If you can afford it you can rent a storage unit and store your car there. As for parking outside. I would say a cover is a must if you want to protect the paint.
So today I found out that the indoor place I was planning on storing my car has no room, and being a broke college student it will be parked outside my house. I live in Vermont and some winters can get really bad. Right now I have it parked on wooden blocks. Should I use or not use a car cover, if so what type. I am aware of all the proper steps to store the car just looking for advise on how to prevent more rust and protect the paint. It has been driven almost every winter before I owned it so its kindof rusty on the bottom. Only one small visible rust spot though. Any suggestions would be great, thank you guys for all the help.
