I thought the same thing, maybe some good polish and she will be good as new

Haha, I tried that this winter for the first time, and got busted by some old guy that must own the place or run it. Man did he get cranky when I asked why I couldn't wash it with a bucket. There wasn't even any other cars there.

Yeah, this one said no bucket washing period. I didn't notice the sign when I got out. I just politely asked why when the guy told me and he got all huffy and asked if I would take my own food to a restaurant.
