Things Every Classic Car Buyer Should have on Hand

Heading out for a day on the road in your classic car is much different than heading out in your everyday-use modern car. If you’re a new classic car buyer, there are a few important things to know. Modern cars tend to be a little bit more secure, and, essentially, a little bit more familiar. This means you may not need a trunk-full of tools and accessories for every single drive. But, when you’re taking your classic car out for a spin, there are a few things that you may want to have on hand to ensure that you overcome any speed bumps that may arise. 

Here are some classic car trunk essentials:
·         Basic mechanic tools – when you’re driving a modern car, chances are slim that you’ll need to fix a loose fender mid-drive. With a classic car, no matter the condition, you just never know. After 25 years, any classic car could become finicky, which could leave you stuck on the side of the road. Having some basic tools on hand, such as a wrench, screwdriver, and spark plug socket, will keep you driving securely, mile-after-mile.
·         Electrical tape or duct tape—you just never know when you might need a quick fix for a faulty wire or loose screw. Having tape on hand will help you fix minor problems when you’re in a tight pinch.
·         Fire Extinguisher—Classic cars can be delicate and prone to overheating. Avoid costly damages by keeping a small fire extinguisher in the trunk.
·         A clean hand towel—A clean hand towel can be used to buff out an unexpected small knick or scratch. A towel will also come in handy to clean your hands after making mechanical adjustments to your cars. After all, who wants to ruin a classic car’s interior with grease-covered hands?

Classic cars, while a joy to drive, require a bit more care than your regular modern-day vehicle. Any classic car buyer should have these simple items on hand to ensure that their ride always functions as smoothly as possible.
