1981 Delorean DMC-12

October is upon us. It is the month of sweatshirts, pumpkin spice everything, fall driving tours, and, of course, Halloween. What are you dressing up as this year? Why not go all out? Rent a car and be the costume party star! We have curated a list of top cool cars to compliment your Halloween ensemble.

Embark on a good olde family vacation -1971 Ford Country Squire

1972 Ford Country Squire Wagon

This Halloween, embark on an epic candy crusade to Wally World that the whole family will enjoy. This costume consists of the 1980s and ’90s casual wear that you can source at your local thrift store. The original Wagon Queen Family Truckster is on a 1979 Ford Country Squire that was subject to a ridiculous makeover. It represented the gaudiest design cues that the 70s had to offer, from its faux-wood paneling to its over-the-top custom grill sporting eight headlights. While this 1972 Ford lacks the gaudiness, anyone who owns a vintage station wagon will tell you of the National Lampoon’s Family Vacation references that come with it. Join the fun and make this Halloween the best your family has ever had!

Make your Halloween epic with Eleanor -1968 Ford Mustang

This Halloween, assemble your ragtag candy-eating crew and don a black leather blazer and black shades. Embark on an epic high-octane date with Eleanor and drive the unicorn car from your childhood. Just make sure Eleanor makes it to the docks by morning!
