Great Gifts for Car Lovers

Gifts for Car Lovers

Buying a gift for the car lover in your life can be tricky, when there’s such a profusion of auto-related merchandise on the market. We’ve put together some great ideas for gifts for car lovers that will help you pick the perfect present.

Car accessories are an important part of a gearhead’s life. They make driving more convenient and comfortable and add a touch of style to the car. One practical gift is a cell phone holder they can attach to the dashboard, which lets them use their phone’s GPS or music streaming apps more safely.

If your car loving friend is also a dog lover, consider a seat protector that will help protect their upholstery from fur when their dog joins them on trips.

Sometimes car aficionados are also photographers. If you want to splurge a little, try a dashboard camera for your adventurous friend.

You might also want to think about what tools your car enthusiast needs. You can go for a complete tool set or a cleaning and waxing kit.  Another suggestion is to get them an air impact wrench or an air compressor.

These are just a few ideas for what to get a car fan for Christmas, so check out more here, or give us a call at Randall Mitsubishi!

A Night on the Town with the San Angelo Performing Arts Campus

Upcoming events at the San Angelo Performing Arts Campus

If you live around San Angelo, you know that the San Angelo Performing Arts Campus hosts an incredible number of performances throughout the year, with a wide range of different genres and themes. There’s a variety of festive diversions at the San Angelo PAC this winter to captivate you and your family.

Classic Christmas Performances

Mid-December will feature performances of the ballet The Nutcracker, which will return this year to its original home at City Auditorium in the Murphey Performance Hall. This holiday classic is a staple of the Christmas season worldwide.

Another Christmas show taking place in December is Fiesta Navidad, performed by the GRAMMY award-winning Mariachi Divas, a multicultural ensemble with roots in mariachi that draws from diverse backgrounds to create a unique show steeped in tradition.

Country Music Concerts

If you’re not looking for something Christmassy to do, check out one of the concerts hosted by the San Angelo PAC. Clint Black is coming on December 9, also to the Murphey Performance Hall. The legendary country singer will be preceded by piano group The 5 Browns, who performs piano pieces ranging from duets to five-piano pieces.

The San Angelo Performing Arts Campus is one of many venues that make San Angelo such a culturally significant and artistic area, and the staff at Randall Mitsubishi is proud to be part of this community. Enjoy the holiday season with a trip to the PAC!

Upgrade Your Car For An Early Christmas Present To Yourself

upgrade your car

Christmas is the perfect time to indulge the people you love. Of course, you can also get a present for your vehicle. Upgrade your car this holiday season with one of these suggestions.

Garmin Heads-Up Display

If your vehicle doesn’t already come with a heads-up display, Garmin offers this add-on for drivers who want a little more tech in their lives, which projects information directly onto your windshield for quick, easy access.

DVD Entertainment System

Keep the little ones entertained on the go by installing a DVD entertainment system for rear-seat passengers. Don’t worry about keeping them occupied on road trips; you’ll never hear the phrase “are we there yet?” ever again.

Bluetooth Phone System

Again, many cars now come with Bluetooth streaming systems, but you can also install your own hands-free phone functionality with devices like the SuperTooth HD.

Kensington Proximo

A great gift for anyone who tends to lose their keys, this device runs on Bluetooth functionality. The GPS feature will help you locate your car keys whenever you misplace them.

Sunroof

The ultimate indulgence, a sunroof will come in handy when summer comes around again and you can enjoy sunlight and a warm breeze while cruising along new paths.

With all sorts of convenient tech and useful add-ons, choosing to upgrade your car for Christmas is a great opportunity to make your life on wheels a little more fun.

Kick off New Year’s with Safe Driving Resolutions

safe driving resolutions Safe driving resolutions are a good alternative to the usual personal health goals most people set on New Year’s. Here are some ideas to get you started.

Maintain your vehicle

Performing routine maintenance goes a long way in keeping you safe on the road. Keep up to date with replacing all fluids and your tires, and keep your car’s engine in top shape.

Don’t use your phone

Glancing away from the road for even a few seconds can cause an accident. Avoid this by not texting or making phone calls while you’re driving.

Learn defensive driving

Defensive driving is the art of navigating the road in a way that anticipates the behaviors and habits of other drivers to deter the risk of collisions before they happen. Seek out a class or workshop in your area.

Drive the speed limit

Everybody speeds at some point. However, a lot of accidents could be avoided if drivers slowed down a bit. Resolve to drive the speed limit more often in the coming year.

Buckle your seat belt

A startling number of people wear their seat belts incorrectly, if they wear them at all. Make sure that you and your passengers are buckled in before embarking on any driving adventure.

If you want to initiate some unique New Year’s resolutions, these driving habit resolutions will help keep you and your passengers safe while minimizing the likelihood of collisions with other drivers.
