Samaritan Santa Pulls Man From Burning Car

As far as car-related heart worming stories to go well with the holiday spirit, they don’t get much better than this! Former volunteer fire-fighter Brad Luddeke was on his way to deliver toys to children in need dressed in a Santa suit when he saw a burning pickup and immediately jumped into action.
But the story brought forward by the Jolly suite is even deeper and more touching than that. The man who he pulled from the burning Ford Explorer Sport Trac is actually the father and his daughter was really good friends with Luddeke’s son, who died in an accident seven years before.

The Samaritan Santa then began directing traffic around the burning Ford until emergency responders arrived. No one was seriously harmed in the incident.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
