Mustang Forums 2013 Father's Day Gift Guide
Father's Day is June 16th, and since we know just how much most of our members love to shop, we've assembled a list of some gifts that'll be surefire hits. There's still plenty of time to have things delivered in time for Dad's day, so get on the ball now and rest easy knowing that you're covered.
Saying you got Pop a set of tires for Father's Day sounds a little like saying you got Mom a vacuum cleaner for Mother's Day. But gearheads know it's not like that. March the old man over to the computer or out to one of TreadDepot's locations, and let him pick out a new pair of shoes for his ride. The company is currently running rebates from $50 to $80 bucks on brands like Pirelli, Cooper, Goodyear and Michelin--so get him some sticky rubber. He'll think of you every time he carves a corner.
A good car is only as good as it's driver, so it makes sense that the driver should be wearing the proper gear. Aside from bearing the proud symbol of the Mustang, the shoes also feature skid resistant soles, eliminating the chance of a slipping from the pedals. The rolled heel provides for extra stability while walking and makes pedal movement easier while driving. Good driving dynamics and comfort? Sign us up.
If Dad always likes his ride spic and span, this kit will be a great addition to his arsenal of cleaning products. The Wax Attack Polisher from Mothers' insures that putting on a solid coat of wax won't take all afternoon, so he can more time enjoying his truck and less time dispensing elbow grease.
Dad may not go for Sunday brunch - a meal made for ladies in hats - but he does go for BRUNCH, a man's meal, a time for savories, for meat and eggs, and coffee, and butter, and bloody marys, yes please thank you very much. So treat him right and provide him with the tools for the perfect Bloody Mary with Stu's Sours kit, a handsomely packaged combo of mix, sweet corn rimmer, key lime juice, and ghost pepper extract for a real kick.
Ice melts, juice glasses irritate the nose, and doesn't dad's whisky deserve better? The answer to that is yes. So give him the Teroforma Whisky Lover Gift set, which includes two crystal tumblers and a set of 6 Whisky stones. These soapstone "rocks" are soft against the glass, and when chilled and placed in your beverage, bring down the temperature just enough.
How do you stay in touch with the adventurous Dad? The new SPOT Global Phone will keep any outdoor enthusiast connected when beyond cell coverage. With SPOT in hand, you can stay connected to family, friends and emergency assistance with crystal clear calls and a long-life Lithium-ion battery. It's the perfect adventure-ready Father's Day gift when he's off the grid.
There's nothing fun about a dead battery, so help keep all dad's toys ready to rock and roll with Optima's Digital 400 12V Performance Maintainer and Battery Charger. The backlit hybrid LED/LCD display provides easy-to-read info on fill rate and battery health, and top-notch build quality insures it'll be around for years.
$300 - $650
Every one wants a chance to get behind the wheel of their dream car. The GT500 is the top of the line and what could be better a better gift than the chance to hoon it all you want. That's the benefit of a rental car: It's not yours!
