Check the oil.

Classic cars aren’t typically used for day-to-day commutes. For this reason, before taking your vehicle out for a joyride, ensure the oil levels are up to par. If not, running your vehicle with insufficient oil can lead to engine issues.

Flushes and bleeding.

Antique vehicles require a complete coolant flush at least annually to ensure no corrosion takes place. Check with your automotive specialists to see what mixture is best suited for your vehicle.

According to Vanguard Motor Sales, brake fluid is required in order for your car to maintain its stopping power. Brake fluid has a tendency to collect moisture. If it collects too much, brake failure will occur.


Classic vehicles are equipped with drivelines that require lubrication every few months, depending on how often you drive. If you’re not sure about which components need to be lubricated, ask your trusted automotive specialist.
