High school car wash

I am very protective about washing my Camaro. There was a bunch of high school cheerleaders doing a car wash for 5.00, would you let these girls wash your car?

Sorry no photos.

I wouldn't let them touch my Camaro. But I would come back with my civic and let them have a go at that

Although I have let them wash my service truck before. I also pay them double the asking price since it's huge and usually very dirty.

I almost did that once. I was on line, and then I saw the kids having a great time throwing the rags at eachother. The rags would hit the ground, and the kids would pick them back up and keep washing the cars. I didnt want new coustom pin striping on my car, and just drove off. With my wifes family van, I could care less about the paint.

Just go over the whole car with 200 grit sand paper, you will get the same results for free.

Just give them a donation.

I've been in charge of this type car washes before. I ended up washing the high end cars myself. No way would I let anyboby else wash my car, it's not theirs so they don't care what kind of job they do. Just donate as everyone else has said.

Thats what I did too, I drove up and they thought they were going to get to wash my Camaro, I rolled the window down, gave em 5 bucks and told them that I didn't need a wash but wanted to help them out. They all loved the fact that I came over so they could get a better look at it.
