1968 Ford Mustang sings "Silent Night" – Click above to watch video after the jump

There are plenty of reasons to love this time of year. Good food, warm garages, time with friends and family and the traditional gift exchange all go a long way toward making December a little more bearable, but for us, it's the music that really sets this season apart from the rest. Just after Thanksgiving, we start getting down to everything from traditional tunes like Bing Crosby's rendition of "Silver Bells" to slightly less conventional songs like Everclear's "I'll Be Hating You For Christmas," but we officially have a new favorite.

The creative souls at DMAX have taken the time to coax a 1968 Ford Mustang fastback out of hibernation to perform a few quick bars of "Silent Night." There aren't any details as to what's lurking under this beast's hood, but if we had to guess, we'd say it's a 302-cubic-inch V8 that's singing its heart out with the help of a little clever editing. Hit the jump to have a look for yourself, and may your holidays be filled with similar internal-combustion glory.

      Mustang is the koolest car ever made. Kind of funny l watched the king of kool in On any Sunday, Le mans & Bullitt and had a few beers after changing a wing (fender & light) on the wifes dull boring dull Pug today that some uninsured arsehole hit a few weeks ago..

      2014 can't come quick enough when we might get a global Stang in the UK, got the money in the bank waiting, the 50 year wait list time has been a tad to long for my liking.

      Awesome find. Dunno how anyone could fall asleep while that beast is wailing.

      Love the Everclear hidden track reference, too. Ever heard "Yellin' at the Xmas Tree" by Billy Idol?

      A far better Christmas Carol than Silent Night!
      That is probably the ultimate Mustang to me and 40+ years young, still such a evocative shape and sound!

      Nice, but it would have been much nicer if they built in a just a little simulated inertia to the engine to make it sound more natural.
