OPEN MIKE Dad been really good this year? How about a Bentley!

It’s been a week filled with what to get dear old dad.

Crazy socks? A hat? A Bentley?

For the hard-to-shop-for dad who has almost everything, a Dallas dealership is offering a special on the Bentley Continental GTC. Simon Crossley of Park Place Bentley describes it as powered by four-liter V8, twin turbo-charged engine, with 521 brake horsepower, and 502 foot pounds of torque. It will also convey three passengers safely up to 193 mph.

But if a faded car screened on a T-shirt is more your speed, I have an Epiphany.

Victoria Martinez of Epiphany in Bishop Arts says customers leave their women on the other side of the street at their ladies' store and they come and shop themselves.

Between boutiques for women in the Bishop Arts District, amidst lotions and potions, salves and ointments, stands this monument to men.

Their specialty?

T-shirts. Old looking ones. Victoria says they're the main sellers -- what men want. They want a shirt to show off.

Of course, if you still have the Bentley on the brain, try this one on. $240,000, special for Father’s Day.

See if it fits. Like I did.

Simon says it is a convertible, so you can safely fling the newspapers up to the homes along your paper route.

I took it for a spin on my paper route. Nice little vehicle to toss the afternoon edition from.
