Default The Polisher VS My winter sedan..pics..

So i got the the nick name "the polisher" while at WCBF this year..so lets go with it.
Basically here is whats been going down..the Alero..which is technically my dads car, even though in over two years i think he has drove it ten times..never uses it..my mom who technically is a joint owner on the car..only uses the Alero when her truck isnt going..which..this week its getting a few things fixed at the dealership...so the Alero is hers until next weeks end..
In the mean time, it sits out on the street..might go through a tank of fuel in a month and a half if we are lucky..
My mom was talking today..how handy the Alero is..YET i have been runnign around, saving up money to buy my own winter car, cause they were talking about finally selling the Alero...HOWEVER today she said, well, i think we might as well keep it, i said, well if u guys keep it, ill use it all winter again, its got EXCELLENT winter tires on it, that i bought..
Alero has not been washed in about..3 months atleast...i took my red car to the wash, then the Alero to the wash..one after another one time..that was the last time..

Before and after pics.

It does the Job, heat is luke warm..AC is luke warm. Well, AC is actually cold.
Stock Monsoon stereo does the job too, even though the CD player has down syndrome sometimes..
