i don't believe i've ever heard someone say to me: "wow, look at that bum driving that dirty truck, what a loser"

thankfully, i don't care what others think of me, it's very liberating.

"oh, you drive a dirty, dented Silverado (it is a quad cab 4x4), well i'm sure someone loves you...."

"yes, i drive a dirty, dented Silverado, that is paid for, well maintained, and I don't want nor need your 'approval' ".

I'm like Data, I had a loaner for 2 months while the dealer worked on the Caddi. I washed and waxed it, detailed the interior and turned it back over cleaner than I got it. I don't like a dirty car even if it is a beater.
Drove major POS's when I was young and swore I would never do it again if I could afford otherwise. My Wife's TrailBlazer SS is 12 years old and the paint looks like you are falling into a river. Even our Transit Connect for the dogs is kept spotless. Working at an Aluminum Smelter makes it a pain to keep the Jeep clean but it is regularly detailed and clean. People at work can't believe how clean I keep my cars but that is just how it is done. I might flog the hell out of it, abuse it to no extent but it is done clean.

We had a mobile detailer guy who would come to our office every Friday, but he stopped coming due to COVID. No car washes since.

So from down 500, I'm currently up 200. Tomorrow is race day.
