    Someone already posted a pic of a Hellcat inside one of these; thought on this forum somewhere.

    Agree with Jim. Personally I prefer covers. Search of car covers on this forum (I'd recommend this route.)

    I think if you were in a barn enclosed with lots of dust, mice, birds that would be the hot set up. But my garage / storage is food free and heated so just need a good soft indoor cover

    A good mate lent me an outdoor carcoon to keep my 911 in over winter. It is not ideal as you have to drag it over the car and zip the hole thing up but it works. At least I hope so as I cannot see inside it. I would go with a similar design but with a self supporting framework. Much easier to get the car in and out of and you won't risk scratching the paint dragging the cover over the roof of the car.

    I agree a car cover is great for short term storage, 1-2 weeks max, however, I live in the middle of 50 acres with trees, fields and 2 barns in close proximity to the garage. I am out of country for 3-4 months at a time and I am worried about mice, squirrels and other rodents making a home of the car. Car covers only cover the top and sides but not the bottom where all the little critters can come in from. The last thing I need is to come home and the wiring harness is chewed to bits. It is a new garage and is built good but with roof vents and stuff the critters will find their way in.

    Just looking for a good solution for this problem......

    Seems like a nice option for some cases but kind of a pain. I would worry about scratching the car dragging it over the top also. I am going to build another house with a walk out basement. Maybe I make the doors big enough to pull the car in the basement.

    Scratching the car is not an issue,, I can always get a microfiber car cover and put it on before "encasing the car" in the bubble. Oh well,
