California Car Cover or GM one? Pics within

So I came home yesterday to a box at my door and there it was.
$224 bucks later after shipping this cover is great, save $20 by calling in and ordering It even has a space for
the shark fin antenna This is the Noah, personal choice, very soft in and out and great for my needs when I take the harley to work. No rally stripes so no GM one for me, saved me over 100 bucks, and this brand has been doing this for years. I stand by there products as this is not the first I have bought from them.


heres the pics, and a before shot just cause.. I mean look at it.

haha, that shark fin pocket is funny! Looks pretty nice, and saving that $100 is always good.

Yup that's the best kind you can get for outdoor. Same material as the Corvette America outdoor cover I have on my bannana.

Also after the initial unfolding, the cover was east to install
and take off, using the roll up on both sides (width-wise) techniques
as suggested in brochure., Make sure to order the holder/bag for it, worth
the 6 bucks.

I've never owned a California Car Cover, but was thinking about getting one for my new Camaro. Which one would you recommend since it will be outside all the time, due to the fact that I don't have a garage.

Go to the website and go through the fields and it will make recommendations as to what cover to get.

F the Police! Ill let them give my ass a fix-it, then attach plate via bailing wire, sign off send them $25 bucks and repeat.

I have never had a front plate nor will i ever.

It kills the look of the car, especially this one.

They will always gear you toward there most expensive cover but at close to $500 no thanks. I have had the noah before as have others here and others i know. My personal fav as well as rep on the phone from CCC. softest fabric and great protection.

Last time on a trip to CA, stopped by California Car Cover on DeSoto Ave in Chatsworth. They were really knowledgable. Ordered two covers, both Superweave. With tax and shipping (had them sent versus try to carry them on a plane) each was $382. They fit extremely well. One red, one black. Completely weatherproof which is nice in Florida between sun and rain.

i think people are complaining that it feels like a windbreaker instead of a car cover and also i want this one because well gm is only offering ones with the stripes and it says camaro all over do you want that type of attention?

exactly everything i have read on here people make it sound like crap. despite the fact that it is water proof or water resistant or something.

maybe its just me but i dont see how this is any better than what GM is offering. this looks like it has holes in it which would let water through.

Its definately just you. The GM one has been discriber more as a dust cover Dude. Just do a little reading. About 150 dollars cheaper and
far better protection.

Kimberly Clark's NOAH material stops virtually all dust, dirt and pollution. Highly water resistant and dust resistant.

The "breathable film" technology is what it you call HOLES. And there Definately not holes...

I would rather trust a long standing company that has proven results for a doing a good job.

and $150 bucks saved once again.
