Many Americans have become accustomed to the same routine every summer. As the holidays approach, we begin to imagine all of the projects that need our attention and we naively dream that we will get to do most of them. Like Charlie Brown trying to kick that football, we forget how quickly last summer passed.

How To Care For A Classic Car

Categories: Tags:
Caring For Classic Cars

When you see an older classic car on the road, do you wonder about the story that goes with it? If the driver seems elderly, maybe he is the original owner. If the driver is young, did he buy it on the market or inherit it from his grandfather? Whoever owns it now, classic cars that are still on the road must have had an early owner who was committed to proper maintenance.

The most satisfied owners of classic cars must surely be the ones who have a connection to the human story that goes with it. If Grandpa babied his favorite car with decades of TLC then passed the car along to his favorite grandson, the resulting treasure is more than a well-maintained car. One constant factor that must recur in all of these stories is that the car owner must decide early in the relationship that this vehicle is worthy of excellent maintenance.

You may imagine that all classic car owners are do-it-yourselfers who lovingly maintain their own vehicles, and that stereotype is based on reality. However, it is possible for contemporary “autophiles” to uphold a high standard of maintenance for their vehicles without spending a lot of time under the hood themselves.

Do you have a car that merits preservation, one that you would like to pass on to your children and grandchildren? If so, you will need to decide early to give it the best care. Even if you enjoy tinkering with your own vehicle, busy people with the wherewithal to buy and maintain impressive cars are often blessed or burdened with busy schedules that do not leave an excess of leisure time. Also, some jobs are just too big for the shade tree mechanic to tackle, and for those you will need a reliable professional.

At Cassels Garage in West Melbourne, we are ready to help keep your future classic car in top condition. We are a family-owned shop well equipped to provide routine vehicle maintenance or do major repairs on your car.

A customer came home from a trip and brought his truck into the shop because it had bucked and jerked intermittently while pulling his “fifth wheel” camper trailer. During a scheduled appointment, the technicians at Cassels Garage checked the fuel and computer systems and test drove the truck about forty miles, but found nothing.
