CHC-Buying-Guide-Lead

Yup, it’s that time of year again. Christmas songs in every store (starting way too early it seems), decorations, trees, and lights galore – enough of that rhyming stuff. Let’s just get down to the brass tacks of it. Car guys absolutely LOVE Christmas! And generally it’s not because of the cheerful music and bountiful feasts of food (although that part doesn’t suck), but more along the lines of the annual excuse to actually get away with buying car parts galore!

santachevyWe can actually get away with, not only buying ourselves some goodies for our never-ending projects, but somehow – if we’re lucky enough – we can even convince those closest to us to go out and take advantage of all of the great holiday deals to score even more worthy parts from those we love. This year we rallied the troops to scrounge up some of the coolest automotive parts and accessories along with the hottest deals out there for the holidays. So, whether you’ve been mildly naughty and only deserving of some Stocking Stuffers, or if you’ve just scratched the surface of Nice, all the way to the REALLY Nice list – we’ve got something for everyone.

Open up that email window and get your “copy and paste” on, send your favorites to the wife, family, or anyone else you can talk into furnishing your wish list – Happy Holidays everyone!
