    To wax or not to wax...

    that tis the question.

    Supposed to be great weather through the weekend!

    I am going to wash my baby this weekend and I have been debating whether or not to bother waxing. I think it's supposed to start raining again on Monday. Anyone else having the same dilemma?

    One things for sure, I expect a ton of new "Show Your Ride" pictures after this weekend.

    ^^ From one who does not drive in the rain. He is correct.

    I've never even washed my car, never mind waxing it. I doubt it'll ever see wax. More weight to slow it down.

    Why, because I don't wash, wax, or both?

    Yes. Seriously. When you say you never wash it do you mean you take it to a car wash or does it really just never get washed?

    I'd be willing to be the average person probably never waxes their car.

    Meh to each their own. Everyone enjoys there cars in different ways. Though I think truly neverwashing or waxing the car is rather excessive. I enjoy detailing so I keep my car clean.
