Race Car Shaped Wine Holder – Gift for the Auto Mechanic.  This wine caddy would be a nice and unusual decoration for the repair shop. It holds one bottle of wine…. You supply their favorite bottle!

Business Card Holder for their Pocket – Just big enough to hold 15 cards.  This will keep the business cards straight and clean… It will help a mechanic to look professional about what he does. It may help him get more customers. A business card holder is often a good gift for any business man or woman who’s just entered a profession and needs to do some networking….. Also good for an experienced person. In these tough times, it helps to be ready to sell yourself.

Alternatively, there’s these Metal Business Card Holders – With Ford Mustang & Cadillac Logos

Retro Signs for the Shop – Ford, Chevrolet, Race Cars, etc

Here’s something that looks vintage…. Rust and all… If their repair shop, bodywork shop, or garage looks a bit sparse, maybe they’d like to liven it up with these signs?

Is he a Ford lover? This is a tin sign that looks old. It says “Ford Motor Co, Detroit, Michigan.”


 A reproduction of an old tin car service sign, great for the garage or man cave! Old signs like this one would also be great at a mechanic’s shop.

 This is an old time hot rod sign that’s made to look distressed, so it really looks vintage. It even has an old style gas pump pictured. Under the word “Garage,” it says “Street Rods, Muscle Cars, Classics.”
