Default I need imput, I need a car cover

Well I now live in the city and I have to park on the street and the trees just make my car look like crap. I want a car cover that won't scratch the paint and will protect it when the weather comes in as well. Any suggestions?

Best bet would be to check out local auto parts stores for a universal outdoor cover, they can usually be had for under $100. Advance Auto carries a large gold Autocraft cover for $85. As long as it'* made of a breathable fabric that doesn't trap moisture under it, you should be okay.

You can find some decent universal fit outdoor covers for fairly cheap, just make sure they fit a 17ft car, I am pretty sure your car is around 16.9ft
Here is one that does not sound too bad for the money.
