'Tis the season for holiday cheer, and all that. But for car-crazy people, it's also the season for a heap of seemingly useless automotive gifts, most of which will be stowed away until your next white elephant exchange or passed along to the novice driver in the family.

Well-intentioned relatives or friends often think they're getting something good, something thoughtful, but in reality, these gifts are often pointless, or even embarrassing to use.

Of course, you can't go wrong with some car-guy gifts like racing school [nudge, nudge], or any number of gifts—as seen in our gift guides from last year, here and here—that help you take on added projects or let you express your automotive passion with a little style.

On the other hand, there are lots of ways to be led astray. For those who don't have a lot of experience buying gifts for the auto-savvy, click through for seven automotive gifts that are potentially the worst.

  1. I think the screaming muffler would be a great gift for the family member that is a menace on the road. At least people will know in advance to watch out.
