The sunglasses are light and flexible and made out of titanium hence the almost $700 price tag. These are definitely a luxury item but the design and durability will ensure that they last for a very long time.


Project Car

1967-Chevrolet-Camaro-ProjectWhat better way to make Father’s day more special than actually spending time with dad and the best way to do that is to work together on a project car. If you look through your local classifieds, there’s an almost endless list of vehicles for you and your dad to work on for months or years to come. Looking over the local Vancouver classifieds, you can spend as little as $2000 for a 1968 Beaumont Custom or as much as $6800 for a 1971 Chevrolet Camaro project car. The choices are endless but no matter what vehicle project you choose, you’ll be doing it with your dad.
