The American public snapped up a piece of European technology from Air Chamber USA during the Barrett-Jackson Auction Company's two renowned collector car auctions this year. Experts unveiled a portable, controlled-environment storage system for collector, exotic, high performance and luxury automobiles. The U.S. Market is hungry for technology that preserves vehicles with a "no touch" system.

The American public snapped up a piece of European technology from Air Chamber USA that can save hundreds of thousands of collector cars from damage. Experts from the British manufacturer's new North America arm unveiled the portable, controlled-environment storage system for collector, exotic, high performance and luxury automobiles during the Barrett-Jackson Auction Company's two renowned collector car auctions this year. Air Chamber is the world's only drive-in storage unit that creates the ideal conditions to preserve valuable collections from rust, mildew, dust, molds and external damage.

"With requests for our Air Chamber product growing from this side of the 'pond' over the past year, we decided to formally introduce it in the United States and Canada," said Graham Horder, Managing Director and Founder of Airflow, the parent company of Air Chamber USA. "The response from savvy American car collectors was smashing. They said they wanted the system because it's simple to use, effective and reasonably priced. We sold all of the systems that were brought into the USA for the Barrett-Jackson events and took orders for many, many more. Consumers have spoken and they want the Air Chamber."    

Air Chamber is the ultimate portable, controlled-environment storage system that helps retain the value of collector, exotic, high performance and luxury automobiles by circulating clean air across the vehicle's surface. It is a cross between a tent, a transparent car cover and a portable garage.

"Air Chamber is a significant departure from traditional auto covers that lay on top of vehicles, leaving scratches and marring paint finishes," explained Horder. "In fact, it's the only portable vehicle storage system with a lightweight, semi-rigid frame for easy mobility, instant access and protection against accidental contact. Nothing else on the market compares to this system."

Available in a variety of sizes, the Air Chamber's unique design minimizes potential for damage to vehicles caused by hidden moisture and condensation that causes rust, mildew and mold. The Air Chamber also features exclusive electrostatic filters that prevent airborne particles, such as dust and sand, from collecting on a vehicle. In addition, it has a UV covering that filters out harmful light that can fade or crack a vehicle's paint or interior finishes.

Mr. Horder, an Aeronautical Engineer and avid auto enthusiast, designed the Air Chamber system. Launched in 1994, many car clubs featuring famous marques have embraced the product and a private label version is sold through Bentley dealerships throughout Europe. He first gauged interest in the product by showing it to industry insiders and potential dealers at the SEMA show in Las Vegas during 2006. Their response encouraged him to introduce the product to American consumers in early 2007.

"We created several models specifically to accommodate American vehicles," added Mr. Horder. "From 1965 Shelby Cobras to 1959 Cadillacs, we have an Air Chamber that will safeguard these fantastic cars."
