Car enthusiasts are pretty easy to spot. They are normally guys, but some women are car crazy too, and the casual observer can spot them easily. Their rides are either immaculately clean, and/or heavily accessorized. So we put together the top four must-haves for car enthusiasts; a list that is intended to help not only the car enthusiast but also someone needing to buy a gift for the person who usually has everything.
The Top Four Must-haves for Car Enthusiasts
1. The Scissor Lift
Every car enthusiast works on their own car. That is a given. But when a standard mechanic’s lift is out of your price range a scissor lift will do the same job for a fraction of the cost. Scissor lifts can be purchased for around $1,000. Check your local laws before purchase. Best idea is to look up San Francisco Rental Equipment before starting the process.
2. ECU Diagnostic Computer
Every year cars rely more and more on their CPU’s. That means that most backyard or do-it-yourself mechanics are being pushed out of their hobby. Most are a simple plug and play device anyone can use.
3. Cordless Impact Driver
Up until recently you needed an air compressor to run the best automotive tool, the impact driver. Now you can find cordless ones with impressive power.
4. Portable Back-up Cameras
Ever wish you had a back-up camera? Now wireless ones are available and they can be used for much more than just backing up. Fitted with magnets to fasten it to the vehicle, you can watch your trailer, or look into hard to see areas of the engine bay. The ideas are only limited by your imagination.
The list of must-haves for car enthusiasts is constantly growing and changing. That is why we selected timeless gadgets based on their usability as well as simplicity, and the needs they can meet. If a car enthusiast does not have these, is he really a car enthusiast? Hopefully this list will act as a guide for the real enthusiast. After all, most items on the list can easily be a birthday or Christmas gift. And none are unattainable. Just try to get the scissor lift onto your birthday or Christmas list, and keep your fingers crossed.
