Fifty years from now, when you're looking back at your life, don't you want to be able to say you had the guts to get in the car?

Quite honestly, I would go for a quality California car cover when they make one for the car.

The GMPP cover decent, but not for much outdoor use IMO.

I always read good comments about the California covers. They make a wide variety as well.

I personally don't have a GM car cover, but I do recall reading a thread or two that mentioned excessive dust and threads being left on the car when people took the cover off. It may have just been one of those things that happen the first few times they get used, but I do remember complaints about it.

Becareful when pulling off the cover as they have been known to scratch paint. I can't speak for the California Car cover, but that was my experience in the past.
