Accessories? More like necessities

Setting up shop in a folding chair and cracking open a drink before the players wake up might seem like a bit much to some fans. Somehow, it all seems more understandable doing it under the shelter of a tent in your adjoining parking spot.

"Understandable" probably isn't one of the words your friends and fellow fans will use to describe the Ironman Rooftop Tent from Ironman 4x4, and that's why it's perfect. For $1,200, you will have all of the exaggeration and attention the name promises. As you might expect but will still be surprised to discover, the tent is designed for the top of your car. Nearly 8 feet long, the Ironman includes a ladder for easy access from the grill and common folk downstairs to your superfan suite above it all.

You will still need that adjoining parking spot, however. With a retractable awning and an "annex," which will proudly hover over your neighbor's feeble get-together, you will have more than enough space to show off to as many friends as you like while still keeping the lunch assembly line moving from the punishing early dawn sun.

Accessories? More like necessities. Priming this party will require an early start, so add on Ironman's Supernova "High Intensity Discharge" lights for $770 apiece. Another must-have is the Ironman 50-liter travel fridge large enough for a few 36-packs. It retails at $825.
