If you have a classic car lover in your life, stock up on miniature versions of his favourite muscle cars from the past. Miniature model cars come in a wide variety of colours and models. You can purchase them assembled already--or you can buy kits that the gift recipient can use to assemble on her own time. If the car model is especially delicate--or if you want to create a museum feel in your gift recipient's home--you may want to consider buying a glass display case for the model cars.
