If you wish to own a classic car like classic car enthusiast, John Rosatti, then it is important that you understand how to properly take care of it so that it will remain looking and performing well for many years to come. There are several things that you can do throughout your maintenance routine that will help to keep your car looking and running its very best.

No matter if you only drive your car to major car shows in the area a couple of times per year or if you enjoy driving your classic car occasionally for fun weekend trips, you need to take care of your classic car in the same way that you maintain your regular car by keeping it clean and changing the oil on a regular basis. However, if you keep your classic car in storage for long periods of time, it is important that you drain your car of all its fluids including anti-freeze and water so that nothing will freeze up while the car is not in use.

There are several classic car maintenance problems that can occur which can be easily fixed if you have the right tools and get to them in time. Oil leaks are one of the most common maintenance issues that are faced by classic car collectors, explains John Rosatti. The three most common areas of a car that are the most likely to end up with a leak include the valve covers, front crankshaft seals and the rear main seals. These parts can easily be replaced with the assistance of a few common mechanics tools and are typically not very expensive to repair.

Another concern that many classic car collectors seem to have when it comes to maintenance is the rubber seals that can be found around the doors and windows of the cars. These seals are important to help keep unwanted elements and the wind noise out of your car while you are driving it down the road. The main problem with these seals especially if they have not been replaced for many years is that they wear down easily from consistent use plus they can also dry out from too much exposure to the sun.

You can easily replace the seal by using a putty knife to scrape away the old seal and then add more residual glue to the surface before you apply a brand new seal. Cleaning the area on occasion can help keep your seal in good shape for a longer period of time. You can purchase vinyl or rubber treatment solution for your car that will help to keep the seal soft and durable for many years to come.

Classic cars, like those owned by John Rosatti are an investment, no matter if you rebuilt the entire vehicle yourself of if you bought the car already re-mastered from another individual, you will want to take care of your investment and make sure that it looks and runs as good as it did all those years ago. By keeping up maintenance routines on your classic car, you will be able to do just that.
