Free Weekly Car Washes for a Year

If Dad has a new car that he polishes and shines every week, then purchase a years worth of weekly car wash gift certificates at his favorite local car wash or a gift card loaded with funds for 52 single car washes. National car wash chains, such as Autobell Car Wash locations across the southern U.S., offer customers reloadable gift cards in varying amounts to be used for self-service or hand-wash car wash services at any of their locations.

They are found at most larger auto parts stores nationwide but custom covers can be ordered through specialized on-line dealers such as Car Covers Direct (carcoversdirect.com).

Commuters Special-Pay for His Gas or Parking

If Dad is a daily commuter and his car is his second home then consider giving him a little help for that drive to and from work by paying a monthly parking garage fee for him. If he doesn’t have any city parking to pay, then consider making his drive easier with a loaded fuel gift card from the fuel stop or station that he uses the most. Many stations offer gift cards for purchase in any amount and sometimes use of these gift card funds can be used in conjunction with frequent fueler programs, such as at Shell Corporation. Check out the extra discounts available when he uses a Shell gift card for Shell fuel purchases at shell.com or stop by his favorite station and purchase one to use at its particular company locations.

For the lucky dad who already has everything for his favorite four-wheeled ride, surprise him with an unexpected, cutting edge gift this Father’s Day by giving him a high tech custom installed car computer system. Specialized car stereo system installers or larger auto part stores will have personal computer systems, which are designed and sized precisely for automobiles, stocked for sales with installation available. On-line custom system websites, such as CPU (cpu.com), can design a system with any hardware, software or application design request that your Dad might need.
