I’ll be storing my classic over the winter at my sister’s house in her car port. I want to put the car up on “blocks” to keep the tires from getting flat spots. I wont be able to get to the car much to drive it. Where is the best place to place the blocks under the car when keeping the car off the ground for an extended period of time? Any other storage advice would also be greatly appreciated.

It would be good to keep the suspension loaded, with the weight on the tires. The best way to go about this is to get some old crappy rims and tires to throw on.

I washed mine, put it in the garage and put a car cover on it. I'm replacing the tires and engine first thing in the spring so I didnt take any precautions there.

Don't forget to put some 'stable' in the gas tank and store it with the tank full... this way you don't get water buildup from condensation.
excellent! usually people leave a little bit of fuel in or none. great job mccoy

Why keep it loaded? I did hear about doing this before. The problem is I have the 11" FastBrakes kit on the car and most "crappy" rims don't fit! :mad:

Dont worry about the tires getting a flat spot. they will round back out fine. Told this by a nissan tech.

Just becuase they are a Nissan tech doesnt mean they know everything. A Nissan tech told me I was wasting my time advancing my timing, since it would automatically adjust itself back :rolleyes:
