I know this is old, but I'm with Knox...especially, I park so I can see her pulling up and I check out the car the whole way. If we go out and it's raining, when we get where we are going, i get out and walk around in the rain to look at the water bead up, she's like, let's go, i'm getting WET!(and not in a good way
). My neighbors always make fun of me, just a regular washing takes hours, I always find something to wax, mist with some detailer, even if it's under the hood, around door edges. Hey, it helps keep everything clean and I don't always have to spend 10hrs doing a full detail...except I always have to buy the next "best thing ever" product to try, strip off all the old, and put on the new.
Wifey says, whatever, it's your thing. She does though say she likes parking next to the executives she works with at G###year, and having the best looking car, and her friends say they wish their husbands were like me...she tells them, if you only knew, he has issues.
