What to get the hot rod farmer in your life for ChristmasNovember 30, 2022
Please use this buyer’s guide in conjunction with my podcast by the same name. There I will explain the value of each tool and why it a must have for your hot rod farmer.
Though all of the items listed would make a wonderful gift, use them as a catalyst for ideas. For example, you may find something similar that would be a better choice for your hot rod farmer, at a lower price point, or easier to obtain. Also shop around. The prices I listed are the suggested retail.
