All cars should have a small bucket ofitems for an emergency or surprise tire change.

Gloves for tire changing-because flatshappen when he's in a suit!

Bungee cords and ratchet tie downs

Hand sanitizer

Water-for the engine & for dad

Movies- Westerns, military, orclassics. Think wild west, car chases and heroes.
