How to Protect Your Car on Halloween

Consumer Reports Online

Want to hear something spooky? Halloween tricks typically start before the holiday, and your car is not immune from that mischief.

Every October, goblins, ghouls, and even zombies prowl the night and "trick" cars. But these cars aren't tricked out, they're hit with broken eggs, Silly String, or smashed pumpkins. If left on the paint for a period of time, this nasty mess can cause permanent stains that are not only unsightly but can lower your vehicle's resale value.
