With all the snow in the Boston area, I've been trying to wash weekly to get rid of the road grime and salt.. but I'm two weeks overdue now, and we seem to get little rain/snow events every other day or so - washing gets expensive
usually wash about once every two weeks.
Florida is quite clean.
AND if it rains, and the Gold Rush is outside, then we would never wash it.......
our rains are incredibly pure water. No "acid rain" here.
And with 5 coats of Zaino, the water tends to sheet off anyway.
Of course, if the car does get wet and then we have to drive it, she gets dirty and I have to wash it.......
And of course, being light gold she doesn't show dirt like black or dark blue.
I remember my first new car.
A black on black 1957 Ford Fairlane 500 convertible. 312 CI, 3 on the tree with electric OD rear end.
I drove it from the dealer to the hot rod shop and had it dechromed . Even had the door handles removed and solenoids mounted under the sides.
Lowered 3/4 inch in front and an inch and a half in the rear and a pair of crusier skirts mounted.
Then some gold pinstriping added..
Washed that car EVERY DAY!
Waxed it (Remember Simonize?) every Saturday.
I was 19 and in the USAF.
It was my pride and joy.
