Default Shining Bright American cars

Can anyone explain why American drivers must kept cleaning their car
all the
time? Here in California street, looking around almost all the cars in
street,
most are shining bright. American drivers must be addicted driving
clean car. I know that AMericans are addicted to automobile. It seems
to me that driving fresh shining automobile are American addiction
next to eating and sport .I simply can't understand why Americans are
so addicted to fresh shining cars. Why they must kept their car clean
all the time?

California is not representative of the rest of the country in
practically anything.

Keeping a car spanky clean lowers its aerodynamic drag, thus reducing the
required road load horsepower and improving the brake specific fuel
consumption, thus lowering smog producing NOx and other noxius emissions,
thus improving the quality of regional airsheds and reducing the number of
asthma related illnesses.

It also preserves the appearance of the vehicle thus prolonging its economic
value and lowering its life cycle impact to own and operate, thus yielding
better return on investment, thus resulting on lower debt service costs,
thus strengthening our overall economy.

But thats not why I keep my car clean. I clean it because I want it to look
as nice as my nice clean bicycle.

Nor are Californians representative of California. At least in my case. We
keep our car paint protected from the nasty stuff in the atmosphere by
making sure there's a thin (usually thin, sometimes it can get rather thick)
coating of dust on all surfaces. This also saves on post-it notes, since I
can leave a message to my wife on our windows.

You've got to be a government bureaucrat of some type. I'm dizzy from that
awesome spin.

Maybe we need a late-night infomercial on How to Be a Usenet Troll.

Education, education, education.

Anyone who believes in a liberal media has never read the "Daily Oklahoman."

Why they must kept their car clean
all the time?

Because: the car is often an individual's most prized possession, and many feel
the car--the model, the accessories, the shinyness level--reflects
profoundly on the individual who drives it. They are
hoping, anyway, that it does.

Also, the serial car-washers have no sense that water is a scarce resource,
even while living in a desert.

In short, the frequency of car-washing episodes could
be just another symptom of an underlying stupidity that has swept across the
continent like a chinook wind through our amber waves of grain.
An ultra-clean bicycle, on the other hand, is a sign
of darker prospects: mental illness, crystal
meth addiction, or non-use of said bicycle.

Ah, thats what I thought too.

It means your soul has been sucked out by ridiculous consumerist values.
