    over kill...ive seen pics of it...

    its a car...its suspension will rust, it wont be perfect.....the bubble wont slow it down much....

    put a sheet of plastic under your car to keep the moisture from rising over winter and heat your garage if you can afford it

    i may run a fan in the garage to circulate the air more..

    there will be 30,000 HC's in a few years.......no need for a bubble....its not that special

    I wanted to get one but I got too much other cap in there right now. Maybe clean it out next summer and see if I can get one to fit. Gotta work on getting it heated first tho

    I just installed the Carcoon for my '68 Charger RT Hemi... its a fantastic piece of work. I also installed a plastic sheet on the floor to further protect the Car and Carcoon. I threw 6 dryer sheets in the car too... had to open the unit today to get something in the car, and the whole car and interior smelled great. I would highly recommend one IF you live in a temperate climate. Indiana where its 70 one day and 25 the next is a perfect candidate. Those of you in New Mexico etc. may not have much of a need.

    I am in a very humid coastal area, always wondered if the bubble would hold moisture as my humidity is always high.
    I also see an outdoor bubble is available.
    Outdoor CarCapsule
    Wonder how well that would hold up to storms, snow ( up north) and such or would it blow away like those kids bounce houses as I get big thunder storms. I need something outside for a boat,
    I don't store my cat more than a few weeks ( Im in the south, in T-shirts & short pants and on summer tires all year long:)) so for me my garage and a $29 Walmart Budge car cover, and a battery maintainer does the trick!

    My garage floor is very dry but I damaged my Harley a few years back from moisture coming through the concrete floor in a storage building so depending on your location / concrete a tarp underneath your cat may be very helpful. I had no idea what was causing the moisture issue until the damage was done. I used some plastic under the bike and never had a moisture issue again.

    I have a friend that has one and loves it. You store the car in it with the windows open and there is a small fan to circulate the air.

    I was going to get one for my Hellcat for the winter months but I have a nice garage with a finished floor (no moisture coming up through it) so I think I'm just going to park it and put a cheap generic cover that I have over it to keep it dust free for a few months.

    That's my current plan anyway... I haven't put my car away but I have summer tires and I think the temperature will have me putting it away before the snow. The summer tires really don't have any traction below 50 degrees and they are downright useless when it's in the 20's and 30's. ECO mode helps a lot. The second gear starts and neutered boost tame the beast LOL.

    I know a lot of guys who have McLarens, high end Porsches, and Lambos use the Carcoon (that's where I heard about it) and many of them also put a dehumidifier in the Carcoon to treat the air as it circulates.
