[REVIEW] The ONYX Corvette Car Cover from Corvette America

We Review the ONYX Corvette Car Cover from Corvette America


Corvette owners know that one of the must-have accessories for their Corvettes is a quality car cover. Car covers come in different blends of material depending on whether they are for indoor use or are designed to protect your Corvette from the elements when parked outdoors, so picking the right Corvette car cover for how it will be used is important.

Like the majority of Corvette owners, my Tuxedo Black 1966 Corvette resides in my garage, so I can go with a lighter material cover as I am more concerned about keeping the dust off the black paint as well as the occasional paw prints from our cat.

A few months back at Corvettes at Carlisle, I was visiting with our friends at Corvette America and we discussed doing a review of their branded ONYX car cover which looked perfect for my needs. So in the mail comes a box from CorvetteAmerica.com and inside that box is the ONYX Corvette Car Cover for the C2 Corvette.
