Yesterday, beyond a shadow of a doubt, I did. No snow here but a hell of a lot of mud. Wish I had a camera - dip a car in chocolate up to the windows and sprinkle it with hay and you get the idea.

Mine is very gross at the moment as well. Don't think I'll be buying a red car ever again, everything shows.

I have a red one

<-----

It was actually REALLY dirty with roadsalt, frozen snow, and the inside with lots of sand. The outside is not clean thanks to the recent storm but if my car leaked I'd have a makeshift beach.

I started such a thread a while ago, but here is my dirtiest car picture:





I don't have any interior shots because I keep the inside of the car quite clean and clean my mats and vacuum one every two weeks, so I wouldn't win the contest there.

The car is rarily dirty in the summer time, but one day I drove on a dirt road and it rained. It was no longer a blue car any more, but a nice dirt brown. :-)

Mine is covered under 10" of snow. I won't know how dirty it is until I dig it out.

Mine WAS thoroughly whitened by the salt before the snow storm. Now it's a little cleaner, but with more and more salt on the roads, it's going from edwardian grey to white again

LOL! Your right, you have the dirtiest exterior. But your only looking at an hour tops to have that thing looking spiffy again, BUT Oliver, well....Oliver is looking at hours and hours to clean that all up.

Oliver, dont you find that your car leaks a bit from underneath with the door sills missing like that? Or, perhaps all that stuff is used to soak it up

My vote is for Oliver.
