    There is nothing like the glory of restoring  a classic car.

    Show it Off

    Don’t let your classic car just sit there! Keeping it in a garage, gathering dust is probably why it needed to be restored in the first place. You need to take your beauty out for a drive every so often. The minimum recommended amount to drive your vehicle is once per month. Having a classic car is a statement. So, get out on the road and make it.

    Proper Storage

    When you aren’t driving your car, proper storage is the key to keep a classic in mint condition. You need to keep your car out of extreme weather conditions and temperatures. Too much sunshine can fade your paint. It is best to make sure the area you store your classic is dry, ventilated, insulated and temperature regulated.
