Any car parts store. Don't get the cheep one you need one what will let moisture out. But if you really want to protect your car rent a garage if you don't own one.

I just want something to put on my car during a snowstorm so I dont need to scrape ice off of it every morning before work..

Try lifing a tarp with 3' of snow on it. You are going to have to brush it off anyway. I have seen some small things you put on your windshield and just pull that off and you have no snow on that but I don't think it works very well.

I need something like that as well! I was thinking of getting some plastic tarp and rolling the edges into the drivers and passengers side windows. Dont know how efficient that would be.

I just dont want ice on the glass. I already waxed my car good for the fall rains, and will probably do some hardcore deep waxing in November for the snow.

Brushing snow off a tarp is still a lot easier then brushing snow off a car and then scraping a few centimeters of ice of every window...

i use a long piece of nylon strap and just wound it around the shocks, door handles, and the tarp. Its a good fit.
