Classic Car Restoration Tips- Get Rid Of Cigarette Smells-AirVidox

So you’ve spotted an amazing classic car, but it has been smoked in with abominable disdain by the ignorant.

Do you buy the car or write it off as a bargain to be missed? The normal route would be to pay around £400 to £1000 to have it completely steam cleaned and then use an Ozone machine to clear out any bad odours.

Even then if the car has been smoked in for years, it may well not remove all the smell.

We heard of a new product that could clean out any smell, and particularly bad tobacco smells for as little as £20.

Reinventing the Luxury Classic Car for the Electric Era By Clive Hartley

Recently, we worked with an engineering company in the Midlands who use additive manufacturing - 3D printing to you and me - extensively. One of the key applications for this, they explained, was to re-manufacture parts for classic cars when the originals are no longer available.

The Great Mille Miglia Race with Bentley

The Great Mille Miglia Race with Bentley

The Mille Miglia starts in Brescia in the north of Italy, descends down the east coast to Rome over two days, and then ends with a single day dash from Rome back up to Brescia on the west coast. It is a magnificent cortege of the greatest racing cars and classic road cars ever built. To enter, the cars must have either been in the original Mille Miglia, or a car of sporting history listed in Palmares Winner’s Lists of international significance. This is about as exclusive as it gets even before the costs of the race and the cars come into it.
