Now it's not a major upgrade, but these awesome and affordable gadgets will go a long way at updating your old ride. From handy dashcams to a pizza maker, these items will make an older car feel that much comfier!
These days you can never be too sure. A dashcam not only covers your story in the event of an accident but can also lower your insurance rates depending on your carrier. Dashcams are also great at preventing insurance fraud, resolving hit and run accidents, and if you have a teenage driver, will help you monitor their driving habits.

Almost as important as a dashcam, a wireless backup camera will do wonders to update an older ride. You don’t need a fancy car to tell you what to watch out for while in reverse. You can add a backup camera to your old car. We especially like the Magellan Wireless Backup Camera which connects to a GPS device.
