Get Your Classic Car Ready for Cruise Season

Posted on

For classic car owners, the arrival of warm weather means it's time to take the cover off your classic car and get ready to show it off at show events and the spring/summer cruise season.

Getting your beauty in tip-top shape probably involves a wash, wax, polish, and detailing, but don't forget to extend the same care to the under-the-hood elements of your vehicle!

Vintage cars are especially susceptible to engine corrosion and overheating, and while classic car owners may think of those problems as the price you pay for loving classic cars, there's actually a simple cause, and an easy solution!

Corrosion and over-boiling are caused by water. Traditional antifreeze is 50% water, so by using regular coolant, you're exposing your classic car to the main culprit that eats away metal components and can leave you with the hood up by the side of the road.

The solution? Use a coolant with no water! Evans Waterless Coolant is a glycol-based fluid that contains no water, so it eliminates many of the problems of water-based cooling systems.

The lack of water in Evans coolant prevents metal parts from corroding, and Evans can run at a higher temperature without creating steam and boiling out of the system. That means even if the engine of your classic car is running hot, the metal won't exceed a critical temperature and your vehicle will continue to run smoothly.

Using Evans in your classic car not only provides maximum protection against engine corrosion throughout the life of the coolant, it ensures you never have to worry about overheating or boilover again.
