These guys come highly recommended.
Anyone ever used one of those tents for storing cars?
I need a quick fix to store a classic car that can't be in the florida sun and rain. I realize that a tent is not the best for protecting against the elements, but it is better than nothing. I just need to keep the sun and rain off this thing for 6 months to a year. I'm not sure if one of these can actually withstand Florida weather
That is a pretty interesting design. I've never heard of them.
Shed in a box is inexpensive and would last a couple of years or so. Would only withstand winds as good as you anchor it down.
It would certainly keep that FLA sun off the ride.

Rent a storage unit at an RV facility - not at a "mini" storage.
The one I am at has electricity and I am allowed to wrench on projects. I can't grind, sand, paint or weld though. I told them I preferred a unit that was the least likely to have people walking by asking if I had "any 4 bolt main Chevy blocks" - aka looky-loos - walking by. They gave me the most inaccessible unit. I think they had a hard time renting it to the RV crowd, but it was perfect for me.
Another guy at the facility rented 3 adjacent units and they let him take the walls out between them. He's got at least 6 classic Ford trucks in there.
I so wish I had stored my first car at one years ago.

Constantly studying spots welds, mag well dimple shapes, center support rivet heads and selector markings for the last 12 years...
BTW - Keep your BFH away from my AK!

I've used a similar (tent) enclosure as in OP photo, although I screwed each joint together with a self-tapping metal screw so pipe sections wouldnt pull apart.
I also threw straps over the front, middle and rear and secured those 6 points very well to the ground, nearby garage and a telephone pole.
Biggest problem I see if you're installing on gravel, yard or dirt.. the sun will warm up the tent and draw moisture out of the ground making the tent with condensation on the inside and raising the moisture level in/on the vehicle stored inside. Maybe will need to run a de-humidifier.
Mine lasted 18 months until I completed remodel on my house and extended the roof 26 feet out for carport parking. The georgia sun began to compromise the fiberglass tarp material towards the end, and I relocated the structure and removed the sides, turning into a carport at my camp down the road.
