Still haven’t picked up that Father’s Day gift have yet? Don’t feel bad, we all put it off till the last minute. This procrastination has nothing to do with our affection for dad. It has everything to do with wanting to find the perfect gift but having no idea what that gift would be. Here’s a hint – it isn’t a “kiss the cook” apron, another tie, or even a car wash kit. Nothing horribly wrong with any of those except they are over done and show an astounding lack of creativity. To help you out, I have put together a list of five things I know your dad would love. How do I know? Because I am a dad, a car guy, and I would be overjoyed at any of the items on the list. Let’s face it, your […]
It’s back! Yup, time again for our holiday gift giving guide. Honestly, I am not sure whether this is a list of items for you to give, items you might want to receive, or just my own personal wish list. (Hint, hint) No matter what it is, it is simply a fun exercise in cool stuff for the British car fan.

The Caterham seven […]

Tis the season for gift giving, and what kind of magazine would we be if we didn’t follow suit of every other news source and provide our take on the gifts that every British car lover would enjoy? The key for many of us is that giving or receiving vehicle specific presents is hard. First of all, how does a spouse know what carburetor kit we really need? Or what year/make/model of Vanden Plas we have, so what oil filter element fits that? And what happens if we sell our car? Then all those heartfelt gifts that were for that specific car are now somehow less meaningful? No. That doesn’t work. So, our choice of gifts for British car lovers tend to the be things that transcend specific application, make, or model. They are gifts that keep on giving. They […]
