Winter Auto Storage Solutions from California Car Cover

Winter weather is upon us, so it is time to start thinking of ways to protect your vehicle during the harsh winter months. We at California Car Cover have put together our list of recommended products for the best in winter storage and protection for your automobile.

If your vehicle has to sit outside during the rainy and snowy seasons, then one of our custom fit California Car Covers is the best way to start. We have a variety of materials designed for protection from the elements. If you visit our website or give us a call, we can suggest the best material for the application. If you are just looking for an indoor car cover to keep the dust off your classic car until spring, we have some great materials for that as well. 



If moisture or damp air in your garage or work shop is an issue, then one of our Zerust storage bags just might be the solution. This storage bag prevents rust and corrosion inside your vehicle. 

Not going to drive your classic car or spare truck for the next few months? Our of our battery monitors, such as the classic Battery Tender Plus, will maintain power levels in your vehicle and prevent dead batteries.



Keep the winter elements out of your garage with a Storm Shield Threshold Kit or bottom door seal. The threshold or bottom door seal kits will prevent water or dist from seeping into the garage when the weather changes. These products make sure your garage door has a nice even seal to protect your garage flooring. 



The easy to install Garage Door Insulation Kit will prevent extreme temperature fluctuation in the garage. The kit just need to be cut to fit and simply adheres to any standard aluminum garage door. 

Stay toasty in the garage with the portable Yellow Jacket heater. This compact heater provides plenty of heat for your garage or workshop.






Race Ramps Flatstoppers prevent flat spotting of stored vehicle tires. Flatstoppers more evenly disperse weight on your tires to protect tires from flat spots and damage. They are an excellent product for any stored vehicle.

If you and your car must be outside when there is rain or snow this winter, here are a few products that California Car Cover recommends to protect your vehicle.

Weathertech Digital Fit floor mats are custom fit for your vehicle's year, make and model. These mats are molded to cover a maximum surface area inside of the vehicle to improve upon a vehicle's factory floor mats.


Snow and ice build up on the windshield can be a nuisance and safety concern. The Snow Shade and Snobrum products prevent and move snow or ice build up on your vehicle. The Snow Shade simply covers your front windshield, so snow can easily be removed. The foam padded Snobrum easily pushes snow off of your vehicle. 


Our California Tire Covers extend the life of the vehicle's wheels and tires. Our tire covers provide protection from the elements, such as sun, rain, snow or dirt. They are excellent for extended storage vehicles that must sit outside.
Please call California Car Cover or visit our website for additional information on products seen here. California Car Cover is a mail-order/ e-commerce auto accessory company based in Southern California.

1956 Chevy Wagon & Shasta Trailer from our December Catalog Cover


The December edition of the California Car Cover catalog features a 1956 Chevy Beauville Station Wagon with a matching 1965 Shasta Airflyte trailer. We thought this wagon and trailer would be the perfect "Winter Escape" vehicle for Santa Claus.

The wagon and trailer belongs to the Kleckner family from Southern California and we were thankful they were able to assist us with our holiday photo shoot.


The '65 Airflyte trailer has been fully restored and painted in India Ivory and Victory Red to match the station wagon. The interior has also been restored to fit the 1950s-1960's era styling of the wagon.








The '56 Chevy wagon still has the original Bel-Air interior.



The station wagon has a 305 engine under the hood.



For those of you who did not receive a copy of the catalog in the mail, below is the final product. Thank you to Alex, Sean and Mark Kleckner for assisting us with our annual holiday photo shoot. If you want to get a cool catalog like this from California Car Cover, please sign up for one on our website.


Check back in the coming weeks for photo highlights from the final Pomona Swap Meet of the year, plus the Mooneyes X-Mas Party and much more.
