  • Cheap car cover

    Just picked up a $25 car cover 'fits all' kinda deal at WalMart for the '36 Pickup. Fits good! Covers the whole vehicle. Elastic on the bottom keeps it on pretty nicely.If the truck had a high point paint job then no, wouldn't probably go that route but I just needed something kinda temporary and this one fits the bill. Truck stored indoors in a dry garage.

    We have a custom fit cover on the '30 Roadster from Beverly Hills Motoring Accessories (Calif. Car Cover) and it is a lot nicer car cover, just needed a temporary cheapo and this one works very well.

    Here is a cover i carry around with me for emergency use only. It costs 15.00 and is disposable, but other folks who's cars are getting soaked envy it.
    They are used in body shops etc and have an elastic bottom
    I purchase them off amazon

    This was at the Gettysburg touring class judging this year. The rain moved in for a couple hours


    Yes they do melt Carl

      Reminds me of some of the hair net thingies you see in fast food places every now and then.

      Carl your hair net comment revived a gross happening at a local restaurant last year. We were there with friends, when one guy that had ordered a burrito pulled out a Band-Aid that had been on somebody's finger from the looks of it, it was round. I gag just recalling that. SO, in relation to Mitch's picture, his car cover looks to be a lot better than a 'band-aid' fix!! And just try to pull THAT car cover out of a burrito!!

    Okay on the cheap plastic for a quick short covering, but what is the BEST for covering during the non-driving season (for those of us not in California)?

        I had a friend who kept four of the cheap plastic ones in his car. Whenever it rained at a show, he would put one on his car and give the others away to very appreciative owners. Made a lot of new friends that way. I bought his car and still have three stowed in the car and will do the same if it ever rains at one of our shows.

            Be careful they rip easy, especially on a motor meter.
