Es­tab­lished clas­sic-car shows abroad usu­ally have a class made espe­cially for patina or pre­served cars. There’s some­thing about these time cap­sules that ev­ery­one loves, and if you own such a car, you’re pretty lucky. How do you stop the de­te­ri­o­ra­tion? We’ve heard the best way is to keep driv­ing and main­tain­ing it like you would an ev­ery­day ride. Sounds sim­ple enough.
