Not even all the wax in the world can protect you from a Northern Indiana Winter...
Definately wash it to get the salt off, not to get it clean...
Make sure you get inside the wheel wells...its rusts breeding ground

You have no choice. It just snows and snows and snows and more snow.! :(
pfft.....We ain't got no snow up here......just sand and salt and a few random patches of ice....

Just make sure the water from your hose doesn't freeze before it reaches the car!
