Santa Claus brings plenty of gifts to people around the world. Our VroomVroomVroom customers sometimes share cool stories with us on Facebook and Twitter about their dream cars, and about rental cars they wish they could keep driving year-round! Sometimes, the jolly ol’ elf gets a little help from famous celebrities. Here are our Top 3 Christmas Cars (Received as Gifts From a Celebrity)!
You’ve probably seen “The Rock” in great movies like “Fast & Furious 6” and “G.I. Joe: Retaliation”, as well as in the wrestling ring last April at “Wrestlemania 29”, but did you know that before Dwayne Johnson ever acted or wrestled, his family struggled to make ends meet? Now that he’s rich and famous, he does a lot of good things with his wealth. He and his wife have donated millions to the University of Miami (where they met), and they also created The Dwayne Johnson Rock Foundation, a charity for terminally ill kids! But one of the most special things Dwayne has done was on Christmas 2012, when he posted this photo to Facebook:
“At 14 I saw my mom crying about our only car being repossessed. This felt good. Merry Christmas mom,” Dwayne wrote after gifting his mother this brand-new, white Cadillac SUV. Wow!
In 2013, Dwayne’s movies grossed $1.3 billion at the global box office, and he was named the Top-Grossing Actor for the Year by Forbes! We don’t know if he bought anyone dear to him a special gift this year, but we wouldn’t be surprised.
Just a couple of months ago, 36-year-old champion boxer Floyd Mayweather wanted to be sure Santa Claus didn’t have to bring him what he wanted most for Christmas. So Floyd bought it for himself! The 45-0 undefeated professional fighter posted the photo above to Instagram…
“2014 Rolls Royce Wraith. I bought myself an early Christmas gift. If you work you hard, you can play hard. That’s what WINNERS do. That’s what @mmg513__ said..”, wrote Mayweather.
Back in 2011, pop singer Justin Bieber gave a memorable Christmas gift to his childhood friend Ryan Butler. The singer of “Baby” surprised his friend with a brand new Ford Mustang convertible. “Justin got me a present. #swag!!!,” Butler tweeted, along with the picture above.
VroomVroomVroom wants to take this moment and wish all of our customers, employees, and family around the world Happy Holidays!
