actually i probably shouldn't call it that, since it's the most reliable car i've ever owned, even with 150k miles on it, i'm never worried if it's gonna leave me stranded. It is a 1992, so 16 years old!

i have been thinking of messing with the explorer letters to make them say exploder though.

Wash at least every two weeks, often once a week.

Wax every wash (wax as u dry. It works so well that I no longer wax it twice a year, Once a year is often enough, and it still beads up when I wax it. I use the stuff in the orange bottle, I don't remember the name. The stuff that is supposed to last a year (but really doesn't).

I think I've waxed my Mystique once since it was new. With 203,000 miles on it and almost eight years under its belt, a glossy paint job isn't going to bring me a penny more at trade in time, so why waste my time? I've outgrown the desire to have the shiniest car in town decades ago!

Oy I've gotten lazy with washing.

I used to do it once (or twice) a week while in high school. Freshman year of college slowed me down to once a month. Somewhere between freshman and senior year of college the amount of repairs stacking up made me love my cars less, as well as being far busier and lazier. The Maxima has seen the toll of my horribly busy senior year and now 4-hour daily commute with work .. it gets rarely washed and the old wax is all stripped off (though in June I bought $40 worth of Meguiar's materials for "when the day comes").
