Best Gifts for Your Car Lover

With summer upon us, the winding road beckons the car lover in our lives to top off the gas tank, bring the convertible top down, and take a long trip down a sleepy highway. More than likely, time constraints won’t allow for a Kerouac-type journey, but with this roundup of car-themed gifts, you can bring a little of the open road to that special someone.

Protective Sunglasses
The summer months bring the sun out for longer periods of time. Protect the eyes of your favorite driver by gifting proper eyewear to ensure maximum visibility. An important specification to look for in driver sunglasses are polarized lenses to prevent glare and tension headaches. These Ray-Ban Aviator Classics are able to absorb 85% of visible light and provide 100% UV protection. They’re also durable and stylish—perfect for your savvy car lover.

Fingerless Driving Gloves
If a pair of driving glasses are already taking residence in your car buff’s glove compartment, try something else! These Ralph Lauren fingerless driving gloves are best for optimal comfort in the heat. The perforation detailing still provide a no-slip fit, and the smooth leather will have him or her revving their engine like a modern-day Steve McQueen.

Performance Footwear
Footwear is an extension of your body while driving; it promotes a unique connection between foot and pedal. Ensure the driver in your life has protected feet with Piloti Performance Shoes. Providing patented technology like the Roll Control™ spherical heel, these shoes boast comfort and the latest shoe technology.

Car MD
The Car MD is an easy-to-use car diagnostic tool. It plugs into a car and runs a scan to pinpoint any car trouble. It is able to read car issues and provide a complete diagnostic report when connected to a computer. If your car lover is ever on the road or without a computer, they can call the toll-free number and receive the report over the phone. While it won’t fix anything, it is able to give your driver a better perspective on the repairs required in order to avoid up-costs when they visit a mechanic.

GoPro
A nifty tech gadget for the track-obsessed driver is the GoPro camera. Easily mount the camera to the inside car dashboard and keep footage of the best lap times. The video quality range of 720p60 to 1080p30 can easily achieve professional-quality images every time. Entry-level cameras to the latest HERO4 are available. With Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capabilities, the GoPro makes sharing proud moments out on the track quick and easy.

Whether for Father’s Day or to gear up for a summer vacation road trip, we hope you find a thoughtful gift soon. What would you like to receive? Tell us in the comments below!

Product Spotlight: 2004-2009 Nissan 350Z Convertible Top

With its muscular engine, sharp handling capabilities, rear-wheel drive and sleek coupe design, the Nissan 350Z is just another unobtainable sports car that the normal consumer is left to drool at in envy, right? Wrong. The 350Z is famous for being a sports car that comes at a price that real people could actually afford, and it has been that way since its debut in 2003 as the 5th generation of “Z” sports cars made by the Japanese manufacturer Nissan. Being a sports car, drivers are tempted—if not encouraged—to take advantage of its powerful engine by speeding down the highway or zipping through the city to show off its superior performance and handling capabilities. In order to fully enjoy all the benefits the 350Z has to offer, effectively and safely, it’s imperative your convertible top is able to keep up with you.

Luckily for you, our Black Twill Grain Vinyl with Heated Glass Window convertible top for the Nissan 350Z fits model years 2004-2009, and will keep your Nissan ready and willing to fire on all cylinders. The top is manufactured right here in the USA and uses original patterns, specifications, materials and designs. It includes a DOT-certified heated glass window that has a lifetime guarantee, and is securely bonded into the top with no unattractive piping or stitching. Embedded with defroster wire, the window is also able to get rid of fog and snow on the rear window, so you’ll always be able to see anything coming your way. The Twill Grain Vinyl is the same weight and grain found on the original 350Z convertible tops and is made by Haartz, which allows the top to maintain its original look and feel.  

We take pride in our factory-original-styling including a rain guard that is sewn into this particular top, along the length of the top, to direct water flow, and our factory-style sewn-in attachment retainers are pre-drilled for easy, accurate mounting, which makes overall installation a walk in the park.

With a 5/5 star rating and our 100% guarantee, we are confident that our Black Twill Grain Vinyl with Heated Glass Window convertible top will look great and fit without issue—ready to perform at a high level! Contact our support team at 888-254-7679 for additional assistance.
