Re: Do you wash your own cars?

Yes, particularly when they're small like my Caterham Seven; when you're vertically challenged like me (5'4"), even I can reach over the bonnet. OK I drive other cars too, but I used to drive my caterham as my only car before the kids arrived. In terms of wax, i use Autoglym products; I'm not quite fanatical enough to use zymol and pay the prices. If Autoglym is ok for Aston Martin, Bentley, TVR, Jaguar etc, then who am I to argue. If I owned a Pebble Beach pre-war Alfa, Bugatti or Talbot-Lago, the I would use zymol; nut then I might just pay someone to do it if I could afford a Bugatti (PS I live 5 miles from the Bugatti Owners Club home).
