Here Comes The Sun: How Empire Covers Saved My Car
Jack Labens, Empire Covers Product Research
When I turned 50 last year, I decided to pursue my dream of owning a sports car. I fell in love with sports cars when I was just a boy.
My father had a pristine red Mustang, and when I was old enough he finally let me drive it and ever since then I have vowed to someday have one of my own.
After putting the kids through college and paying off my mortgage, I was financially ready to purchase the car of my dreams. Since I loved my
Dad’s Mustang so much, I decided to get one of my very own. I went out and purchased a bright red Mustang GT Premium.
After all the years of dreaming of having this car, the moment was finally here. There was just one thing that didn’t quite fit in with what I had
imagined: I didn’t have a garage to park it in! My wife’s car and my SUV filled our two-car garage, so I reluctantly parked the new baby on the street,
exposing it to harsh weather. I live in Florida, so the hot sun beats down most of the year.
I regularly cleaned and waxed the car in hopes that it would compensate for its lack of shelter. After a few years however, I noticed that the
bright red paint job was not as radiant as the day I brought it home. Not to mention, the black leather seats and interior I opted for was
scorching hot every day. Rather than continue to watch the poor thing continue to deteriorate, I decided that I needed to do something in
order to preserve what I had left of the paint’s finish.
Since I knew about it's quality, I gave our DuPont Tyvek ® Sunproof Car Cover a shot. This cover is
great against the sun and it’s very light weight and easy to put on. It also keeps the interior of my car up to 30° cooler! After using it for about
6 months now, I can tell that my car’s paint is in much better shape than before.
I love my car and do whatever I can to take care of it. I clean it regularly inside and out, and make sure I take it in for routine oil changes.
All this would be in vain if I didn’t have my car cover keeping it safe from the harsh weather it’s exposed to. I hope to have this car for many
years to come and I have the Premier—DuPont Tyvek® Car Cover to thank for protecting my dream car.
