    image.jpeg OK, now I need advice. Mine is a cheapie, shredding and blows off easily. At work, even with various clips. Tired of laying on the ground fiddling with the cross tie. Want a custom fit, that is taught. Usually end up with a blok-it 200. Stored in a carport, high and dry, cement pad, shade. One side does get sun which causes shredding. About 4 years old At work, if it blows partially off coworkers get concerned.

    I'm a California Car Cover guy too. Not cheap as others have said - but quality and you have options depending on the application. I'd give them a call for recommendations. Mine is stored inside so I got the dust top version - not a good choice for either of you.

      Mopar Nation knows about a bag type cover that seals & will not chafe in wind. I think You lay it out, drive car on to it, zip it up.

          oh ya, I forgot mention NOT CHEAP! but worth every penny...so far. I bought the "Noah" for the Newport about a year ago, so far so good. even with the leaky windshields.

            Well, I can't beat the advice here. The Noah is less at 298.99. Any discount codes or advice before buying? Shipping is free, and the color will match the house...

              Done. Got the Noah. As a Californian, got to pay the 8.75% sales tax.

                I dont think you will be dissapointed, Dennis. Even at that price, its only slightly higher than the cheap-ass ebay ones. Ive already gone through 3 different companies, and cal cover by FAR is the best one. and she fits nice and tight too. not an easy feat considering the Newport is a frickin land yacht. lol
