1. Mobile GPS Unit:
TomTom, Garmin, Magellan… it really doesn’t matter. If your Pop is still driving around in a 1972 Dodge Dart and uses a map to get from point A to point B then it may be time for a new mobile dash mounted GPS unit. These little suckers are great, go from car to car with no hassles and start at about $125.00 for a good beginner unit. Amazon.com is a good place to start or just take a ride to your local Best Buy.
2. Remote Controlled Car:
Fine, go ahead and laugh but these little buggers are an absolute riot if you get the right one. First and foremost don’t be cheap with these things… your Dad will most likely want to tinker and put his new toy together so spend some coin and get him a good one. Dune buggies, hot rods, electric or gas. The remote control cars of today are packed full of technology and performance that will make the old man smile and feel like he’s 10 years old again.

3. Car Wash Gift Certificates:

Head on down to your local car wash and pick him up a nice packet of 10-20 free washes. I guarantee that this is something he’ll really like… trust me on this.
4. Richard Petty Driving Experience:
Is your Dad a Nascar fan? Has he ever dreamed of strapping into a 600 hp full blown race car and tackling the track at over 100 mph? Well, if this is the case then how about giving him that experience by heading over to the Richard Petty Driving Experience where they’ll give your Dad a Nascar experience that he’ll never forget.
