It amazes me how well this color hides dirt. This picture was taken after driving friends around Connecticut for three days over the 4th of July holiday...about 400 miles, Interstates and back country roads (including a couple of unpaved sections), even a couple of rain storms...and it still looks great.

I'll wash it tomorrow anyhow. ;)

That reminds me . . .
5 Week of ownership and 3,200 miles . . .

It needs a BATH!
-Doesn't look it, though. It looks clean, at least until I clean off a spot by either moving magnets or wiping a space off to add one.

I have found that as long as the car is waxed well and regularly, most colors will shine through when the car is dirty. Black is another story altogether.

I know, I know . . .
Gotta get my hands on the camera. My wife tends to keep it on her person. It was bought for her to use for work documentation related to grants (she is a music teacher). It has become a habit . . .

I am working a lot wight now and installing the parts I got from Carson when I get time. Picts will come soon, I promise.

After washing mine today I was again thinking for the bazillionth time that I should have gotten this color. I have the blackberry crush and it has been the most popular color in this area. Oh, and shows every spec of dirt and dried bugs. Yuck!

Yeah, I got the Classic Silver Metallic for this very reason. My previous car was black and showed the dust 5 minutes after I washed it.
