Yeah its called locked in garage wax......

Yep that was freaking lame. I didn't do anything special for the car last year and I drove it every day. I just jumped at the chance to wash it anytime it was warm enough. But interested to see what others do in the winter.

I do wax my car in the Fall even though it stays in the garage. I don't know the name of the wax offhand, but it is a carnauba wax and it wasn't cheap.

I'm still looking for a beater I don't want to drive mine this year. But driving anything else kinda sucks.

This was a good reminder. The way the weather is turning, I'm going to have to get after this. I wish I could do it on Saturday.

I am cleaning my really good Friday and then putting it in the garage until I have to leave Saturday for the wedding. Hopefully it will still be ok for the show Sunday. Can't look bad might scare Eric away from parking with us.

Friday's supposed to be shit. I'm hoping for late Saturday.

My heap will increase the odds of winning a trophy for every vehicle withing 50' of it. That's why I'm parking away from Brian, he has enough.

Well Saturday I have to spend the morning transferring myself into a girl so as much as I would rather work on the car I have little choice.

I already have two this year so I guess you need to park away from me also.

i use NXT tech wax 2.0 no matter what time of year it is. easy on, easy off, now white residue, and lasts the longest of over the shelf waxes.

if you want a better wax than that you will have to order the best of all off the internet. zano bros. nothing beats zano bros. but be prepared to spend a bit of money for it. that stuff is expensive.

and what show is Sunday?

I also use NXT. It's great. I have never used anything that comes off so easy without the white residue all over.

I'll be putting my ride away for the winter as soon as I see the first salt truck on the roads but not a minute before that. Not looking forward to a long winter driving my beater but at least it's turbo.
