I have a question about my 1986 el Camino, as relates to how much it has or hasn’t been damaged after a 6 month hiatus from action.
Last July I bought a 1986 el Camino from a private seller. The engine has 100,000 miles on it; the seller had driven it daily and taken good care of it, bought it nice wheels, and gave me all the receipts for it since it was made.
After the first month, the front two tires kept becoming flat when I would drive it, then I went out of the country a few times, and upon coming back I never got around to getting the tags for it (opting instead to use my 2015 Nissan Altima as my daily driver, being the safer / less maintenance option).
I thus let the car sit for about 6 months, from July to February in Nashville, TN, with flat tires.
2 nights ago I went outside and started it up for the first time since then, and it was able to start.
However, I’m wondering how much damage this might have done to the car, letting it sit for 6 months with flat tires? Pistons, tires, etc. - how much damage, both existentially and economically (the “value” of the car, and/or the price of how much it would cost to bring it back into the same fighting form it was in 6 months ago)?
Thank you in advance. My knowledge of cars is very limited other than the basics.
