2010 Ford Raptor: St. Nicks New Sleigh
December 15, 2010
I love driving the Raptor. Look, we all know the concerns on size and thirst, but you have to get past that with this vehicle. It's a big, mean truck that is an absolute blast to drive.
It starts with the special grille, then gets more impressive with it's raised stance, flared wheel wells, blacked out wheels, more than capable suspension and awesome engine. The topper for me is the Baja 1000 race-like steering wheel. In fact I think this thing might be capable enough to be Santa's sleigh. Forget the reindeer. This thing can fly.
Ok, it might not be able to haul the estimated 353,000 tons or go the 650 miles per second that Santa would need to do come Christmas Eve. But I think it could work as pretty fun alternative if the sleigh went down. Your gifts may arrive slightly damaged from the impact of multiple jumps off the dunes in Glamis.
