How to Stay Busy When Your Muscle Car Has a Breakdown

One of the best ways to stay busy when your muscle car breaks down is with fixing your muscle car, of course.  But sometimes you simply don’t have everything you need to your disposal and have to order parts from online shops and wait for the delivery time.  Sometimes you just don’t have the cash available to you to go shopping and many muscle car owners simply don’t have the time to do the repairs themselves and send in their beloved wheeled beasties to professionals that can do the repairs for them.  If you are suddenly feeling a bit lost with too much time on your hands then staying busy can help you pass the time.  It is also good for your health to get a regular break from your favorite hobby so you can catch up on all of the other important things in your life.

How to Stay Busy When Your Muscle Car Has a Breakdown

Reconnect with your wife

If you have a wife then the first thing that should be on your checklist is to spend some quality time together.  It is so easy to get so caught up in your hobby and in street racing and so easy to neglect those that have been there for you all along.  Reconnect with your wife by doing something she loves to do.  Something like watching Stephen Collins shows, going to the movies, shopping or spoil her a bit with a special spa day for the two of you.

Spend time with the family

Family time is always time well spent.  Reconnect with your children and find out what they are up to, if there are any major changes in their lives and see if your kids are still emotionally stable and happy.  It can be so easy to overlook problematic behaviors and warning signs of a much bigger problem in young kids and especially in teenagers with their mood swings.  Spending time with your family will help you determine if there are any problems that require your attention.

Go on an outing

An outing like a fishing trip with friends, a bowling expedition with your fellow street racers or a trip to a fun water park is always a good idea since the fresh air and change of scenery is always great for promoting mental health and wellbeing.

Do something completely controversial

Try to do something you have never done before at least twice in a year.  If you cannot work on your muscle car then this is the perfect opportunity to take on some brand new journey, try something that you have never tried before or go and see something new in a different place.

Go watch a race

Of course one of the best things you can be doing when taking a break from vehicle repairs is watching a race.  Check out some of the local races in the area and go and scout for some good ideas or be inspired by some of the designs of other muscle cars that race the streets.
