Cheapest Car Cover

My car cover arrived today. I took 6 king size cotton top sheets that we never use and had my neighbor sew them all together. This is my winter cover that will be going on someday soon to keep the dust to a minimum.

Total cost: A couple drinks at the bowling alley (on bowling night) in a few days.

Whatever works, I couldn't make myself pay 300.00 for a garage dust cover either. I won't lie to you, and say looks good though.

Me neither. But it is for the garage only during the winter.

I use sheets to cover all my stuff during the off seasons. Weather it be my tractor, snowmobile, snowblower, etc. Keeps the dust and dirt to a minimum.

Couldn't see spending money for something that I could make and use that I have laying around. Would rather save that money for a mod.

If it does what you need it to do and you like it, that's cool with me! I should have thought of this as well...

Lol not me. It's a perfect, "free", solution for a garage car. Who cares what it looks like.

Thank - you..........I certainly don't care what it looks like. I just want my Camaro to stay clean and dust free over the winter. In the back ground of the first photo you can see my winter ride. Let it take the salt abuse. I want to protect the Camaro as long as I can.

Funny indeed. Then you would see the snowmobile that is covered too. I spent a part of the last couple days re-arranging the garage and getting things organized so that I can tuck her away as much as possible.

The only thing I miss about Michigan winter is snowmobiling. Well that and deer hunting.

I understand. I tell myself I could do without winter, however it is not going to change and I am not going to move. So find away to live with it. Been snowmobiling for over 20 years. thus the reason for my call sign rtcat600man.
