alfa solves third world water shortage

so heres the plan.

fly my alfa out to some drought ridden country, give me one bucket of water and some car wax products. I gaurantee, 5mins after i finish, or as soon as i get a coat of polish (not buffed off) on the car the heavens will open and the country will enjoy a plentiful supply of water.

i dont think ive waxed or polishe the car once int he last year without the heavens opening and peeing on the nice shiny car just to leave nice water marks all over it! booooooooooooooooooooo!

has anyone polshed there car and NOT had it rain?????? time for a poll!

love, love is a verb, love is a doing word.

You should live round here - the only time it's not raining is when it's about to rain

Both get me. Once cleaned polished and waxed it took about 10 hours to chuck down,at which point, due to it being april, living in an extra rural location and the bare fields at that time being sown - loadsa dust being chucked up, after the rain it looked like a dalmatian with all the rain shaped dust spots.

not a happy bunny. summer = bugs and dust and rain

winter = road salt and cold and rain.

The constantly dusty rain is really getting on my ****. I'm sure it never used to be this bad - or maybe I just never had a black car before damn

lol! i can add to this.

sick to death of being stuck in traffic for ages?

The moment you give up, pop in to neutral and pull up the handbrake, the car in front will then move immediately.

My Fiat is black and it gets really dusty regardless of how much i've driven it so i'd say it's probably the colour, about the only problem with the colour really...

Re: alfa solves third world water shortage

I know exactly what you mean about washing and rain...

It only rained twice this week anyway. Once for 3 days and the second time for 4 days.
