What also makes a classic car so attractive is that, compared to a used car, it has an hardly any loss of value. On the contrary: a classic car often steadily increases in value over the years. Therefore, for many, ownership is a good investment and a better option than selling the classic car.

Maintaining the value of these vehicles over the long term is probably one of the biggest challenges facing their owners. Although most oldtimers linger in garages, humidity or excessively dry air quickly become a danger.

If, on the other hand, the humidity is too high, there is a risk of extreme damage corrosion, mold and unpleasant musty odor, what affects the condition of the car.

To counteract this, there are various climate managers, such as dehumidifiers, humidifiers or ozone generators, which are designed to provide an optimum environment for the vehicle. The costs for such technologies, however, amount to four-digit sums.
