There are few things better than taking out your classic car to show off to the world, and the rising temperatures are really the perfect excuse for you to do it. Instead of having to put it in a garage to hide from the winter snows and ice, you can flaunt your car in all its glory. Here are some tips for getting it ready for the warm weather.
A Fresh Coat of Paint
This can really wake your car up if it's been sitting around for the past few months. Paint can fade over time, and your classic car deserves the vibrancy it would have enjoyed when it was first made. Cherry reds, brilliant blues and cheerful yellows can be used to turn a few heads your way. These colors can be rotated every year even, so you have the advantage of driving a different car throughout the seasons.
Test the Top
If your classic car is a convertible, then summer seems like a good time to test its capabilities. Check your top to ensure that it still works properly, and doesn't give you a lot of trouble when going up or down. Not only will you want it to be functioning correctly when you want some direct contact with the sun, but you'll want it to be working properly should an unexpected thunderstorm pop up.
Give It a Thorough Service
Unfortunately, more things can go wrong with your car than just faded paint. Get your car thoroughly serviced by a mechanic who knows the classics as well as you do. Even if you do many of your own repairs, it can help to get a professional with experience to just give it a good once over when the seasons first starts. The more you take care of your car, the less likely it is that you'll end up stranded during an inopportune time.
