It's that time of year again when both young and old dream about special gifts they're hoping to receive. For car guys*, the focus is on anything automotive. Whether it's a new car, a special collector car, high performance parts or car toys or books, that's all we can think about.
Even though I didn't get the new Porsche Panamera or old Barris Kustom I was hoping for last year, there were plenty of trinkets under the tree to make me happy. This year, there seems to be more options than ever. Incentives on new cars are the strongest I've seen in a long time, with every manufacturer offering tempting year end deals. If a new car is not in the cards right now, a quick walk through Summit Racing's showroom in Tallmadge will give you plenty of ideas to add new life to your old car. Also, 2010 has been an absolute banner year for new and interesting auto books. Publishers like Motorbooks and David Bull are great resources for all automotive interests. Finally, a trip to an automotive event is always a welcome gift, especially when you can escape the Midwest's winter cold for a few days in the sun at the Scottsdale or Florida auctions.
OK, I've given you lots of gift ideas for the casual and serious auto enthusiast. What would you like to get this holiday?
