the Meguiar's Tire Dressing (the thick purple one that smells like synthetic grape juice) is great!

Buy some cheap foam applicators at your friendly neighborhood Dollar Store and your car will gain at least 10 hp from its improved looks!

need to put some on the convertible for errands in the torrent today... They also make an additive for washer fluid that is pink and that keeps adding the active shedding chemical . Pretty good stuff for the winter anywhere.

folded up in the trunk it takes no space and makes a great emergency water container--complete with on/off faucet. And acquiring the bag is fun too...

road racers and British car owners. ;)

The understated, generic-looking bottle made it look as if it was made in someone's basement. I thought nothing of it until I used it. Wow! I particularly liked it on my (Champagne Edition) '78 Scirocco, 'cuz it had that steeply raked windshield and Can-Am style mono wiper. Periodically, I'd make a single sweep, so the stuff didn't wear off too quickly.

Sometime in the early 90s, Andy Rooney from CBS "60 Minutes" said, after receiving a sample in the mail, it "didn't work." I'm sure he didn't try it.

RainX was, in part, a sponsor of an Indy Car driven by the late Scott Brayton in the early 90s. I got into a huge discussion with a "corporate race car sponsor PR type" about the virtures of using this extraordinary product. Though he had never used RainX he had likely heard Rooney's comment on TV. He made a complete fool of himself, shouting me down, telling me that the stuff was a "recent concoction" and "didn't work." The next day, I found his car in the lot and used RainX on the PASSENGER side of his windshield.

After the next rain, I left a note under his windshield wiper that said, "Gotcha!"

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
