Hey roadster groupies,
I thought I might make a couple of suggestions for those that don't
drive their roadsters for a few winter months. I'm sure many already
know this stuff already.
You should set your car up on jack stands high enough to get all the
tires off the ground. This will prevent the sidewalls of your tires
from cracking. Even a new set of tires will crack if not driven for a
few months if the weight of the car is left on them. I don't know
exactly why this happens, but I've seen it lots. If someone knows why
this happens, I'd like to hear it.
Second, put fuel stabilizer in your gas tank and run the engine long
enough so it reaches the carbs. It keeps the gasoline from turning into
varnish and gum and helps with moisture-caused problems.
There are a few other things like putting your whole car in a big
plastic vacuum bag, but that is beyond the scope of my message. :-)
