Classic Tips for Taking Care of Your Classic Car

There’s no doubt that you do your best to take care of your classic car, and this includes making sure it is covered with classic car insurance. Still yet, even some of the most basic and easiest ways to keep your car looking its best often get overlooked. Here’s a quick look at a few classic car tips for making sure your classic car always looks good in Lafayette, Colorado.

Wash it, but not too much

Is there such a thing as washing your car too much? Yes there is. In fact, the most you should wash your antique car is once a week. However, if you drive it through mud or salt or other harmful elements, you’ll want to wash these off as soon as possible.

Have it detailed

Your classic car should be detailed at least once a year, preferably once every six months. Even if it sits in a garage most of the time, it will still collect dust, and therefore it needs to be detailed.

Drive it frequently

You should start up your collectible car at least once a week and drive it at least once a month. You don’t have to drive it far. In fact, a half mile down the road and a half mile back should be sufficient.

Cover the car

When parking the car, it should be covered in a soft cloth that has no texture. You might think that since it’s being stored in a garage that it doesn’t need to be covered, but in all actuality it does.
