If you’re looking for some great maintenance tips for your classic vehicle, look no further. Proper maintenance of your collector vehicle is extremely important, and you need to be sure to keep these insightful tips in mind before you decide to take your collector car out for a joy ride. Rick Drewry, senior claims specialist at American Modern, has a passion for collector vehicles and has been working on them for 30 years, since he was a child in his dad’s shop. He shares some tips with you on preventative maintenance in this video:

You may not know this, but most of the things you tend to forget are extremely minor, but could could cause an amazing amount of damage.

The highlights include a 30 cent distributor hose that can fly off the distributor and spray fuel all over your engine bay, causing an extremely damaging fire. Make sure your wiring is tucked away nicely, not resting on the exhaust manifold or header, as the heat under the hood will cause them to become brittle after time. Replace the wires and you will cut down on losses on your classic car in the future.
