I saw fast freight's snowy challenger. I thought I'd post mine. For those of us without garages, our girls have to weather the elements the best they can.

I drover her home on Thursday night from the airport at 11:30 p.m. and covered her up. The snow came about 6 hour later and we have been hitting lows of 2 degrees F. at night, and highs of 25 degrees F during the day. It's a bit chilly.

BTW, the duct tape solved the issue of a cat that mistook my car cover for a scratching post. It also works as a disguise when it's in the airport parking lot. Nothing special under here ...

Fort Worth, Texas. Actually got worse the next day. No snow, just ice in form of sleet.

Mopar Challenger Car Cover

Hey Hellride,

It is the Mopar Challenger Cover, the part number is

82211328AB

I actually picked it from a fellow forum member. It apparently came with his SRT, but as he has a garage, he did not need the cover, so he sold it to me for my RT. It fits the Challenger like a glove, just slips right no and hugs it nice. I had another cover I purchased from Carquest or some other local place, and it was a hassle. This one is custom for the challenger.

There are other customer covers as well, but this is the only one I have experience with. It's not 100% moisture proof, but still protects it from the sun and rain and snow. If one is looking for over-winter storage then I suspect a rain proof one may be an option.

However, this one has been good for me.

It retails for north of $300, so finding one on ebay or from another user on this form may be a way to go. I see this one currently on ebay for another 20 hours or so, which has never been removed from the box. The tag on the top of the box is exactly like the tag on my box (which I cutout and saved in my Challenger folder, including the 2008 date on it):

I have tried two Covercraft custom car covers- the Weathershield HP and the Noah. The Weathershield was a super light high tech fabric that, unfortunately, only lasted two years. It really flapped bad in the wind and eventually ripped. I am presently using the Noah cover. It is much heavier and is stable on windy days. Comparing the two, I would buy another Noah cover. It also costs less than the $325 Weathershield.

Here is a link to a comparison chart to help you decide on a cover.

...the pictures were just taken with my IPAD, doesn't allow for much editing...Thanx for the nice comments

...I love to shoot cars in the snow and my neighbors driveway has been the setting for lots of different cars, I only have to back about 40 feet across the street

Yea, I remember snow. Detroit, @1972, 10 below, winds from the north a 300 mph, snow drifts over my head and my 340 Cuda going to work. Never again.
