Hitting the Apex!

It’s December and the cold is finally here. Is it early? Maybe. Or maybe it’s just dreaded so much that when it does come around, no one is ready for it. December means many things to people. 

To a race car guy like me, it means that now is the proper time to hunker down and get busy on the car that’s sitting on jack stands in my garage. To me, race cars are especially cool because they don’t need maintenance for the winter. 

On your daily driver, you need to make sure your coolant is in good shape so that the heat works properly. We get a lot of funny looks explaining that your heat relies on good coolant, and that the A/C has nothing to do with your coolant, but these are both true facts! You also need to make sure your battery is up to the task of starting your car when it’s 9 degrees and you have half an inch of ice on your windshield. That isn’t the best time to find out your battery is bad. Race cars don't need batteries and coolant while they sit in your garage. 

What am I getting at? Sell your car and buy a race car! 

However, my wife tells me that may not be good advice for everyone. If you’re concerned about your daily driver, get your car in and get it checked out by a reputable European auto repair shop like ArborMotion. That way you don't have to worry. As for the race car guy or gal in your life, stop saying they’re hard to shop for. Surely you know how to order race car parts. If you don’t have a race car guy or gal, we’re out there, you just have to look!

Happy Holidays!
