The City of Fallbrook has its fair share of classic car owners. You can regularly see them driving around town. You’ll always see several classic cars in the Fallbrook Christmas Parade, at the Avocado Festival, and of course, at the annual Fallbrook Vintage Car Show during Memorial Day weekend. Fallbrook has a very active Vintage Car club, making the city a great place live if you have an appreciation for classic cars.
At Fallbrook Local Locksmith, we understand that classic cars need special care. They are often very valuable—especially to their owners, for whom the cars often have sentimental value as well. Whenever we are contacted by an owner of a classic car, we count it as an honor, since they are trusting us to work on one of their prized possessions.
As experienced locksmiths, we’ve worked on all different models of classic cars. Our locksmiths have the skills to “handcraft” a key if needed, and they also have the patience and persistence that is often required when working on vintage automobiles. The locks in classic cars can be very delicate, requiring finesse. They are easy to break if you are too forceful, and in some cases, they are not easily replaced. But even when a job is difficult, our Fallbrook locksmiths won’t quit until the job is done!
Too often, vintage car owners take their cars to a mechanic and have the ignition replaced when they don’t have keys for the car. The problem with this is that now the car owner has to have separate keys for the ignition and the door locks. When you take your car to Fallbrook Local Locksmith, we can “originate” the key, providing you with one that will start the car, as well as unlock the doors, trunk, and glove box. As far as the cost goes, hiring a Fallbrook locksmith to complete the job is typically more cost effective than going to a mechanic.
Recently, our locksmiths were given the opportunity to work on two vintage cars owned by Fallbrook residents. The first was a 1960 Cadillac Eldorado. The car needed to be moved, but there were no existing keys for it. One of our locksmiths made an “original” key for the ignition that also was able to open the doors, trunk, and glove box. The second car was a 1962 Thunderbird. This car was also in need of a new set of keys for the ignition, doors, and trunk, and one of our locksmiths was able to provide the owner with exactly what he needed.
