If you live in an area prone to nasty winter weather, you’ve probably developed a winterization and storage check-list for your classic car. 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. For those of you nodding your heads, thinking “that sounds exactly like my fall routine,” we would like to suggest one additional task: winterizing your brake system.
We have reached that time of year to put our toys away because winter is upon us. Much of the country has experienced unseasonably warm temperatures this year allowing us to enjoy our classic rides a little longer but the clock is ticking and winter storage is right around the corner.
