The coming holiday season is sneaking up quick, and gift ideas for your car lover may be few and far in between. To remedy this I have come up with a list of great ideas for you car, truck, or plain old auto lover pulling at your heart strings. I’ve split the top choices into three sections, the first is accessories, the second is safety, and the third is cleanliness.
Flash accessories are the surest way to spell cool for your auto lover and enthusiast. Help his or her car shine in the eye of all who see it with a few simple and cheap ideas to add eye catching stylings to the car and truck you love. Some of these are, nerve bars for trucks, and the surest way to get your car noticed at night, multicolored lighting.
The nerve bars, besides the bed, are the most beat and used part of any truck. If the bars that you own are in less than perfect shape, the ones I recommend are the Westin Platinum CPS, specifically for the Ford F-150 regular cab. You can get one complete set for $405.61 at stainlessnerfbars.com. If you own a different type of truck, as many do, chances are they carry your brand of nerve bars, too, just check out the wide selection at, stainlessnerfbars.com.
For the car owner who loves the night on the town, the best way to get your ride noticed is with effective and cool lighting schemes. This is where the Sound Activated Double Neon Tubes, by Chinavasion.com, comes in. With this lighting style the the light keep the rhythm. With every beat of your car stereo the lights flash, keeping rhythm to the blues. Just attach the tubes to your car and plug the receiver into your cars cigarette lighter, and watch the neon blue light pull the eyes of the crowd to you and your pimped ride. You can get your now at, Chinavasion.com.
Safety is top of mind whenever you get control of a 1/2 ton of metal with an engine and wheels. When and if something goes wrong in your car, the LED Roadside Flares, by Sharper Image, are a must have. Forget the folding triangles that reflect light. If the reflective tape gets rubbed or peeled off, it’s useless. On the other hand, if you have the LED Roadside Flares you’ll be seen and safe by a mile. They’re available at Amazon.com, e-bay, and Craigslist, if you’re lucky. The price for one set, which is really all you need, is $59.99.
