A Message from Our President



It’s hard to believe that March is here and it feels like May! This early spring weather has been unbelievable and I have seen the commercial that the opening of Dog & Suds is here! I guess that means one thing. Get those cars back out and enjoy the days with a drive to get a root beer float. Don’t forget to take someone with you! Take your sweetie, take a neighbor, take a friend, just take someone and enjoy that antique or classic car. Once again we have another great St. Patrick’s Day gathering being planned by the Luenz’ s and we sure hope that you join us for some great food and social fun. We can’t wait to see our members that have been gone for the winter and hope that you enjoy the rest of your time away before you return to join us on our outings. Don’t forget that if you have a fun trip idea, we need new host to plan and guide us to keep the fun going! See you soon in those beautiful vehicles!

Motor on!

LIHAC President

Tech Tip

 

Spring is coming and that means that you prized old car will be hitting the road soon, before cranking it up and going down the road some items should be checked for your safety and peace of mind.
1. Check the brakes, press hard on the brake pedal, is it firm or does it slowly go down indicating a leak?
Check the inside of the wheels, is there brake fluid present indicating a bad cylinder.
Inspect the brake lines for heavy rust, are the brake hoses in good shape? 
Check fluid levels, if brake fluid has no been changed for several years, it probably contains moisture, brake fluid attracts  moisture and that promotes rust, not good for the brake system.
2. Cooling system, is it full? Look for coolant leaks in the heater hoses and radiator, hoses, are they in good shape and not swelled and soft, a blown hose will leave you setting beside the road.
How long has it been since you have changed the antifreeze?  I add water pump lube and antirust every 2 years to refresh the coolant, but it is getting harder to find.
3. Tires: Check the pressures, tires will always loose a little air and though they look inflated even a slight loss will cause poor handling and tire wear, check the tread, also check for cracks in sidewalls, how old are the tires? Is it time to replace.
4. Check all lights, especially brake lights, make sure the battery is at full charge and generator is doing it's job.
5. lastly, are you due for an oil and filter change? suggestions by Harold Williams
