Travel tools

Owning (by now) multiple classic cars increases the need for tools within the vehicle. Oldtimers simply require a little more love and attention than modern cars do. This however doesn’t mean that it is completely unnecessary to have some tools with you.

On this page I will keep a list of tools that I found convenient, which I will update from time to time. The need for most tools is found out the hard way. Hopefully I can save you the irritation of this when you are stranded somewhere without that one tool you figured you’d never need.


  • Hammer
  • Spanners
  • Screwdrivers
  • Pliers
  • Spark plug socket
  • Jack

So you are stranded somewhere and disassembled the car to a point where you found the part that needs replacement. Wouldn’t it be convenient if you would have actually brought that part? Bringing a spare car for parts might be a bit much, but there are several components that don’t take up much space and allow for you to continue your journey after a quick fix.


  • Spark plugs
  • Spark plug wires
  • Belt
  • Oil
  • Tie wraps
  • WD-40
  • Fuses
  • Light bulbs

Obviously my lists aren’t complete. I don’t daily my cars and therefore just haven’t experienced all the troubles that come with doing that. So please feel free to post your suggestions and I will probably add them to my lists (and cars)!
