Tips for Daily Driving of Your Chevy Muscle Car

There was a time in the late 60s when cars like the Chevrolet Camaro was a regular everyday car on the roads. During that time, a lot of people owned muscle cars and used them to the fullest. Now, after more than five decades later, these vintage cars are no longer in use by those who have them. They are driven only occasionally and on special days. What would it be like to drive your classic Chevrolet to work or every day like every other car? Cool, right? As cool as it sounds, you must be ready to put in the work of taking care of it and following some important tips. Here's a look at some of the parts of your Chevy Muscle picture car that you must address if you want to enjoy using this classic car whether or not you are a stunt driver.

1. Brakes

The most important part of a picture car that you must check first is the braking system. Check if the brakes are drum brakes. If yes, change them to disc brakes, and for best daily performance, you can do a mix; rear drums and front discs. Check with an auto-shop to know what needs to be fixed concerning the brakes setup and get it done.

2. Cooling

This is another important part of your Chevy Muscle car that you must make sure is in good condition. If the car has not been used regularly for more than a year, it is advised that you check the heater hoses and the radiator and see if they still work properly. You can choose a copper or brass radiator over aluminum radiators even though aluminum radiators are cheaper. A mechanical cooling fan is also better even though it consumes more fuel and horsepower.

3. Tires

Other than the body of a picture car, the tires make the look of a classic car like the Chevy Muscle. Having the wrong tires on your Chevy Muscle can be dangerous if you intend to use the car on a daily basis or as a stunt driver. Check the date codes regularly and see what state your tires are, physically. If they are unusually swollen or have uneven tread-wear, you should do something about it. Stunt drivers typically find the tires useful when doing stunts requiring good grip.

4. Keeping your investment protected

Since you have restored your Chevy Muscle car for regular use, it would only make sense to put in some efforts to protect the interior and exterior of your car. You can use a paint protection film for the exterior and for the interior you can use rubber nylon mats and a blanket seat cover. You should also purchase insurance for the car for full protection.
