For car lovers, their world comprises of their cars. Many people do not understand the obsession with cars, but others know better. And for solely this reason those who posses classic cars from bygone eras know their value and appreciate their importance. Just because they are no longer suited to travel in the modern, sleek highways and with today’s overwhelming traffic, does not mean that they have to be trashed or sold off at low prices. In fact many people still possess cars that have been passed over to them by their great fathers and grandfathers. And they take pride in owning them because firstly, it has been in the family for generations and mostly because they just don’t make them like it anymore!However, on of the obvious question that arises in the process is that of maintenance. Cars that are as old as 1930′s have a completely different look and the technology used back then for automobile engineering has evolved tremendously over the subsequent decades. So it is only obvious that the parts available back then would not be available now and the car itself would suit more appropriately in a museum than in your garage. Only be sure about driving your car if you know that you can get it fixed if anything goes wrong with it. After all, if it breaks down for some reason, you can always keep the car in your garage with its perfect body restored, but you are bound to feel low if you know that it will never run again.And for solely this reason, it is advisable that you do not drive your classic car in heavy traffic. If you really do want to flaunt your car, and then do it in vintage cars rally and the like, but to try and pit it against the contemporary, speedy cars in the overloaded highways is just not a good idea. This is not an underestimation of you car; it is just called being wise. Your precious 1940 Rolls Royce or 1955 Chevrolet will definitely attract curious and appreciative gazes initially, but also loud honks a couple of minutes later!So for everyday use, if you want to keep your car engine running, start it every alternate day and do a few rounds in the early morning in the empty by lanes of your locality. Things might be a bit easier if you live near the suburbs. Also, do not try to replace the original parts for new in the hope of getting its speed higher. If luck favors, you may get it right, but if it doesn’t, then you would only end up damaging you favorite car. And after all, you love it because everything about it is classic. So why try to change anything about it in the first place?
