For Car Dads Who Love the Rearview Mirror
Porche Design P´8938
Porsche Design

Classic form meets the art of engineering. The P´8938 Aviator is inspired by the design of the Porsche engine block. With a milled titanium backing element, each frame is assembled by hand. Lightweight temples made from high-performance plastic emphasize the high-tech character of the front section and ensure maximum comfort. These Aviators also come in a classic hexagonal shape, the P´8937. Both are available in four different color combinations with polarized lenses.

For Car Dads with Too Many Cars
OTC Tools 1580 Stinger 1,500 lbs Easy Roller Dolly
Amazon
OTC

If Dad's always struggling to move stuff around the garage to get to that one thing he needs (it's always way in the back), the Stinger from OTC Tools is the ideal garage accessory. It's a handy way to roll vehicles to and fro without all the backing out, pulling in and jockeying for position. And of course, the jump-starting. It's particularly great for moving disabled or project cars. Remember, he'll need at least two of these — probably four.

For Motoring and Touring Dads
Dents Silverstone Touchscreen Leather Driving Gloves
Mr Porter
Dents

Since 1777, Dents has been making classy leather gloves with purpose. Although it champions traditional glove-making, this pair is made from butter-soft black leather and has touchscreen-friendly fingertips. They even have those iconic perforations, plus elasticated trims for comfort. Talk about the perfect driving accessory gift.

For Car Dads Who Love Grilling & BBQ
Holy Grail Steak Co. Smoke & Grill Steak Flight
Holy Grail Steak Co.
Holy Grail Steak Co.

Okay, it's not a car-related gift — but a Steak Flight for Father's Day seems just about perfect. Holy Grail partners only with small, independent, artisan farms and ranches to bring you the best in American Wagyu beef. The company's steak selection is vast, but this Steak Flight is undeniable. It includes a smokable Kurobuta boneless pork loin roast, two Tajima American Wagyu strip steaks, two Tajima American Wagyu ribeyes and eight Tajima American Wagyu burger patties.

For Car Dads Who Avoid Tech
Garmin Speak Plus GPS with Alexa
Garmin
Garmin

A great Father's Day gift for old-school dads who tend to avoid tech and gadgets, this discreet device combines Alexa voice command with Garmin GPS plus a dash cam, all in a package smaller than a deck of cards. It provides infotainment and directions right through the vehicle's audio system. And the 82-degree, 1080p dash cam has all the features of larger units, like incident recording and lane-deviation warnings. Playing cards not included.

For Car Dads Who Deserve Something Exceptional
Tinggly World's Best Driving Experiences
Tinggly
Tinggly

Once-in-a-lifetime drives on the most iconic tracks and surfaces on earth. A sports car in the heat of the desert. A classic car on a legendary European road course.

With over 50 driving experiences to choose from, this is one of the best automotive gifts a dad could ever hope for on Father's Day.

For Car Dads Who Love Apple
Bullstrap Stainless Steel Metal Watch Band for Apple Watch

Bullstrap

The Apple Watch is amazing, but have you ever tried to dress one up? Kinda hard with a silicon watchband. With a brushed finish and a folding clasp, this stainless steel metal bracelet from Bullstrap brings elegance and class to Dad's smartwatch. It's available in widths from 38 to 44mm, and also comes in black.

For Car Dads Who Love Golf
Sunday Golf Loma Range Golf Bag
Sunday Golf
Sunday Golf

Perfect for when he only needs a few clubs, stash this stealthy range golf bag in Dad's trunk and he'll be ready anytime the fairway or driving range calls. The Loma weighs less than two pounds and holds up to seven clubs. With a built-in stand and an insulated pouch for drinks, it's bound to be Dad's new go-to golf bag.

For Car Dads Who Still Love to Play
Lego Back to the Future Time Machine
Lego

Lego's latest edition of the iconic DeLorean time machine is a challenge that'll easily take up a weekend of unwavering focus. Featuring mini-figures of Doc and Marty, along with a light-up flux capacitor, the vehicle can be assembled in any of the three variations from the trilogy. The Lego Back to the Future Time Machine is perfect for any fanboy-ing dad who enjoys a bit of nostalgia.

For Handy Car Dads
Benchmade Freek 560-1 EDC Folding Knife
Amazon
Benchmade

A quality knife will last a lifetime, and there's no more quality a knife brand than Benchmade. The gray-and-black layered G10 is milled to provide excellent grip and style, while anodized aluminum barrel spacers bring an additional pop of color. The high-strength CPM-M4 blade is designed for hard use. Watch Dad's eyes light up when he pops this baby open on June 19.

