Party time

Football season is upon us. The weather is getting colder, children are back in school, and people all over the country are busy trying to figure out if their fantasy picks are going to be good this year or make them cry like little babies. One hugely important aspect of football season though is tailgating, and we're here to bring you five ideal cars for the pre-game grilling festivities.

What we have here is a collection of cars and trucks that meet the needs for every tailgating party you’ll have this upcoming season. Between cars with built-in coolers, things with split-folding tailgates, and one with a built in picnic table, these are some of the best cars and trucks we could find that meet all your tailgating needs.

1967 Caprice Wagon

The 5 Best Cars For Tailgating

The 1967 Caprice Wagon is the perfect tailgating car. First off, the Caprice can seat up to seven people thanks to its third row jump seats. It will also fit in everywhere you go since it has classic muscle car styling. The Caprice also has a folding tailgate that lets you take a load off while you’re flipping burgers. It is quintessentially the American tailgate car. However, if you want storage, look no further than our second option. Ram 1500 with Rambox  

The 5 Best Cars For Tailgating

Not only do you get a Ram 1500 that can haul, tow, or run over just about everything on the road, but it also has seating for five, and bed to throw all your tailgating necessities into. What more could you ask for? How about two storage bins built into the sides of the bed that you can fill up with ice and beer? Well, with the optional Rambox, you can!

The 5 Best Cars For Tailgating

Used by the British aristocracy, and by rappers everywhere, the Range Rover would deliver you in quiet grace to the stadium, champagne chilling, and with enough sound deadening to drown out all the drunken Bears fans still reliving the 1985 Super Bowl. However, if you want to get loud, Range Rover offers a 1700-watt Meridian stereo system with 29 speakers that will have you believe you’re on the 50-yard line. With that in mind, only a few people can come with you in all of these cars, that isn’t true with our next choice. RELATED: See More Images of the Land Rover Range Rover A Bus  

The 5 Best Cars For Tailgating

Whether it’s a converted school bus, a regular school bus you stole from the district, or a coach bus, a bus will also have the ability to bring you and your twenty closest friends to the game. It also offers up enough space to bring a grill, a small pool, and enough beer, burgers and pizza to feed part of the stadium. It’s perhaps the perfect tailgating machine. Subaru WRX STI

Long has the Subaru WRX STI been a rally fans' favorite car of choice. The stupendous AWD system makes the tuner car a rally weapon in any slippery situation. But did you know that the rear wing on most STI’s were actually built so you can use them as a picnic table? Of course you didn’t, but you can! All you do is slide your legs under the wing, drop your burger and your beer down, and you’ve got the perfect table and chair built into your car. Tailgating is an essential part of football season, and any of these cars and trucks would make an perfect tailgating companion. Nevertheless, we’d like to know if we’ve missed any? Is there a better tailgating car or truck than the ones we posted above? Let us know in the comments below. RELATED: See More Photos of the Subaru WRX STI
