Manuel Dasilva owns a successful car repair and restoration shop, and is one of the most respected car experts in New York. Manuel Dasilva has his own collection of classic cars as well, but unlike other collectors, he doesn’t just keep them in the garage: he likes to drive them. Sometimes, he even takes them out on longer road trips so that he can experience new places. Whether you are driving a classic car or not, long trips can take a toll on your vehicle (and you!) Here’s how to prep for a great road trip.
- Get your tires checked and your oil changed before you go. The last thing you want on your fun adventure is to have to deal with a nuisance problem like a flat tire or transmission issue. It will also be cheaper to just get a routine check-up for your car than to have to pay for big repairs out on the road.
- Make sure your car is stocked with essentials like water, an extra blanket, a flashlight, etc. More than likely, you won’t need these emergency supplies, but it is better to be safe than sorry, especially if you are traveling during the winter.
- Get a reliable GPS device for your car if it doesn’t already have one. Even in older cars, you can still install this device, and it will be a huge help to you. Many of these tools can even help you avoid heavy traffic or bad roads that could damage your tires. Manuel Dasilva has GPS devices installed in many of his older cars.
