  3. GoPro: You can order this gift online, or visit a local store such as Biggs Camera, located in Uptown Charlotte. While this gift isn’t specifically for a car, there are many ways to film a driving experience, others driving or even the exciting features of parked cars to create interesting videos.
  4. Plan an outing to experience the Charlotte Auto Fair: While this is a free event, you can plan a day to attend the Auto Fair, and make a day out with plans to potentially purchase parts or other items from the event. This event is from April 7-10, 2016 and features many outstanding vehicles, restoration parts, and supplies for almost any vehicle.
  5. Purchase a pass for the Exotic Car Drive: This experience is located in Kannapolis, NC, which is about 30 minutes outside of Charlotte, and priced at $149 per ticket.
