Looking for gift ideas for the automotive enthusiast in your life? What do you get a car person when all they really want is one more car? Since most of us aren’t going to shell out the coin to buy someone else a car, here is the next best thing, awesome gifts for car enthusiasts that’ll fuel their love for automobiles.
For Racing Enthusiasts
Anyone can put those cute little racetrack stickers on their car or helmet but how about on their wall? Plasma-Tracks creates stellar wall art formed from raw steel or aluminum into the precise shapes of race tracks from all over the globe. They have North American race tracks, even the famed ones which no longer exist (Ghost Tracks) plus the all important F1 and International tracks known throughout motorsports history. From 4″ to 48″ Plasma-Tracks will build any track you desire, LeMans, Nurburgring, Mid-Ohio, Laguna-Seca, any more. They can even powder coat it in your favorite colors.
For Porsche and McLaren fans, vsixdesign creates some knockout vibrant images as prints on paper, canvas, metal or fabric which make for unique garage banners.
For the full on fan of racing history, Inside Track, is THE MUST HAVE item. This new biographical book which chronicles racing legend Phil Hill and some of his unbelievable historic color photographs, compiled by his son Derek Hill along with award-winning motor racing historian and author Doug Nye, and American photographer Steve Dawson. This at the top of every motorsports enthusiast’s gift list (even if they don’t know about it.) The book is HUGE, ships from the publisher in England and is only available here. If you want to know more about the making of the book and the three gentlemen involved, check out their interviews on Cars Yeah, you will be mesmerized.
Garage Enhancement At Any Level
Every automotive enthusiast has the need for an air compressor. Whether pumping up the meats for winter storage or blowing out the toolbox, this rechargeable handheld Airgun air compressor from Sporty’s Tool Shop is perfect for the garage or in the trunk.
Modular garage floors are the greatest invention for adults who like clean floors or to put things together. Seriously, what else is there to do after all the gifts are open? (Think of it like a gift of adult Legos.) I’m partial to RaceDeck because it works. Use their online floor designer to intersperse the right colors with solid and open drainable tiles and have the complete floor shipped to you ready to install. (I installed it as a surprise gift, it is that easy.) Car guys and gals love this floor. The floor above was right after installation and the first one, a quick snap I did for this post, but it cleans up like a breeze.
