Default WARNING!!! Not For The Faint Of Heart

Those on heart medication, please take before viewing.


After a 600 mile road trip this weekend, I noticed when I got home, lordy-bee, my car was filthy. I ran around the car and gave it a good going over to see if the rain and dirt had melted anything................oh my lord, to my surprise, nothing was wrong.

It will look like new shortly. That is all.............

Alignment seems to be OK, steering straight, no abnormal tire wear.

My way of throwing a dig into folks that will never drive their Vette in foul weather. They will forsake a good trip and a good time so as to not have to clean their car.

It's hunting and harvest season. Lots of dirt on the roads. Can't really see it except for a short while when vehicles first turn out onto the pavement but you can notice it quite a bit at gas stations if it's the least bit rainy.
