Default I miss the dry weather and my car being clean

So, I'm brining some pics I took of my 02 SE before the weather got a hold of it.



I wish it still looked like that, but now it looks like it got tagged with white spray paint from all the salt.

I really like that colour! Very sharp car

Torn on the weather though. I've been able to keep mine really clean lately, but the tradeoff is the temp has been about -800 degrees :(

They kinda look like they were dipped in chalk and so does the rest of the car, except the windshield.

The roads here have been fairly salt-free for the past couple weeks, so I've been keeping my car washed. Still looks nice n' clean.

I agree, NICE color!

dry weather isn't that great. the truck gets dirty just as fast in the 100% dry...dust, dirt, etc.

not to mention that white cars are like white carpet. you've basically gotta keep a carpet cleaner on speed dial...well..I keep meguiar'* on call 24/7.

not a bad ride! pretty darn clean.
