Having a classic car can sometimes be an investment or hobby. You will always want to keep the classic car in the most optimal and best condition possible. During the winter months, you probably will not be driving it. The best thing to do is to properly store the car during those months. You will first want to fill the tank with premium gasoline. This will help prevent the chance of moisture to build up in the open space in the tank. If this happens, then the tank can start to rust. You can also add a fuel stabilizer to the gasoline as well. With the fuel stabilizer, you can prevent the fuel from clogging up.
Classic Cars and Fluid Levels
You will want to check all the other fluid levels as well. Having the oil changed will need to be done to help keep the engine operating properly. Before you store your classic car, make sure that all the fluids are at the desired amount that is needed. You can also bring your car in so we can check each fluid level and top them off. When you check the fluids, also remember to look over the tires. The best way to prolong the life of the tires is to put your car on jack stands. This will reduce the amount of weight on the tires and suspicion. Overall it will also prevent the tires from getting a flat spot on them.
Keeping the battery in the proper condition is important too. You will want to remove the battery from the car. If you notice the terminal is corroded, you can clean it carefully. Then you should store the battery on a shelf or somewhere safe. At the very least, you will want to remember to keep it off of the ground. If you place the battery on the ground, you can expect it to lose charge quicker. If you need a new battery, make sure to contact us so we can advise you on the options you have.
