THIS MONTHíS MAN-CAVE MUST-HAVES

1 BACK TO THE FUTURE

2 SHANNONS CLUB

Shannons has launched an app for your phone or tablet. It gives Shannons customers the ability to instantly request a quote for an insurance policy, capture incidents and upload claim information. It also provides direct access to the club and the auctions. Weíre not sure if it prevents you bidding on a tempting classic while drunk. That could be dangerous.

Available e from the App Store or Google Play.

3 PONTIAC TIN

Artificially aged to look agreeably vintage, this tin sign features the classic Pontiac logo and would look great on the wall of any man cave or garage. It measures 40.5x31.5cm and costs just $18. Although Pontiacís been dormant since 2009, GM still holds the rights to the name. Maybe itíll rise from the dead again and we can all become dewy-eyed over G8s, the Commodoreís ugly American cousin. bit.ly/1OtAKPo

6 ITíS A BUICK, JIMÖ

Mr Spock: bad haircut, lousy banter and a certain lack of imagination in the wardrobe department. Whatís not so widely known is that he drove a Buick Riviera when he wasnít on the bridge of the Enterprise. In actual fact it was actor Leonard Nimoy who owned the Buick, and this die-cast car is based on a photo of Nimoy in full Spock getup, who treated himself to a í64 Buick Riviera and posed with his new ride on the studio backlot.
