    Question That New Car scent

    I just bought a car it is a 1992 but I am excited and I was wondering if anyone knows how I could get that fresh new car scent. The air freshners I have bought are a big joke smell nothing like a new car.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe that fresh "new car" scent comes from the glue used to hold the pieces of the dash together. It's probably poisonous, lol, it just so happens that people enjoy it and associate it w/ a new car.

    I would recommend checking out the California Cool brand air freshners. They look like a tuna can with these brown fiberous squares inside. I had one in my old car that lasted forever and everyone always commented on it. I usually find them at Walmart but note they are not in the auto section, check out the aisle w/ the Glade plugin refills and that kind of stuff, they are generally hidden there somewhere. And yes, they make a new car scent.

    I love that scent so much it makes me want to weep...
    A lot of power is good, more is better, and too much is perfect. I mean, if less is more, think how much more more is...
