I Found My Childhood Dream Car Rotting Away After 25 Years & The Owner Let Me Wash It! TA RESCUE!

Click here for the BIGGEST Ceramic Coating Sale EVER!
Don't miss the Avalon King Armor Shield IX Ceramic coating Black Friday blowout! It's the biggest sale they've done with savings of up to 45% and free products you won't want to miss. The sale ends November 30th, 2021.

Here's the "how to ceramic coat every surface of a car in 4 minutes" video.

I've always loved the F-Body Camaro and Firebird and what started this obsession is walking by a white LT1 Trans Am as a kid. About 25 years ago I remember this very car sitting in a driveway near my house and imagining that one day I'd own one. I ended up owning 3 including my current 2001 white WS6 Trans Am and I was shocked to find this car so many years later rotting away in the backyard of the same house. I thought he sold it 10-15 years ago but no, it's just rotting away. I finally ran into the owner and he is the nicest guy and let me wash the car for the first time in forever. Enjoy some extreme satisfaction!

    Number 8 was the old number that Dale Earnhardt Jr. Used back in those days when he raced along side his dad which was the number 3 car. Both were legendary drivers.

    ironically when a car sits and gets dirty like that its a good thing.. because the dirt itself protects the paint. And if the car was well coated with wax, the dirt doesnt penetrate the paint, the only thing that comes off when washed its those top layers of wax which again, ironically the dirt keeps in place. i know this as ive gone thru this with my own car sitting mostly exposed for years. I come home from abroad, wash down the car to be shocked that the wax and clear coat remain. the only areas of the pain that actually see damage, typically onion skinning are those areas where the dirt does not cover well the paint leaving it exposed to the sun.

    If I were you I would get a better power washer is leaking too much and you’re losing a lot of pressure that’s the reason why you’re so close whenever I detail a car I never get with them 4 inches or more closer to the car he looks like he’s about 2 inches off of the pain that’s a little too cold for my coffee but then again the pressure is not very great so I can understand that new power washer will clean better
