Where's never? I got my '88 two years ago and have yet to suds it up. I don't believe it's been washed since it came off the lot, in fact, I'd say the dirt/ pollen/ grime are all that's holding on my paint at this point

Haha... my truck is black, what do you think?!

I try to keep it clean and usually can get away with that by washing every other week or so, but the birds have been using it for target practice lately.

I used to wax it fairly often too, but it was so hot this summer that I only did it once. Maybe this weekend I'll give it a good detailing.

I have mine washed once a week. We have one of those washes here that you get out and it pushes the truck through and they clean the windows and hand dry it when it comes out all for $7.95.

once every week or two. i try not to do it much more than that, being a black truck i'd go insane keeping it super shiny when they start salting the roads i'll probibly do it more often and use the auto wash down in town, scince it blasts all the crap off of the undercarrage too. but for now i like grabbing a towel and the garden hose and doing it in the yard, gives me time to "bond" with the truck

used to be every week but now it hasn't been washed in over a month but thank goodness i have about 1,000 layers of wax on it lmao i took a cloth to it the other day on the hood just a little spot and the dirt came off so easy. not even stuck to the paint. Kinda missing summer now. truck was always clean and shinny. winter is mean to vehicles.
