The keys to his affection

THEY say the way to a man's heart is through his stomach but the keys to his affection can often be found swinging from a hook in the hallway.

Cars have filled a special place in the lives of the male population since the dawn of the 20th century: they like to drive them, listen to them, race them and even shine them.

So if you're looking for a gift this Father's Day, why not give the socks and jocks a rest in favour of engine blocks and wheel chocks?

Has he longed to camp at the top of the infamous mountain at the Bathurst 1000, twitched for track time or dreamt of cruising in a convertible on a coast road?

With Father's Day approaching, Drive Life has found a selection of gift ideas that are sure to have the car nut wiping a tear from his eye on Sunday morning.
