So you’re paging through your calendar and you realize it’s Friday.  Yes, almost the end of the week! You decide to flip through your weekend and THERE IT IS: “Father’s Day” scrolled sweetly across Sunday, June 16. Panic sets in. Whoops.

But, have no fear, there is still some times left and a multitude of awesome things to buy, or do, with your dad. Is he a car lover, a history buff, or a connoisseur of speed? Well, then I’ve gotcha covered.

Here are some great ideas to give Dad this weekend that he’s sure to love. Even Enzo would want these gifts on his bookshelf!

For the IndyCar Dad:

Does your dad still talk about the “good ole’ days of racing” with Mario Andretti, AJ Foyt, or Al Unser? If he’s a fan of the Indy 500 and/or biographies, I have just the book for him: Janet Guthrie: A Life At Full Throttle.

Janet Guthrie’s account of her breakthrough into both Indy and NASCAR is a gripping read. I found myself white-knuckling my book whenever she described her experiences in the cock-pit. The book is filled with funny inside stories with some of racing’s biggest stars.  Your dad is sure to be impressed by Janet Guthrie, a pioneer in racing for women, and enjoy this little foray into history.  Expect intermittent chuckles — Janet is a very witty writer.

I'm just tearing up with joy, reading this article. It's just so soothing to know that women have finally broken through the testosterone ceiling.
Actually, I was hoping to get a copy of "Men are from Mars; Women are from Venus", from my daughter, so I can complete the transformation to a healthy, mainstream, effervescent, metrosexual. But, first, I'll have to entice her away from the brake job she's doing on her F 650.
And I can't wait until "My Little Fiat" gets published! Ooooooohhhhh!!!!
Enzo would be just, so, sublimely titillated, I'm sure.

Hi, al from Canada!
And can you believe PETA lets them use dogs for the Iditarod? That should be 10 white guys pulling that sled for the dogs.

Now that is right funny! Your first post is a bit angry, but I can go with angry.