For Car Dads Who Love Volkswagens and the Backyard

Amazon
Board Masters

With a telescopic handle, front-end steering and rubber tires, this ice chest wagon is detailed just like an iconic T1 VW Bus.

For Beer-Loving Car Dads
Craft Beer Club Membership
Craft Beer Club
Craft Beer Club

When the drive is done, Dad can crack open an ice-cold craft beer from any number of independent craft breweries from all 50 states. Each monthly Craft Beer Club box showcases two different breweries from two different regions in the U.S., with four different beer styles (two from each brewery) that change each month. He'll also get plenty of craft-y swag.

Oracle Red Bull Racing 2022 Team Rain Jacket
F1 Store
F1 Store

Whether he's watching the race trackside or out and about in inclement weather, this is the ideal outer layer for car dads to show some authentic F1 style while supporting their favorite race team. Team and sponsor branding on the chest, sleeves and back show off the Red Bull spirit, and the water-resistant shell and full hood ensure he'll be well protected from the elements. If Red Bull isn't Dad's team, there are plenty of other gift and gear options at the F1 Store.

For Car Dads Who Love to Hate Washing the Car
Sun Joe XTREAM Electric Pressure Washer for Cars
Amazon
Sun Joe

Combining gas-like power with the quiet and convenience of an electric, the XTREAM won't be strong enough for stripping your deck — but it's ideal for washing cars, trucks, boats, bikes and more. The 13A motor packs up to 2200 psi to break down and strip away dirt, grease and grime at up to 1.65 gallons per minute. The auto attachments and onboard foam cannon make car washing a breeze.

For Car Dads Who Need Refreshments, Constantly

For Car Dads Who Love the Outdoors
RX680 Walkie-Talkies
Cobra

A good pair of walkie-talkies can be a lifesaver, especially if Dad plans on doing some off-grid adventuring. Cobra sent us a pair of these RX680 walkies to try, and we were impressed by the distance rating of up to 38 miles, waterproof construction and built-in NOAA weather alerts. Whether he's out hunting or hiking, he'll appreciate these walkies to keep him in communication range.

For Curious Car Dads
MasterClass Gift Membership
Masterclass
MasterClass

With an immersive learning experience from experts, Dad can learn filmmaking from Martin Scorcese, how to cook from Gordon Ramsay, chess from Garry Kasparov — even how to develop a winning mindset as taught by Lewis Hamilton. A membership entitles Dad to as many classes as he'd like, and various plans include family streaming and more.

For Car Dads Who Long for the Good Ol' Days
Vintage 1957 Road and Track Magazines
eBay
Road & Track

There's a huge selection of vintage R&T magazines for sale on eBay, including a bunch from the Sixties through the Nineties. You'll give your car-loving dad the gift of memories and nostalgia with this set.

For Formula 1 Car Dads
F1 2022 Mercedes AMG Petronas Lewis Hamilton Cap
F1 Store
Mercedes

The F1 Store has a ton of team and driver logo caps, but none as classy as this white Mercedes Lewis Hamilton hat. Made of polyester with an adjustable back, it's fit for a day at the races or on the golf course. One size fits every car-loving dad's head.

For Car Dads Who Love to Work with Their Hands
'Shop Class as Soulcraft: An Inquiry into the Value of Work'
Amazon
Penguin Books
Now 24% off

I've personally gifted this book to like-minded gearheads and enthusiasts no fewer than 10 times, and it always kills. Shop Class As Soulcraft was a national bestseller when it was first published in 2009, and its lessons and insights into the value of working with one's hands are at least as important today. Matthew B. Crawford questions the educational imperative of turning everyone into a “knowledge worker” while, in the process, discounting the value of real physical labor. Using his own experience as an electrician and mechanic, Crawford presents a wonderfully articulated call for self-reliance. (Also check out Crawford's latest book, Why We Drive: Toward a Philosophy of the Open Road.) Soulcraft is a true gem of a book—and the perfect Father's Day gift for car dads.

