Castrol Classics – Clothing, Collectibles and Regalia

The truly dedicated among us will already be deep in planning for all the motor shows, hill climbs and classic vehicle events that they are going to attend this year. You could argue that the racing season never really stopped, winter has only been a chance to catch up on all those little jobs you’ve been meaning to do on your vintage car or motorbike.

If you’ve got a classic vehicle, and plan on showing it this year, you’re going to want to look the part. You’ve spent a considerable amount of time and money getting your vehicle faithfully restored, or simply making sure the little details stay true to the original design, it seems a waste to not complete the look with some genuine Castrol Classics paraphernalia.

Motul Valve Expert – A must have for classic engines

Are you the proud owner of a classic car, bike or boat? Or maybe you’ve got an old Atco or similar classic lawn mower tucked away? Well, if you do, then you’ll be aware of the importance of lead replacement additives. Basically, lots of old engines fitted with soft exhaust valve seats will require lead in the petrol – This lubricates and protects from recession, which is an integral part of keeping a classic engine in top performance. At Opies, we stock a product that is designed from the ground up as a top quality petrol lead replacement additive that is easy to use and gives guaranteed protection – Motul Valve Expert.

Classic car owner? Time for an oil change?

Hi all

Today we’re going to be talking about sump plugs and classic cars. Specifically, magnetic sump plugs and the benefits of upgrading to one with your classic vehicle.

We all know that owning a classic car is a blessing as well as a curse. A double-edged sword, to be dramatic. You’ll need a considerable amount of patience, passion and know-how to make sure your classic car makes it to all the shows and rallies each year. Even the most enthusiastic DIY mechanic can be at his wits end before you even get it on the road. However, at Opies, we believe that this is a price well worth paying to be the proud owner of a vintage vehicle – those classic curves and that unique driving experience don’t come for free.

Due to the way a classic engine is put together, and the tolerences inherent in its design, they naturally have slightly “dirtier” engines in comparison to your run of the mill modern car. Dirt and metal particles are your enemy, and they run around in the oil, which of course leads to numerous wear and mechanical issues. Thankfully, your prayers have been answered – Opies have a simple solution which will drastically improve the efficiency of your engine and make it all the more reliable. Gold Plugs!
