    my dad told me mine needs to be waxed or whateer the equivalent of waxing is but i have this special stuff almost like wax. he said they tell u to do it once every 3 months. i've had my car a year. i haven't done it yet. my dad just told me liek 2 weeks ago and he still has the stuff in his garage. we were going to wash my car tuesday but then pb went on a business trip. he came home late wed and thursday we had plans and friday we had plans and saturday we had plans and today i didn't even get dressed.

    You need to get on the ball here and get that car waxed. I'd clean everything at once. Take it down to the car wash and hit it with some high pressure rinse and clean out the interior, then handwash at home with soap, dry, polish (meguiars is some good stuff) and then wax, then clean the windows, and finally clean the rims and put some tire shine on those tires (believe me, it keeps those tires completely dirt free for months). And maybe some armor-all on some of the interior, but definitely not the steering wheel.

    Fun stuff. I'd clean it just for kicks if I was jobless, but I have enough to keep me busy every day. I hardly find time to keep my own car clean anymore.
