Z-HQ – WorkBench 10/31/17

My favorite thing to do on Halloween as a kid was to dress up as a ghost. My mom would crudely cut a few holes in a bedsheet for my eyes and mouth, throw it over my head, loosely wrap a belt around my neck to keep the sheet on, and off I’d go trick or treating with my friends through the neighborhood. With the exception of the belt wrapped around my neck (this was the seventies after all. We didn’t know any better back then), it was a great costume and I had a hell of a lot of fun wearing it.

And so in honor of Halloween, and my favorite childhood costume we’re going to talk about Zerust Car Covers. But most importantly, it’s getting to that time of year when precious things go in storage in order to protect them from the elements.

If you’ve got a set of wheels that only go out on special occasions or, at the very least, when the weather’s fair, now’s a good time to invest in one of these corrosion proof, water resistant, mold proof, and of course, rust-inhibiting doohickeys. Fun Fact: I just put one of these babies over my ‘66 Fairlane for the season and man it feels good knowing that classic short will be kept warm and dry, snug, and rust free all winter long.

Whether it’s a valuable antique or a collectible automobile you’re storing, or just a sweet set of wheels that you’re extra precious about, keep it safe this season from the damages of rust, corrosion, dust and moisture with a Zerust Car Cover. But make no mistake. This ain’t no flimsy bedsheet.

Zerust Car covers are woven with Zerust’s patented VCI (Vapor Corrosion Inhibitors) corrosion-inhibiting formulas which add an extra layer of rust protection on the surface of your car.

So, go ahead, fight the elements and even father time himself. And, in honor of Halloween, have a bit of fun by giving your car the chance to ghost through the winter months with this heavy duty, rust preventing overlay. It’s like your car becomes a phantom, free from the laws of decay and deterioration that govern this dimension. Let’s just hope the thing just doesn’t light up at night, blaring the golden oldies station like Stephen King’s Christine.

Whoa! Now we’re getting into the spirit of the season, Z-Lings. Happy Halloween!

In hopes of adding a little culture to the old toolbox, we offer up a bit of verse, a touch of class in the form of a poetry. Zerust poetry that is. Sure, we’re serious about a rust free future for all. But that doesn’t mean we don’t have our sensitive side. And so, to keep the muses in motion, we bring you the Z-HQ Workbench Poetry Corner.

[Note: In this installment, we honor the open road with some rough and tumble biker poetry. Dedicated to all you gearheads out there who understand the importance of keeping your motor clean, and your gears rust and corrosion free. Why poetry, you ask? Well, we at Zerust feel that the products we provide are designed to keep your life moving, like poetry in motion. What better way to illustrate this than through the written word?

Friend, let me ride
Swift and fast and free
Out along the open road
From sea to shining sea.

From the Great Lakes
To the Shenandoah
To the Gulf of Mexico

To the open plains
And the iron range
The Badlands
And the Alamo.

Through rain and hail and sleet and snow
Sun and wind and the great plateau
Through desert storms of sand and dust
I’ll make it clear, I’ll make a fuss
I insist on the best, Zerust!

Zerust for my two wheeled pony
Cos it gets me there in style
Zerust is my one and only
To go that extra mile.

The roar of the pipes
The engine screams
Hear me comin’ a mile away
Man alive, I’m living the dream.

Zerust is the top shelf rust inhibitor
To keep the rust away
My main corrosion prohibitor
So good, it’s almost cliche.

Every time my two wheeled pony
Crackles and combusts
I hear trumpets sounding and choirs singing
The sweet tune of Zerust.

It’s the open road I need
The open road I crave
Gotta have my freedom
Before they carry me to my grave.

Nothing can hold me down
I’ll ride until the end
With Zerust in my wheelhouse
I know I can depend.

For their products keep my motor clean
And running super tight
If you ask me what I mean my friend
I’ll tell you, “Zerust, day and night!”

So if you’ve got the wanderlust
I’ll tell you what to do
Get yourself some Zerust
For rust protection through and through.

And that, Dear Z-lings, wraps up this edition of the Zerust Poetry Corner. Until next time, remember to keep your motor clean this winter with a new Zerust Motorcycle Cover.
