Storing Your Vintage Vehicle

If you own a restored vintage VW Beetle, you’ve no doubt spent a lot of time and energy transforming it into the beautiful vehicle it is today. As you undoubtedly already know, it’s very important to properly store your vehicle while you’re not driving or working on it. We recommend investing in a solid car cover for your whip when it is outside. Here are a few tips for selecting one: 

  • Cotton or Flannel Fabrics Breathe Well and Allow Air to Circulate
  • Polyester-Blend Fabrics Trap Heat and Moisture and Can Damage the Paint on Your Car
  • Plastic Films Don’t Breathe at All, So Don’t Buy One
