Some Random 2018 Automobili Ghosts for your Holidaze Dining...



Dodge's Insane Challenger Hellcat rendition of Santa's Sleigh. Definitely will get him Thar in plenty 'O time! (Image source: caranddriver.com)
As Thar All from Christmas Present, or is it Christmas Past?

Otay, Yuhs already know that 'Ol Burt Bandit' Reynolds has raced off to that Shopping Mall in the Sky, and perhaps heard that a few of his personal vehicles quickly made Thar way to thou Auction Block. But did Y'all hear what they ultimately went for?


Yet thee Bandit' wasn't the only noteworthy Celebrity who had one of his Fine Rides going underneath thou Hammer. As 'Ol Slow Hand, aka Eric Clapton, who I grew tired of seeing struttin' round various F1 grids with 'Ol Uncle Bernaughty, nee Mr. Bernard Charles Ecclestone - regularly in la Scuderia yellow polo finery... Probably Ain't feelin' too blue over letting go of one of his past Ferrari's.


Since some of us after all, will be having a Blue, Blue Christmas, Righto? Although I'm foregoing the traditional "Blue-plate Special" and opting for thou Hawaiian special Pizza for X-Mas Dinner instead...


Whilst continuing thou theme; Err colour hue 'O blue, how could I pass up an article about an unknown Dodge Charger in that ubiquitous "Petty Blue," Eh? Even though talk 'bout Chargers 'N 'cuda's in racing parlance always makes me think of Dan Gurney and his All American Racers Chrysler wares...


And speakin' of the late Daniel Sexton Gurney, how many of Yuhs know he once scorched the Brickyard's tarmac for four fully "blown" laps aboard a 1976 Buick Regal Century Pace Car, for which engineers had to replace the tortured Goodyear, or was it Flinstone' rubber? after his mock qualifying run!

Although it was actually Country Music Star and Part-time NASCAR Driver Marty Robins behind the wheel of the '76 Buick Century regal Pace Car...


And lastly, another name from thou past makes a pleasant return, even if I won't have one in thou garage anytime soon...


As lookie' Thar Mom, I managed to not scribble a single Bloody word 'bout FoMoCo' or the Blue Oval in thoust post. Whilst I'm fairly certain my ride to X-Mas Dinner won't be as enthralling as Thanksgiving's was...


And Check out Santa's latest Radd' Ride, which is Definitely an "One Up" on those regular Hellcat Challengers!


Whilst watch out Y'all, GrandMaMa's behind thou wheel!
