The Color BLACK.

I will never in a million years ever buy a BLACK car, to hard to keep clean, shows everything, and takes a whole lot of elbow grease just to look decent. My Black SS looks gray if the light hits it just right I have polished buffed waxed again and again. Always looks the same. Pissing me off cause it dont look like it did a year ago..... Just venting.....

I feel your pain, but when black is clean it's so sexy. I think a qoute I read on Adams Forums sums it up, "a black car is not a hobby, it's a profession"

definitely a hard color to keep clean, but definitely worth it.

I LOVE black. The only color for me in this car. Zaino takes real good care of my baby.

The Envoy's a garage queen for that reason. I only drive her when it's sunny out.

Me too!
I've been keeping mine in local storage but am buying my first home this coming Friday. It has a double car garage!

I simply told my realtor for search criteria, look for a double car garage with a house attached!

I can't wait to spend some intimate quality time detailing every surface, and going over every line of the car. Especially those quarters! Loves it!!

My saturdays are usually spoken for if it's nice outside. takes me like 3+hours to get 'er done right

pre-rinse, spray tire cleaner and goo gone for the bugs and let soak, soap and hand wash with microfibre mitt one panel at a time, rinsing often so no soap dries on, scrub brake dust off wheels, hand shammy dry whole car, wet shammy to clean door jambs, trunk and hood gaps, Mcguiars Show Stopper detail spray, Turtle wax tire shine.... and that's just the outside haha I've only had the car since March 26th and already waxed it twice and clay bar'd it once.

it's an obsession... I am not healthy

Sounds like fun to me. lol

I got a system down. I literaly take about 10 minutes per day, and an hour on the weekend and it stays clean. AND shiny.

My car NEVER looks gray. I've had a few clients ask me how I keep that black so clean all the time. Even my dealer mentioned it. Not hard at all once you get a system down.
