Stuff from D. Nov. 30th, 2009.


Since Christmas is getting closer here’s my top 10 list of stuff to get your favourite gear head, or send the list to your significant other to give them some ideas 🙂

  1. Subscription to Canadian Hot Rods. (Read all about what’s happening in the car scene in Canada, feature cars, tech tips, etc,  and support a Canadian car mag!!!) http://hotrodsandclassics.org/
  2. The book “Class of 2009” by Jordan Morningstar. Manitoba’s Cruising Phenomenon in Pictures. http://www.mcnallyrobinson.com/product;isbn,9780981233703;at,aid4a28657ebda38 Wicked pics of the car scene in Manitoba! Support a Canadian writer/photographer!!! http://sundaycruisefever.com/
  3. Subscription to “Old Autos” http://www.oldautos.ca/ Canadian automotive hobby newspaper that comes out twice a month.
  4. Gift certificates to Canadian Tire. There’s always something on sale you need.
  5. Gift cards to the local gas station. Gas for the Sunday cruiser isn’t cheap anymore.
  6. Digital Camera. Point and shoots under $200.00 work great to catch all the cars at the local show.
  7. The Chevy Mall: http://www.chevymall.com/ The place where Chevy gear heads shop.
  8. Wilkinson’s Automobilia http://www.eautomobilia.com/ The place for diecast and auto books online.
  9. Car care products from Mother’s or Meguiar’s.
  10. Automotive art. Here are some my favorites: http://members.shaw.ca/darryl68ss350/automotiveartists.htm
