Best way to care for a classic?

If you keep an older, more rust prone car outside, does a cover really work? Is it a replacement for a garage?

Yes, as long as it's properly fitted and secured, and is breathable. Just take some precautions - don't put it on when the car is wet, and when possible, make sure the car is clean when you put it on, and don't park it on long grass.

I've used covers from these guys on various Italian cars in the past and have been very pleased with the results
