omg I need a car cover help brah

Looking for a car cover for my Gto. It needs to be an indoor cover but also water resistant. If I open the garage door during a rain storm the Gto needs to stay dry.

Anyone have ideas on a good cover on the cheap?

I had a California Cover for my 55 I paid $400 bucks for it, when I bought my GTO I ordered one off of ebay for $75 and I can't hardly tell the difference.

Wow! That car capsule thing looks pretty cool. I have my GTO under a cover in the garage but the underside still ends up all dusty from air and wind moving around.

Never used this, but I heard it was nice. Rhino Shelter car cover. Drive the car on it, and then zip it up.

I had a buddy growing up that has a rich uncle that has a huge barn with like 10 cars he collected and they were all in those car capsules. Gotta say that was one of the coolest things I've ever seen.

I got it used and it is probably more than 4 years old anyway.

It is very soft on the underside.

That's not going to keep the car dry if it gets wet, but, otherwise, it's a good choice for indoor storage.

Actually it does have water resistance and I saw some pics that show it beading water.
