Car Covers Recommendations?

I want/need to get a car cover but I have no idea what to shop for. Can somebody fill me in on what to look for and/or give me a recommendation on a cover? I don't really want to buy a cheap POS, I want something to last.

Thanks in advance.

if your car sits out side dont bother, they tend to scratch & promote mold growth.

Check out the covercraft line of car covers. I have the dust top for indoor storage and it fits/protects perfect.

I have a california car cover until I can get my buddies harley out of my garage. I paid about 320 shipped with "Camaro SS" embroidered on the front. It does a great job of keep her dry even in heavy down pours. The only downside is you have to keep an eye on the days where it is going to storm or be windy because you shouldnt leave it on.

I also went to PSU, both Altoona and main campus. My gf still goes there so Ive been up a few times this year to visit her. Ill have to keep an eye out for you next time Im up.

I went to the local Canadian Tire (or I guess any automotive/parts place would work) and picked up an outdoor use cover for $80. Works well nothing but the wheels (slightly are exposed). I need it for this time of year as the pollen and since I park under a tree as the leavs come in it drops those damn 'helicopters' all over it and they actually stain the paint and are a b*tch to get off.

Never covered my old car (Civic) no chance in hell am I letting the Chevy go down that road

I use the GM-made camaro cover, my car is outside all the time and it hasn't scratched the car at all. However, I regularly clean the car.
