Default my baby, all shined up and ready for the harsh salty winter

title pretty much says it all. i waxed and nufinished it, just in time for it to pour this morning lol. its already covered in dead pine needles. on the plus side, thats it lol. ive been borrowing my moms car cause she has the flu. as of tomorrow or the next day, im going to have to drive her in the nasty mud. also got truck mats and 2 over the hump mats at a total price of $60 for everything.

here are some pics. i also made a 10 min long video for the video guys. i figured it would also be a good video for the depressing day i decide it needs to be sold. hopefully thats a long ways off. video will be in the next post. youtube is taking its sweet time processing.

I would polish mine... but i'm afraid that it wouldn't mix with the flat black
So a wash and a cover is good enough for me

Looks good man

Dude, I gotta give you props. One, because that car looks great, and two, because not a lot of teenagers would dare drive a Park Ave., most don't even know what that is. you picked a good car, man.
