If you’re scrambling for a gift to give your favorite gearhead, look no further than the LACar 2020 Holiday Gift Guide!

The holidays are upon us! And if you need some last-minute gifts, we’ve got some ideas. If your special someone is a car geek like us, they can be tricky to shop for. However, let us (car guys!) pick out the gifts for you. Here’s our 2020 Holiday Gift Guide for car lovers.

The Original California Duster

BUY HERE - $24.99

Trust us, get the wood handled one. The secret to this duster is the special wax baked into the 100% cotton strands to ensure the dust is lifted and removed, instead of being pushed around. Perfect for anyone who’s a clear coat nitpick.

Follow along with automotive archaeologist Tom Cotter and pal Brian Barr as they tour Route 66 searching for hidden gold stowed away in garages along the Mother Road. The amount of barn finds they find is shocking, and truly worth a read if you want to inspire a road trip!

Hector is one of the finest automotive artists in the world. His art ranges from superbikes to F1, with no compromises. Whether you’re interested in prints, Christmas cards, or Cademartori originals, look no further. That empty wall could definitely use a Hector Cade-masterpiece.  

JumpSmart 3-in-1 Portable Jump Starter

BUY HERE - $119.99

This portable jump starter can wake up nearly any engine, including diesels. The jump starter also features USB charging ports and a handy 330 Lumen LED flashlight in case you get stranded in the dark. Perfect gift that gives you peace of mind.

BUY HERE - $9.99

If your special someone is at all geeky or fascinated with technological progress, I’ll bet they wouldn’t mind hanging out with Elon himself. Unfortunately, that’s a stretch. However, we found the next best thing: Mr. Musk’s head. Elon’s Musk Air Fresheners dangle from anywhere in your car, and the scent is described as ‘high notes of vegan leather, and low notes of rocket fuel.’ Maybe you’ll be inspired to build a spaceship too.

This is the big one. The Catalyst is an absolute must for any track hawks out there, as it relays detailed information about lap times, velocity, and a bunch of other wizardry. It shows how early or late apex entries affect your overall lap time and is a true track companion.

Sirius XM Subscription

BUY HERE – Starting at $5 a month

Sometimes, free radio just doesn’t cut it. Sirius XM offers channels of every genre and artist you could imagine, ranging from Slayer to Celtic Women. Sirius XM is commercial-free and affordable, and enables personal customization to the max.
