    My 2014 car is going to be in storage for a significant period of time. Probably around a year. It will be taken out and driven every 2-3 months.

    I'd like to get a cover for it that will be good enough for a garaged vehicle but not be super expensive. Nothing fancy just don't want any scratches on the car from the cover. Does not need to be tough enough for outside use.

    Suggestions appreciated. Thanks.

    Covercraft.com has a verity of indoor and out door covers. I do have an outdoor cover for special situations. When I put mine in for storage for the winter I use it for that also.

    Covercraft on mine over winter when I am not working on the car. The one I have is 8 years old and still in excellent shape.

    I have a Boss 302 car cover, use it when car sits in my garage for few weeks if am out of town for work. It's perfect fit for like the mirrors and antenna. Mine was new and got it from a Boss 302 owner that had no need for it for like 150 bucks. Had it 5 years now and no complaints.

    My wife makes fun of me with it saying am a fake, as car cover has the Boss 302 stripes and says Boss 302 on the side of it lol

    Thanks for the pointers. Hate leaving the car hard parked that long but will have my step-dad drive it for me every 2-3 months. Out of state moves are a huge pita and I'll be back for the car once things settle and I've got a house w/a garage for it again.

    Will be putting fresh fuel in it, stabilizer, extra psi in the tires, changing the oil, and parking it w/some rubber mats under the tires.

    Another Covercraft fan/user...every winter (fm Nov - Apr).

    Also, don't forget to shove some tin-foil balls in your exhaust pipes & throw dryer sheets in the car (front-back floor), to keep critters out.

    I have this one I bought from Ebay:
    https://www.ebay.com/itm/201607446024?ViewItem=&item=201607446024

    I use it for outdoors and fits tmy 2007 pretty good with the CDC Duckail spoiler. It won't cover the CDC Classic chin spoiler though.

    Been using for a year now and this saves me from washing my car every week and mostly so it doesn't get baked in the sun as where it sits the sun hits it from dusk till dawn.

    Had a California Car Cover for my 02, worked great...
    My Roush came with a Roush cover, not sure who makes those but they work well too...

    I purchased mine when I bought my 08 from the factory. Perfect fit. It's made for the side mirrors/antenna protrusions and has the see thru plastic for license plate with all the mustang logos.
