For the speed demon

The Hennessey Venom F5 may hold the title for fastest car so far in 2018, with a claimed top-out of 301 miles per hour. But if you’re looking for something a little more practical, speed is still within reach. Here are 40 of the fastest cars sold in the US today.

Does your speed demon already own a sweet ride? Consider surprising them with a day at the track. Minnesota facilities like the Brainerd International Speedway offer a variety of packages. And remember, keep your speed legal on the road.

For the safety-conscious

There’s no question, minivans are some of the safest vehicles on the road today. According to a New York Times article, “children in minivans [are] 35 percent less likely to be hurt than children in SUVs.” Modern minivans have gotten sleek, and there are plenty of great options out there.

However, a minivan certainly isn’t your only option. Looking for ideas? Here are 7 of the safest cars on the road, according to CBS.

For the technology geek

From lane departure warning systems to backup cameras and infotainment systems, cars are sporting more technology than ever before. Here are 5 other tech features we’re excited to see becoming more mainstream.

In a few years, self-driving cars may make driving irrelevant altogether. But for now, the most important piece of tech in your car isn’t tech at all - it’s you. And at Poquet, we think that’s a good thing. The thrill of driving wouldn’t exist if the car did everything for you.

Looking for a smaller-ticket gift?

If a vehicle isn’t in the cards this Valentine’s Day, there are still great ways to make your favorite car-lover’s day.

Here are a few thoughtful gift ideas you can surprise them with:

  • Windshield Wiper Replacement: Windshield wipers take a beating during Minnesota winters, especially if you use your wipers to clear snow from your windshield. Keep your special someone safe this winter with new wipers. Wondering if it’s time for new wipers? Here are 3 signs it’s time for wiper replacements.
  • Pet Hair Removal (from your car, that is): It can be a challenge to remove pet hair from your car’s carpet. Surprise your loved one with this thoughtful gift. Think it’s impossible? See this handy tutorial.
  • Winter Preparedness Kit: It may be Valentine’s Day tomorrow, but winter is far from over in Minnesota. Keep your special someone safe on the road with these 10 essential items for winter in Minnesota.
  • Cool Car Gadget: For the guy (or gal) who’s always tinkering with their ride. You’re Make their day with one of these car gadgets. http://blog.poquetauto.com/the-best-car-gadgets-to-give-to-the-car-lover-in-your-life
