Received Some Holden Gift Vouchers? Here’s Five Ways To Spend Them

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.

Of course, there’s plenty of other items you can choose from, so head over to our website now and choose how you’d like to spend your vouchers!

Why It’s Important To Keep Your Classic Car Clean

British weather in February is never brilliant, is it? Strong winds and relentless rain make it impossible to hold an umbrella up without it blowing inside out, while mud and sludge seem to get on just about everything.
While you’re busy keeping your home and family safe and warm during the cooler seasons, don’t forget to look after your classic car too!

Wind and rain can be a real headache for classic car owners unless you take proper precautions. Water exposure can lead to rust, which in turn means spending money on spare parts, while strong gales and winds can blow stones, rocks and other muddy objects into the paintwork.
That’s why, for this month only, we have a special offer available exclusively to you. Should you spend £75 or more on any Holden Vintage & Classic products, you’ll receive a free Autoglym Aqua Dry Synthetic Chamois Leather with your order.

The Autoglym Aqua Dry Synthetic Chamois Leather has a unique structure that allows it to perform a superior clean to natural chamois leathers. It’s absorbent, easy to use and less expensive than competing products. When paired with some of our other Autoglym cleaning products, you can be sure to achieve a superior look as well as long lasting protection against the elements.

Here’s a few examples of what else is on offer:

The Autoglym Bodywork Shampoo / Conditioner

If you regularly wash your car with Autoglym Bodywork Shampoo Conditioner, you’ll not only effectively remove traffic film and dirt, but will also preserve the finish and appearance of your vehicle. This shampoo conditioner contains additional ingredients that create a glossy water-resistant barrier in order to protect and extend the effect of Autoglym polishes.

The Autoglym Custom Wheel Cleaner

Get rid of brake dust and dirt from chrome, polished aluminium and anodised wheels with the Autoglym Custom Wheel Cleaner. This product contains a special blend of biodegradable surfactants, solvents, and alkalis in order to create a balanced acid-free formulation which quickly and efficiently dissolves brake dust, corrosion and traffic film from even the most complex and intricate wheel designs.

The Autoglym High Definition Wax

There’s no better way of protecting your classic car from the elements than by applying the Autoglym High Definition Wax. It features the perfect combination of carnauba, microcrystallines, waxes and saturated hydrocarbons in order to give a high quality finish with long lasting durability.

Autoglym Super Resin Polish

If you’re looking for a universal polish that can be applied to any paint finish then the Autoglym Super Resin Polish is for you. Not only does it give your car a glossy shine, but protects against unfriendly environments and contains a cleaner that will lift harmful contaminants from the surface.

Outdoor Car Cover

If you keep your motor outdoors on a regular basis, it’s essential it has some form of cover to protect it from wind and rain. This outdoor cover is entirely waterproof and features four air vents to prevent excessive condensation. It comes in a variety of sizes depending on your needs.

The Autoglym Collection Valet Kit

If you fancy going all out, then why not treat yourself to the Autoglym Collection Valet Kit? It contains everything you need to keep your classic car in tip top shape all year round. This kit includes shampoo conditioner, super resin polish, screen wash, bumper care and much much more.

Remember, neglecting to protect your car during the cooler reasons will only cause you more problems in the future. If you invest in a good set of cleaning products, you’ll be sure to prevent damage and keep your car looking slick and clean.
