Some of you may be lucky enough to live in climates where you can use your toys year-round, but in a lot of the country racing season has come to an end and the car will be packed away in the trailer or shop for its annual winter hibernation. With most of our staff living in the upper Midwest or the Northeast it’s definitely that time and it got us thinking about what we should do to protect our own cars, so we turned to the experts.
No strangers to storing race cars and hot rods, our friends at Speedway Motors have provided some helpful advice about winterizing all of your rides. Found in The Toolbox on the Speedway Motors website are two helpful pieces, one for winterizing your race car’s fuel system and another about protecting your hot rod or muscle car from cold, critters (our personal tip is peppermint bags under the hood, seats, and in the trunk), and corrosion. A little extra preventative effort before storing the car can save a lot of frustration and money at the start of the next race or car show season.
