I need to store my 67 Fastback outside for a few weeks while I get the garage ready for the restoration. I was thinking I would park it just outside the garage with a car cover on it. I don't want any critters to be making it home and I don't want to get too much water in it. Any tips would be appreciated. Thanks.

Y'know, cars are meant to be outdoors sometimes. Mine's pretty much been outside since July of 1968... :)

Unless you have some sort of particularly nasty car-invading critters in your area, outdoors on concrete with a cover should keep it clean and empty of tenants.

Your plan sounds good. Perhaps you have somewhere where you can park it in the shade with a cover over it. That way it won't get a lot of sun that is hard on certain items. Yes I would keep it covered most of the time. I would assume that you will be nearby and can keep the critters out. If you don't have anything solid to park it on perhaps you can park it on a tarp to keep the moisture from coming up from underneath.

It won't hurt to take the cover off on nice days to air it out.

I hope this helps make you feel better about it.

Yes cars were made to sit out some but necessarily when they are 30 to 40 years old.
