My beast, my baby...

My beast, my baby…

Sometime this week the new Mustang will turn over 5,000 miles.  I’m driving it quite a bit, and at a much faster pace than the last one.  That’s probably due to my distance to work and the incredible daily enjoyment of traveling absolutely anywhere.

Today the odometer read 4,8xx and before I knew it a lady started interuppting my music alerting me to a performance report.  Sure enough the odometer was at exactly 4,900 miles, I said Yes, and the report was sent to my email.  Amazing.

IMG_1766Foreseeing the 5,000 mile mark I made an appointment to get my car serviced this coming Monday, which led to detailing in hyper-mode.  The wheels, tires, engine, and all things touchable have been cleaned.  Husband Brad even chuckled when he saw me concentrating on various parts of the engine.  I’m quite proud of my front and back windows as it is no easy feat to clean those puppies, let alone get my middle-aged self out of the back seat.  Too funny.

Here is a list of the supplies I used today.  Q-Tips, Baby Wipes, Invisible Glass, Glass wipes, water, Maguiars Black tire coating, two big towels, three hand towels, paper towels, and $1 at the car wash.  Keep it clean and then it just needs a bit of a sponge bath.

This caused an additional sideways look.

And yes, #mcm is being posted on Sunday, because my demanding job seems to keep getting in the way of what I really want to do.

    Hooray for upcoming 5,000 mile milestone (no pun intended). I like that you’re enjoying The Beast so much that you’re reaching major milestones sooner than in the ’03.

    Like Brad, I had to chuckle, but for a different reason. Picturing you maneuvering in and out of the back seat to achieve spotless windows brought tears of laughter to my eyes. It reminded my of my own analogous vacation story when Jamie was so proud I was kayaking she wanted to take pics. I allowed pics of me in the boat only. No one, least of all me, wanted to see pics of me maneuvering my middle-aged body into or out of a canoe!

    You are my car idol. When the Honda dies – many years from now, with any luck – I hope to emulate just a smidgen of your passion, be more of a car person, and bestow on her successor a bit more TLC.

  2. That is one sassy looking car. Glad to see the Q – tips were used. I will be taking tips from you soo on how to clean my little lady. 🙂
