Father’s Day is just a couple of days away, but you still have time to find your Dad the perfect gift. After all, very possibly he’s the one who taught you how to drive, how to use a manual transmission and how to lovingly wash and repair your car. Why not offer him something special so he can spend some quality time behind the wheel?
For those who may not have the means to surprise Pop with a new Audi A4 or Ford F-150 – we’ll go out on a limb and assume that’s most of us! – we’ve put together some more realistic suggestions that are affordable yet sure to warm his heart. Also, did you know that many auto manufacturers, like Jeep and Porsche for instance, have their own online boutique where you can buy a wide range of accessories and other branded products?
Here are our Top 5 Father’s Day gift ideas for car enthusiasts:
Advanced driving course
By signing him up for a performance driving course, you’ll gave your Dad a chance to learn about the art of approaching and attacking turns, and about weight transferring, braking and much more. It may be the only time in his life he ever ventures out onto a race track, but the skills he acquires will serve him out in the real world.
You can find affordable single-day courses; some involve him using his own car, while other driving schools supply a sporty car. Come great options include the Mercedes-Benz or AMG Driving Academies, the Porsche Sport Driving Academy, or if off-roading is more his thing, the Land Rover Experience Driving School.
