Washed and waxed

Washed and waxed my Nova last weekend. We recently moved so it's been taking a back seat to other things for a while. Got all dusty and dirty sitting in the garage over the last month or so. Couldn't take it, so I got it out and washed and waxed it up really good. Polished the wheels and did the tires up. Looks much better now!

Thanks! No didn't detail the interior yet. That's next. I need to clean up the engine bay a little as well.

They're going to repave our road in front of our house, but right now they just put gravel over top of the old pavement, so I haven't had it out in a while. Not really wanting to drive it on that crap and get rock dust all over it.

I got the body restored back in 2005, so the paint is approaching 15 years old, but it's had an easy life so it still shines up good after waxing it.

Thanks! We live on a paved road thankfully, but currently it is in the process of being repaved, so there is just gravel down right now. So I haven't had it out in a while. They're supposed to finish up within the next week or two. Then we'll have fresh pavement and the car will stay clean and no stone chips!

I'm located south of Detroit in Monroe County. Are you up by the Zilwaukee bridge in that area? When we go up north we pass by that area.

Great looking Nova!
When they are done repaving your road, you can officially sign it with your rear tires!

Haha yeah for sure, will have to lay some fresh black patches on the new pavement when it's done!

Will do! Always fun going over that big bridge. That's how I always knew we were getting close to the cabin as a kid when going up north.
