“Your car looks brand new!”

Clare exclaimed on the train last night after I told her that my VW Golf “Red Rocket” had 115,000 miles on it and was 10 years old.

That was not the first time I have heard that from someone.

And every time I do...I laugh my head off!

I am not a "wash the car on a regular basis" type of gal.

I wash mine probably twice a year - sometimes only once.

And because I have strictly adhered to that standard, I believe the almost-always-present thin coating of dirt has protected the paint and the body of my car - keeping it nearly pristine!!

still has a rust free sheen

when it is clean