For Techie Car Dads
DJI Mavic Mini Drone FlyCam Quadcopter
Amazon
DJI
Now 15% off

If Dad has always been fascinated by, but also perhaps intimidated by, drones, then this easy-to-use, lightweight quadcopter from industry leader DJI is the ideal gift. The Mavic Mini has 30 minutes of flying time, works with both iOS and Android and weighs just half a pound. It still manages to capture aerial photos and smooth 2.7K HD video, thanks to a three-axis motorized gimbal. The app is a breeze to use, too.

For Last-Minute/Can't-Decide Car Dads
JBird Apparel Co. Car Enthusiast Poker Cards
Etsy
JBird Apparel Co.

Can't decide on a Father's Day gift? Don't want to spend a lot of money? Need something simple, quick and easy? Here's the perfect solution for any car-loving dad. A standard set of 52 Car Enthusiast playing cards with two jokers, emblazoned with the front end of a Seventies muscle car. (It appears to be a Chevy Malibu. Kind of.)

For Stylin' Car Dads
Todd Snyder Italian Car Coat
Todd Snyder
Todd Snyder

Todd Snyder is one of the few men's designers who's as comfortable with hoodies as he is couture — and this gorgeous houndstooth car coat is no exception. The "car coat" was conceived as a long overcoat designed to keep motorists warm in early automobiles that were open to the elements. Over time, the term became synonymous with a shorter coat, one designed to sit mid-thigh. It's not cheap, but it's marked down to about half price right now. This is a Father's Day gift of distinction.

For Hands-Free Car Dads
iOttie Velox Magnetic Car Phone Mount
iOttie
iOttie

This is one of the finest magnetic phone mounts we've ever used. Dad can just toss his device up onto the Velox and it snaps into place in perfect alignment for up to 7.5 watts of wireless power. Note that the Velox is only compatible with MagSafe-capable phones; Dad's old phone may stick, but it won't charge.

For Car Dads Who Love the Garage
Retro Tin Vintage Auto Signs
Amazon
FlowerBeads

We can't imagine a dad who wouldn't get a kick out of hanging these tin retro automotive signs in his garage or shop. Sure, they're kitschy. But they're also semi-realistic and undeniably cool. If you're looking for an inexpensive Father's Day gift for a car-loving dad, you can't go wrong here.

For Car Dads Who Like to Get Dressed Up
Porche Design Pure Eau de Toilette
Porsche Design

Dad's gotta smell nice, too, and this fragrance from Porsche Design is a great choice, whether he's a car fan or not. Described as "radiating definitive exclusivity and masculine purism," the Porsche Design Pure Eau de Toilette features notes of grapefruit, sage and ozone chord. Our sample bottle looks sharp and dignified, and the scent gives an overall warm and slightly peppery fragrance.

For Car Dads Who Love Adventure
Whiskey Peaks American Mountains Whiskey Glasses
Huckberry
Whiskey Peaks

This set consists of four handblown, lead-free whiskey glasses, each featuring a raised topographic impression of some of the greatest, most majestic peaks in the U.S.: Denali, Mount Whitney, Mount Rainier and Half Dome. Whiskey Peaks will keep any car-loving dad "on the rocks" whenever 5 o'clock calls.

For Car Dads on the Go Go Go!
SmrtMugg Battery-Powered Heated Coffee Mug
Amazon
SmrtMugg

With a 10-hour battery life, the SmrtMugg keeps that Drive Coffee at Dad's desired temperature all day long. It even has a USB port to charge his smartphone. The double-walled, vacuum-insulated mug heats cold water in just 10 minutes, so it's great for tea, too. With no cords or bases required, this is a fantastic Father's Day gift for those dads who are always behind the wheel.

For the Garage or Shop
DeWalt Padded Rolling Shop Stool
Amazon
DeWalt

Now this is a thoughtful Father's Day gift. The rip-resistant vinyl and foam-padded seat of this DeWalt shop stool provides a comfortable perch while Dad works. He'll be able to rotate 360 degrees, customize the seat height from 24 to 28 inches and stash his tools below on the wire-grid shelf. With a sturdy steel-frame construction, this shop stool can easily support up to 300 pounds, and the industrial powder-coated steel will not chip or fade.

For Car Dads Who (Almost) Have It All
Omega Speedmaster '57
Reeds
Omega

The legend. Inspired by the 1957 original, this 40.50mm model features a stainless-steel case and a black dial with recessed hour markers. Along with rhodium-plated “broad arrow” hands, the brushed bezel includes a blackened tachymeter scale, while on the caseback there is a “Speedmaster '57” engraving as well as a flat sapphire crystal. Omega style #O33210415101001.
