Always Store Vintage Automobiles With A Car Cover

May 18, 2008
Vintage automobiles are a source of pride for car collectors who are taking care of them. Everybody likes to look at these old classic cars at the car shows with a sense of nostalgia. To look at a antique automobile is almost like taking a time-travel machine back to that point in history. People remember their early years, and it gives them a good feeling. They seem to almost give a feeling of euphoria to people who see the car that they used to drive as a teenage live in person. When a car has a like-new shine, a big factor is usually a classic car cover.

Vintage cars need special care for a lot of reasons. When you think about it, this generation is entrusted with maintaining the cars of the last generation. If future generations are to see the classic cars in their original state, then we should maintain them properly. Care goes a long way. It is always easier to prevent problems before they begin. Covering your classic car with an automobile cover is a vital element to maintaining your car with excellence.

Because the cars have been out of circulation for so long, it is often hard to get a ready-made cover for a classic car. It is possible to find a classic car cover retailer or maker over the web. Maybe even eBay, but sometimes you can find them on eBay. If nothing else, you can find someone who makes car covers.

Car covers keep the dirt and ground and moisture from accumulating on your cars outer body surface. When these things collect on your car, corrosion can take place. That is the nightmare of the classic car owner. The paint job, chrome, trim, and other parts of the car's exterior can be susceptible to corrosion. The first line of defense is the car cover acting as a barrier.

When shopping around, we suggest that you consider first where the car will be stored. There are different micro-climates in different locations. Cars that are kept in a garage do not necessarily need the same conditions that a car that is kept outside in the sun or in the shade. The fabrics will need to be different, as well as other properties of protection.

While a cover's ability to shed water is important, you also need to consider breathability. Breathability allows airflow through the material itself wicking away moisture from the surface of the car body. This is what you need. But please listen to me. Never, I mean N-E-V-E-R... Go to Wal-Mart and getting a blue tarp to put on your car. THAT, my friend, is a cardinal sin.

Softness in the fabric is very important. You definitely do not want your paint job to be scuffed by a rough material that is dragged over your priceless vintage vehicle. It would be enough to make a grown man cry to see a beautiful paint job ruined, especially an original paint job!

How thick a antique car cover is also makes a big difference. The thicker the car cover's material, the more fortification you get against minor dings and scratches. To have the right protection with the right material and to prevent this kind of occurrence from happening is worth much more than the price of the antique vehicle's cover.

Finally, if all efforts fail, you need to seek out somebody who makes car covers professionally and have one custom prepared for your vintage automobile. The costs may be higher than what you expected for the high quality cover, but the rewards are far greater!
