What are the recommendations for winterizing a car? My driving days this year are quickly coming to a close. I may have a few more weeks if I'm lucky, but I doubt it.

Do I need to do anything special with gas, tires, battery, etc?

-Kevin


Opinions on winterization are sort of like asking for opinions on what brand oil filter to use -- everyone has an opinion and may get fairly 'vocal' about them.

Here are some things I try (sometimes don't get the time) to do:
*Fill gas tank with non-ethanol gas and put in a stabilizer
*Change engine oil
*Disconnect battery and put a smart trickle charger on it (maybe even take battery out and put it into a heated area that won't freeze)
*Support the car on Jackstands to get the load off the tires, and air up the tires maybe a little more than normal
*Make sure your antifreeze mix is stout enough for expected cold temps
*Put some type of rodent repellant inside the car, under the hood, and in the trunk
*Check fluid levels and grease so car is ready in the spring
*Wax the chrome

I'm sure others will have additional items

Home from points southwest. Scored a 2103/6 chassis and running gear and miscellaneous bits-n-pieces.

This gets me to 3 356 complete (mostly) engines, one block and crank, and one complete one coming next week. Plots-n-plans are brewing.



Sounds like Fred wants some version of a 16 cylinder Packard using two 356 engines.......712 cubic inches of Packard power! That Fred has you wrapped around her little paw!

I saw that one the other day and noticed that it's one of those ultra-desirable Barn Finds. And I noticed the premium for that tacked onto the price.


Now, if it were an Estate Find, maybe . . . .


:rolleyes:


Yeah, but estate finds are usually clean. Everyone knows that the barn dust/crap adds at least 150% to the value.
