Check your lights, re­flec­tors and horn. And please don’t for­get to feed your hide. Make sure that all of the car’s light­bulbs are op­er­at­ing as they should. In fact, re­move the lenses and, in the case of old fil­a­ment-type bulbs, un-bay­o­net or un­screw and then re­fit them, just to make sure that their con­tact points are clean and bright. Also make sure that all re­flect­ing sur­faces are clean and shiny. Give that horn but­ton a press as well.

In­side the car, that leather hasn’t seen any am­ple cheek ac­tion in a while and may be a tad dry and brit­tle. Give it a feed for a week or two be­fore ask­ing it to sup­port any win­ter overindul­gences. Ul­ti­mately, try not to leave your cher­ished car un­used for the whole of win­ter. Air­flow, heat and move­ment are key to the gen­eral me­chan­i­cal and bod­ily well­be­ing of au­to­mo­biles.
