Here's the ride that put Rudolph, Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Donnor, Vixen and the rest of the gang in the unemployment line.

Back in early 2002, I had an idea of a new design for Santa to make his overnight trip in half the time !


In the beginning.

After about a year of digging in drawers around the house, in my scrap box of spare diecast car parts, and around the garage for anything I could use to put this project together, it finally came to a completion date of January 14, 2003

From a block and sheet of plastic !
After several hours of carving and sanding, the body was beginning to take shape !
Lookin' good !
A few months had passed and I began work again. It took awhile to figure a traction set up to get Santa through the snow. I came up with this idea !
Takin' Shape !

After many moons of placing parts and changing designs, I came up with this basic design !

Almost ready for a paint job

Now to design a front ski set up for the steering 

 

Test drive a success !

Santa came by the shop for a test flight that went very well. Santa was very pleased. The nitrous system with the bottles mounted on the sides that could also be used for a step up, should cut his delivery time almost in half !

Gas Money?

Now to figure a way to collect some extra gas money for the famous midnight run!

Ring~a~ding~ding

If ya hear Sanat's bell ringing, please be generous! 

Every little bit will help!

Almost ready to fly !

Sleigh runs extremely well. It will turn 8:75 in the quarter mile. It still seems to have a small problem with the gas mileage though !

The Christmas Rush !

Now on display

I purchased this Hot Wheels Millennium set and removed the Space Shuttle, and replaced it with the Christmas Rush

One of a kind set

Repackaged and makes a very nice, one of a kind display
