Building your ‘Baby’: So you finally got that project car you have always wanted. Maybe you found it at a classic car auction, or maybe you just happened to spot it with a big “For Sale” sign in the windshield, and maybe it is a family heirloom of sorts, passed down for generations, each one putting its own personality into different aspects of the car. What now? You may have a great vision of what the car could end up looking like, and maybe you know the steps to get there, but what about the right person to ask when something unexpected comes up? I think we all know the feeling of beginning a classic car restoration, or just about any small household project, and believing we have all the right tools until mid-fix, we realize it’s time for a run to the department store or local car garage…some of us even have a story or two about realizing that just as a mysterious fluid is leaking onto the freshly power-washed garage floor.
Long story short, it is always advisable to know of a good place to look for when things go wrong, or if you just want a second opinion before laying down the racing stripes. We have compiled a list of more than a few places to look for just that. Check them out on our website by clicking here. You will find the perfect places for help with everything from classic muscle cars, collectible cars, hot rods, street rods, and so much more to help with your classic car restoration.
As the new year begins and we make resolutions on everything from losing weight to finally dedicating more time working through that growing pile of books on the “to read” list, we hope that you’ll also be finding a little more “Tinker Time,” a special time, especially on spring and summer days when you spend time elbows deep in grease and oil, tinkering away at your baby-your very own project car.
