Amazon 24 of 35 For Car Dads Who Love to Work with Their Hands ‘Shop Class as Soulcraft: An Inquiry into the Value of Work’ Penguin Books Now 24% off $13 AT AMAZON

I’ve personally gifted this book to like-minded gearheads and enthusiasts no fewer than 10 times, and it always kills. Shop Class As Soulcraft was a national bestseller when it was first published in 2009, and its lessons and insights into the value of working with one’s hands are at least as important today. Matthew B. Crawford questions the educational imperative of turning everyone into a “knowledge worker” while, in the process, discounting the value of real physical labor. Using his own experience as an electrician and mechanic, Crawford presents a wonderfully articulated call for self-reliance. (Also check out Crawford’s latest book, Why We Drive: Toward a Philosophy of the Open Road.) Soulcraft is a true gem of a book—and the perfect Father’s Day gift for car dads.

Todd Snyder 27 of 35 For Stylin’ Car Dads Italian Car Coat Todd Snyder $494 AT TODD SNYDER

Todd Snyder is one of the few men’s designers who’s as comfortable with hoodies as he is couture—and this gorgeous houndstooth car coat is no exception. The “car coat” was conceived as a long overcoat designed to keep motorists warm in early automobiles that were open to the elements. Over time, the term became synonymous with a shorter coat, one designed to sit mid-thigh. It’s not cheap, but it’s marked down to about half price right now. This is a Father’s Day gift of distinction.
