    Seeing listings at different retailers but many seem generic or built for outside. One company that touted theirs as specially made for “your Italian car” are sold generically on ebay at half the price. Disappointing.

    Need one for winter. ideas?

    California car cover. I have one for my GTB.

    It was custom made and took about 5 weeks. Very nice product.

    I believe it was the Softweave cotton indoor. Was around $400 shipped. I've had the cover almost 5 years, no issues. I called them and sales rep was very helpful. Depends how the car is stored when covered, indoor /outdoor, ect.

    They list Richbook .That looks like a good cover, but isn’t the one you show. Not sure if that price is USD or?

    The soft weave looks like a good choice, I like the idea of the flannel, the one listed above it, but it doesn’t come in red. They do have black. I’d like it with a logo too, but I don’t see that offered.

    For my Corvettes I’ve always had a “Corvettes Under Cover” brand, love live those. Beautiful, soft very custom made. Double stitched openings for antenna, just nice stuff. I think they are out of business, of course.

    I purchased a custom made fleece cover from Specialised Covers located in the UK (specialisedcovers.com). A bit on the expensive side, but I was able to custom design the color, piping and select the Ferrari logo for the front.

    This looks nice, too. Define “a bit expensive.”

    NOTE, I see the prices now. Not crazy.

    SD, looking at their site, the best indoor cover comes only in black. Which was yours?

    Also, do you know if they ship to US? Thanks.

    I got most recent from the UK. It was ~ 80 - 90$ US and available in red / blue / black / grey. I got a blue one and am very happy. It's very stretchy, and keeps the car dust free. I wouldn't use outdoor for any extended period. I think it's polyester? I replaced a breathable one made from some fancy material which rotted away into a dusty rag. After 10 + yrs, the car would be a dusty mess every time I used it. I think (hopefully) this one will age better. 30+ years ago, I bought a fancy embroidered cotton/poly one from BHMC for $400 ish. I still use it on the same car. The color is fading slightly, but is still a very good piece.
