My 95 SC has been setting in my garage for six years and had a thick layer of dust on it. I've been planning to wash it for a while so today I finally slapped a plate on it, drove a couple blocks to a car wash, spayed the dust off, drove it back home and hand washed it. What a difference a basic wash can make on the appearance of a vehicle.

Looks fantastic now. Amazing what a good wash/detail can do. When mine sits in garage, i use microfiber cloth once a week to keep it from getting bad.

You should get a car cover.

Looks great Jimmy ! I agree on getting a car cover. I recently bought a 35th Anny cover to put on my 91 SC while it's sitting in the garage.

Real question tho... why was it sitting for six years?!

Thanks for the props guy's. I actually have car covers for both of my SC's purchased at Carlisle several years ago. The reason my 95 wasn’t covered is back in 2010 at Milan Dragway one night I missed second gear on the first pass and over revved big time. Driving back to the pits I noticed smoke in the cabin. When I parked and popped the hood smoke was coming from the engine bay. Looked like big time blow-by so I packed up and made the 25 mile drive home with my fingers crossed. Definitely felt and still feels down a cylinder. Anyway I didn't want to put the cover on a gritty car and I never got around to doing anything with it...until a week or so ago. The cover will definitely go on now. I need motivation to get this car back up and running right.

I know the feeling, my car is in the exact same situation right now. It too is sitting with a bunch of crud on it from the last time I drove it... just kinda sucks the motivation out of getting it clean again.

Looking good. I like the "Bill Hull era" quality digital pictures too.
