“We’re kicking off our fun old fashion family Christmas by heading out into the country in the old front-wheel drive sleigh to embrace the frosty majesty of the winter landscape and select that most important of Christmas symbols.” — Clark W. Griswold
We can thank the National Lampoon’s “Vacation” movie series for introducing the world to the phrase Family Truckster.
Since the original film’s 1983 release, the term Family Truckster has evolved in pop culture to include station wagons, cars, trucks, and anything else that’ll fit a 40-foot Christmas tree (or Aunt Edna) on the roof.
So we used #FamilyTruckster as our search term in our regular dive through Instagram this month.
Our selections might be based on photos we liked, stories that moved or amused us, or maybe just because we liked the truckster in the photo. It’s a chance for you to see what your fellow gearheads are up to and maybe get some ideas for your next project.
