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.
- Spark plug socket
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
- Tie wraps
- 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)!
