There is nothing like the open road. Sunsets may mean that the day is over, but the ride in most cases is just beginning. Have you ever been there where you just finished waxing your car, everything is perfectly clean and neat, and the sun its gradually setting? That moment where your car or truck looks perfect! There is not even one hair, spec of dust or pollen, not even one spot of extra wax in site. It looks perfect! It feels new! That feeling is one that not everyone will get the chance to experience. Say it is a Friday night, or even a week night, and you are about get in, and just go! It doesn’t matter where you are going, it doesn’t matter where you have been, its just the moment.
My favorite part when my car is spotless is that look of having fresh paint. I love how wax can bring out the deep color and shine of your car. The very color you fell in love with when you first got it, is now back and free of dirt. The paint almost looks wet as if it was just applied. You know nothing is going to stick to it because it is so smooth. You are going to turn heads because it is probably the cleanest thing on the road and you have spent more time on it than anyone else. You fire it up, let it idle a bit, then slowly pull out of your driveway and into the night.
Whenever I get in my car after a fresh shower, and myself and my car are both clean, I feel invincible! I feel perfect! I swear I even shift better just because the car is clean and I am not only more confident, but am completely calm and happy. It feels like there is no time. Nothing else matters. You don’t even have a destination or anyone with you. Its just you, your car, and the road. Not many people I think ever get to experience that. They won’t ever know how good it feels. You throw on some music, maybe a playlist of new songs just for cruising, and turn into that super hero version of yourself ready to stalk the night.
Whether your pushing an old school classic, a slammed import tuner, some American muscle, or even a lifted diesel with some mud tires on it, you have everything you need. Your vehicle is a reflection of you. It shows who you are, and it shows what people might not know about you. It is a part of what sets you free. You don’t need anyone or anything else because you have your moment. You make your own memories and you aren’t worried about time. You just get it, and you go. There is no looking back. There is no time!
