Shopping for a Father’s Day gift can be difficult, especially if your dad doesn’t java a list of things ready to suggest. If your dad has a particular interest in something, like cars, it can make shopping for them so much easier. This Father’ Day, whether your dad is a car fanatic or just someone who appreciates a nicely kept car, here are a few ideas to wrap up for him.
Tool organizers are a must-have for every car enthusiast. This one is not an extremely fancy tool chest, but it’s one of the more affordable options out there and perfect for a home garage. Measuring 23.5″ by 22.1″ by 11.3″, this tool chest features a central locking system so that each drawer stays secure before, during, and after use. The bottom drawer on this tool chest offers deep storage for larger tools, while 16 removable bins and dividers allow your Dad to organize everything just as he needs.
This 8 gallon, 6.0 peak horsepower stainless wet/dry vacuum from Shop-Vac features a secure latch system tank and lid that are held together, along with rear blower ports so the vacuum can be converted into a powerful blower. It’s portable as well, thanks to top and side carrying handles.
This wet/dry vacuum comes with an assortment of handy attachments and onboard storage on the vacuum itself keeps it all nice and tidy. The power cable on this vacuum measures 12 feet, while the hose is 7-feet long. Shop-Vac includes a 3-year warranty on the motor.
There are a lot of dash cams available on the market today, but one of the more affordable and popular units comes from APEMAN. This 1080p full HD dashcam features a 3″ LCD screen to deliver clear videos and images for playback. The front boasts a 170-degree super wide-angle lens that reduces blind spots so it can capture all the action ahead. It also has a built-in G-sensor that automatically detects a sudden shake or collision, locking down the footage so it can’t be overwritten even in a loop recording. This way, any video recording of an accident is preserved.
This dashcam also works great at night, thanks to an f/1.8 large aperture lens, WDR, and HDR technologies—removing the need for an auxiliary light source. Other features on this dash cam include motion detection, seamless loop recording, and parking monitor.
