    As of this morning, this is what my week old 2007 Honda Ridgeline looked like. I had been off-roading just the day before on some windy dirt roads. It was a blast!

    Ignore the boat, it is my brother's.

    How dirty has your car or truck gotten, and do you have pictures of it?

    My Camaro isn't too bad. It's actually somewhat dusty. It's been nice here, but windy, and the battery/alternator died so I haven't had a chance to move it or tend to it.

    My car was pretty dirty after the snow we'd had 'round here, but I recently washed it, and even cleaned the inside. Sort of.

    So, not that dirty, I guess. Then again, it's hard to take a Cobalt off-roading, you know?

    I went 4-wheeling in my old Explorer and covered the thing with mud from stem to stern waaaay back in high school.

    ...and, of course, don't have pictures to prove it. :(  Damn! I thought I had saved some of those on teh compooperz, but I can't find them now.

    I try and keep my truck clean. I got it washed and vacuumed last week, but of course we had another snow storm over the weekend so the outside got dirty again.

    I never wash my car, ever. Well, I'll wash the windows. Otherwise I see it as a huge waste of water and I don't really have any need for a squeaky clean car (I'm not a real estate agent or a pimp).

    I usually wash my car around once a week. It's a black car though so it shows all dirt which kinda annoys me. I wash the motorcycle maybe once a month depending on the amount of riding.

    Mines pretty clean actually! Took the car to the dealership to have the wheels swapped out and they went ahead and washed it for me.

    We definitely will be needing to wash the Mustang. Hasn't had a good clean in several weeks and now since the birdies are out, we got bird crap all over it.

    The dirt actually holds my car together. I will wash the windows when they are so bad I cannot see. Other than that I can't bring myself to wash an $800 car.

    Also I am lazy.

    I haven't washed mine in what seems like years. I just let the rain take care of it. Dust doesn't really show on silver cars.

    As for the interior, I don't let anyone eat/drink/smoke/cause other messes in there so it's always clean except for occasional dust.

    You haven't washed Lil' Grimmy?!? Oh, he's going to be upset about that!

    I wish I had some pictures of my Tundra when I got it REALLY dirty off-road. I had the rear end so dusty you could barely see the tail lights or read the license plate. I had to dust it off a bit because of that!

    Oh yeah dust does show on silver cars. :lol  Kev works in one of the limestone caves in KC and it's ALWAYS caked in a fine layer of dust.
