    Just currious. How much do you clean your rides?

    I wash and dry my Vette (DD). Twice a week, try to go over reallllly good every other week. Now my 63 Falcon, when ever it goes out... So very rarely, it mostly sits in the garage with a Cover.

    Mine gets washed about once a month, but I only put about 5K miles on it a year (year being from April to November). I normally do not wash it all winter.

    If I'm lucky, I may put 300 miles on mine in a year. She's fully detailed and put up for the winter now.

    Yeah, I was right with you for the longest time. Now I am driving her more often. Bought in 02 new and turned 16K on it this year.

    I still need to winterize mine. Hopefully this week as I'm off all week.

    I prefer it that way. I bought mine used in '01 with 24k on the ticker and she's at 47k now. It became a garage queen in '03.

    I would wash my car every day if I lived in New Jersey.

    Oh and I wash every inch of her too including her under carrage.. Edit also behind things like tail lights the space behind my headlights and so forth. Engine bay too, also the space between the front fenders and the hing area.. I replace floor mats once a year, rotors ever two, tires every two years also. Treat the spare and so on..Interior rarely needs cleaned. No eating or drinking is permitted in any of my vehicles. I do the same with my 18 year old car too..

    Yep, I'm one of those weird undercarriage people too. It's as clean as the rest of the car.

    About once a week i will clean something on the car. I don't do a full cleaning, sitting in the garage, it doesn't get that dirty.

    If I know I will be driving it, it doesn't leave until it's acceptably clean.

    The interior is vacuumed only a couple times a year, it stays relatively clean. I'd never change the floor mats out, i could drive the car with white socks on and they wouldn't get dirty on my floor.

    I still eat in the car or drink, i can handle food at my age.
