Canoes To Christmas Trees: What Have You Hauled With A Classic Car?
The holiday season is well and fully upon us, and between all the last-minute gift trips and traffic caused by everyone driving up to Grandma’s house, we end up using our cars to carry us and everything else for the most part. A Christmas tree on the roof, a trunk full of wrapped boxes, and the whole family squashed into the backseat is a common trope that’s spawned many a movie about the joys of shlepping these festive payloads across interstates and country lanes alike, but it’s not like these are the only occasions where our cars take on the tasks of pack mules. The infamous photo of the Porsche 911 with the lit tree on its roof will no doubt make another round of appearances on just about every car site this year, but it’s not like we don’t strap on canoes and tow hitches during the warmer months out of the year.
So we want to know, what’s the strangest pile of stuff you’ve hauled in your classic car? It doesn’t have to be the heaviest or the least gainly thing, just anything that made you take a step back in bemusement. Tow a boat with your ‘Benz? Take your Alfa on Home Depot runs? Still use your 2CV for lugging farm equipment? Tell us about the time you ditched the modern 4×4 for something with a bit more style, we want to hear your stories! Even if it’s just a simple bike rack.
