    against my better judgement, arguing that any time i spend cleaning the shark is time i lose driving it, i washed the poor thing today. and good lord but it needed it bad!

    given that any one of my cars is actually CLEAN maybe two or three (at the outside) times a year, i thought i'd take some snaps.

    hope they're entertaining!

    Great pics Doody. It's shame that black shows those damn rock chips so bad. After my black E55, I swore off black cars, but then again...

    Your land shark is beautiful.

    Resilient grass on first set - no tire marks!

    That's what I say!

    Great pics Doody. Can't get enough of 550's, no matter what color.

    And great pics as well Sfumato.

    Good work, car looks like it loves being clean!
    Nice color combo btw, tan makes the shark all warm and fuzzy looking.

    Lee, blk /blk is the best z8 in my opinion. You have a great combo of cars.

    Doody: you are an ass. I was hoping you would continue the dirty 550 mantra! I am alone...

    But, whoo-boy, that looks sexy! Sexy like a Darth on a cold lonely night! :D

    Dale: am I giong blind? What stone-chips? My man...you are missing the shark-love already!

    Lee: the cars are looking awesome! I love the wheels + spacers on your car. Fills much better. And you know how I feel about the Z8...aaaah.

    Kudos, Doody! now go back and make it dirty. BTW, I especially love the graveyard shots...very nice.

    Texas!
    There you go again using all these two dollar words! Are you saying that I have rocks in my mouth or in my brain? Betcha thought I didn't know what abstract means. Well, take it back. It means, ah, well... it means that you shouldn't drive a black car at speeds where dust turns into missiles and chips off that black paint showing the white undercoat. So there!
