on Hemmings Daily on Dec. 24.

Eight tiny reindeer? As if. The dude’s obviously loaded if he can a) travel around the world on a whim, and b) give good boys and girls whatever consumer item they want. Probably because of all that elf slave labor he employs. So, if he can afford to drive anything, Santa will, as various artists and photographers have depicted him over the years.

For instance, in the above image that we came across out and about on the internet this week, Santa’s got a Bugatti and exactly one package. Guess he embezzled the North Pole profits and blew them on himself and Mrs. Claus this year.

Santa...on a motorcycle? Or in a VW Bus?

Mercedes-Benz would have us believe he drives a red MB 300.
