pring Break is fast approaching. Time to leave behind the life of debauched revelry occasionally interrupted by classes, homework, and exams that is your college life, and enjoy a few weeks of totally uninterrupted debauched revelry in a much warmer climate.
But as they say, it’s not about the destination; it’s about the journey. Well in this case that’s utter nonsense, it’s totally about the destination, but that doesn’t mean the journey can’t be fun too. So if you’re going to be driving to your spring break bacchanal this year, you might as well do it in comfort and style.
Here’s our pick for the best wheels to get you to wherever it is that you’re going, where you’ll surely get too drunk to stand upright, let alone drive. So don’t forget where you park, or you may never get home.
Best Car For Guys: Mustang GT Convertible
The Mustang is the ultimate bro-mobile. It’s fast, it’s loud, and it’s highly impractical. You’ll spend a fortune on gas, but the extra fun will be worth it. With its 5.0-liter V8 (and you want to pay extra for the V8, trust us), 18-inch wide-spoke rims, and that classic Mustang growl, it’s the car that says, “Ladies, we have come for your virtue! Get in!” Plug in your iPhone to the premium sound-system, drop the top, crank up “Low Rider,” and watch heads turn.
Just make sure your shoes and bag match the paint color.
Best Car For Girls:
We ridin' blades, Jags, and Escalades, we third coast born but always gettin' paid.
Best Car For A Mobile Party: Cadillac Escalade
If you’re road tripping with your crew, you need lots of room, and lots of entertainment opportunities to keep all those man-children occupied on the journey. The Escalade has it all — it seats up to eight, it’s got rear-seat DVD screens, SiriusXM satellite radio, a Bose 5.1-surround sound system, and street cred up the ying-yang, especially if you opt for the 22-inch chrome aluminum wheels, which you will.
Not the sexiest vehicle, but you can hold several kegs in the bed.
Best Practical Car: Honda Ridgeline
If you care more about practicality and spending less money on petroleum and more on Patron, the Ridgeline could be your stealth party-mobile. It seats up to five comfortably, and with its under-seat storage and clever half-truck-bed/half-trunk configuration, it’s got room for your luggage, and all the party supplies you might need to bring.
The car that says, "I am Elmer J. Fudd, millionaire. I own a mansion and a yacht.".
Best Car For Being Something You’re Not: Rented Lamborghini Murcielago
If your game involves pretending to be a one-percenter in order to snag the rich boy or girl of your dreams, seek out one of the many companies that rents supercars and get yourself a $450,000 Murcielago for a day or two. There’s nothing like an Italian supercar with scissor doors and a 6.0-liter V12 engine that tops out at 205 mph for making an unforgettable first impression.
