Easy to install, easy to use – and sometimes life saving. Well, I bought a few of these items and I enjoy the way I can take them from one car to the other. I guess almost everyone with a vintage car will understand the use of a jump starter or a dash cam. I leave my lights on every now and then and I don’t want to have any discussions with my car insurance company, so a dash cam is very helpful. 
This is a list of the 7 most useful car gadgets. My latest addition is the Dash cam with Alexa built-in, which is really cool.
