How often ???

How often do you guys and girls wash your camaro. I think I am about to wash the paint off. I wash mine at least 2 or 3 times a week. How about anyone else?

Probably 3 times a month... Being a garage queen and only out on good days she doesn't get very dirty

Depends on how many times I have to go to work. I get a lot of bug "stuff" on it when I do, but I've been doing it about twice a week.

Not enough. It's been so long that I'm afraid of washing it. So much dirt... not sure the best way to get it off safely. o.O

I try to wash mine every other week. Just got mine and washed it once already. That California Duster helps for when you don't have time to clean and it is very dusty. I think I clean the windows on the car every two or three days though.

Garage kept and yet I still need to polish 2+ per week!

It's great to know I am not the only one obsessed with my ride looking good!!!!! It's a Labor of Love

Once a week here is plenty for me, I have to keep up with three cars and I ain't getting any younger.

I don't think my car looked that clean when it rolled off the lot.

Hope your not serious about polishing 2x a week. That's not good for your clear coat. Polish has a grit to it and you will destroy your finish. Wax on the other hand is different ...
