The following are some tips to help you winterize you classic so it will be ready for that spring tour....

If your car is stored outside or under a shed or a unheated garage fuel and hydraulic brakes will suck moisture rust and seize.  Therefore, it is doubly important to winterize the fuel system and flush the brakes.

FUEL SYSTEM: Be sure to use some form of stabilizer and run the carburetor dry if you’re going to leave the car in storage for any length of time. A gas shut off valve at the tank is a very handy device to have. Whenever you are going to leave your car in storage, just shut off the gas supply and let the engine run until the gas lines and carburetor run out of fuel.  

Brakes: Since brake fluid absorbs water, this might be a good time to consider flushing the system and replacing the fluid. The brake cylinders that don’t rust over the winter are the ones that will work well in the spring. Very Important if your car is kept in a unheated shed or garage.

TIRES: Check for proper inflation. If leaving for a long duration, put it up on jack stands.

Convertible TOP: Leave the top in the up position to prevent wrinkling of the top fabric.

INTERIOR: Clean it thoroughly. Get out those cookie crumbs, potato chips and just plain dust and dirt. Be sure to check interior fabric or leather and clean or condition.

Critters: Depending on your storage area, you may need to protect against moths, mice, rats

BATTERY: Make sure that it’s clean. You can wash it with a solution of baking soda and water and then rinse it off and dry it. Use a battery trickle charger, be careful as some types will over charge your battery and boil it dry.

Art Deco Cars That Are Still Beautiful Today

1936 Delahaye 135 Competition Court Figoni et Falaschi Coupe

Also known as the “Coupe des Alpes”, the Delahaye was a luxury car manufactured by Delahaye from 1935-1954 with just over 2,000 units built in total under designer Jean Francois. The 135 Competition Court had significantly more horsepower and was used predominantly for racing and show.

The body was long and sporty with a wider wheelbase for better handling and control. At the race track, the Delahaye 135 was a successful racer winning both the Monte Carlo Rally as well as the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1938.
