Engine Block Coffee Table

Engine-Block-Coffee-Table

The engine block coffee table has become infamous in the automotive community, with instant respect going to anyone who owns one of these beautifully functional pieces of auto art. If you want to get real specific, find a car that your Father really loves, and get him a table made with that block. Or better yet, take his car in middle of the night, pull the block, and ship it off to be made into a table. He might be mad at first, but he’ll come around when he sees the end results.

Prices for these babies ranges quite a bit depending on where you get them, but it seems you will be spending at least $1,000 on one.

    What about the chance to slap Jeremy Clarkson in his smug British face? I hear that guy will do anything for money.

  • Matt

    I would give my dad one of those singing mounted plastic fish robots. Just cause I know it would annoy him.

    Why didn’t cold beer get an honorable mention here? Bud Lite feels left out…

    I got my dad the plunger last year, actually. And it didn’t go over well because he thought it was funny to put it over top of the stick in my mom’s Miata. She got really upset that he switched the gear lever for something so big. The fight was pretty ugly…

    driving schools are a great idea if you can afford it. I did Skip Barber a year ago. What an experience! Worth every penny.

    That guy looks like a worried Mike Ditka, which means this story is bull crap because Ditka never gets worried. He gets shit done.
