How do you get the car inside of it?

http://www.carcapsule.com/

You drive the car onto the black base mat, put the clear cover over it, zip the clear cover to the black base and turn on the small fan. I've had this for six years and it keeps the car very clean and I can still admire it through the clear cover. The fan circulates air helping with humidity. It also keeps out bugs and other pests.

I've let stray cats in my garage during winter months. They have poked holes in the clear cover with their nails but it never got deflated and the car has never been damaged.

I had seen another company in the UK have a similar capsule yet with a frame to support the cover but I cannot find it anymore. A frame system would make getting the car in/out of the capsule easier/quicker.

I found the other company's similar capsule with a frame which should take care of the biggest problem with my current one (getting the car in/out). I might get one of these. Year One sells these in the US.

Ever since I moved to Ohio 6 yrs ago, my community has had stray/feral cats. At one time as many as 14. I started caring for them. I trapped and got them spayed/neutered and feed them daily. Now the population is down to five. In the past, I let them in my garage during the winter where I had pet heating pads setup for them. This year I have built them a heated three level cat house.

That's great to hear you're taking care of them. One of my coworkers was really into taking care of feral cats.

What a nifty cat house, Heinz! Not only do you house your vehicles well, you take care of all your feline friends well also. Kudos to you for caring for those in need :-)

Classes start tomorrow. My Chemistry recitation tomorrow was canceled though. I have a massive break between my Math class until my Survey course in the afternoon. It's awesome.

A lawyer I worked for in Texas had two Ragdolls. They were adorable kitties. We have 3 (a Bengal and two mutts we rescued from the pound). That house you built for the strays is awesome!

We got our car fixed. It's no longer stuck in 2nd gear, thank goodness. Hopefully the weather will be nice so we can go to some cruise-ins this weekend. There are several on Saturday we are considering.

Also, has anyone heard from Gins about how his wife reacted to getting surprised with her new Camaro? I didn't see where he has posted about it. Starting to worry that maybe she's not happy about it.

Hi prostock69.

Can you give us any details on what caused your transmission to get stuck in 2nd gear and what part(s) were replaced?

We are waiting to hear from Gins who has since changed his name to 1 RD JEWL.

Someone needs to park their Camaro outside my dorm. I'm tired of looking at the same craptastic imports all the time.

Ok, near Lane and High. My daughter graduated from OSU this spring in Architecture and is starting her Masters this quarter. She works at the RPAC part time. If you have any questions, maybe we could help.

I loved surveying!


As far as car shows and cruise ins... Most of you are close, come to the Tipp City mum festival on Friday. We will be there for sure. Hopefully with the SS if we get it back by then. It is supposed to be a big to-do. Look for my SIM SS or the BBM IROC. (bright blue metallic)

Wife's Reaction to the Camaro!

Well,

Hello all, I have not been on much the last few days since I have been sittign on the couch with the wife or just enjoying having her around. I will be on regularly again unless I ma out of town, but then Ginger will be here.

Her reaction... all my worries about her reaction were for naught as many of you said she would love it. She drove it to Zeibart to get the underbody, sound proofing and Diamond Gloss applied and got out like a little child with excitement. SHE LOVES IT! We had a neighbor take pictures of when she got home with it so I will post them when I get them.

The Diamond Gloss looks perfect. you will have to see to believe. If it holds up like they warranty it for, it is well worth the $. Sound proofing helped significantly too. They state 10dbs but all I will say, it was immediately noticeably quieter.

Post again soon.

Hi Paul! So relieved to hear from you! I am so glad you loves the car! You are such a great hubby! Can't wait to see your car. I'm still on the fence about the Diamond Gloss. I sure am getting tired of keeping this car polished, though. It's wearing me out!
