Editor’s Note: We’re getting into the Holiday Spirit this year! Sometimes the littlest things can bring a big smile to your face, and that’s exactly where this 12 Cars of Christmas idea came from. I was scrolling through some of my favorite social media outlets and Christmas-inspired hot rods kept popping up in my feed. I decided to reach out to some of these owners, do a little investigating on my own, and bring you (in no specific order) 12 Cool Cars that really took the holiday festivities to another level!

12 Cars of Christmas – #1

When most mom’s call their children to help them haul a larger item, it’s usually a truck or SUV to the rescue…but not when you’re Mike Finnegan. Earlier this month Finnegan uploaded this video you’ll see below to his YouTube channel, Finnegan’s Garage, and it’s nearly 30 minutes of pure entertainment!

In the video description on his YouTube channel, Mike wrote: “Mom needed her Christmas tree brought home and I needed to test drive my barn-find 1967 Pontiac Firebird aka The Rubber Duck after installing a Blower Shop 8-71 Supercharger and dual Quickfuel carburetors. So we did both. And we did burnouts with the Christmas tree on the roof of the car and it was epic!”

A lifelong car kid, Steven grew up around drag strips – his name may sound familiar because his grandfather is Bob Bunker, a Pro Mod pioneer who piloted the “Folsom Flash” ’55 Chevy from the ’70s through the ’90s. Steven’s father, Bob Bunker Jr., heads up Bunker Motorsports and is a regular in the West Coast racing scene, building chassis and race cars for more than 30 years. With genetics like that, it’s no wonder Steven has a passion for both cars and motorsports. In addition to helping his father and honing his fabrication skills at Bunker Motorsports, Steven began shooting photos at the drag strip and capturing the action with his Canon camera. He is now artfully crafting stories around the awesome machines at the shows, as well as the men and women behind them. When he's is not on the road covering events, he spends his downtime out on the water fishing, building his 1962 Chevy Nova, or cruising his 1987 GMC Suburban.
