The only way to get a tree home,,,,,

Our friend Paul, over at SVS, shows the world “the only way” to get a large Christmas tree home.

This year’s annual festive dash to collect the Christmas Tree was a little late this year; just 5 days before Christmas.

As usual, my son and I drove to a nearby country estate to choose the perfect tree, all the regular sized trees had gone, leaving only 10ft+ trees. After a great conversation with the farmer and some festive bartering, we ended up with a rather lovely 11ft Christmas tree.

It’s part of the tradition to get one a little too tall but we persevered, dropped the hood on the Aero convertible, lowered the passenger seat, and in it went, ok, so it may have been hanging over the boot slightly, but this is England, it’s ok to be eccentric.

Heater and seats on full, we triumphantly returned home, the smell of the pine needles and crisp blue sky adding to the joy of a topless Winter’s drive – perfect.

Happy Christmas everyone.

I never thought of the 9-3 cabriolet as a transport vehicle, but what a practical evidence!

Beautiful example BTW, this car made me a Saab nut nearly 2 decades ago (more precisely it was the cabriolet from “As good as it gets”, but this Aero conv model – in the shown color – became the paragon flagship shortly thereafter. And to this day, I can’t say I’ve come off the stuff, really! 🙂

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone of us!

Maybe not the ONLY way, but definitely looks like the BEST way! Merry Christmas.

Every year I have the chance to educate the local Christmas tree guy about the merits of a hatchback. There are always amazed that my Viggen easily swallows up a 7 feet tree.
Merry Christmas from Long Island!

Yes, you don’t need a SUV or estate or whatever, just a vert !
