For the Car Lover in Dad... or Grandpa... or Yourself

Father’s Day is almost here, and if you’re still unsure of what to buy for your pop – or if others are on a quest for your gift – here’s a list of cool toys that might just do the trick.

Griot’s Garage always has some must-have items, like their signature car care kits, which include products for washing, polishing, waxing from starter kits to the Master Car Care Collection. 

Now is the time for the hot sun to ruin a good finish. How about a car cover to protect that prized classic? Another choice is the Sit on Creeper IV, which has a functional design to alleviate lower back strain and a comfortable seat level.

Griot’s also has an online special going on now, so hurry if you want a free 8 oz. bottle of Speed Shine with any purchase. Visit the Garage at www.griotsgarage.com.

Busted Knuckle Garage has some neat retro art pieces, like the Limited Edition Gas Pump Cookie Jar. They carry products for bikers and car nuts. The BKG “Wrench Bench” includes their one-of-a-kind logo on a distressed-look bench. They have classic signs, decals and “different” stuff that Dad might like.

You can also get the Busted Knuckle logo on T-shirts, hats, furniture and yes, even a light-switch plate. See what they have to offer at www.bustedknucklegarage.com.

Fill-er-up is an automobilia shop specializing in restoring retro gas pumps, clocks, island lights and other gas station memorabilia from long ago. They also offer life-size reproductions.

You’ll also find a couple of garage signs, including “Dad’s Garage” on their website.

At AutoSport you can find items from modular floor mats to blind-spot mirrors. A neat gift for Dad would be their Gear Clock. The gears go ‘round and revolve at their own rate and direction.

Another possibility is the Roadster cell phone adapter, which features noise reduction and a voice-activated, auto-answer function for safety. Other products include garage accessories for organization, navigation equipment and creature comforts for driving like the lumbar seat and gel cushions.
