My mind wanders when raking leaves and sooner or later, I start thinking about preparing for winter. Before the really cold weather sets in, I need to finish the leaves, disconnect and store hoses, add stabilizer to my gas cans stored in the garage…and prep my 68 Nova for winter hibernation. If you live in an area prone to nasty winter weather, you have probably developed a winterization and storage check-list for your classic car similar to mine. Common winterizing steps include washing and waxing your vehicle, filling the gas tank and adding fuel stabilizer, changing the oil and filter, adding air and removing tires, checking the antifreeze, removing the battery, and placing your car on jack stands. Since everyone here makes a living talking brakes it should not come as a big surprise that we suggest one additional step: winterizing your brake system. Winterizing is fast and easy—and the entire process is completed in three steps.
