    Default Help daddies!!! (and mommies if you can)

    Ok so my dh is turning 30 and I want to do something special. He loves cars and I was thinking about renting a really cool car for a couple of days. I have been looking but all the rental companies have are boring cars. I want something cool. Maybe even something clasic but it needs to be a car that will make him say "WOW!"
    Please help if you know, or if you have a better idea I am up for suggestions too.
    Thanks!

    I don't know cars... not a car person. For the record, my guy card was revoked years ago.

    But when my minivan got stolen, the nice people at what appears to be Budget Rent a Car on York St by William gave me something slick for a few weeks. Quite sporty... can't give you a make or model... I'm useless like that.

    Going to Ingersoll on HWY 2 I did not realize I was going 155... felt like 80 in a van... that's all I know about that.


    As for a better idea... car related... I can't help. If it were me, an overnight trip to see Buffalo play in Toronto would be my Grail of Gifts.

    I think you can only rent the fancy sports cars in Toronto. I remember when I was planning my wedding people were looking for them and that was where they found them. I agree a weekend away to see his favourite professional sport being played is a good alternative (if he is a sport loving guy?).

    Hmmm... Again, not a car guy... I do know there are Car Clubs out there, in which you pay a fee to rent a car....

    If you are heading to Disney World (Florida) this winter or spring you could always get him in to the Richard Petty Driving experience..

    Richard Petty Driving Experience - NASCAR Driving Experience On Tracks Nationwide

    Looks like a lot of fun, and there are many options to choose from!

    Good luck!

    Perhaps proper use of equipment is in order... I can send somebody over for instructions if required.

    You meant to type scarred right?


    Me... I am more of a role player
