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.
The ONYX indoor car cover is made from a polyester blend which includes Lycra and Spandex and it has a nice satin feel on the top while the underside is very soft. I describe the feel of the ONYX as being similar to a pair of ladies yoga pants. The ONYX is designed for a custom fit for your generation of Corvette and our C2 version fit our ’66 Sting Ray convertible like a glove. The cover features side mirror pockets and the material stretches nicely to provide full protection of the car.
Every ONYX car cover comes with its own storage bag and features a three-year warranty. The covers are priced regularly at $169.99 and are available for all seven Corvette generations, from C1 to C7. A quick check of their website shows they are currently on sale for $144!
We took our 1966 Corvette out to a scenic location in Tampa and gave the ONYX a thorough review. In every way the ONXY exceeded our expectations and we have no qualms about giving the ONYX a 5-star rating. About the only fault we have is that there is no pre-exisiting hole for the rear power antenna, but a quick snip with a pair of scissors fixed that.

Corvette America provided us the ONYX premium indoor car cover for use in the review. All opinions are my own and were not directed by Corvette America.
