How often to do clean your classic or modern cars? And which air freshener do you use to keep it smelling sweet?

Air freshener? In a classic car?

I believe The PPs favours mackerel air freshener, or I think that was what was said elsewhere.

Nah, more like these:

Back to the real world. The reason for asking is because I used to buy Feu Orange and they seem no longer to be available in the shops. This is a little wheeze to try and recapture the halcyon Triumph days of the early 80s.

Believe it or not given that I post on here, I don't own a classic car, though that is not for want of trying.

I drive a six-month-old Renault Clio dCi, and I use the following Autoglym products on it: Shampoo & Conditioner; Super Resin Polish; Extra Gloss Protection; Fast Glass; Bumper Care and Instant Tyre Dressing.

Not every product is used at every wash, I hasten to add, but the Autoglym brand overall does an excellent job. With my previous Clio, at six years old and with 100,000 miles on the clock, people still used to think it was new.

It isn't a pre-requisite to own a sports or classic car. My recent addition, compared to some on here, is incredibly modest. The first classic I've owned for close on 25 years.

I know, but one day, I will own one.
