<p>He is also very...whats the right word...full of hyperbole? I love the guy, and if you read this adam no offense but if something is good its amazing. like the most amazing thing in the world. His review of the GT3 rollbar made it seem like gods work, but hearing from a local it wasn't the same story on his end. I'm not trying to get into which product is better than others. But until I try it I won't believe it. And its way too much money just to get rid of some rattles.</p>

See I totally disagree. I'd happily pay the money to get rid of some rattles. I'm going to wait til I have the car on the road for a while first though before buying anything else like that.

I don't know what roads in Portland are like, but in Jackson, MS, I worry sometimes that my car is actually disintegrating around me.

I'd be more concerned about killing yourself with those little cancer sticks

sometimes I fantasize about how cool it would be to have a car that dirty and just not care about anything.

then I wake up in a cold sweat. and go clean my cars for the 4th time in 1 day

Those roads are smooth as silk.

I'm gonna find a way to mount my gopro pointing at my suspension and do some driving around here one of these days.

<p>I used to have a '92 Saab 900--her name was Ansgar--that was that dirty&nbsp;car for me/us. My wife and I bought it for $900&nbsp;shortly before we got married. Clear coat was already peeling, etc.</p><p>On our wedding day, they Oreo'd it and whip creamed it and everything... I don't think we washed it for like 6 months. Had to use a heavy degreaser to get the melted oreo cream off. I think we vacuumed it once or twice in the 3 years we owned the car. Sucker moved us from Utah to California and back to Utah, lots of road trips, camping, etc. Even hauled some felled trees up in Idaho.</p><p>Engagement photo with Ansgar:</p><p><img src="http://cimg7.ibsrv.net/gimg/www.miataturbo.net-vbulletin/1024x681/80-_dsc7818_2baca1355ba95ffbb3867fc6cf81c50701bee4d9. jpg" title="" /><br /><br />And a couple pics&nbsp;from the for sale ad when I sold her a few years later:</p><p><img src="http://cimg2.ibsrv.net/gimg/www.miataturbo.net-vbulletin/1024x768/80-img_20130622_135604_e5a0e84ee00db1f8ce0263ebd4f33e 0810ea74a5.jpg" title="" /><br /><br /><img src="http://cimg4.ibsrv.net/gimg/www.miataturbo.net-vbulletin/1024x768/80-img_20130622_135553_e04d6af0194ad39ae891b4455f0c0f e843dbf075.jpg" title="" /><br /><br />I do miss her </p>

My clear coat was peeling when I bought the car in 2008. It looks really good now.

My car was bought salvage title cheap as dirt, so it needs to continue looking as dirt.

I keep my bike clean, I want to sell it and buy a beater supermoto that I never have to clean.

Stupid stadium cost us a really nice autox site!

I work a half mile from there, but I've actually never gone to Great America, not even during high school.

On that note, I just saw some guy in a parking lot with a new Dodge Charger that was all done up in mock General Lee style with the correct orange paint, door numbering, and a Confederate flag on the roof, and I thought: You poor bastard! You paid good money for something you thought was so cool, and now, within a matter of a few months (of current events), your precious baby has become a virtual target for every douche bag who now thinks it deserves to be keyed for its newly-incorrect political comment.
