10 Tips to Keep Your Classic Car In Good Shape

(RareCarMarket.com) – A classic car is an investment in money and time. Whether you drive it or not, you need to provide your vehicle with regular maintenance because you can’t store it without giving it some thought.

If you’re like many collectors, your classic car will likely spend a lot of time in storage. Here’s a look at some tips to keep in mind:

  1. Consider making repairs and doing routine maintenance tasks before storing the car.
  2. Store it in an area away from sunlight in a climate-controlled environment, if possible. 
  3. Choose a site where you can avoid parking it on gravel or dirt because these surfaces allow moisture to get into the car.
  4. Avoid closing the car tightly; leave the windows cracked to prevent stale smells. 
  5. Disconnect the battery to preserve its life.
  6. Ensure the car is clean before covering it because dust and debris under a cover can scratch the paint. 
  7. Drive it at least once a month. 
  8. Check the fluids regularly and top them off as needed.

Once driving season comes around, don’t just pull it out of the garage and drive. Prepare your car for hitting the roads. 

  1. Consider giving it a good cleaning and waxing. 
  2. Go through any routine maintenance tasks to check for issues and ensure it’s ready to drive.

Taking care of your classic car requires some effort. However, following a few standard tips can help you confirm you’re doing what’s best for the vehicle, whether you’re getting ready to put it in storage or taking it out for the first spin of the new season.
