With 2018 only days away, you might be considering a series of ambitious New Year’s Resolutions, most of which (let’s face it) you’ll have forgotten about by Spring.
So how about making and sticking to a resolution for your classic car instead? After all, we’re sure there’s plenty more you’d like to do with your vehicle, so why not plan ahead and make it happen?
Here’s 5 resolution ideas you might like the sound of:
- Show your vehicle off at an event
Each month of 2018 will play host to numerous classic and vintage vehicle events across the country (and the continent!) These superb events are overflowing with likeminded classic motoring enthusiasts, breath-taking displays of spectacular cars and motorcycles, and once-in-a-lifetime opportunities to meet motoring legends. If you couldn’t attend any of these events in 2017, make a New Years Resolution to drive your beloved vehicle to a show or run near you over the next twelve months. We regularly update our blog with the latest classic car events, so keep an eye out in January for the next update! Or, come along to the annual Bromyard Speed Festival in April and talk to us about it in person!
- Give it some TLC
All of us at some point have been guilty of procrastinating over much needed classic car restoration work. Whether your speedster requires a lick of paint or a whole new chassis, make 2018 the year you act. Holden Vintage & Classic offer servicing and restoration at our Bromyard premises, or alternatively you can purchase the parts and accessories for a home garage restoration from our website.
- Spruce up your car’s interior
The outside of your car might be gleaming, but a grubby interior can make for an uncomfortable drive. If the seams of your leather seats are lined with crumbs, make 2018 the year you complete a full spruce-up of your interiors. We recommend purchasing the Autoglym leather cleaner, hi-foam interior shampoo and hi-tech interior microfibre. You can also use Autoglym fast glass to wipe down both sides of the windows.
- Learn a restoration skill
If you have a home garage and enjoy dabbling in the occasional restoration job, why not give yourself the gift of a new skill next year? There are a number of regional car restoration courses you can attend ranging from beginner to expert, or alternatively you can visit us at our premises and make an enquiry in the workshop about your particular interest. From there, you can be advised on parts and tools you will need to complete the job at home.
- Find your car a friend
If you’ve enjoyed a long and passionate relationship with your classic vehicle(s) and wish to expand your collection, 2018 might be the year to do so! There are a number of classic car auctions you can attend across the country, including a monthly auction hosted by Brightwells, or, if you think your next purchase could be a Morgan, our Holden Morgan showroom is frequently filled with some of the most spectacular Morgans around. Enquire with General Manager Katie Turner on email@example.com or visit the Holden Morgan website for an up-to-date listing.
Whatever resolution you decide on, we’re here to help you make it a reality. From the team at Holden Vintage & Classic, we wish you a Happy New Year!
