Corvette Forum’s 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.
Given its iconic place in America’s automotive history, a world without the Chevrolet Corvette might seem impossible. But if not for a die-hard group of the General’s engineers, the line might have died with the C4. This book tells the story of the birth of the C5, and it’s a must-read for any Corvette fan.
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 six whisky stones. These soapstone ?rocks? are soft against the glass, and when chilled and placed in your beverage, bring down the temperature just enough.
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.
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.
If there’s one generalization you can make about Corvette owners, it’s that they’re all particular about keeping their rides spic and span. And this Wax Attack Polisher from Mothers? will insure that putting on a solid coat of wax won’t take all afternoon. Let Dad spend more time driving and less waxing!
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. 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.
If Dad is looking to wring more performance from his Vette, the best thing he can do is take driving classes?and Bondurant’s are legendary. The school is also the only place where he can get personal instruction from Corvette Racing champion Johnny O?Connell. Trust us, Dad will flip out.
