If you’ve recently been given one of our Holden Vintage & Classic gift vouchers, or are thinking about buying some for a friend, we’ve got plenty of fantastic classic motoring equipment, accessories and clothing that you may be interested in. If, however, you’re feeling a bit indecisive, here’s five ideas on how you can spend your gift vouchers so that you get the best value for money.
1. Stock up on maintenance essentials
Maintaining your classic vehicle is critical to ensuring it runs for a good long while with minimal problems. Neglected cars are more likely to end up in the garage and will rack up large bills for the owner! To avoid the inconvenience and expense of a broken-down classic car, make sure you’re sticking to a maintenance routine. Cleaners have varying purposes – but all vehicles will need a decent bodywork shampoo and conditioner. You’ll also be wise to get an interior leather cleaner for your seats to keep them in tip-top shape. To cover all grounds, why not get the full Autoglym collection which also includes polish and wheel cleaner? Now, good maintenance requires more than keeping the car nice and shiny. You’ll also need good lubrication designed to keep your car’s working parts in optimal condition all year round. We’re pleased to stock some excellent automotive lubrication brands like Castrol and Millers Oils which provide high quality oils for your brakes, engines and chains.
2. Look dapper in brand new motoring clothing
It might be that you’re well stocked up on classic car maintenance essentials but need a motoring wardrobe makeover. If this is the case, look no further. Whether you’re headed off to a classic motor show or simply want to look the part as you drive through the countryside, we have a huge variety of classic motoring clothing across brands like Belstaff, BSA and Grenfell.

3. Add some electrical accessories to your vehicle
It’s important to customise your car to your liking, and you can do this by adding some extra details here and there. Whether you’re looking to upgrade your aerial or install a 40 watt loudspeaker, we have all the parts you need. For those of you that enjoy a Corona cigar as you drive, we have cigar lighters that can be easily wired in too!
4. Treat yourself to a new tool kit
Can you really ever have enough tools? Every classic car owner needs to have at least a basic tool collection so that you can get to work on making minor repairs should you need to. If you think your spanners are looking a little tired, why not upgrade and get yourself a 14 piece spanner set? For more complex work, we have engine overhaul kits, carburettor adjusting tools and metal working tools. Once you’ve selected a range of new tools, you’ll need a fresh tool bag to put them all in. We offer a range of fabric and leather tool bags and tool rolls so that you can find the right one for you.
5. Give your motor a lick of paint
If your car would benefit from a slightly brighter body, why not treat it to a paint touch up? We stock POR-15 and KBS paint systems with rust prevention properties to ensure you keep pesky rust at bay for longer. If you regularly display your engine, you might want to consider using POR-15 engine paint to give it that extra special detail.
