Just before I stopped working on the car I managed to acquire a cover from a friend who owns a really nice show condition '66 coupe. Apparently the cover shrunk a bit in the tumble dryer, and had to be replaced, but it is perfect for my needs at the moment.
I got the cover right before Mustang Monthly published an article on how to choose the best cover for your car. This cover wasn't mentioned, but I really like it, just don't put it in the dryer!
The best car covers come with a plastic ring insert that you fit yourself to ensure that the opening for the antenna is in exactly the right place for your car. This one is sewn in, but I think it would be better to install either a retractable antenna, or no antenna at all, and it's the latter route that I'm planning to take with my car when I get to working on the fenders. Let's face it, I'll not be listening to AM radio in the car.
It's not like I need to worry about my paint job just yet, but here's a perfect example of why you need a car cover:
I looked at renting a flatbed trailer from U-Haul, but I don't have a hitch on my car, and my old garage is on a very steep hill, so I decided to throw money at the problem, and let someone else worry about moving the car....while I watched.
