12 Cars of Christmas – #10 C10 in a Winter Wonderland

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 – #10

This winter adventure has it all! A road trip in a classic vehicle (a pretty sweet unrestored longbed C10 with a cool Trillium vintage camper in tow), braving severe winter elements, and a couple young guys making the trek. Cousins Daniel and Alex Jackett headed Northwest from their hometown of Fenelon Falls, Ontario to move Daniel to Steinbach, Manitoba – a 1,857 km (1,154 miles) journey in just three days!

You have check out the video to really appreciate the true joy these guys had on the open road! It appears it wasn’t without a fair share of hardships – an old, carbureted engine in blistering-cold temperatures isn’t the best combo…but in the end, the trip was a safe success!

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.
