For just $10, you can give your dad a year-long subscription to Road & Track Magazine where he can stay up to date on the latest cars coming out and also enjoy some of the best automotive journalism out there. He’ll just need to find a little peace and quiet first…
You’re never really too old to play with LEGOs and even we bet even your dad will want to build these cool Porsche race cars or any number of other motorsports-themed LEGO sets currently available. Although this Porsche 911 GT race car set is about $85, you can find plenty of other cool car-related sets from anywhere from $15 all the way up to about $300 for the huge Porsche GT3 RS or Ferrari F40 sets.
$100-350/day – Morrie’s Heritage Car Connection Rental
If your dad always talks about wanting to drive one of his dream cars but your mom won’t let him buy one, you could surprise him with a day or a weekend in one of our 30 vintage rental cars. Our curated collection of cars has a little something for everyone, from classic cruisers and vintage muscle cars to timeless SUVs and modern sports cars. And if you can’t find anything you think he’d like, at least pick up a hat or a t-shirt for the guy!
We’re sure your dad is always in time but just in case, you might want to consider getting him a cool automotive-themed watch like this Autodromo Stradale. Available in 3 different color combos, all with a reliable Japenese-made automatic movement, it’s a beautifully made watch that will never go out of style. This two-tone dial version with the dark brown leather strap is our favorite of the bunch.
