Re: What did you do to your WK today?

Hahaha funny story. So yesterday night I was totally wasted and had a flashback of anger at my ex girlfriend from college. In this drunken fit of rage, I thought it would be a good idea to wash the jeep at 3 am. Didn't turn out TOO bad for the state I was in lol. ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1423932141.898792.jpg
