St Helens Classic Car Club / Association

We have recently joined our local St Helens Classic Car Club / Association with our Lancia Delta Integrale Evolution as our offering.

The St Helens Classic Car Club / Association was formed in 2001 with the first car run starting at the Lea Green Train Station car park. It went from there to the Stork pub in Billinge for a coffee stop and then back to the Micklehead pub to finish where all the participants got a plaque on the day. A run which will be repeated this year sometime in late December.

The car club welcomes all cars of any age and all they insist on is that you care a lot about cars in general. The membership at the moment is running at 40.

They visit car shows throughout the year, some are club stands which are booked by the members of the Board and they also have other events such as drive out days ,family fun days etc.

The club meets every 3rd Thursday of the month at 19:30 at the Bull And Dog Pub on Clockface Rd, Clockface by the Lea Green Station .

If you have an interest in cars come and join us! or Visit the St Helens Classic Car Club / Association Website Today

Too Many Layers Car be a Bad Thing.

Its temping when buying an outdoor car cover to assume that the more layers the cover has the better it is.

Modern fabrics such as our Stormforce, Advan-Tex or Guanto materials have a sandwich type construction, enabling the cover to breath yet be waterproof and offer great protection from the elements.

After many years of evaluating and testing fabrics, we came to the conclusion that depending on the materials used in its construction, 3 or 4 layers were best. They offered protection from the elements, were gentle on your car yet remained breathable.

Once a cover has 5 or more layers it becomes less breathable and more likely to trap moisture inside.

Cars on the Coast

Bird muck on your car is never good for its paint and laquer, but Seagulls can be real problem if you live on the coast, especially if their diet is particularly acidic. This can be caused by them eating a certaint type of shell fish or similar at any given time.

Add into the mix the car being left for a week or so in the height of summer over the holiday period and this makes fitting a car cover essential. One than can be easily cleaned and is non absorbant.

Visit today for your Seagull resistant Car Cover!

Bespoke Cycle Covers

OK so you are into your cycling and you have a nice and very expensive race bike that's your pride and joy. Way to expensive to leave in a shed or garage so it sits pride of place in your living room or bedroom or hallway.

Its probably state of the art and made from Carbon Fibre ( They all are these days ) and one day, the sun is shining, life is good, you reach for your steed and shock horror there is a chip, scratch or worse on the frame.

Someone has simply caught it with the hoover, bag or similar and its potentially ruined as with carbon fibre a chip can soon become a crack.

The answer is one of our new bespoke soft, fleece, tailored made indoor race bike covers. Made from the same Softech, non scratch, fleece material we use for Performance Supercars they will protect your bike from dings, scratched, dust, hair ( in the chain ) and worse.

Available in the colours of your club or team, they are available to buy online from Coveryourcar here.

So protect your investment today and dont chance it!
