I have decided against the shrink wrap. The car capsule is great, but a little to obtrusive for my driveway. I had a long discussion yesterday with a Jaguar club friend. He loves the capsule. I think I will upgrade the California Car cover to the top of the line weatherproof model. I still drive it in the winter anyway, as long as no snow or salt on the road. Thanks to all for the comments!

I decided to go with a California Car cover, a Superweave which is supposed to be pretty rain resistant. I will report back when I see the results. Ordered on Monday, received on Friday despite a custom order. California to New York. Good on them.

You could probably find a shed to store a bicycle for $150/month on Long Island.

Guys, I'm a Newbie here and I'm totally new to the concept of winter storage . . .

I always thought car covers were for indoor storage. Is it perfectly ok to use a car cover for outdoor storage in the elements?

That idea came to me too. Is that feasible and workable? What about the cost?

I paid $325 for a California Superweave cover. I already have a mostly indoor Cal cover. Ordered and delivered in 5 days. Fits well.
