Christmas the Totalcarmagazine way

Sipi is a fairy who hangs above us like a huge, ever-smiling, men’s fragrance-smelling umbrella. He can be called anytime, anywhere to lend a helping hand, and he’ll be there in an hour with one of his Transits for sure. A dangerously maniac car collector (the street in front of his house is full of his vehicles), a radio-control and model car freak, Sipos is a Swiss knife made of human flesh. Totalcar is just one job amongst his zillion occupations, but he endears it the most. Lives with a girlfriend and two dogs.

We don't do anything the usual way. Why would we celebrate Christmas like everybody does?

Transporting the Christmas tree is always a challenge for everyone. Most people put it in the trunk or use the roofrack. But we at Totalcarmagazine like to do things our own way. Zsolt crammed a 2.5 metre Christmas tree in his Autobianchi Bianchina Panoramica already carrying a family of four. Luckily the Bianchina has a ragtop, so it was left to poke out the cars roof. If the Bianchina could make it into the living room, they might as well use it as a tree stand.


I used my veteran police bike to transport a tree. Well, I was cheating as I only did it for show. I wanted to test whether a fully decorated Christmas tree could be transported on a motorbike and the answer is yes. I rode the bike for two days with the unusual load on the radiotray. I covered around 100 kilometres, sometimes with speeds exceeding 100 km/h. So, should you have no suitable car for transporting a Christmas tree, just use your motorbike.


Enjoy our photographs and have a wonderful Christmas!

A forgotten hero

Every nation has its pre-war motorsport heroes from Bernd Rosemeyer to Tazio Nuvolari. Hungary can also boast one: László Hartmann, who died 75 years ago in a tragic racing accident.
