Car Covers for a Mid-Life Crisis

No guy wants to admit it but we all get there. It sets in on some of the unlucky ones at 40, yet some of us lucky jokers don’t get slapped with it until we're rounding the corner to 60. The concept of wanting to own a sports car or a boat is what some guys never imagine until one day their buddy rolls up in that new corvette with the top down to play golf. All of a sudden, maybe I wouldn’t look too bad in one of those. Maybe for you, it’s a BMW or a classic version of your favorite sports car. For me, it was the car that my dad had always dreamed of but never had the chance to build. A 1965 Shelby Cobra Factory Five Roadster reproduction. Never in a thousand years could I afford to plunk down the millions that it would take to own the real thing.

However, the reproduction would be something that I could build myself and then possibly be something I could pass down to my kids and grandkids. So off I went scouring the web for motors, chassis, bodies and the list goes on. Fast forward a year and a half or so and the car of mine and my dad’s dreams was coming to a close. This deep blue beauty was a rumbling horsepower factory and a corner-hugging beast. I would spend weekends cruising through the South Carolina backcountry. I kept my prized, mid-life crisis mobile tucked safely in my two-car garage beside my wife’s SUV when I wasn’t driving it. The only problem arose when I needed to leave my work of art out in the driveway to have access to use my garage for other projects.

I thought to myself, maybe I should look into car covers. That would be a great investment for me. I grabbed my iPad and slid up to my workbench. The number of sites carrying car covers was astounding. I read a few car cover reviews and looked at quite a few different car covers. I ended up at the Car Cover Worlds site. They seemed to have the widest selection of car covers for FFR’s. There were quite a few options that I was interested in. I looked at the Weathershield HP car cover as well as the Ultratect car cover. These seemed to be two of their best car covers for my application. I was a little unsure so I gave a quick call to the customer service line. They were very knowledgeable on all of the car covers on their site and steered me in the right direction. I am very happy with my purchase and will not hesitate to refer friends and family to Car Cover World.
