Car blow driers ?

Has anyone tried any of these car blow driers?

http://www.autogeek.net/metro-blaster-sidekick.html (the smallest)

http://www.autogeek.net/metrochart.html (the list of regular ones)

http://www.autogeek.net/mema.html (the biggest)

Wich ones are overkill and too expensive? Which ones are good and will last? Wich one is worth the $$$$'s?? I don't want to spend more than I need.

This one looks nice.

I get access water off with a shammy and then use a microfiber towel to finish. I then take compressed air and blow out all the nooks and crannies of trapped water. Black is such a PITA.

I wouldn't mind using a drier, but its so dusty here in the desert it would be more harm than good.

I'm just concerned about aiming upwards from the bottom might be difficult with a leaf blower and aiming downwards might stirr up dust.
That's why I was looking for something more specific for cars. The leaf blower is a good cheap idea. Any other recommendations or favorites?

This is one that I've been looking at a lot. Is the blower powerful enought to do the job well? And does the hose reach the top of the car/all areas of the car easily if the vac/blower is on the ground ?

No not cumbersome at all, maybe 3-4 lbs and small I was amazed how small it is and how much air it blows out. It is about the size of a soccerball.
