Is your dad a Car Dad? You know the one. He’s the guy who loves cars and everything about them. He loves the way they look and the way they sound. He loves to work on them and clean them. And he absolutely loves to drive them.

The Car Dad will talk about cars to anyone who will listen. He might have a favorite car make, model, and year, or he might love all kinds of cars. Now is the best time to start finding some great gifts for the Car Dad in your life.

A Car Dad is the guy who is always up for taking a ride. He taught you how to drive. He made sure you know how to change a tire and check the oil. He taught you how to handle your car when you’re sliding on ice or hydroplaning.

A Car Dad is a guy who loves taking his family to car shows and races. He lets his kiddos help him work on his car by teaching them about the tools and how to use them. He loves spending time with his kids by putting together model cars. A Car Dad is the guy who has kids who ask people “What’s under the hood,” and “How many miles do you have on that baby?”

For Father’s Day, a Car Dad is the dad that deserves something he can use and think of you. He deserves something from your heart. You know he’ll tell you that anything you give him means the world to him. But you know what he really wants… something for his car. 

Here is a list of great gifts for the car dad in your life that will show him just how much he means to you.
