Jim’s Blog: Cool Stuff for Dad

Father’s Day is this Sunday, and if you’re still looking for that perfect car guy item for the dad in your life, ACC has you covered. Here’s a couple of cool car guy things dad will love:


Meguiar’s Air Re-Fresher


Think of this like a smell-neutralizing secret weapon for dad’s car — fire up the car, roll up the windows, turn on the heater fan, and then pop the top on the Re-Fresher can and close it in the car. This stuff doesn’t cover up smells — it eliminates them on the molecular level, and since it cycles through the car’s heating and A/C system, it does its job well. There are three new smells for 2016: Sparkling Berry, Spring Blossom, and Spiced Wood. Check them out at www.meguiars.com.



Car Shirts

Holley shirt

Summit Racing offers over 2,000 different car T-shirts, including all the big-name speed parts companies, every muscle car manufacturer, and countless hot rod and custom-themed designs. I just bought a handful for myself, and all of them are printed on high-quality stock that won’t wear out quickly. Average price is about $20, and with warehouses in both Nevada and Ohio, Summit should be able to get you one quickly. www.summitracing.com.



Griot’s Ultimate Car Wash Bucket


This kit has everything dad needs to keep his classic car looking its best. The bucket has a grille inside to filter out dirt and debris, which prevents scratching the paint. It has a molded-in measuring cup for measuring out the wash liquid and a 6-gallon capacity, which is enough for even the biggest classic car. Check it out at www.griotsgarage.com.



American Car Collector magazine


What’s not to love about the best American car magazine out there? $29.95 for six issues that will keep dad on the cutting edge of what’s happening in today’s classic car marketplace. Learn more here.
