What is it about cars that can send ordinary dads into moments of delirium? If you start with the fundamentals, it could be size of the “donk” (motor) and its horsepower. The tyres that have a certain tread that grip like nothing else in the wet. The pure acceleration you get when you put your foot down to overtake on an open road. (To their mates it was a high-powered sports car, when in reality it was a farm truck loaded with produce.) And the cornering. The way you can line up each corner and move majestically through the curves. It’s as if they’ve read every car magazine, believed every new car commercial and then imagined themselves as that Formula 1 test track driver, who can take on any challenge, put any car through its paces and come out a road conqueror.
Most dads simply love their cars. It’s part of their DNA to wash it regularly, polish it, and groom it like a racehorse. Add the best sound system money can buy. Often add very peculiar novelties. Like wagging dogs in the back window along with matching cushions. There’s also the messaging. Bumper bar stickers that read, “If you can read this, then you’re too close”. Or, “I’ll do it tomorrow, today I’m going fishing.” It’s all part of that quirky nature that you might find in a dad who loves his cars.
So, for all those lovable car dads out there, The Complete Basketcase is revved up for Father’s Day. The gift boxed Ben Potts Shiraz from SA is a real beauty; the Shiraz grapes are sourced from 60 year old estate grown vines, matured in a mixture of new and old french oak for 22 months and then bottle aged for one year before release. Madfish Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot always goes down well with its blend of five traditional grape varieties and is crafted to produce a wine with a complete palate profile. If you think he might enjoy something a touch lighter, there’s the Monterra Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir gift box. This Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir contains spicy aromas and flavours of strawberry, cherry, plum and dried herbs, with a moreish and silky finish. Delicious!
Now you don’t have to drive to The Complete Basketcase to place your Father’s Day order. Just call up, talk to the girls and they’ll have your gift boxed wine home delivered. We think he’ll certainly enjoy it more than that new steering wheel cover he’s been hinting about. In addition, don’t forget our entire range of gift baskets and hampers are available with same day delivery to Melbourne. Just place your order before 1pm Melbourne Metro to receive same-day delivery.
