Watch as an 83-year-old retired farmer slowly discovers that his 1949 pickup has been restored. The man's son had the work done in secret as the perfect family Christmas present, and he captured the reunion moment in this heartwarming video.

'Tis the season – from all of us here at Autoblog, we wish you the happiest of holidays, and all the best during this especially festive time of year.

Jimmy Kimmel has a bit of a rivalry going with Emily Blunt and John Krasinski. Not like the "I'm on television, you're on the radio" one he has with his former Man Show co-host Adam Carolla (who of course has more to do with cars than the last name he almost shares with a Toyota economy sedan). With Blunt and Krasinski, it's more of a prank rivalry.

Our Editors Choose Their Favorite Sleds For The Season

Over the hills and through the woods, it's the time of year when many of us visit family and friends for the holidays. But getting there can be a chore. It's cold and snowy across much of the United States, and even if the climate is favorable, the drive to grandmother's house often is not.

Getting pulled over by police is seldom a pleasant experience for a motorist. And when that traffic stop comes in the middle of the holiday season, it can really put a damper on a driver's spirit. But the police department in Lowell, MI, set about changing all that.

It's been nine months since we've seen a new episode of Top Gear. That's enough time to bring a human being into the world, but with due respect to all the mothers out there (including our own), it seems like the birthing this latest special from everyone's favorite British car show has been more tumultuous. Now, after its share of thrills, spills and chills, the BBC's new baby is about ready to enter the world.

December is the best month for car sales

Every Christmas, holiday-themed car commercials spur millions to wonder 'who gives a car for Christmas?' immediately followed by 'and where do they find those big bows?'

October 31 is no longer known as Halloween, or All Saints' Eve or even as that day when all children simultaneously develop huge cavities. It's now known as the day before Christmas/holiday advertising begins. Seriously, as of November 1, it seems like companies across the country and from every industry have declared open season on holiday ad campaigns. It's all premature enough that we're already feeling our inner Grinch showing, but at least some of the ads are better done than others.

You probably had the same dream when you were a teenager. Your sixteenth birthday is coming up, or Christmas, or maybe both, and all you want is a muscle car to call your own. That dream has come true for some, and one of them was none other than Edsel Ford II.

Is it possible to cook a turkey with a Lamborghini Aventador? The answer is quite likely no, but it sure is fun to watch YouTube's supercar videographer extraordinaire Shmee150 give it a whirl. The supercar fanatic got a hold of an Aventador tuned by Oakley Design – and dressed up like Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer – to see if the car's two-foot exhaust flames could cook his Christmas turkey.

We understand. It's hard to slow down and really take in the holiday season, so it often comes and goes in a blur. That's especially so in Los Angeles, where almost everything moves fast and you feel like a face in the crowd. Determined to keep up with the fast pace and be noticed, one Santa Clause and his "elf" assistant decided to upgrade their "sleigh" - to a Lamborghini Gallardo (no reindeer needed).

We'd like to take a moment to wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas from the team at Autoblog! We hope that your Yuletide is filled with surprise and delight, loved ones and friends, food and drink and safe travels wherever you're going. (A fun car on a twisty road to Grandma's house wouldn't go amiss, either.)

Lexus just announced a previously unheard of – and unthinkable – achievement by an automaker, or any other company for that matter: saving Christmas from being ruined for all the good boys and girls!

It isn't that uncommon for people to pick up second jobs during the holidays to help relieve some of the financial stress, but apparently our automaton friends feel the fiscal pinch this time of year, too. A handful of General Motors assembly line robots are picking up some extra shifts at Santa's workshop this year wrapping presents.

The Christmas season is getting more sideways every year. Recently, Mercedes-Benz and its AMG performance division showed us a new way to cook Christmas cookies, and now rival BMW Switzerland is presenting a new way to speed up seasonal caroling. It put four members of the Zurich Acapella Group in an M135i and instructed them to sing Jingle Bells while driver Martin Tomczyk flogged the hot hatch around the Circuit de L'Anneau du Rhin at the same time.

Four Mercedes-Benz AMG engineers working on the engine of an SLS AMG GT3 in the dead of night – we're sure it's a scene that happens quite often throughout the year. But in this case, so close to the Yuletide, it turns out their prime concerns aren't horsepower and lap times but engine temperature. Specifically, everyone wants to make sure that the 6.3-liter V8 stays at 180 degrees.

If you live in the city, you know that the abundance of street lights are so bright that it's difficult to see stars in the sky even on the clearest of nights. The situation out in the country couldn't be any more different. The stars are gorgeous, but they're not nearly bright enough to illuminate rural roads.

Like so many of you, we're spending the holidays with family and friends. Regardless, we've got a few posts scheduled for you the rest of today and tomorrow; the normal daily grind resumes on Tuesday. You'll be hard-pressed to find two better links to peruse and read in your downtime today, however, then the ones we're about to show you.

Ever thought about how much CO2 is being emitted from Santa's reindeer? Neither have we, but Ford has. The folks at the Blue Oval figured out that Chris Kringle's road crew drops a knee-wobbling 214,670 tons of CO2 each year while delivering presents to 267 million homes.

'Tis the season for Christmas cards. Standing in the aisles at Hallmark or the local grocery store, spending endless hours searching for just the right bifold slip of paper to express your own vision of the Christmas Spirit for your significant other, your mom, your dad, your brothers and sisters, grandparents and that irritating guy from accounting. And then spending a ludicrous amount on the dozen cards you've collected at the checkout lane while not being completely happy with any of them. Yo
