Default Importance of Garaging & Ceramic Coating Inquiry

My guess is that folks here will say the first commandment of classic vehicle care is using a garage to store your car.

I wanted to start up a conversation to see where people stand on this topic and if my prediction is correct. As someone inexperienced I want to know how important it is to have your car in a garage year round. Importance level 10 out of 10? And what about an extreme duty car cover? Not going to cut it? Does this depend on the time of year/weather in your area?

And as a side note: anyone ever done ceramic coating? Thoughts?

Just thought this would be an interesting topic of discussion.

In the Northeast a garage is a must for storing classic cars. No car cover will be able to provide enough protection from the elements. Most cars rust from the bottom up, not the top down. There's no sure way to prevent moisture from getting in underneath.
