10 Best Father’s Day Cars Under $30,000

With Father’s Day fast approaching you may still be stuck looking for a last-minute gift. Instead of the standard Father’s Day trinkets (aftershave, bowling ball, Hawaiian shirt) why not celebrate Dad with something you know he’ll love? Sure, these cars are pricier than cologne, but at under $30,000 (using Kelley Blue Book’s Fair Purchase Price) they’re all still great bargains. And isn’t Dad worth it?

2020 Chevrolet Camaro

With a price of around $24,144, the 2020 Chevy Camaro has a youthful spirit that will put a spring into your father’s step.

Around $27,367 gets the man of the house into arguably the manliest muscle car on the market. Nothing pays better tribute to classic American muscle than the brawny Dodge Challenger.

2020 Fiat 124 Spider

The low volume sales on the 2020 Fiat 124 Spider makes it difficult to calculate a Fair Purchase Price between the $27,613 invoice and $28,335 MSRP. But if Dad’s an empty nester and/or retired it’s time to give his practical thinking and try out a 2-seat roadster. Based on the Mazda MX-5 Miata, the Fiat 124 has its own distinct style and personality. Find a Fiat 124 Spider for sale
