Happy holidays from all of us at the Raleigh Classic. If you had a good experience at the auction earlier this month, then chances are you’ve already secured a gift for yourself this holiday season. What if you weren’t a bidder, though? Or what if you have other friends who are classic car enthusiasts and couldn’t join us at the NC State Fairgrounds this year? Lucky for you, we have a few gift ideas for any classic car collector.
You can start with a simple gesture like a post card with the recipient’s favorite car on it. If visuals sound like a good gift to you, consider a classic car calendar. You can go general or find a calendar that highlights a specific car for all twelve months of the year. Maybe you can get them a classic car themed t-shirt to wear while they’re tinkering out in the garage. If you’re after trinkets, then Zazzle has a whole section of classic car gifts that we can’t recommend enough. These options are affordable and available online, so you don’t have to deal with crowds.
Maybe the person you’re shopping for could use some décor on the walls of their garage. In that case, Retro Planet has a huge stock of classic car tin signs and wall shelves for sale. If you want to go fancier, Garage Art sells everything you could ever want to put in a hot rod garage. They’ve got furniture, retro-style clocks, neon signs, and much more.
Of course the best gift of all might be offering to pay their registration fee at the next Raleigh Classic in June. It’s only six months away and we’re already excited for it. However you choose to spend your holiday, we hope you stay classy and safe.
