Wash and wax

Car care for me has been a little limited for the last year...being caught up with school and such. With the coming of summer and normal working hours, I've found at least some time to apply a little albow grease for appearance sake. Last week I vacuumed it out. Then on this las Saturday, Anna and I grabbed a couple of good rags and the can of wax.

Behold, what once was just a four cylinder hairdryer on wheels now glistens under the evening light.

More pictures to come when I have the time.

I know I still haven't dealt with all the exciting shakes and rumbles that have tricked some passengers into thinking they had boarded a one-way space shuttle flight (honest). But I am closer. I'm having her looked at soon.

Gorgeous! You shined the carriage before the return of Mademoiselle Beka. You do let her drive it occasionally, do you not?

It looks very nice Mark. I have already vowed to myself that when (if ever) I save enough money to buy a car. IT WILL BE CLEAN! Unlike someone elses little black Honda.

well, Mike...I don't know because mine is parked in a pallet yard all day...and last fall I was running around in the mud between constructions sites at my last job--all in all, it stayed tolerably clean... I don't think my sisters ever complained about my car being dirty except once maybe.

No, don't mind me. I really do believe you :D

Sorry Michael I could not help it. You just get so up in arms when I say anything about you car. But Michael since you washed last saturday it looks wonderful. Happy? I hope so.

So how does washing it change the fact that its still a 4 cylinder hair dryer on wheels? Mere external cleansing does not fix its internal problems does it?

A worthy question Chris. But remember, the hair-dryer is all in the head (as a result of the negative outside image). Now it is much closer to what was intended when it was built--a Toyota Camry (i.e. a disguised a 4 cylinder hair dryer on wheels).
