    Just kidding.


    Actually, I keep my car pretty neat. Not perfect, but good enough that I can let someone in without apologizing.

    There's a guy at our local supermarket that has a car like those. I can't get over it each time I see it.

    My car is standard messy but I try to clean it regularly. I have a bag for trash and I try to get the kids to bring their toys in each time we leave the car.

    I'd burn those cars.

    Mine does not rise anywhere near the window level.

    However, at one point, when faced with a need to put together a craft project for my Sunday School kids that required the use of empty water or juice bottles with lids, I simply went out to the car and found enough of them for the project. And we have 20+ kids.

    My backseat area is the messiest. I only wash my car when I can afford it. I have joked about my car having a protective dirt coating. When its clean, its unprotected. Of course, I can't say that my car is as messy compared to that one in the picture.

    I have a Chevy Silverado that knows how to run through the family's Cattle Pasture---------since my son is learnin' how to drive---I don't think there's a "Cow Patty" in the pasture that does not have some sort of tire mark imprinted!!!:laugh::laugh::laugh:

    I will eat French Fries, Potato chips, M & M's and junk like that from off the seat-----but as much of a man as Blackbird is-------he won't eat the fries, chips, and M & M's from off the floorboard!!!!

    Speaking of which... The other day I left for work at 4:30am and it was 29 degrees outside. I have a jacket for 29 degree weather. At noon it was almost 50. That's shirtsleeves warm so the jacket goes in the back seat. It started to rain in the afternoon so I had to drag the rain jacket out of the trunk. The rain quit so I hung the rain jacket on the back of the passenger seat to dry. The next morning it was in the mid-30s. My jacket was still sitting in the back of my car with the now dry rain coat. I throw on a windbreaker and head to work. The windbreaker is too light for the temperature so I trade it for the original coat from the previous morning. I have a church meeting following work so I bring a change of clothes including a nicer jacket than any of the three already in the car....

    Now I can't find any coats in the house. The hall-tree is empty.

    If you are going to complain about how messy your house is, I suggest you take it to the PRIVATE MENS forum :tonofbricks:

    Uh, No. I usually clean out my trash can (the floor of passenger side) before it gets that high.

    WE have two vehicles - a 2000 Ford Winstar - that my wife uses and we use it Sundays - when we tranport people to church.

    The second car is a 1999 Buick Regal - lovely car - nicest car I've ever owned. I use it as my work car - and it is dusty - and I keep all my work stuff in it.

    This coming Friday will be my last day of work for this construction season (I am a retired NYSDOT engineer - and I currently work as a consultant construction inspector) - so I expect that I will have to clean the vehicle!

    No - it isn't as trashed as the photo link!!!

    Ours got trashed on a cross-country trip, but we finally scrubbed it all out and it's nice and perfect and has stayed that way since to my knowledge. I haven't looked in the back seat for at least a week.

    As expensive as cars are, we keep ours pretty clean in and out, with the required maintenance. In fact, we have two cars with 100k+ miles on them but they look almost new.

    We just went to the 2010 auto show and saw the prices on the new cars. It made us come home and clean & love our cars all over again.
