vehicle coverings actually date back
to before the history of
automobiles. Early Sumerian records
indicate that chariots were tough
war vehicles but very sensitive to
weather conditions. Because chariots
were the luxury vehicles of their
time, they were often painted and
gilded with precious metals, so when
they were not in use they had to be
covered with a burlap-like material
or animal hides to prevent damage.
Egyptian chariots were made of wood
and composite materials (bone and
sinew glued with resins) so it was
vital to keep them dry during the
rainy seasons. Naturally, there were
no garages available to the
Egyptians, so chariots on campaign
(which, like tanks, were often
brought to the battle in pieces on
other conveyances, or carried to
prevent mileage damage) were kept in
wrappings and packaging, some of
which was found in King Tut's tomb
along with a disassembled chariot.
In fact, the first "car cover logo"
can be traced back to the Pharaoh
Akanaton, who used a distinctive
solar and falcon emblem on all of
his property, painted on with a
mercury-based black pigment. Today,
the tradition of animal emblems
continues with the Wolf Emblem.
recently in history, the forerunner
of the car cover was the tarpulin,
which had problems of its own. For
instance, the metal grommets caused
scratching, and the canvas materials
were not much of a help either.
Paint jobs were not done with space
age materials until well into the
1960's, so rough covers often
defeated their own purpose. Today's
covers, made with Kimberly Clark
material, are much more lightweight
than the animal hides, burlap (or
papyrus, if you prefer) material, or
even tarp and oilcloth. Even better,
a $29.95 universal cover would
suffice for the average chariot, and
pack up much tighter than the
cumbersome wrappings found on the
floors of dusty old tombs. Given the
composition of the new vehicle
covering material, it would probably
last longer as well.
