Monterey California (PRWEB) August 24, 2015

The 2015 Concours d'Elegance, to be held in Monterey, CA, beginning August 11th, will put hundreds of the most elegant restored classic cars in the world on display. Without classic car covers, however, such as those produced by Internet giant Car Auto Covers, these and other classic cars would not be nearly so well preserved.

The 65th Concours d'Elegance car show and auction will be held from the 11th through the 16th of August in Moneterey, CA, and nearby areas. Preserving these cars pristine for the "big show" is no small matter, and customized, classic car covers are a major part of how these "legendary" cars are kept in top condition year-long.

This August 11th, literally thousands of classic-car enthusiasts from all over the globe will converge in Monterey to admire over 500 of the most famous classic cars in the world. The Testarossa from the t.v. show Miami Vice and a 1976 Porsche once driven by Steve McQueen, for example, will both be present. Sales are expected break $500 million, and the top-selling vehicles often go for tens of millions of dollars. After the "main event," which requires a $600 ticket to attend, the general public will be able to view these well-kept classics lined up on Ocean Avenue right next to Devendorf Park.

While most collectors of classic cars cannot afford to acquire the kind of cars that will be on display at the Concours d'Elegance, classic car collecting is, nonetheless, fast becoming a popular pastime and investment strategy in the 21st Century. UV light, dust particles, and other bits of debris, however, can damage these expensive automobiles even while sitting in storage. Synthetic sealants and carnauba waxes can keep them looking their best while in use, but both professional classic car restoration and more "ordinary" enthusiasts resort to specially designed classic car covers to keep their valuable vehicles safe while they linger in a storage garage.

One of the premier manufacturers and online distributors of these custom-fit classic car covers, in recent years, has been Car Auto Covers. By doubling as both producer and retailer, this company has been able to offer its products to over 100,000 clients at wholesale-level pricing. Their unique business situation also gives them more flexibility than most sellers to continually upgrade to improved fabrics and take quick advantage of other technological advances. Customers are free to peruse the whole stock or to search for their specific car cover with their online vehicle search tool. While there are many classic car covers to choose among, eight of the most popular ones are fitted to the following classic vehicles:

1. Chevrolet Malibu

Named after the city of Malibu, CA, the Chevy Malibu was originally manufactured from 1964 to 1983. The car began as a "trimmed down" version of the Chevelle and evolved into its own model.

2. Ford Thunderbird

From 1955 through 1971, Ford manufactured its first five generations of the Thunderbird. This is one of the original American luxury cars, and the first four generations were convertibles.

3. Ford Mustang

First generation Ford Mustangs were built between 1964 and 1973. This was the "spark" that created a whole new class of cars- the sporty, long-hooded coupes known popularly as "pony cars."

4. Pontiac GTO

The original Pontiac GTO was manufactured between 1964 and 1973. Many credit the GTO with beginning the "muscle car" trend among major U.S. auto companies.

5. Chevrolet Impala

Built from 1958 to 1976, the first five generations of Chevy Impalas were distinguished by their symmetrical, triple tail lights. By 1965, the Impala had become the number-one selling U.S. car and Chevrolet's most expensive car.

6. Ford Galaxie

The Galaxie was a full-sized U.S. car manufactured by Ford from 1959 to 1974. The name derives from the fervor of the space race that was then in full swing.

7. Chevrolet Corvette

The Corvette is now in its 7th generation, but its first two generations, which ran from 1953 to 1967, are by far the most classic. It is often called simply a "Vette" and is famous for compactness and maneuverability.

8. Dodge Challenger

During the years 1958 through 1974, Dodge built their first-generation Challengers. It was a "pony car" that shared many of its parts with the Plymouth Barracuda.
