I like the bulbs (see Gunter above). Also his and BV's poly idea is good - it keeps moisture from coming up thru porous concrete).

But watch out for car bubbles - they are not poly (usually) but are made from vinyl. Avoid those unless you ventilate them with a fan. Vinyl outgasses a nasty acid - it eats up photo negs and slides and cannot be good for your paint. It' manufuacture also entials terrible pollution -- highly toxic.

You are better off with no starts than with a series of cold starts that don't warm up the engine.

I would only store the car if in an area where salt was used on the roads -- otherwise it will be happier if it gets exercise.

BTW, someone ought to chat up the staff at a car musuem (one with spendy cars) on their next visit and post what they say here.
