Grooming tools for the car nut

What do you get the car guy who has everything?

How about fingernail clippers?

My son and daughter-in-law live in Japan. Today a box arrived in the mail loaded with lots of Christmas gifts. There were Japanese slippers, kimonos and teapots and plenty of fun stuff. One of my gifts was a fingernail clipper.

Now I realize that normally fingernail clippers are nothing to get excited over. Especially when they come wrapped for Christmas (can’t you just picture the reaction from your child when they open clippers on Christmas morning?). But these clippers were different. They were shaped like a car. In fact, if you look closely, they have a hint of BMW styling.

I’m a long way from being the car guy who has everything. But I now have car shaped clippers, and that’s a start.
