I am being offered a really good deal on a car which I have always wanted. It is currently 30 years old, and has only 47,000 miles. It has been dealer maintained all its life, and currently looks and runs like new. This model has many great features which I really appreciate, that just aren’t offered anymore.
The only problem is that I don’t actually need another car right now, but I would really like to store this classic until I actually do need it, which might be a few years down the road. I would like to talk about the feasibility of doing this. If not feasible, then I may just give away my other car and drive this one.
I live in southern Arizona, and I have a carport which is open on two sides, and obviously has a roof and two walls. So I would want to use some type of car cover to protect the paint, which is nearly flawless against the sun on the side which gets afternoon sun.
I am looking for advice and personal experience about storing such a vehicle long-term, and protecting it from deterioration.
