Monster Mash: What Five Halloween Monsters Would Drive

Posted by

Werewolves, Vampires, and Witches! Oh my! Every make and model of a vehicle has unique attributes that make it the perfect fit for its driver. But when that driver is covered in hair, eight feet tall, or likes to dine on people, monster drivers need their specific car for very different reasons. We looked at five iconic Halloween monsters and imagined what vehicles each would drive.

Werewolf – Ford Bronco

A werewolf is a man who turns into a wolf at night during a full moon and then returns to human form by daytime. The werewolf would drive a Ford Bronco with the top and doors removed for easy access to its prey. The Bronco is meant to traverse the outdoors with a four-wheel-drive system. It even comes with washable rubberized floors with drains. During the day, when the werewolf transforms back into a man, the doors and top can be put back into place for a proper drive around town.

Frankenstein’s Monster – GMC Hummer EV Pickup

Victor Frankenstein is a mad scientist who creates a monster assembled from old body parts and animated by lightning. As Frankenstein tried to create a new species, his creature was 8-feet-tall and described as hideously ugly. Frankenstein’s monster would drive the GMC Hummer EV Pickup because it’s a combination of several vehicles in one and runs on electricity, which is how the beast was born. This unique new vehicle comes with a three-motor, four-wheel-drive system, along with four-wheel steering. This CrabWalk means all four wheels steer at the same angle at low speeds, giving it a unique gait just like the monster. The Hummer’s Infinity Roof, consisting of four removable roof panels, will accommodate the monster’s large stature.

Vampire – Cadillac Escalade

Vampires are immortal creatures who exist on drinking blood from humans and animals to survive. They are supernatural creatures classified as the undead and are known to manipulate their victim’s thoughts. A vampire would drive a sleek Cadillac Escalade in a blood-red color. Since vampires can’t survive in the daylight, they need to tint those windows extra dark so no sunlight can come through. The luxury brand appeals to a wealthy clientele, so the vampire driver should have no problem picking up its next victim.

Witch – Chevrolet Corvette

A witch is a woman who practices witchcraft, and she’s not always considered to be evil. Witches are known for their black magic, casting spells, and flying around on their brooms with their black cats. A witch would drive a Chevy Corvette because it’s a fast, bewitching sports car. The Corvette would have to be a manual transmission since a witch is used to driving a stick. The Corvette is known for its lightweight, high-powered, low-slung design, describing a witch flying through the air.

Zombie – Jeep Wrangler

A zombie is a reanimated dead person who dines on human flesh and typically travels in packs. Zombies would drive a Jeep Wrangler because they need a rugged, off-road vehicle. Born as a 4×4 for the front lines of World War II in 1941, Jeeps have transitioned from the battlefields to the farm fields and backroads of America, which are perfect for zombies. Today’s Jeep 4×4 boasts strong drivetrains, innovative engineering, and quality components to make it stand out from other 4×4 SUVs. Jeeps are built to overcome any road, and zombies need to traverse everywhere to look for their prey and travel. Their Jeep would have no doors as well so Zombies could stop and grab their victims quickly.

Whether you need to maneuver the back roads or need a slick city vehicle, every driver has different needs, just like monsters. What car would your favorite monster drive? Let us know in the comments. Happy Halloween!
