My car is under surveillance!

Sure, I'm used to all the employees at the dealership trying to get a peek at my lemon interior...

And the people who slow down or stop when I'm out washing the car....

And even the tourists who want a photo of the kids with my car in the background...

But now this guy flew directly over my house yesterday (noisy thing too), and I can only assume it was to try and get a glimpse of my car and that lemon interior. They probably had telescopic lenses getting close-ups of it...

... I hope they couldn't read the name on the tires!

Sometimes, but screw 'em. There are plenty of people in the neighborhood with more expensive cars than mine.

I have the same problem too, but its not because they're lazy. Its because they think Im crazy for spending 2 hours washing a car (They're probably right!). Its pretty embarrassing actually.

I usually spend around 1 hour and 15 min washing my car, (believe me, i used to take 4 hours), and I do feel a little self-conscious when I'm doing it...but all my neighbors cars look like crap so I don't care what they think. If you want the job done right, you have to do it yourself.

You should see the looks I get when I'm out washing it in January. Once I had to break the ice out of the hose first....
