WELCOME TO THE WORKSHOP
Where the team make their resto pledges for 2019…
‘I’ll finish my two major projects: Jensen and Riley, ready for Spring.’ Danny Hopkins, Editor
When we talk to our classic-owning mates, we often get the impression they stop their hobby for winter. To some of them it is a time for putting things away and shutting the garage door. ‘Laying up for winter’ is the phrase we often hear. It makes sense I suppose. Carefully putting your classic under a sheet means it doesn’t have to fight the salt sludge or put its electrical systems to the sword.
But it’s also a bit of a shame. I wouldn’t necessarily suggest you do what we do every winter and use your classics, or even buy classics specifically for use during the dark months, but don’t forget your cars. Why not give it a run on a dry day when
‘I’ll get my secret project ready for our big Winter adventure.’ James Walshe, Deputy editor
the winter sun is bright and the prospect of overheating doesn’t exist. The roads will be relatively empty and you will be making your car happy – they are meant to be used.
Why not get on with those jobs you’ve put off for a bit, or you can even plan your 2019 adventures. Whatever you do, keep yourself engaged with that car you love and keep reading PC, we will be with you all the way.
Finally, this winter, why not have a think about your local club, whether it is a branch of a national car club or a local group of classic petrolheads. We will soon be launching a major competition to discover Britain’s best classic car club – don’t miss out!
