So, you forgot to buy Dad something for Father’s
Day…again. You know the drill by now: run to the store to pick up an
overpriced pair of funky socks, a bag of beef jerky, and a cheesy card. Throw
everything into a bag and call it a night. You’ve done it before, and you’ll
probably do it again because that’s just how Father’s Day works.
But what if there was a better way to give Dad a last-minute
gift that didn’t seem like a
last-minute gift? Check out these 10 Father’s Day gift ideas that will show Dad
you put some thought into his present. (Sucker!)
#10) Truck Bed Tent
Does Dad like to camp yet despise sleeping on tree roots? Grab
him a tent for his truck bed on Father’s Day. Most OEM truck bed tents can be
had for a couple hundred dollars and installed easily – perhaps even more so
than a typical tent. Visit our auto
parts shop in Blue Springs, MO, to purchase a truck bed tent for your dad.
We can install tents on most trucks, including the Nissan Frontier, Chevy
Silverado, and Toyota Tacoma.
It’s prom season, and this year you no longer have the
luxury of hiding at home and waiting for it to pass. Those blissful days of
walking past prom dresses without cringing at price tags are long gone. There’s
no fairy godmother flying in, waving her wand and zapping down the perfect pair
of heels. It’s all on you to make sure that your teen gets what she needs for
that perfect night.
Yes, prom can be a stressful time for parents, and perhaps
the most stressful aspect of preparing for your teen’s special night is
planning the transportation. If you are looking to avoid renting a limo by
chauffeuring your teen to the prom, here are 10 tips to make sure you aren’t
embarrassing her and destroying her life.
1. Wash Your Ride
Tonight is a big deal to your teen, and they want to make a good impression on their friends. It’s probably a sore spot they can’t drive to the prom themselves, so make the extra effort to wash your vehicle before chauffeuring. Focus on the inside as well so that your kid’s friends don’t discover old French fries circa 2013.
Spring is just around the corner, and that means it’s time to start spring cleaning. But don’t just create a to-do list for your home or your landscaping. Getting your car washed is just as important, especially after the hard winter weather of the Midwest. Here are some expert answers to those frequently asked questions about spring car washing.
The great thing about St. Patrick’s Day is you don’t have to be Irish to join in on the fun! (Though green attire is expected.) To help you get into the celebratory spirit, here are some of the best Kansas City events for Saint Paddy’s Day. Just be sure you’ve got a designated driver at the ready.
anyone interesting in buying or leasing a car knows, automakers tout fuel
economy as one of the most important selling features of any new vehicle — and
for good reason. Cars with higher MPG make for less-expensive driving and can
shield car owners from fluctuations in gas prices. But you don’t have to buy a
new car, much less a hybrid or all-electric one, to improve fuel economy. You
can improve the mpg of the car you already own, without spending a penny, by
following these tips!
You’re beginning to eye the late-model vehicles you see on the road. Boy, how nice would it be to have a newer car or truck with up-to-date features?

Child car seats have come a long way in the last few years, as have traffic safety laws. Car seat manufacturers and parents alike have a better idea of how to help keep children safe in the car–and that includes choosing the right seat for each child.
Unfortunately, with so many different seats on the market, it can be difficult to choose the right one for your older vehicle. Every used car model has a different setup: LATCH anchors in different locations, seats that tilt at different angles, fold-down benches, and other unique considerations. Before you choose the car seats for your child and vehicle, consider some of these important steps.
