Car Cover

Any suggestions on a good quality car cover? My car will be park outside for the next several months and need a cover.

Thanks for any suggestions.

If you can wash your car regularly I'd recommend the GM cover. For some reason people keep putting car covers on cars that are dirty and you'll likely scratch the clear coat eventually. Keep in mind no cover is going to stay on if the car is really sitting around doing nothing, the wind hits 20 MPH and its off. If that is the case you should find a storage facility and follow the manual with the storage process.

Here is what I used for my car. $99 dollars from northern tools. Find a store nearest to you and go pick one up...they will honor the internet price also. Very easy to set up...takes bout 30 minutes. I just screwed the base of the poles to the asphalt and drilled holes through the poles and base to secure the two together so the wind wouldn't blow it away. It works really well and keeps much of the dust off of the car...I was gona buy a car cover, but a good buddy of mine with a black vette told me that removing and putting on a car cover will actually scratch a black car...
