Fathers Day is fast approaching and we have loads of great Tools and Fathers Day Sale Items ready for you to wow your dad with. We made up a quick questionnaire for a few of our Eastwood Dads about the celebration that is Dad!
Meet John S. He is our E-Commerce Marketing Analyst and handles our eBay, Amazon, etc stores. He just so happens to be a motorhead AND a great Dad! Check out what John had to say in response to our questions below.
Tell us about your pride and joy(s) (your kids of course!)-
I have a 17 year old son that just got his driver’s license. Now I have an excuse to buy another car. I have a daughter that just turned 12 years old. She likes to attend the local cruise nights with me. She also has her own collection of Hot Wheels Dune Buggies.
2. What would you prefer for Fathers Day, a new pair of socks, a tie, or tools and why?
I would prefer to get a new tool as a gift. I am not the type that wears a lot of ties and I would rather buy my socks. You can never have too many tools. I would enjoy getting a set of the Sunex Impact Sockets since I find myself reaching for the impact wrench and using chrome sockets too often (which is a big no-no!).
3. Did you get your love for cool vehicles with engines from your dad? Any fond memories of your dad and you working together?
My Dad owned his own garage. He would also work on cars at home almost every night. Some of the cars that stick in my mind that he would work on was a Red 1969 428 Mach 1 and a 1953 Corvette. I remember he was always buying cars and fixing them up. It seemed like we owned a new car every month. I went to work with him when I was 15 years old.
4. If you could hand down any tools from your collection down to your kids, which would they find the most useful?
Since it seems like they are always asking for screwdrivers I guess that would have to be it. I can never find my screwdrivers; this would be a nice gift for Father’s Day.
5. What tool do you reach for the most when working around the garage or house?
Recently I purchased a ratcheting wrench set we just started to offer. It is amazing how much easier it is to use a ratcheting wrench over a standard one. I don’t know how I managed without them all these years.
