Parking a classic car

Recommended Posts

You do have to be careful depending on the car.

Years ago out on tour with the Roaring 20's Car Club, we parked our Rickenbacker right up next to the windows of the restaurant we all stopped at.

Came out to find that someone had stolen the gas cap off the Rick and the hood ornament off another car.

I have yet to see another Rickenbacker gas cap with the Hat in the Ring logo, let alone see one someone was willing to sell.

Wow!  I was off my computer all day yesterday and missed all the great replies!  Thanks for humor and great advice--what a group!!!

 

Several people asked what the car is.  '79 Datsun 280ZX in pristine condition.  Donated by a great guy to a wonderful charity for the auction.  Definitely less of an antique, I can see, than what a lot of you collect.  But your advice is great!  I'm landing on: enjoy it as a car, park it carefully, hopefully where I can see it, don't hog spaces, don't park in crowded lots, remember that people will probably give it some respect when parking nearby. And, oh, yeah, enjoy it as a car!

 

Also, thanks for other advice, like taking it to an appropriate mechanic for a thorough check--all set on that!

 

And the pictures, LOL.

 

Thanks!

 They are not parked, they are only admiring my car!

Nothing like German engineering! Looks, performance, and comfort all in one package. Nice Mercedes too.😂
